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!

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

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... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

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.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
