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.

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

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... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
