One Day Foodie Trip To Penang

WEEKDAY GETAWAY...  It was last week on a Tuesday when we drove one and a half hours to Penang for a day trip.  We did not stay a night this time, just a few hours in fact, as the Malay saying goes:  Jalan-Jalan Cari Makan.  

If we did not go last week, I guess we would not be able to go from now on till don't-know-when since the cases of Covid has increased drastically for the past few days.  On the positive side, at least now we know where the cluster comes from unlike six months ago.  Anyway, advisable to take precaution again for us all.

Upon reaching Penang, our stomach were crying for food and our first stop is the food court right behind Royal Hotel.  One of the stalls there is famous for Hokkien Prawn Noodles.  The other time we did not manage to eat cos it was sold out.  This time we enjoyed savouring the noodles till the last bit.

Tasty broth with prawns... 
Yummy in our tummy.... first meal of the day... 
After that, we walked round a bit and 
bought some fresh-from-the-oven buns from
Continental Bakery around the corner... 
Second stop... 
Stopped by a shop called Seng Thor Lebuh Carnavon for fried oysters... 
Third stop... Sin Hwa Laksa at Pulau Tikus
Two bowls of Laksa to share...
And two plates of Char Koay Teow.... 
Phew... by then, our tummies could not hold anymore... 
The rest of the time, we bought foodstuff... 
Reached Ipoh in the evening...
And I had a mug of oats for dinner...
Rest my stomach and "detoxify"....
LOL...

  5. Be a good girl, stay at home. Best not to venture anywhere out of the house - looks like it is getting worse. I sure am getting worried as they still will not close down the schools. The risk is always looming over our heads! :(

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
