New Year Eve 2016 In Penang

STARTED OUR JOURNEY UP NORTH AROUND 9.30AM, reaching Penang Island around 11.30am, just nice to have lunch.  Traffic was quite smooth though drizzling most of the way, nevertheless the weather didn't dampen our spirits especially for my girl.  She loves Penang more after spending eight months of internship working in Bayan Lepas.  Since it was New Year Eve, hotels were a bit more pricey than normal days but then, this is the first time we are spending our New Year Eve here, so it does not matter... so much... LOL... 

Upon reaching, we went to Cecil Street Market for our favourite Koay Teow Th'ng fix.  After our lunch we checked in and wasting no time, we made our way to Queensbay, her favourite spot for shopping ... er.. window shopping.  From Queensbay, we proceeded to Gurney... see how "active" we are when it comes to shopping?  LOL... But then we did not spend much, just feasting our eyes on the shopping deco and the red dresses in almost every shop outlets.
Traffic was pretty smooth going in to Penang unlike the other side... 
Our favourite stall at Cecil Market... 
Duck meat in Koay Teow soup...
Pasembur is not to be missed out ... 
Couldn't resist this either.. the sticky rice was very soft and nice... 
Checking in to Royal Hotel after our lunch...
Scenery from the 18th Floor... 
Greetings from the hotel lobby... 
Wasting no time, we adjourned to Queensbay.... 
The "Cockerels" are ready!
Let's go... Window Shopping!
Oh oh... We could not resist the Baskin Robbins 31% offer!
Good excuse to rest our tired legs!

  5. Penang has always held a special spot in my heart. Also love the food, especially koay teow th'ng. We like the one sold at Chulia Street at night. What a coincidence! The last 2 times we were at Penang, we stayed at Royal Hotel too. Quite an ideal location.

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...
