Food Galore In Penang Island

FROM JOHOR BOTH OF US FLEW UP NORTH.. to the Pearl of the Orient, Penang!

Penang has been in the limelight recently... for the first time in history, heavy rain had caused a massive flood in the island and in the mainland as well.  It has caused a big concern to all Malaysians and on the positive side, the phenomenon has brought the people together, united to help one another regardless of race. 

For both Aaron and I, we have a lot to be thankful for.... firstly, we were not affected by the flood, we were there a week before it happened.   Our plane schedule went on smoothly, the weather was fabulous and we spent our three days' stay filling our tummies with what we-see, we-eat food marathon...
We stayed at Cititel Express Hotel right in the middle of the town... 
Nearby to the shopping malls and accessible food places... 
Weather was hot and hotter each day... 
Some of the food which we took during our stay... 
More to these but somehow, the pictures were not in our camera... 
Reason for the "lost pics" must be due to our "fast food attack!"
Food for Two at Pulau Tikus...
Prawn noodles, Duck meat noodles, Laksa and Fried Koay Teow for dinner...
Thumbs Up for Penang!

  1. Lucky you! Cititel Express? Is that the same as the one at Penang Road, across the road from Red Garden Hawker Centre? We went there after our karaoke session with Eugene and the rest, remember? Miss the food so much! I hear Pulau Tikus is good too but I've never been.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
