First Time To Maxim Dim Sum At Sungai Dua, Penang

Third morning in Penang...

By now Andy is quite familiar with the island already, well, at least with some places of good food. After staying here for few years now, he knows at least 30% on how to go about ... hahaha....(have I mentioned he is poor in directions? Like mother, like son!)

Back to our 3rd morning or should I say 11am brunch time, he led us to Maxim Dim Sum in Sungai Dua...
First time in history...
my son recommended dim sum shop to us... 
it was quite crowded...but we managed to find a side table....
the shop is quite big... maybe two shops made into one...
Advertising for Tooth Paste Teeth before food....
Which picture is more qualifying for Tooth Paste Advertisement?
hahahaha...
oopps...why am I like WIB? or MIB?
(Woman in Black)
Our initial orders...
Adding some extras after few minutes.... 
And that's not all... 
There were more to that...no time to take pictures...
Our chopsticks were too busy... LOL...
And the best thing is.....
The bill only came to RM49 something!
So cheap that we came again the next morning to try other varieties...
How was the Dim Sum?
Well, we sure want to come again... 
No doubt about that!  :)

  1. Food in Penang are cheaper and definitely cheaper than in Kota Kinabalu. Dim Sum for less than RM50.00 is really really cheap.

  2. Whah....Claire, u look sexy in big black spectacles :D My gosh....those dimsum makes me drool. Looks too good....mmm. I miss Penang. Sg Dua? That's the place (don't mean the shop...haha) where I had my first dinner the day I arrived Penang. Actually it was very late dinner around 9pm....late huh. The only thing left was roti canai....never heard of before! Didn't know how it look like. I was given a choice of stuff to go with it. Finally chose sugai. My gosh.......how horrible it tasted......haha. But well, after 3 yrs not touching any roti canai, I fell in love with it one day after trying it with curry dhal. Then I had it EVERYDAY for breakfast for a whole year!!! How extreme huh!....haha

    Mary: Sugai? what is that to go with roti canai?? hahaha.. I also never heard of it.. normally roti canai goes well with curry fish, chicken or dhal. Nowadays I prefer capati and tosai cos healthier.. oil-less.. hehehe..


    lena: OK, I do that one day.. hahaa...

  5. Nice? Seems lots of nice eating places there...including one famous Thai restaurant, I think. But far from city lah...cannot go if no car, nobody to bring - taxi in Penang - daylight robbery.

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

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

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
