Dinner At Fisherman Wharf, Penang

ANOTHER FOOD HUB TO VISIT ... for tourists and locals alike...

Yes, Penang has lots of hawker food to offer, it has been ongoing for many decades, even at road sides, unlike Ipoh, most of the hawker stalls are either in food courts or many have "wrapped up" for the day.  The new generation has turned to cafes with a more comfortable and cooling ambience.  

Coming back to my post, the place I took my dinner recently was at the Fisherman's Wharf, near the Karpal Singh esplanade.  Parking is easily accessible and this is one of the largest food courts in town.  More than 40 stalls, the food consists of Penang's most liked, that is... white curry mee, Hokkien mee, Koay Teow Th'ng, Lor Bak, Hokkien Char... too many to name.  Besides the local food, they also served international food such as Arabian food (I saw many ordering from this stall), Thai food, Pizza, Japanese and Korean.  Prices are not overwhelming.... good to go for a meal in the evening, facing the sea and feeling the breeze... LOL... 

I couldn't get a place facing the sea unfortunately....
So I was seated right on this Carlsberg table...
I like Hokkien char...
A combination of koay teow (flat noodles) and meehoon mixed...
Quite a big portion, it cost RM9...
The Pasembur looks so good...
Thick gravy flooding over the crispy fritters...
We can choose what we like... not the standard type...
As usual, our food needs to be shared among us two...
And that was all we could eat for the night...


  1. Miss the pasembur. We can't get that here. Our rojak tambi isn't quite the same.

  2. How come your Penang Hokkien char doesn't have black sauce? What you had looks more like our Cantonese yin yong. P/S: Most cafes will never be able to turn out hawker food as tasty as the old-school hawker/roadside stalls (the young don't know what they're

    1. Don't go cafes then. Just eat at roadside stalls forever and ever.

    2. The pasembur gravy, is it more to sweet or more to spicy?

  3. eh, that is Hokkien char? i have similar thought with contact.ewew, coz i thought it looks more like cantonese style yinyong.

    1. Hokkien char or char hor fun is actually a combination of mihon and koay teow... in other states, it is known as yin yong... Hokkien char in other states is the big noodles (tai look mee)... hahaha... different states different interpretion.

  4. Read of this Fisherman's Wharf. Would definitely want to visit Penang again.

  5. In Penang we are surely spoilt for choice. Definitely will put in weight if I spend time in Penang. LOL!

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

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

The Good, The Bad But Not Ugly

MISSING AND NOW BACK IN ACTION...  I checked back my last post and it was 8 March last month and today is 19 April, less than two months only.  So what has been happening in my life?  Lots and lots... good news, bad news, sad news... all concerning health and I guess this is our life cycle as we live day by day.   My health is also not that "fantastic" during the past few months, but mine is a small rock compared to giant boulder which my best buddy is undergoing... I guess some of you know what is happening to her from her blog posts.  I was totally devastated when this happened to her, my tears couldn't help falling and my heart goes out to her.  I am ashamed to say that instead of me giving the comfort that she needs, I am the one that have been receiving her strength in times like this.  She might be crushed physically but she is not broken in her spiritual mind and soul.  One word... "Unbreakable!"  She is a shining example..... "What can death do to m
