Previously, August was the month for Malaysian cuisine in Eastin Hotel Penang in conjunction with Malaysia’s Independent Day which falls on 31-August. This year, the hotel has something different by offering cuisines from neighbor country – Indonesia.
It is raining session recently and it is good to enjoy some warm soups for dinner – such as Tom Yam soup. Cherry Blossom used to be a famous Thai restaurant in town which operated more than 10 years ago. Is the Sungai Ara branch as good as before?
Another laksa stall I frequently visited in Balik Pulau is the one at Jalan Bahru, or better known as Laksa and Hokkien Mee house since they are selling both items at their resident house during weekend at a reasonable price of RM2.80 each. Continue reading
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.
People came, people left. That’s working life. It is sad to see some good colleagues leaving. Good thing is, you can enjoy nice farewell lunch with them sometimes :evilsmile: I asked myself sometimes, “What is the purpose of having farewell meal? Enjoy the food or enjoy last moment with fellow colleague?”. Anyway, today I bring you to a Chinese restaurant in Sungai Ara, Penang, namely…. Sungai Ara Zhu Cha in which we celebrated a colleague’s farewell there.
How was your Hari Raya holiday? I spent the holiday sleeping at home until head also become flat. No nice food to try during holiday due to tight budget :poor: Anyway, two weeks ago we visited this restaurant – Weld Quay Restoran for a colleague’s farewell lunch, in which we found the price was quite reasonable.
