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! :(

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 here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
