Yay, It’s CNY again ! The time where my family goes back to Penang, my mum’s hometown and visit my grandma and relatives.
I had my favourite kuey chap in Air Itam Market ! This will keep me contented for a year , till the next CNY.
Yap Temple stone carvings .
So gorgeous I tell you ..
Oh we sold a lot of good books at Chowrasta Market .. For Bloody RM35 . Feel so cheated but we wanted to get rid of the books badly.
Steamboat on the eve of CNY !
We also skyped with my sister whose living in NZ .
Every year I go back to Penang and take his annual pictures . -.- Such a habit for me now .
Meet my couin Nicholas
And the lovely Vanessa, my other cousin .
When we walked in, I didn’t believe it was Penang Village. White and black interior decor. Including chairs and tables and their plates! Urban atmosphere while having great Penang food. Overall, I really like the food there. It’s Penang food for KL people. (:
No time for extra explanation though, tomorrow I have a 10 hour BM seminar! Rawr.
I like their floor. SO CUTE.
So neat, don’t you think? (:
The restaurant is really really huge! You can fit about 200 pax!
Lots of malay like it here too, expecially the dim sum. It’s halal! (:
They gave us flower tea. Have you guys tried it? (: The flowers really look pretty! I had a sip of the rose buds flower tea. Gorgeous!

At night, we had western food! Which is ALSO not normal to eat in Penang, for me. We went to Sigi’s Bar and Grill on The Beach at Golden Sands Resort. Currently, it’s only open to in house guests, and the launch is on the 18th of February! This particular restaurant is quite big, it has an outdoor and indoor dining areas. Besides that, they have a cool bar that is lit up with blue lights at night! Actually, the whole restaurant is based on blue colour. The place is a little dark which sort of gives this mysterious and romantic ambiance. On the opposite end of the entrance leads you outside to the beach which you can enjoy the beautiful sunsets and enjoy the sea breeze. Outside the entrance has a trail with herbs and flowers at the sides. Overall, this place is such an adventure.
Blue lights, turquoise chairs and tables and lovely ‘lighted paintings’ on the wall.
The long ‘river’ in the middle of the restaurants is still due to constructions though.
The actual place is much darker.. I brighten it up so you could see whats there.
The outdoor dining area. So spacious!
Eastern Sunrise Mocktail
Fresh Guava, Pineapple, Lime, Banana, Mango and Grenadine Syrup
My favourite. It’s slightly sour because of the grenadine. But surprisingly, I didn’t taste any pineapple and banana..
Caesar Salad (RM28)
Crispy Romaine Lettuce, toasted croutons, beef bacon, anchovies, shaved parmesan, and soft poached egg with caesar dressing.
Lovely poached egg, oooh! The parmesan that melts in your mouth and beef bacons. Am I making you drool?
Salt and Pepper Calamari (RM21)
Red Chilli, Coriander, Onion Jam and Nahm jim
Seared Scallops (RM30)
Scallops with green olive tapenade, chive creme, and potato galette
The. Scallops. Are. So. Fresh. And. So. Juicy.. I only had half.. and I want more! It’s just so lovely!
Marinated in Morrocan Spices, dipping sauce
Eat it without shelling the prawns! It taste so beautiful.. If you shell them, you don’t get to taste the spices anymore. Trust me on this!
Pan-fried Cod (RM65)
With crushed new potatoes, pistachio aioli, and fennel and caper salad
I always loved cod fish.. Juicy fresh cod fish.. Yum.
Braised Oxtail Fettuccine, Parmesan, Broccoli and Basil (RM34 for individual, RM112 for family)
For me, I’d preffer my spaghetti softer.. The oxtail is full of fats. Eek! Not my kind of meal.
Beef Sirloin (RM70)
Char-grilled Australian black angus sirloin steak with hand-cut chips. cafe de paris butter and salad
Don’t order a well done steak.. Order medium or rare. It really makes a difference. Juicer and more tender. Every mouth made me want another piece. It’s that good. RM70 worth of paradise.
Fried Dried Flat Rice Noodle (RM31)
They have a few local items as well like this one! Of course, they are fine dining local food!
Fungi (RM27 for 12″)
Mushrooms, anchovies, olives, and dried oregano
Mushrooms are nice. Do you like mushrooms? I love mushrooms.. This pizza is just awesome!
Souvlaki (RM29 for 12″)
Shredded lamb, onion, sweet chilli sauce, tomato tabouleh and garlic sauce
The weird part is that they added chilli sauce to make it a little Arabian-ish. Not working for me.. It reminds me of the Ramli burgers..
The Bombe (RM23)
Mango sorbet, white chocolate parfait, Italian meringue, and pine nuts
It seemed to be a weird combination, but a good one.
Chocolate Tarte (RM25)
Like chewing gum tart! Okay, not literally, but its quite chewy, but not too much that makes you tired of eating it. To balance it off, they added a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Meet the chef himself, John Brock.
Family time! My Aunt, Uncle and mum.
Say hello to baby Neville! He’s about 8 months old now.
Usually we would visit and pray to my grandpa in the morning before lunch.. This time we went in the afternoon.
The sun rays here are so.. SO bright!
Night falls and we had our reunion dinner. We had steamboat as usual! No pictures, I wanted to enjoy the food…. But I did take pretty pictures of the fireworks we played. We also accidentally lit up an unknown firework and we didn’t stand far away enough nor did we covered our ears.. The cylinder-shaped firework bombed with such a loud sound, our ears were still ringing 2 hours later. ):
Hey guys, I’ve been neglecting my blog due to Chinese New Year. I didn’t wanna blog uncomfortably so I waited till I got back from Penang. (: How are you guys? I hope you guys still read my blog!
We left the house at about 3pm and reached at 7-8pm-ish. After packing and smelling Penang’s hot air for a couple of minutes, we left house to shop at Gurney Plaza and have supper. I had my worst kuay tiao soup. Ever. It tasted like the instant noodles. OMG. What a bad way to start my CNY holiday. Even my brother had a bad char hor fun.
On the bridge to Penang Island.
Protecting it’s siblings from humans. So sweet.
HAHA. I am not in school! Waahahhahahaha. I woke up at 9am and you guys had to wake up at 6! Muahahaha. We went to Air Itam to have our breakfast and walk around. We had our favouriteduck kuay chap. Yum. After breakfast we walked down the road while looking at the pretty things people were selling. Oh my, I love the preparations of Chinese New Year! But I hate the weather there. ):
Duck Kuay Chap
For lunch, we had indian food at Passions of Kerala. It’s not normal to eat indian food in Penang for me.. Seriously.
Vegetarian Set on Banana Leaf (RM5.50)
2 choices of rice, tomato rice/white rice. Vegetable dishes change daily. It’s like eating rice with only vegetables. I could live with this as it is actually quite yummy.
Deep Fried Ladyfingers (Small: RM3.50, Medium: RM6, Large: RM9)
Deep Fried Bitter Gourd (Small: RM3.50, Medium: RM6, Large: RM9)
Best of the deep fried tidbits.
Fried Sotong (Small: RM6, Medium: RM12, Large: RM18)
Not as great as the bitter gourd
Fried Fish (Bawal/Kembung/Pari) (RM4 a piece)
Quite ordinary to me, except that they give you a lime to squeeze on it first. ( I think it’s just me.)
Chicken Masala (Small: RM5, Medium: RM10, Large: RM15)
Crab Rasan (Medium: RM22)
The Restaurant Manager. Like model, right?
Outside Passions of Kerala had a few interesting wood carvings. I really really wonder how they could carve them.
Hello aliens from planet Earth!! How was school on Saturday? I didn’t go. HAHA. Lalala. I went to Penang instead.
Meet Neville Yeoh. The newcomer in our family
His mum – Jovin
Went to Air Itam to eat kuay chap for breakfast. Whee. Then had gelato. GELATO in the morning. Haha. So weird.
I find this interesting.. I want to try it one day.
Wanna play football? On a cake. Haha
Went home.. And found my grandma arranging old photos. Wahh.
So cool right? We seldom see these in KL. Except modern ones.
Famous oh chien. It’s on fire!
In the evening, we went to Penang Times Square. Which was.. So dead. Why? It’s not really opened yet.. /:
My family likes this man’s mee goreng.
Went we reached home, it was already 5.30pm.
My mother actually laughed out SO LOUD when she saw this. So bad! I looked cute okay. Haha.
Me and my uncle
These are my cousinsm Nicholas and Vanesa!
My grandma’s birthday cake. So cool right? Fuiyohhhh..
Lotus paste inside taste like kaya.. But it’s nice.
LOBSTER. Rawwrrrr! So huge.
Omg. I forgot what this tasted like.
Fish with banana filling.
My mother says its the only champagne James Bond drinks.
This was where we were for the dinner.
Black chicken herbal soup. Yum..
Okay.. The piggy’s eyes scared me. Say hello!
Mushroom, scallop and broccoli.
Pecking duck skin wrapped in egg.
Neville so cute and tiny.
Birthday mee. Its actually tasty.
I also get to feed little Neville! Whee..
Everyone of us except my sister.. /:
