Nyonya Food In Penang

ONE DAY TRIP to the Pearl of the Orient.... 

The drive only took less than two hours from Ipoh to Penang, so it is not surprising that we took a day off to visit this island for food!

Yes, it was food all the way, from breakfast till late afternoon, we took three meals and for dinner, we could only packet the food home... we just couldn't stomach any more, not like our younger days anymore... LOL....

After our breakfast which consisted of Koay Teow Thng at 113, Lebuh Melayu, we took a walk along the  esplanade.  To our delight, the cruise ship was docked along the esplanade... I miss the cruise I had with the Royal Caribbean in 2019, I would love to go on a cruise again... and of course, with the right group of people.  That would be so much fun.... 
When will I see you again.... 
Love this picture cos of the birdie flying across at the right moment... 
In front of the Penang Town Hall....

After our walk, lunch was at Baba Phang.... 
Curry stingray.... 
I like this dish... 
Kerabu styled with kacang botol.... 
Sweet, sourish and spicy....
Lobak.... 
Inchikabin... Fried Chicken.... 
Ju Hu Char... Fried Jicama...

Nasi Ulam....
Rice with mixed raw vegetables and spices... 
Otak Otak... 
Lunch for the four of us...
Total came to around RM150...
This is the third time eating at Baba Phang...
I guess it is time to try other Nyonya restaurants the next time round...

  3. I loved the Koay Teow Thng at a dark and murky coffee shop near Cititel at Penang Road. 2009, they charged 40 sen per head if you did not order any drinks. Tried one expensive nyonya place in Penang , so disappointing. Same in Melaka - the old place that I loved so much a long time ago is not nice anymore, lots of Singaporeans there. So far, I loved the one at Amcorp Mall in KL/PJ - very nice!

    Btw, best avoided, all cruises. My cousin and her hubby in Australia went on one to Japan and COVID broke out on board and they were confined to the ship for a month.. Such a scary experience!!!

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
