Getaway To Penang Master Keong Restaurant

UP NORTH....

Don't waste time, my sister said.... And after a few days of settling down in Ipoh, we packed our bags for a two nights stay up north, our favourite state, Penang!  Driving there is not a problem for me, short journey of less than two hours, it feels good to be behind the wheels after so long. :)

We stayed in Cititel Express, good location, cheap and clean costing around RM150 per night.  Three of us squeezed in the small room and the only place to sit is on the bed.  Well, we did not mind a bit, after all, we were out almost the whole day and we  like squeezing cos someone is afraid of the dark!  LOL...

Daytime spent eating lots of food from different places, so much so that I did not take pictures.... and we had our first dinner at a new restaurant called Master Keong.
We went there around 7pm and the place was not crowded at all...
Maybe it was a weekday... 
That is how I remember the name of this restaurant...
We ordered soup to replenish our stamina... 
Wintermelon soup... 
Claypot curry fish head which is quite costly.. around RM80... 
Spinach in egg gravy which is a bit too thick...
Venison meat which is a bit too tough for me... 
Maybe due to weak teeth.. poor old me!
And a plate of meehoon fried with braised pork...
Four dishes which cost around RM160 over... 
I guess it is a bit overpriced...
Well, at least we tried.... and now we know...

  2. it is so fun to be able to drive to Penang whenever you feel like it since it is only 2 hours away. Ok, need to avoid this restaurant because it is costly.

  6. Really no time wasted. You sisters are so adventurous. I wonder when me and my sister would have such holiday. Maybe when our kids all grown up and able to fend themselves, without mummy around. Lol.

    I wish to visit Penang again. Been more than 20 years since my last (very 1st) trip there.

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... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
