Jelutong Market And Ayer Itam Delights, Penang

ONE MORNING MY FRIEND TOOK ME TO THE JELUTONG MARKET ONE MORNING FOR BREAKFAST.... It was my first time there and as we walked along, there were a number of stalls which caught my eye.  Since it was morning, every stall that I passed by made me very hungry.... finally we settled somewhere in the middle where I could slowly checked out what attracted me most...
These stalls reminded me of my childhood days where I stayed just opposite the town market..
Now those stalls are all shifted into an indoor complex....
Unlike the Jelutong market here... 

Patrons can sit here at their own leisure time to enjoy their breakfast... 
We sat directly in front of this stall selling Apom Balik...
We bought two pieces and before I could take pictures of them, 
they went into our tummies already....
Too late...
I had Hokkien mee again!! 
This time my noodles are those of the instant ones.... 
Each bowl is RM4...
Love the heavy garnishing on top...
My friend ordered the Lam Mee... I tried a bit.. and I like the soup base...

Fast forward to afternoon.... I was yearning for a bowl of Laksa and I remember there is one stall in Ayer Itam that suits my taste buds....
We had to find a shady area along a side lane.... 
We ordered a bowl of Koay Teow Th'ng with Duck and Porky meat plus innards... 
And a bowl of Laksa as appetizer!
Now come to think of it, my Penang trip this time is filled 
with the same type of food but from different locations.... 
And I guess I will carry on eating the same thing over and over again... 
hahahaha....

  2. Wow, you sure know how to travel all around Penang for good food now. Ayer Itam really is very jam so we don't dare to drive there when we are in Penang.

  3. I see the things still inside the intestines. Not bitter?

    The food at such places is always the best but I would need a fan! No need for air-con, just a fan...or I would be sweating plus-plus...and like our good friend on KL, those stools...cannot tahan lah. Same thing, me! Hehehehehehe!!!!!

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....

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...
