My Nearly Illegal Parking In Penang

Wake up Sleepy Jeans... and for this case, wake up SONS!

It was a bright cheery Sunday morning in Penang when I finally got up to open the curtains in our hotel room...  We are used to staying in Royal Hotel along Anson Road and for 2015, the room rates has indeed increased.  The last time we stayed was in November, it was RM180 then.. but last week, it has gone up to around RM210... hhmmmm..
 The scenery from our hotel window... 
Bright skies looming above the island...
Time for our breakfast....
But we didn't settle for the hotel buffet...
We set out for hawker delights instead...
While waiting for our Koay Teow Th'ng to arrive, we had these as starters..!

Koay Teow Th'ng off Carnavon Street.... 
Our usual place... it was crowded..
Didn't mind waiting for awhile...
"Mom, I think I have to order another bowl.... "
And we did.... actually...
Oh dear... 
these were only what was left when I realized that I didn't take any pictures... 
After our so-called breakfast, we walked a short distance to look for this "auntie:"

My kids love her mini egg tarts....
We bought two packets of 10's... RM5 for each packet...
There were other snacks...
But the mini egg tarts were just what we needed then...
Next... we came by here... for sight seeing...
We thought we got a nice parking at the side of this building...
but were "deterred" .....
We were told to reverse our car out...
And we obediently did....
But all was good after reversing...
We managed to get a parking just across the road...
In the end... All well ends well...

  1. Gee! Everyone's blogging about these egg tarts:

    Can't say I like the look...but of course, can't judge by appearance. Must taste, then one will know good or not good. The kway teow th'ng sure looks good, that I would say.

  2. Hmm. Same place with where Merryn got her mini tarts??

    Nice breakfast and sight seeing although need to park a bit and walk. I prefer have breakfast in hawkers' stalls than in hotel. Can taste the local food.

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....

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

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond
