Scenes Along Penang Roads

THE WEATHER WAS SUPER HOT IN PENANG.... however I prefer the sunshine over rain anytime.  Despite the hot air here on the island, we did not stay indoor to enjoy the cold air, we came out to do some sight seeing, driving along the busy roads in town.

Firstly we need to drop by here at the municipal to "donate" some money to them.  hahahahaa... Yes, we were here to pay a parking summon.  We did not mind paying the sum but we really do mind waiting for more than an hour just to pay the small sum.
Yes, free parking for customers using the kiosk but we just parked there anyway.  There was just one staff at the collection counter and we waited for more than an hour for our turn.  We made a mistake too... never ever go there during noon unless we bring along our iPad next time!  hahahaa..
Since I was not the driver, I have the privilege to take some pictures 
as the car moved through the roads along the city center....
But don't ask me exactly where and the name of the roads, I really do not remember... 
These are around the government office area....
Maybe Penangnites who read this post will enlighten us...
Can someone tell me what building this is?
I know this one... An old church way back long ago....
On the way to Bayview Hotel....am I right?
Colonial building....
Cititel Hotel along Penang Road... this one I sure know... 
hahahaa...
Driving along Penang Road, the heart of the city....
Around the corner....
Approaching Komtar Building... 
The tallest building in Penang with 65 storeys... 
The Komtar Tower....

  4. Eh next time go to Komtar to make the "donation" lah. They have a few counters there, so you don't need to wait that long!

    Eh eh eh, wrong wrong wrong. There should not be a next time for such occasion!

    Btw, hijack the comment a bit: you have any idea if those local delights in Ipoh, those taugeh chicken and kopi places, will they be open already on Nin Chor 5 (Friday)? I might bring a guest to explore Ipoh on that day, but if the food is not open then pretty pointless :/

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

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

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
