Assam Laksa And Lemak Laksa At My Own Cafe, Penang

FOODIE TIME.... Since it was a day trip, we wanted to try more food by sharing out our portions.  If each of us take a full bowl each, then we would not be able to try other varieties... LOL... now at our senior age, I guess our tummies have shrunk a bit.  I get full very easily but if I do more walking after eating, then I can be able to tuck in more.  That was what we did after we had our breakfast along Perak Road.... 
We ordered three bowls of their Classic Hokkien noodles special.... added ingredients...
One bowl is missing cos we could not sit together as 4 persons due to SOP... 
Anyway, we shared out the noodles for breakfast.... 
Then we drove to Lebuh Cannon... 
Even though it was a Sunday, there was no crowd...
I guess people are still skeptical going around places...
First time I see Penang in her quiet state... 
We walked around the area...
That was where I bought my doggie stuff.... 
We stopped here for our break... 
My Own Cafe...
This is the owner... who mentioned that he paid RM2K to have his picture painted in the shop..
We were their first customers... I guess...
We had the whole shop to ourselves.... 
This is really the best time to visit Penang on a weekend... 
Now no crowd, no queue, easy parking... 
We ordered one bowl of Assam Laksa.... 
And a bowl of Lemak Laksa... 
Both were equally good even though they taste differently.... 
I have bookmarked this shop for future laksa-ing... LOL... 
And two glasses of mixed fruit juice plus 6 springrolls which I have forgotten to take picture!
Oh no, I cannot call myself a food blogger now... LOL...
After our Laksa tasting, we dropped by at the Kuih Culture
along Kimberley Street for some desserts... 
I did not take pictures in this place at all... 
Confirmed... cannot say I am food blogger liow!

  1. Oh, thanks for recommending this place. I must bookmark it too. Are the laksa prices higher than the air itam stalls? If yes, maybe that is the reason, you all are the first customers there.

  2. All good! Penang Hokkien mee, no prawns? I remember last time there were one or two, at least. Also called Penang har mee.

  4. I bet most places are not crowded now, and it would be fast to get a table.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
