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!

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
