Giant Wheels At BP Anjung Indah, Balik Pulau

THE HAKKA VILLAGE WAS SOON FORGOTTEN BY US... We aborted our plan to go into the village after hearing that private cars cannot go up, we have to go to this village via the Land Rover.  The roads are narrow, we were told... so with tummies full after two durians, we made our way back to town.  This time we took another way back and on the way we passed through Betong village....

Through Betong village leading to Balik Pulau... 
Soon we arrived at Balik Pulau.. looking for Laksa... 
It was almost 3pm...
Unfortunately Laksa was already sold out ... 
Found this mural painting near the Laksa shop instead...
Half way down from Balik Pulau, we stopped at the stalls to take this scenery... 
There was a road leading uphill to a Thai restaurant called BP Anjung Indah...
Since we arrived at odd hours, there was no patrons as yet.... 
We just walked around adding memories to our camera... 
And wondering why there are so many bullock wheels here... 
The wheels as Big as yours truly.... 
The scenery at night must be spectacular up here... 
No, we did not have dinner at this place...
Perhaps next time when there is a bigger group....
The sky was getting cloudy and it was time for us to make our way back to Penang town...
Time to call it a day..
Just too bad we could not taste the Balik Pulau famous laksa....
Well, guess have to wait for my next trip then....

  3. Balik Pulau looks so peaceful compared to the other side of the island...very nice scenery up the hill and perhaps fresher air too?

  5. I love everything about your trip, Claire! The mural is so good! And the elephants, pretty blue chairs, the pretty view and you with the wheels! This trip was perfect for a blog post!

  6. I think laksa have to wait until year end already. You go back next month or the following month, you will still be distracted by durians and more durians XD

  7. So much changes at Balik Pulau. I have not visited this place for many years now.

    The bullock cart wheels are unique to be there as they looked irrelevant. I don't recall the history showing any bullock carts in that area with so many slopes. The cows would freak out. LOL

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

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... 

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
