"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...

  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

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...
