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....

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm.......

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t
