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.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
