"Chilling Out" In Free School Food Court, Penang

It was a very hot Sunday and I felt like "burning" in my body... so thirsty after taking the Balik Pulau durians... maybe got "MSG" in them... hahahahaa...  

My friend and I drove back to town and we landed in our favourite hangout, that is the Free School Garden food court.
A very "hot" place to chill out here.. cos lots of food sold in this food court...
The first one caught my attention...
Nutmeg Juice...
First time tasting it... 
Very quenching....
But one glass is not enough for me... 
I ordered a waterchestnut drink as well.....
and my friend ordered Ice Kacang
which is not so quenching but with lots of "ingredients"
We shared a bowl of Glassnoodles...
Cos we were still very "Durian-full.....
By the way, does anyone know what fruit these are?
They are not duku langsat....
Are they Pulasan?
I should have bought some and try...

  1. not pulasan... Pulasan looks like rambutan, with coarser hairs... this looks like buah setoi/sentol

  7. You nearly make me fall off my chair, hahaha...durian got MSG. Maybe the ones planted by you. I think the sweetness of the durians makes you thirsty. I like buah kendodong to nutmeg drinks. Doesn't nutmeg has a type of smell. Anyway, it looks so refreshing to quench your thirst in this hot day. That fruit belongs to the langsat family, maybe langsat susu.

    1. Yes, I think the sweetness made me thirst for two glasses of water... they quenched my thirst after that... Nutmeg has its bittersweet taste...

  8. Is this the school canteen or some place near the school using the name? Was at Bukit Bintang Boys' in KL in 1986, so surprised the canteen had stalls...like in a food court. Nothing like that here.

    1. No, it is a food court not a canteen.. but the Freeschool is nearby... perhaps that is how they got the name.. or perhaps it is near to the residential garden...

    1. Too Hau Hort... so cannot wait for the ice kacang to cool me down.. hehehe..

  11. Hmm, why not Ambra juice, that one is more effective for cooling down, as far as I know :P
    I never go to this food court before, usually when we go to the Free School area, it is either my mates looking for laksa, or we all looking for authentic Korean food. There a Korean restaurant there that is run by a Korean auntie.

    1. Free School area is actually what? Not a food court? Must ask for your directions.. so that next time I can go.. :)

    2. Nah... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Penang_Free_School
      It is a school name lah, it was supposed to be the first school in Penang that founded to allow all race and religion students to join. I think back then all the schools were only for the elite and royal Malays.

    3. Claire knows that Free School is a school. I think she was asking what is the name of this food court near the Free School.

    4. Alamak.. I am so blur today.. I don't know what I am reading.. side effect of chasing 20 episodes of anime @.@

  14. I have never tasted nutmeg juice. Must be nice because I like those pickled nutmegs.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Wow, you are really thirsty to drink two glasses of drinks. I have never been to this food court in Free School area. Next time I go Penang, must go there to eat what Claire ate. :)

  16. I have eaten the fruit. It is very sweet. I was told it is Duku but not langsat. I know langsat, duku or longkong are quite similar. Langsat is smaller than duku. I found through googling that one can tell the which is which by the leaves on their trees.

  17. I had never heard of this place. Thanks for telling this Penang Kia. Lol

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
