Penang Road and Freeschool Garden, Penang

The next morning we had breakfast in Kheng Phin coffeeshop along Penang Road... actually I wanted another bowl of Koay Teow Th'ng before leaving for Ipoh but unfortunately, there isn't any in this shop...
I ended up ordering a plate of fried koay teow instead.... 
Their beansprouts are very similar to the Ipoh ones already....
Must not leave Penang without some lobak in the stomach....
But too bad the Yam was already sold out by then....
Saw a vendor selling Mua Chee at the pavement walkway....
Couldn't resist... they were still warm, that's the way I like it.... 
 
After our brunch, we came to this place.... 
Flea Market!
Interesting stuff being sold there....
More on handicraft...
Soon it was time for us to leave.....
Passed by Freeschool Garden.....
And we stopped by here for some food... and desserts...
Well, I guess I could not leave Penang without another bowl of my favourite noodles....
Don't know when I will make another short trip again.....

  3. hahaha, how can one miss out Char Koay Teow and Lobak in Penang?? but it seems like this statement is not true to you, to the Food Mayor of Ipoh, she says "How can I miss out Koay Teow Thng in Penang??" instead.. and oh, i like that Mua Chee, it comes with sesame too, ah, even the so-called "most famous" one in KL along Petaling Street doesn't have sesame in it..

  5. It is an interesting place. Big huge skyscrapers right alongside small stalls and a market. Like many different neighborhoods all combined.

    1. It is town area so it is kind of commercialized...

  6. Ahhhhh!!!! My favourite coffee shop! So old, so dark and murky...but the food from all the stalls...so nice. Best not to go around lunchtime - the lobak, like being given away free....mad scramble for anything that came out of the wok.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
