One Day Foodie Trip To Penang

WEEKDAY GETAWAY...  It was last week on a Tuesday when we drove one and a half hours to Penang for a day trip.  We did not stay a night this time, just a few hours in fact, as the Malay saying goes:  Jalan-Jalan Cari Makan.  

If we did not go last week, I guess we would not be able to go from now on till don't-know-when since the cases of Covid has increased drastically for the past few days.  On the positive side, at least now we know where the cluster comes from unlike six months ago.  Anyway, advisable to take precaution again for us all.

Upon reaching Penang, our stomach were crying for food and our first stop is the food court right behind Royal Hotel.  One of the stalls there is famous for Hokkien Prawn Noodles.  The other time we did not manage to eat cos it was sold out.  This time we enjoyed savouring the noodles till the last bit.

Tasty broth with prawns... 
Yummy in our tummy.... first meal of the day... 
After that, we walked round a bit and 
bought some fresh-from-the-oven buns from
Continental Bakery around the corner... 
Second stop... 
Stopped by a shop called Seng Thor Lebuh Carnavon for fried oysters... 
Third stop... Sin Hwa Laksa at Pulau Tikus
Two bowls of Laksa to share...
And two plates of Char Koay Teow.... 
Phew... by then, our tummies could not hold anymore... 
The rest of the time, we bought foodstuff... 
Reached Ipoh in the evening...
And I had a mug of oats for dinner...
Rest my stomach and "detoxify"....
LOL...

  5. Be a good girl, stay at home. Best not to venture anywhere out of the house - looks like it is getting worse. I sure am getting worried as they still will not close down the schools. The risk is always looming over our heads! :(

Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t
