The Sweet Temptations

Most of my friends know that I am ON for anything sweet...

A day before I left for Penang, someone sent me an email on the best desserts you can find in Penang. It is called Sweet Temptations...perfect name cos they were really tempting!!

When I browsed through the email, I said to myself.. yes.. yes... YES! I must go and try as many as I can when I'm there....

picture extracted from my email..
captured by a well known food blogger here
hope he will not sue me!!

this was taken by me when I went there
due to my super full dinner earlier,
I couldn't manage to try
as many as I said I would...

just look at the many pots displayed..
how to try all of them.. hahaha...
thank goodness, I often drop by Penang..
in time to come, hopefully I can try all..

And for that evening, I only managed
to try this fabulous bubur cha-cha
Really creamy and santan-ic
with lots of sweet potatoes, yam and sago..

727-F, Jalan Sungai Dua
11700 Gelugor,


  1. The bubur cha-cha certainly looks good. After that, you cha-cha-cha or not? LOL!!!

  2. wa...long time havent eat bubur caca jor...droool

  3. stp: i dont know cha cha one.. u gonna teach me? :)

    kathy: me too.. long time didnt eat so that night must order!

  4. i've not had bubur cha cha for such a long time! lol at STP! i've not cha-cha-cha for a very long long time too! :P

  5. Wonderful choice! I would have attacked the bubur cha cha too ;)

  6. merryn: come to Pg..stp will teach us!! hahaa...

    gratitude: same taste!

  7. I remember the last dessert stall near USM. Always had a bowl or two before going for lecture.

  8. Nice...must try if i ever drop by there..:)

  10. Ohhh... I'm one of these Tong Sui(sweet dessert) lover too! Thanks for sharing ya, sure drop by on our next visit!^-^

  11. mingna: this one newly opened in one of the residential houses in sg dua..

    nightwing: u from penang?

    sk: high 5 to u too!! Plak!

    alice: it is in a residential house just opposite tesco sg dua..

  12. The bubur cha-cha is similar to our Guinataan dish in the Philippines. It is cooked with coconut milk with plenty of yam, sweet potatoes, sago, banana, and sometimes even ripe jackfruit.

    Happy Monday!

  13. wow, really that much 'tong sui' , i guess you will have to come here very often to able to try out all of them and the bubur cha2 certainly looks very good!

  14. kero: yes, minus the jackfruit.. wow... i guess with that added too, it would be very nice too!

    Wow, those desserts in Penad look wonderful. Your post remind me of an Anthony Bourdain show. I hope you have a great time. Be sure to let us know what food your enjoyed.

  21. Indeed. A very sweet temptation. :)

  22. Come, Claire... I know how to cha cha... I teach u. Come, come.

    Hmm...the bubur cha cha looks very nice...but I prefer pulut hitam and the red bean tong sui more than bubur cha cha.

  23. penang, wif all its yummy food. Even desserts!

    My Stories

  27. wah...bubur chacha!!! my favorite! *drools*

  28. Ya... i think i'm gonna sue you, wakaka....but sue you is bcos you go for the Tong Sui and not inviting me....
    Anyway, I really dont know the review email from my blog already been until so far away...=.=lll
    And actually the Bu Bu Cha Cha can request put some crushed-ice(like ice kacang ice) so that it will be more different with the Bu Bu Cha Cha outside...i will upload the Icy Bu Bu Cha Cha photo soon.
    Hope that you can always visit my blog and click a LIKE on my Fans Page.

    P/S:I'm not a well-known food blogger actually, jz a tiny potato food blogger =P

  29. "Tim pan" is my favourite too. I would not know what to order when I get to that shop...So many choices...but the bubur cha cha...sure looks fab!

  30.'re just like me, sweeeeeeettttt!!! Better be careful, sugar is bad for you. Bad-bad-bad! Everything in moderation, ya? Or a trick I learned for diabetes is whenever you want to eat sugar, make sure you eat triple dose of leafy vegetables (before or after you eat the sugar) and it will neutralise the sugars immediately.

  31. wah wah wah ....really a lot of desserts.... and that bowl of bubur char char makes me felt like eating them!!

  32. Bubur cha looks yummy.
