Market And Street Food In Penang Island

FROM SOUTH TO NORTH....

I mean, back to Ipoh first... and then after resting and rejuvenating for a week or so, I went up north with my friend.  After shedding off some body fats in Ipoh, we adjourned to Penang, it is like my second or third home, going in and out of the island few times in a year.  What attracted me to go so often?  Needs no answer to that... LOL...  A retiree with strong cravings of food, I go whenever there is an opportunity, many thanks to my friends who share the same interest with me!  LOL..
From Ipoh to Penang, it is not a problem on the roads... 
Toll to toll takes less than 2 hours... 
Just have to sing one whole CD of songs, we can see the Penang second link.... 
Not many people takes this bridge... maybe it is out of the way for many... 
Or perhaps it cost slightly more to take this second bridge which is much longer than the first.. 
Easier for us to move about from the second bridge.. 
Our first destination... 
Jelutong market where food is served almost throughout the day.. 
Nasi Kerabu served in the market.. 
Only locals go there... good, simple and yet tasty food!
Their Nyonya kueh is something to shout about too!
Local coffee served in the market...
Cheap and yet fragrant... Best!
For this simple meal, it cost less than RM10..
Night time, we went to Perak Road where the authentic fried noodles are.... 
They put lots of ingredients... chunks of meat which I really avoid actually.. LOL.. 
I prefer this style... the wet version without egg... 
Complete the day's meal with Magnum customized ice cream in Paragon... RM9.90
One can choose three types of toppings... 
Yes, I made the wrong choice... 
Next time no gojiberries please... too dry and hard for my poor teeth!

  1. Looks like Ipoh is a good town to retire in. 2 hours to Penang and also 2 hours to KL. 2nd bridge is the new bridge or old bridge? I thought the old bridge is nearer to KomTar. Food looks good as usual.

  3. I have not been to Penang since my girl completed her studies some 6 years or so ago. Maybe I should make a trip there sometime soon.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
