Ken The Food Hunter Of Penang

Not too long ago, I got to know this young guy from blogging, he is from Penang, a young and enterprising guy. Finally I got to meet up with him after several "failed attempts".. LOL... I am so glad that this trip is not so hectic as the previous ones and after catching him in Facebook yesterday morning, we arranged to meet up finally! He picked me up from the hotel around noon and from there, he took me to several places around town... so nice of him!

I told him that I yearned for a bowl of exotic laksa and he gladly took me to this place the locals eat... Oh, I didn't catch the name of the shop, all I know it is in Pulau Tikus, not the ones the tourists go to, Lorong Selamat, Air Itam, Penang Road...etc etc..
This is the one....
They have fried stuff to go with the laksa....
There!!   The Exotic Laksa!
Now seeing this, I need to "swallow" you-know-what!  hahahaa...
I prefer mine without any shrimp paste....
The first question I asked when I stepped into his car was...
"hey, you are so fair, you just came back from overseas?"
His fair skin and "pimple-less" face puts me to shame! 
hahahaa..
Next he took me to buy some local goodies... 
He used to buy from here, pay less and more tasty!
ahaa... Our Goodies Galore!
Next time I know how to come here already...
Shop name is Fook Loke Sau along Nordin Road...
Next we adjourned to this famous cafe called Moustache Houze!
Both of us are "Dessert Lovers"
And he recommended Tiramisu.... hmmmm.....
I think I finished most of it before he had a chance to do so... 
hahahaa...
We had a good hour here chatting non-stop.....
So much to learn from him too!
Thank you, Ken for your time, taking me round and round, here and ther ....
Hope we can catch up again one day...

    4. SP? My daughter was there since 2007 till 2012...and I did not get to meet any blogger there, dunno of any. Ah yes! There was a Dr Bernard but he's not actively blogging anymore...and originally from Kulim or BM, if I'm not mistaken, working in SP.

  3. Main reason going to Penang is meeting up with your blogger friend and not looking for your camera as claimed. Oh yes, he is a handsome young man. So special got prawn fritters to go with the laksa but I prefer to eat it with chilli sauce.

    1. SK, next time you look him up.. he is the youngest food mayor in Penang...

  13. ...after several "failed attempts"? Wahhhhh!!!! So hard to get to meet this VVIP kah? Ok, he's taller...and a lot slimmer than his photos elsewhere. Maybe he kept having his photos taken with pencil-thin young girls wearing 6 inch heels, so he looked fatter and shorter.

    Wahhhhhh!!!! Took you on a food tour kah? So nice of him! I want also leh....

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... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
