Second Bridge Penang And Teochew Cendol

After the scrumptious lunch in Nibong Tebal, we proceeded on with our journey to Penang Island. For the first time, we took the New Bridge and it led us to Batu Maung...
The toll that led us to the new bridge....
Called The Sultan Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah
or Penang Second Bridge as it is commonly known...
Surprisingly it was very quiet on a weekday....
 a great contrast compared to the first Penang bridge...
Not a car in sight.....
I heard it was filled with 60,000 people just last Sunday Marathon...
I heard the toll rate for this bridge is more....  a distance of 42 KM?
Reaching Penang, we went to Prangin Mall to get something done....
And while we were down, we chanced upon this place...
They opened a branch here in the mall?  
At least we don't have to queue up in the hot sun...
Penang Famous Cendol.....
One bowl cost RM3.90
Slightly more than the Penang Road.....
I don't mind paying a bit more to enjoy this cooling drink here......
Nice scenery... comfortable and chilling...
COOL!!

  3. At first I told you wrote Paradigm Mall because it also has this same cendol stall. Then I thought, eh, Paradigm Mall is not in Penang and then I thought you were in KL. Me so blur. Then only I read carefully it is Pragin Mall. I also prefer to pay more to eat in comfort.

  5. When I see cendol I straightaway think of SS15 cendol.. Very famous cendol and rojak (they're always together), and people have to queue up for the rojak.. Everyday super long queue leh...

  8. Not 42km lah, the official distance is 25km. The full marathon runners run almost the entire stretch and then turn back. Not many people uses this bridge yet, even on weekends. Unless you are in Batu Maung area, using this bridge is more inconvenient that the first bridge. The distance is longer, and you need to get through many traffic lights/road construction to get there. Maybe more people will use it once that flyover is completed.

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
