Mothers' Day Weekend In Penang, Pearl Of The Orient

Took a short trip to the Pearl Of The Orient with my family yesterday.  Started off the journey around 10am and reached Penang around noon.  The bridge was not jammed but the road leading to Green Lane was kind of hectic.
 
Smooth traffic....
Reached the hotel around 2pm after taking our lunch in Ah Ling's fried koay teow in Datuk Kramat Road.  At the lobby, I met up with one of FB friends was waiting at the lobby... Nice of him to drop by to meet up for a short while... Thanks for coming by, AL...
After he left, we adjourned for Laksa... this is the BEST I have tasted so far in Penang...
Opposite Peng Hwa School at Gottlieb Road... "BESTEST"... LOL...
From our hotel room at 12th floor... nice scenery...
Overlooking a small portion of the sea...
Mountains at the left side....
Then we rested for awhile before going for our dinner at 6.30pm...
 Lok-Lok to start off our dinner in the evening....
Then we adjourned to Kimberley Street for Koay Teow Th'ng
Not really a fan of this... but ate a bit to try....
Some desserts as usual....
Ended up in Paragon Gurney to digest.....
Morning buffet breakfast..... took a bit.. such as 2 half boiled eggs.... 
And a bowl of porridge....
And ended up eating again at New World Park.....
Dropped by at Straits Quay.... and ended up doing some shopping there...
Well, that is about all....
A brief summary of our one night stay in Penang...,
Happy Mother's Day!!

  13. Wah, still gallivanting ahh? Jealous leh.. Yesterday was just another ordinary day for me, stayed home only.. Boring hor? But we went out for a nice dinner on Saturday though.. But with two babies around, we couldn't enjoy very much, had to swallow the food and shout & nag like a crazy old hag the whole evening.. Even the waitresses pitied us and kept reminding me "Your baby's leg is out of the hi-chair".. Gawd..
    OMG, I love everything you ate.. I love that laksa, but will usually omit the "har kou".. Smelly leh, teehee.. And yep, kuey teow thn'g, can't miss that in Penang, will usually order 2 bowls.. One with just the "liew" only, slurrrpp...

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....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
