My Food Adventure In Penang

MISSING IN ACTION AGAIN?

Yeah, from my blog, that is... It has been a number of days since my last post.  Where was I?  What have I been doing all these while.... why am I so lazy when it comes to blogging now?  For all I know, I have been going here and there despite the virus-mania thingy.  Someone spread me some virus, I have been coughing out lots of endless phlegm, whitish in color, not greenish... urghhhh.. and I have been to the doctor who prescribed me a bout of antibiotics to clear my throat.. three types of cough mixture I had been consuming and what else.... hmmm.... oh, no fever... Thank God for that...

No, I did not go around spreading my germs, in fact I have been cooking a lot at home, porridge and stuff.. that was why no foodie posts.  And NOW... I AM BACK!  Back to my old self and going up north, eating whatever my heart desires, it is like paying back time!  My weighing scale just informed me that I have gained 2kg already!  Serious!  Anyway.... no regrets la.... It is good to be back in my eating form after astaining for so long!

Food that I took in Penang for the past few days....

From Habee's Kitchen, Nagore Road.... 
Something appetizing....
Fish slices in tomato broth...
I like the bitter gourd soup too....
Around RM14 per bowl... 
With "fu pei" RM8
I like economy noodles too....
This is taken in Tye Sin Street....
The taste of the noodles reminded me of my childhood days...
This meal set gives me full satisfaction!
Springroll and Lobak to go with the noodles....
Famous wanton noodles at Chulia Street.... 
Fragrance from the Lard!
Hawker vendor selling Yong Tau Foo.... 
 I yearned for it the next day but unfortunately it was not opened....
Followed by 5 pieces of Apom by an elderly lady just opposite the Wanton noodles.... 
One piece 50 sen....
Ended the meal with a bowl of cooling Ching Poh Leong at Kimberley Street.....
Next night we had Mala Hotpot at Xiang Guo Burma Road.... 
Oh, by the way, this does not belong to us..
The waiter took it away after realizing his mistake...
This is ours... not a nice sight, right?
Taste wise... ok ok but a bit pricey.. RM38 with one bowl of rice and drinks...
And this was taken at Moh Teng Pheow Nyonya Koay at Jalan Masjid....
I was super full that time... so I just ordered a plate of Ju Hu Char RM13

And a few Koays to go with my hot lemon honey.... 
How not to gain weight?
I have to justify the food with long walks in the evenings...
 Botanical Gardens, Bukit Dumbar and Ayer Itam Dam...
LOL...

  4. Good that you just stayed at home when you are not well until you have recovered to prevent spreading it to other people and to ensure you have ample time and rests. Tasty food! Sure gain weight if eat like that.

    You always ate more food than me in Penang and yet could walk the Botanical Gardens, Bukit Dumbar and Ayer Itam Dam!! I salute you.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
