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.

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
