Dinner At KhunThai, Teluk Kumbar, Penang

FOR DINNER MY GIRL SUGGESTED THAI FOOD AND SHE JUST KNOWS WHICH ONE TO GO... It is called KhunThai Authentic Thai Restaurant in Teluk Kumbar.  I have heard of it only recently when one of my foodie friends went there with her family.  But we did not know the way and Waze sort of assisted us along the way.  But along the way, we were led to a small village that did not lead us to Khunthai, instead it was a dead end... So much for Waze!   hahahaha... Somehow we managed to find it after reversing our car to where we have turned .... At the junction, we noticed a small sign showing drivers not to turn into the village, instead just drive on straight using the main road instead of going through the village..... Perhaps GPS always led patrons to go through the village, thus the sign....

Anyway, it was worth going there for something new and authentic.... 
We were enthralled by the ambience..... 
So beautiful to dine by the sea.... 
Looks very authentic....
And our orders were....
These five dishes.... 

Kerabu mango.... lots of cashew nuts... very appetizing!
Steamed fish Thai style....
I find the sauce a bit too sweet... 
Fried Kangkung with red sauce...
Glass noodles with prawns....
The food was not bad actually....
We wanted to order more but we might not be able to finish them all....
The dinner for five dishes cost around RM108....
Smiles to the Thai Food.... 
Maybe one day we will come by again to taste other dishes...
Tom yam and green curry are the recommended ones, so I was told...

  2. Wow, so nice dining on the beach. I like the kerabu mango, very appetising. Thai food usually hot,spicy & sourish & how come the steamed fish sauce taste sweet. All in all everything is good,

    1. Yes, the fish a bit sweet and also sour.. I prefer it to be sourish only... maybe not used to its sweetness...

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…
