The Scenery At Copthorn Orchid And Queensbay Mall Activities

BOOKING AT THE LAST MINUTE... we were undecided which hotel to stay, all the rates have gone up since the last time we went.  My budget is below RM200 and through Agoda, we settled for Copthorn Orchid Hotel at Tanjung Bungah.  I made a mistake, I thought it was the hotel which my girl and I stayed last year, I quite liked that hotel, it is called Flamingo... and I mixed up with this Copthorn, I thought it was Flamingo... Blunder me..

Only when we reached the hotel, I realized it was not the same... no choice, already paid so have to stay... Compared to the two hotels, I still prefer the Flamingo, still couldn't understand why I made the mistake.  Blame it on jet lag... LOL... Anyway, the rates for Copthorn is RM164 per night excluding taxes and breakfast was not included... never mind, Penang has lots to offer from morning till night!
Seaside scenery from the swimming pool... not from my room, unfortunately...
There is a private beach here.... 
And a bungalow along the beach... just behind where I am standing....
As usual, we did what the ladies normally do...
Go to all the malls in Penang... 
And me... as a "vendor"
Raya Goodies!
With a beautiful Balinese lady... 
And that was what we did during this festive season....
No crowd so we managed to take as many pictures as we like... 
Ladies... hmmmm......

  7. The Balinese lady is a real person or wax figure? Her pose and expression are the same in your two photos.

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
