Penang Time Tunnel In Georgetown, Penang

After our satisfying lunch, we checked into the Royal Hotel and rested for a short while before we set out again.  Initially we did not have any specific plans on where we wanted to go upon reaching Penang.  At the hotel lobby we "chanced upon" a brochure promoting Penang Time Tunnel.  I never heard of it and the two kids I brought along seemed to be very interested.... so.....

HERE WE ARE!!
 At the entrance of Penang Time Tunnel along Jalan Green Hall, Georgetown....
 At the entrance, my nephew looked like he wanted to start a "conversation...."
And after getting no response, he went to purchase the entrance tickets to the TimeTunnel...
For adults, it cost RM14 (for Malaysians)
Those with student cards, entrance fee is RM10...
They were given a form whereby there are some questions about Penang history...
Answers are there on the wall...
Look at my nephew... engrossed...
Soon ... the questions are forgotten...
They are more interested in the figurines... 
Very educational indeed....
Soon we were led to another door...
Entertainment time!
The ladies were given a "free ride"
and someone suddenly became the "Trishaw" rider...
Thanks to the friendly staff there...
They took pictures of us...
We also "stopped" to have a cup of coffee.... 
Thank you, Uncle...
Back to the 1960s.....
Hey... MR. BEAN IS ALSO THERE!!
UP for Jest!
His favourite POSE!
As for me, I rather take a ride with the Penang CM.....
OOOOPSSS...!!
Sorry Mr. CM... I know I am not supposed to sit behind...
Especially after a HEAVY LUNCH!


To be continued....

  5. This place is the coolest!!! The ticket man does not look real for a start! Are they wax figures, like in a wax museum? The most fun part is getting yourself in on the action, and being a part of it. Wish I could go!!

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 here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
