Nyonya Food In Penang

ONE DAY TRIP to the Pearl of the Orient.... 

The drive only took less than two hours from Ipoh to Penang, so it is not surprising that we took a day off to visit this island for food!

Yes, it was food all the way, from breakfast till late afternoon, we took three meals and for dinner, we could only packet the food home... we just couldn't stomach any more, not like our younger days anymore... LOL....

After our breakfast which consisted of Koay Teow Thng at 113, Lebuh Melayu, we took a walk along the  esplanade.  To our delight, the cruise ship was docked along the esplanade... I miss the cruise I had with the Royal Caribbean in 2019, I would love to go on a cruise again... and of course, with the right group of people.  That would be so much fun.... 
When will I see you again.... 
Love this picture cos of the birdie flying across at the right moment... 
In front of the Penang Town Hall....

After our walk, lunch was at Baba Phang.... 
Curry stingray.... 
I like this dish... 
Kerabu styled with kacang botol.... 
Sweet, sourish and spicy....
Lobak.... 
Inchikabin... Fried Chicken.... 
Ju Hu Char... Fried Jicama...

Nasi Ulam....
Rice with mixed raw vegetables and spices... 
Otak Otak... 
Lunch for the four of us...
Total came to around RM150...
This is the third time eating at Baba Phang...
I guess it is time to try other Nyonya restaurants the next time round...

  3. I loved the Koay Teow Thng at a dark and murky coffee shop near Cititel at Penang Road. 2009, they charged 40 sen per head if you did not order any drinks. Tried one expensive nyonya place in Penang , so disappointing. Same in Melaka - the old place that I loved so much a long time ago is not nice anymore, lots of Singaporeans there. So far, I loved the one at Amcorp Mall in KL/PJ - very nice!

    Btw, best avoided, all cruises. My cousin and her hubby in Australia went on one to Japan and COVID broke out on board and they were confined to the ship for a month.. Such a scary experience!!!

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
