A Bitter And Sweet Experience In Kimberley Street, Penang

THE EVENING WAS STILL YOUNG WHEN our dinner was safely tucked in... what I need then was something cooling and one shop in Kimberley Street came to my mind.

It was a weekday so the street was not as busy as during the weekends....
But I said it a bit too soon... 
An hour later, I saw a tourist bus passing by... with full of passengers...
Stopped by here to have black herbal jelly and tea.... 
Then we walked along the street to see what they have in store...
And I was made to stop here.... thought it was just to look see....
Then someone mentioned... "RM10 for 3.. cheap cheap!"
And they have places to sit to enjoy the fruit king...
Eventually I couldn't resist too....
They tasted so Bitter... and I love the bitterness in them!!
Small durians no doubt... after all, RM10 for 3... 
What to expect... 
Anyway, three or not, we could not finish them all.... 
Walked further down, we saw more stalls... but my tummy was just too full to tuck in anymore...
Food, I mean...
Though they looked kind of tempting....
But I could still tuck in a bowl of "Sweetness"
As for the durians, they are kept till the next day to go with my lunch!
This is what I called a Bitter And Sweet Experience... :)


  1. Now, now! Durian is definitely not cooling! :D

  2. 10 ringgit for 3...WB should see this then...kakaka :) looks good though

    1. See First Garden got already or not... hehee

  3. Aiyoyo! Durian season again! I am going to go gila hah..hah..hah...

  4. I like bitter durians too! So nice! I also want to go and eat 3 durians for RM10 only.

    1. I hear the natural durians, growing wild, have a hint of bitterness amidst the sweetness - much nicer than those hybrids. A lot of people prefer these.

    2. Yeah, I prefer those wild ones... natural ones... with worms also never mind.. hahaha

  5. Ahhhh... durian! I'll be going to Penang in two weeks time. Wanna go makan some durians too :D

  6. Wah now is durian season ho?

  7. You want "liu lian", don't go to Georgetown ya, Penang "liu lian" comes from Balik Pulau, they get more expensive the further north you go. Stick to Bayan Lepas area, you can get cheaper and bigger. Or better, go straight to Balik Pulau, to those durian orchards :P ...

    1. Yeah.. we went to Balik Pulau too... hehehe..

  8. Durians! So cheap in Penang. Over here I see weighing machine at every stalls!

  9. Durian! Cheap.

    I want that bowl of tong sui.

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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

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...
