"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

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
