"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.

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

  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

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
