“Hello, my name is mantis prawn, and thanks to you all, we will be SLAUGHTER! Come on, we are Good Friends, right?”. This is their last photo taken alive, before they turned into Cheese Mantis Prawn by Good Friend Seafood Bayan Lepas.
You may already heard that Penang is one of the heritage cities in Asia. Personally I saw many pre-war buildings on the island but most of them were either abundant or damaged, but not this one – the newly renovated Yeng Keng Hotel – 燕京旅社.
After having dim sum at Foh San restaurant, we let our food digested by walking around. We went to Gunung Lang but it was spoiled by a government event there, in which whole place was blasted with rock music. We then went to Perak Cave 霹雳洞. It was an enjoyable place (I will post its pictures in Facebook later). After that, it was time for lunch so we decided for “Nga Choi Kai” (Bean sprouts chicken) this time.
As mentioned, June to August is Durian session. My colleagues and I are durian fan. We dared enough to travel to Balik Pulau just for durian lunch. The first trip was on 3-Jun-2010, in which we traveled to Balik Pulau Wet Market by two cars. There was a durian stall called 118 which was recommended by friend’s friend.
Area around Sunshine Square is a great place to work. There are many restaurants around. The only cuisines not available are “Choo Char” and dim sum. Last month, the first “problem” solved as Fisherman Wharf 东海渔村海鲜餐厅 initially opened at Bayan Lepas had opened a branch in Sunshine Square (the area where Nanyang computer shop previously opened). There was RM2 offer for certain dishes last month so we took that opportunity to pay it a visit.
I finished Lammeeya. It was still early to check in so I dated my friend at 1 Utama. (Before that I visited Thean Hou Temple to get some blessing for cheap labor like me. I never been there since primary school.) Compared to Queensbay Penang who some think it is everything they want in their life, 1 Utama is one big motherfxxxer. There are quite a number of restaurants in it and obviously we wanna try somethings not available in Penang. So we decided to go Plus One Shabu Shabu.
My friend’s wedding is at PJ so I booked a budget hotel nearby (already :poor: so can’t afford high class hotels). I reached PJ at 8:30am and I cannot check in until 1pm. At first, the hotel looked a bit scary (like for “open room” that kind). Surprisingly there are quite a number of convenient shops around…. including 7-11 (for you to buy rubbers), tires shop (in case your tires went missing), vegetarian shop (this looks good but I don’t have a chance to try), and this Lammeeya… which looks kind of familiar…
Last Saturday, I alone traveled all the way down to Kuala Lumpur to attend my friend’s wedding. It was an evening event but I started my journey from Penang at 4am, so that I could reach Ipoh at 6am to enjoy dim sum :evilsmile: Previous I had visited Foh San. Now it is time to visit the restaurant opposite of it – Ming Court.
