Eastern & Oriental Hotel In Penang

Andy went out to celebrate with his friends... he has not seen them for a long time and he sure wants to make full use of the time to catch up....So... where shall I go with Aaron?  We too wanted to celebrate in our own way!  hahahaa.... 

Not wanting to be left out, both of us made a reservation with E&O Hotel at Lebuh Farquhar, Penang... Both of us had never been there and this was quite exciting for us... We reached the hotel around 7pm and before we adjourned to the Sarkies Corner for buffet, we walked around the vicinity of the hotel.....
From the parking lot on the second floor, it looks so "caribbean".....
Then the real thing.....
We walked for some distance .... 
(To lose some calories!)
I'm glad I was wearing something "loose" that evening... 
hahahaa....
The British Colonial Style....
I like this jetty......
I wonder how much is per room per night.....
This was taken when we left the buffet corner to take a "breather"....
Very Victorian styled....
Wow... we took many pictures actually.....
Cos we don't know when we would be back here again!
Beautiful ambience...
 Love this sight during the twilight.....

  2. You made the right choice for your celebration. Very romantic place. Can imagine the lovebirds in the love storybooks holding hands....walking along the beach and the garden...... under the moonlit sky..... listening to the lapping of the waves........

  3. Nice hotel with beautiful scenery. Last pix, looks like it reaches out to the sea. Sure it's a nice buffet dinner with mother & son bonding time.

  4. The hotel's surroundings sure look beautiful. Can see you have a great time bonding with your elder son. Will the next post be about the food at the buffet dinner?

  5. The pictures of you and Aaron are my favorite. But next I love the black silhouettes of the palm trees with the pale blue background, so beautiful! We do not have palm trees, they will not grow in this climate. They are in Florida and California though.

  7. Hmm, I have never been there for dinner, but a few times for lunch buffet. Maybe go too many times, I don't feel it is nice anymore, I prefer Straights Quay nowadays, because of the boats :D

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 …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
