We Miss You, Till We Meet Again...

After our lunch in Penang Road, we went in search for the "famous" biscuits.... I sms-ed Eugene to find out the whereabouts of these tambun biscuits, the ones he bought for us the last time, they were very nice, fresh.... With his instructions, we managed to find the the shop opposite Bukit Jambul Plaza but unfortunately, they were all sold out.

But mind not, we went to the Jelutong side where they manufactured the biscuits! Aaron bought a few boxes for himself... his all-time favourite!

"the three musketeers"

compatible to the Him Heang biscuits...

Soon it was time to leave Penang.... we dropped Aaron in Queensbay Mall to meet up a friend.... with heavy hearts, we bade him goodbye.... I wonder how he was feeling the moment we drove away.... As for me, I was feeling kind of "empty" when we said our goodbyes... wishing he could go home with us too....



My two cute babies...

crossing the Penang Bridge... it was cloudy then...
just like our hearts.... moody too...

concentrating on his driving....
while yours truly dozed off... exhausted...

Today, I heard he is down with fever... sigh......
maybe too much durians and not enough water...
or maybe too exhausted??
Flying up and there within 24 hours!
Do take care, B and God Bless you...
Till we meet again in October....

  2. Your words reminded me of the time when I was posted to Johor, my car and my parents' went on separate ways on the last day of our gathering in KL. Filled with emptiness, we didn't want to leave for our respective destinations but we simply had to... It was indeed painful.

  4. Saying goodbye always come with a weird emotion...empty is not the word for me but probably the longing to catch a glimpse of that someone, the desire to want to just be around a little longer...
    I always remember how it feels to say goodbye to my family when I first went to UM for my studies...

  9. Hi Reana, my wife adores those biscuits. Not me.
    I have always loved Penang, and just before leaving the country, took one last trip there to eat all those Penang well known dishes.

    But I always prefer go on the ferry....hardly on the bridge.
    I guess Penang has changed a lot today.
    Best regards, Lee.

  12. Hi Claire, Yes----saying goodbye to the ones we love is never easy.. I still miss my sons so much --and they are grown and have been gone from home for many years. You do get to see them again --but you still are sad when you have to leave them each time.

    Those biscuits sound YUMMY.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  21. I can imagine the heavy hearts! I feel the same every time I leave my hometown too :( Till you guys meet again! Btw, you must try Him Heang tambun biscuits! They're the BEST! :)

  22. Saying goodbye is never easy but for your case is easy lah only 2 hours drive away. Was juz kidding with suituapui some time back that all the tambun biscuits in Penang got the 'heang' viz Him Heang, Ghee Heang & Chuan Peng Heang etc etc and would be nice to set up 'tuapui heang' in Sibu but our STP not interested woh. Next time try this one 'Eugene Heang' not bad leh! hehe. Those without the 'Heang' cant be popular in Penang meh? Cant recall the exact name of the shop in Kuantan Road got something 'Dragon'...not sure got 'heang' or not?

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...
