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.

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....

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...
