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 Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
