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.

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...
