Our Room At Royal Hotel, Penang

Whenever I go to Penang, I either stay in B-Suite Hotel, Bayan Lepas or Royal Hotel in town. But ever since Andy finished his college, I did not go to B-Suite anymore... staying in town is more convenient for us to move about.  I like Royal Hotel, basically due to the reason it is near to Penang Road where food is easily accessible...

The hotel rates have increased no doubt... but thankfully, it is still less than RM200 for me, I can still afford a night or two.. anything more than that, we have to stay somewhere cheaper... :)  I have been staying in this hotel for more than a decade now, it has changed its name a few times, it does not matter to me, the rooms are still the same... but the reception is definitely different..
We were staying on the 14th floor that day.... 
Center view from the room....


Right view.... towards the sea...
Left view....all land.....
We prefer the King size bed than two singles....
We manage to squeeze up in one bed.. hahaha...
Happiest when he saw his favourite!
But too bad... none of us  is taking him to KL to watch.... 
Next morning breakfast buffet.... my appetizer.... 
Just couldn't eat much of anything..... 
But he certainly can... 
A double portion of everything he took...!
This is what I called Generation Gap!
Hahahaa...

  4. Don't bluff la, you cannot eat much? Did the Kucing family broke you down too comprehensively? :D
    Omg WWE, I haven't watched that show in ages! For me, that fake fighting show is for school kids, because they can only cheat school kids level into thinking it is real!
    I used to book B-suite for friends, my company badge can get 10% discount plus upgrade to bigger room, but that privilege ended last year. Let me check what hotels that I can get corporate rate nowadays :D

  5. I stayed in B-suite once. Room is just too big for 3 of us that it seems rather eerie. Wow, your hotel room has a very good view. Growing kid of course must eat a lot. You did not eat much for breakfast because you are saving up to attack Penang street food, right?

    1. Mun, I guess you can understand me pretty well... Small stomach so must save space for other stuff....b-suite eerie? Why? Too big?

      Delete
    2. Yes, too big so there was just too much empty spaces in the room even when there were 3 of us staying in just one room.

    3. Cos it is supposed to be a suite.. that is why it is big.. can fit 10 people especially youngsters where they can budget if they don't mind sleeping on the floor.. :)

  6. Less than RM200? Wow. Room looks spacious some more.

  8. Yes. Nice window view. I also prefer king size or super king bed when stay in hotel. 4 of us can squeeze into it. But next time we will need extra bed if Jamie is tagging along. ^^

  10. This Royal Hotel has changed hands several times from originally Merlin to Sheraton and dunno what else. I agree that their location is nice. You can try City Bayview Hotel as sometimes you also get the seaview under RM200 and location is good too. Their breakfast buffet is really good and makes a fussy food blogger like you happy!

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
