Dinner On Top Of Tree Monkey, Teluk Bahang

ONE OF THE LATEST FOOD ATTRACTIONS THAT LURED ME TO PENANG IS THE TREE MONKEY at Tropical Spice Garden, Teluk Bahang.  Just recently opened, I was told, this Northeastern Thai, Asian and Western cuisines mixed and it is kind of special because it is nestled on a high wooden platform, overlooking panoramic views of the Andaman Sea... In a way, the ambiance is really romantic, facing the sunset while dining....

We parked along the main road, one has to be careful... and ascended up a slope leading to the Tree Monkey, it is like dining in a tree house which reminded me of those Enid Blyton's books... LOL.. We were there quite early, around 6pm and the sun was above the sea level... Tip: Do not go too early for dinner.  Initially the hot sun was glaring into our eyes and I have to end up wearing my sunglasses even when I was eating! But after awhile, when the sun was setting, the discomfort was forgotten... the cool breeze in the later evening produces a very romantic ambiance...

Affectionately called Ah Lai... 
Dusky Leaf Monkey but I didn't see him that evening..

On one side...
Where shall we sit to avoid the sun?
Must find a perfect spot to avoid the sun... 
When will the sun go down?
How about this table?  No, a bit too hot.. 
The food served... 
And the bill and address... 
Towards the sun set....
Lights were on... 
Our sunset dinner for the evening... 
Tip of the day:  Go when the sun has set... 
The food will definitely taste better.. 
LOL..

  4. Your last two pictures are gorgeous! And I see your shadow snapping in the first photo! All the food looks awesome!! There looks to be some kind of rice in such a pretty shape. I know it must be great because it is up so high and you have to walk. It is also hidden. But when you find it, it is a gem. So they have this mascot monkey?

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... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

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
