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.

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...
