Again right after the 'chendol', we went searching for food again!!! This time we went looking for one of the famous Penang curry mee... The stall is very easy to find... It is located along 'Weld Quay' main road...


'Tua Pui's' curry looks more reddish compare to others... Frankly speaking, the curry mee is only so-so... Not much flavour in it... I've eaten much nicer 'Penang curry mee' in Selangor... So will I return for more next time round??? I'm afraid the answer is a BIG no...




Overall Rating - 3/5

Right after the 'Lorong Selamat Char Koay Teow', we went searching for the famous 'Penang Road Teochew Chendol'... Once there we were greeted by hordes of people lining besides the road side waiting for their 'chendol'...

A word of caution because there were two 'chendol' stalls there... But fret not... You won't miss the famous one because there were a lot of people while the other stall was not really packed...


The 'chendol's' really good!!! One of the best actually... No wonder it was so famous... The only gripe that I had was the lack of shaved ice... If they put in more, then it would be perfect!!! RM1.80 for a bowl...

Finally I had the opportunity to try out the very famous 'char koay teow' from 'Lorong Selamat'... The shop was packed to the brim which was not really surprising... If the shop was deserted then I guessed it would be more surprising to me...

We waited for around half an hour for our 'char koay teow'... I opted the most expensive one which I though would be a bit more special compared to the others but I'm so wrong... The only difference was there were 2 more prawns!!! But BIG one nevertheless...


RM9.00 for this!!! Frankly speaking, I believed it was a bit overpriced...


BIG succulent prawns...


RM6.50, RM7.00 and finally RM9.00!!!


This was the famous auntie in the red cap which was also famous for being arrogant, grumpy and hot tempered!!!


Looked at all the prawns...


I find this 'char koay teow' much nicer than those in KL... I'm really enjoying it... But I definitely won't order the most expensive one next time round... RM7.00 is more than enough for me as I don't really fancy prawns... Highly recommended and it is a MUST eat food when you're in Penang!!!

We purposely drove all the way to Batu Ferringhi just to see the new 'Hard Rock Hotel'... We were really unlucky because it was raining very heavily that day... So only indoor pictures were available while exterior picture was a mission impossible on that day!!!













The hotel was really packed that day and I guessed it was because of public holiday... I'm not so sure about weekdays though... Actually the hotel looks a bit small but it sure looks nice... Hopefully my next trip to Penang will see me staying at 'Hard Rock Hotel'... I don't mind if it is just one night!!! At least better than nothing... :)

If my memory served me right, I watched the original 'Karate Kid' which debuted in year 1984 before... I've notice a lot of people likes to remake classics movie nowadays... But fortunately, 'The Karate Kid' lives up to the hype in my opinion unlike 'Nightmare on Elm Street'...

First thing first, this movie is really hilarious and 'Jaden Smith' is really good... Actually I won't doubt about his ability when you know who his parents are!!! As for the storyline it is straight to the point... If this movie is film without all the humour, then I guess it won't be this good... In my opinion, the funny stuff really works here... Throw in some friendship and love and you got a real winner here...

Highly recommended!!!

If you ask any Malaysian what beverage is famous in Ipoh and chances of them saying 'white coffee' is really high... Indeed Ipoh is really famous for their 'white coffee'... So what is so special about 'white coffee'??? From what I know, the difference is the way they prepare the coffee beans... 'White coffee' is roasted in pure margarine while the normal coffee is roasted in a combinations of other ingredients... For those who likes coffee I'm very sure you will notice the difference between 'white coffee' and the normal one serve in coffee shops... I'm not a coffee drinker so I can't comment much on this...

From what I know, this particular restaurant was really famous for its 'white coffee' (forget about Old Town!!!)... In fact it was one of the pioneer in serving 'white coffee'... The restaurant was really packed when we reached there... Once my darling took a sip, she's in haven... Really nice according to her... I took a sip as well and I must admit it was good... But I still preferred my 'teh ice'!!! :)


My 'teh ice' or 'ice tea'... Very nice as well...



We saw a lot of peoples buying egg tarts and according to some of my friends, they said that the egg tart was famous as well... So we bought 2 to try it out...

I'm really shocked actually... The egg tarts was really bad!!! If you ask me, it was the worse that I had ever tasted... Really disappointed with it...




Overall Rating - 4/5 for the drinks & 1.5/5 for the egg tart

Normally I don't prefer to post hotel serve breakfast unless the food is good... I'm really proud to present one of the BEST breakfast I had in Korea!!! I'm very sorry because I cannot recall the name of the hotel but what I know is that the food and room is one of the best during my whole Korea trip...


Heavenly don't you think...


I notice something during my trip to Korea... Korean likes to eat sausages and I'm loving it too!!!


Omelette cook to perfection...


The good news is we are staying in this hotel for 2 days... Yay!!! But unfortunately, we are only entitle to have breakfast in the hotel for 1 day only... Curse the tour guide for not telling us earlier... I didn't manage to try out all the dishes because I'm leaving some for the next day!!! Too bad...

Before leaving the hotel, something interesting caught my eyes... I took a picture of it and my darling said I'm really disgusting for going closeup!!!


Hmm what was it actually???

Last 2 weeks, both me and my darling went to Penang in order to attend her college mate's wedding... So we took this opportunity to drop by Ipoh for some 'dim sum'... There were 2 famous 'dim sum' shop in Ipoh... One was really BIG and extravagance while the other was somehow the opposite... Small and traditional...

So in the end, we went to the small and traditional one... 'Ming Court Hong Kong Tim Sum Sdn Bhd'... Any reason for this??? The main reason was because 'Ah Xian' recommended this restaurant so off we go...







Something different here... This is not the usual 'dim sum' chilli that we are so use to...




The 'carrot cake' is really nice...


'Siu mai'... I'm really shock to see it because it is really really tiny...












Recommended by 'Ah Xian'...


Frankly speaking, I'm not really amaze by the quality of food serve here... All the portion are really really small!!! The smallest I've ever seen in fact... Taste wise, really nothing to shout about... Above average but definitely not the best... In my opinion, I think this restaurant is over-hype but the restaurant is pack to the brim and that's what puzzling me... I guess different people got different taste... At least the price is acceptable!!!
