Gurney Breakfast And Penang Road Lunch

The very next morning, the three of them went for the complimentary buffet breakfast at the Gurney Hotel. My girl and I "sacrificed" ourselves and instead had a longer sleep in bed. After we checked out at around 11 plus, our stomach were already "growling." I wanted to eat at somewhere near our hotel but my girl insisted on going to Penang Road... all for Cendol... sigh..

as usual Penang Road is always jammed up with limited parking
and we had to walk quite a distance...

along the way, with a camera in hand...
what better thing to do than to take pictures, right?

we kept on walking and walking....
under the hot blazing sun....

ok... going to approach the shop.... soon...

nearer and near-er......

Finally reached....
the cendol stall hidden by customers...

walked all the way for this bowl of CENDOL!!

and laksa!!
the top 7th most popular food in the whole world!

Very quickly I ordered this to quench my hunger..

But a look on my sons' faces...
not a very positive sign, right?

Either they were still very full from their buffet breakfast
the food in Penang Road is not what they expected anymore...
So which is which?


  1. The kuey Teow th'ng looked neither appealing nor authentic. My favourite kuey teow th'ng stall is Ah Hor's at Lebuh Carnavon.

  2. Hahahaha!!! Ask your sons to come to Sibu and eat what we have here. Sure smiling from ear to ear....

  3. ken: not so sweet already...

    pam: yes, i think i know which one you meant.. it is along the five foot way?

    stp: hehehee... singing.. I believe I can fly...

  4. so proud of our penang laksa!

  5. pam: do you know, nearby there, there is one old couple selling egg tarts? and ma lai koe?

    lena: something good in laksa actually..

  6. Usually... I prefer those hawker western food when I'm in Penang... dono why... feel more sedap than those laksa, oh chien and whatnot. Some places really overrated and not really nice. I yet to blog about my trip to Penang oso. Hmmm...

  7. all the best food in penang are hidden in secluded corners and lanes, must have somebody who knows the way well before you can enjoy the true taste~~ :)

  8. Eh, did you meet up with Eugene again during this trip?

  9. cleff: yes, the lorongs and the lanes have the food..

    sk: i have yet to find out.. next time must consult Eugene

    Irene: no, I didnt.. no time lar.. dont want to kacau him also.. paiseh..

  10. Hahaha....I have been here before. The chendol was damn good!

  11. i would love that cendol and laksa!

  12. my trip to penang did not lead me to good food oso.. hopefully if i do drop by penang again, i'll get something nice.. at least a cendol lah :)

  13. I never heard about Cendol. It certainly doesn't look like anything I have eaten before.


  14. O.k., what IS cendol? And what is laksa? we never hear of them here. They look like soup of some kind? What is it that you got, that looks like the best of all!! Some kind of chicken soup or stew?

  15. chris: for tourists like us la..

    wenn: the laksa noodles a bit too soft this time..

    merryn: yes! you must go again!

    isaac: not so sweet liow..

    filip: this is an asian dessert.. with coconut milk and red beans..

    ginny: these are asian food, laksa is spicy and cendol is sweet dessert..

  16. wow!
    I'm now hungry, mmmmmm

    visiting you ms.claire :)

  17. Such a happy meal we could share!

  18. You know what sis, we have a street similar to the feel and facade in Penang it is is Vigan, Philippines.

    The city government has passed a provincial resolution to restore & maintain the old facade of the houses and buildings to preserve the rich past and history of the place.

  19. But the cendol and laksa still make me drooling over here. You are blamed for making me taking my reserved lunch early by half an hour.

  20. Pulled a fast one on my Taiwanese counter part once saying cendol is green earthworm..hehe.

  21. yogi: come lets eat!!

    cloudia: greetings!!

    cielo: yes, same here.. preserve the heritage buildings!

    stella: *drool*

    yan: great!! then have early dinner too..

    bananaz: yes, last time when young, i was also told that!

  22. give me a bowl of Penang Laksa please, salivated here, YUm!

  23. Thanks heavens they didn't have the audacity to claim asam laksa as their own ;)

  24. wahahahahhaha. i NEVER liked asam laksa, ESPECIALLY PENANG one. wakakakakakakaka. i like sarawak laksa though.

  25. sonia: i m sure u can cook better!! :)

    gratitude: meaning?

    medie: sarawak laksa is like curry over here, right?

  26. Maybe the food in Penang is not that nice after all... :p

  27. tekkaus, dont go to tourists area..

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
