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 :/

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

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
