A Stroll At Straits Quay, Penang

THE LAST TIME I CAME TO STRAITS QUAY, it was booming with people...
When I went there on Sunday evening, it was quite quiet and peaceful.  Maybe I went there a bit too early, most of them might be having dinner somewhere else.  Delicious restaurant is no more there, I remember when I came here few years ago, there was a queue going to this restaurant.  We had to wait to be seated... I love their cakes there...

We spent half an hour there this time... just to walk around before we proceeded for our wedding dinner at Hollywood restaurant as mentioned in my previous post.

I noticed a few yachts for sale.... 
I wonder how much one cost...

  1. I was wondering what this small tower is...so it's a visitor center. My favorite picture today is the third. I love all your boat pictures, but especially seeing into the boats from the back. The blue one is so pretty. I bet we never would have enough money in our whole life to buy a yacht!

  5. Thanks for loving my hometown always and your frequent visits certainly boosted their economy higher. My gang of school mates dined in KL last week and all chose to return & retire in Penang Island. I think that tiny yachts are less than RM20K averagely for 2nd hands. Those bigger ones with 6 seaters above could exceed RM100K! Buy one lah Claire and we can partay with beers & bikini. Hoo-la-la!

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

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

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
