My Food Adventure In Penang

MISSING IN ACTION AGAIN?

Yeah, from my blog, that is... It has been a number of days since my last post.  Where was I?  What have I been doing all these while.... why am I so lazy when it comes to blogging now?  For all I know, I have been going here and there despite the virus-mania thingy.  Someone spread me some virus, I have been coughing out lots of endless phlegm, whitish in color, not greenish... urghhhh.. and I have been to the doctor who prescribed me a bout of antibiotics to clear my throat.. three types of cough mixture I had been consuming and what else.... hmmm.... oh, no fever... Thank God for that...

No, I did not go around spreading my germs, in fact I have been cooking a lot at home, porridge and stuff.. that was why no foodie posts.  And NOW... I AM BACK!  Back to my old self and going up north, eating whatever my heart desires, it is like paying back time!  My weighing scale just informed me that I have gained 2kg already!  Serious!  Anyway.... no regrets la.... It is good to be back in my eating form after astaining for so long!

Food that I took in Penang for the past few days....

From Habee's Kitchen, Nagore Road.... 
Something appetizing....
Fish slices in tomato broth...
I like the bitter gourd soup too....
Around RM14 per bowl... 
With "fu pei" RM8
I like economy noodles too....
This is taken in Tye Sin Street....
The taste of the noodles reminded me of my childhood days...
This meal set gives me full satisfaction!
Springroll and Lobak to go with the noodles....
Famous wanton noodles at Chulia Street.... 
Fragrance from the Lard!
Hawker vendor selling Yong Tau Foo.... 
 I yearned for it the next day but unfortunately it was not opened....
Followed by 5 pieces of Apom by an elderly lady just opposite the Wanton noodles.... 
One piece 50 sen....
Ended the meal with a bowl of cooling Ching Poh Leong at Kimberley Street.....
Next night we had Mala Hotpot at Xiang Guo Burma Road.... 
Oh, by the way, this does not belong to us..
The waiter took it away after realizing his mistake...
This is ours... not a nice sight, right?
Taste wise... ok ok but a bit pricey.. RM38 with one bowl of rice and drinks...
And this was taken at Moh Teng Pheow Nyonya Koay at Jalan Masjid....
I was super full that time... so I just ordered a plate of Ju Hu Char RM13

And a few Koays to go with my hot lemon honey.... 
How not to gain weight?
I have to justify the food with long walks in the evenings...
 Botanical Gardens, Bukit Dumbar and Ayer Itam Dam...
LOL...

  4. Good that you just stayed at home when you are not well until you have recovered to prevent spreading it to other people and to ensure you have ample time and rests. Tasty food! Sure gain weight if eat like that.

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...
