Happy Lunar Year 2013

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 ! :D

We also skyped with my sister whose living in NZ .

 

Of course, little Neville visited us at grandma’s place a few times . Ain’t he just adorable ?
   

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 .

@Penang Village, Great Eastern Mall

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.

Chinese New Year 2010, Part 2

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.

P1080914

P1080918

P1080959

Blue lights, turquoise chairs and tables and lovely ‘lighted paintings’ on the wall.

P1080960

The long ‘river’ in the middle of the restaurants is still due to constructions though.

P1080961

The actual place is much darker.. I brighten it up so you could see whats there.

P1090003

The outdoor dining area. So spacious!

P1080932

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..

P1080935

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?

P1080936

P1080945

Salt and Pepper Calamari (RM21)
Red Chilli, Coriander, Onion Jam and Nahm jim

P1080950

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!

P1080954

Prawns (RM28)
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!

P1080957

P1080962

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. :D

P1080963

P1080966

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.

P1080989

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.

P1080977

P1080981

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! :D

P1080982

P1080984

Fungi (RM27 for 12″)
Mushrooms, anchovies, olives, and dried oregano
Mushrooms are nice. :D Do you like mushrooms? I love mushrooms.. This pizza is just awesome!

P1080985

P1080987

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..

P1080988

P1090009

P1090018

The Bombe (RM23)
Mango sorbet, white chocolate parfait, Italian meringue, and pine nuts
It seemed to be a weird combination, but a good one.

P1090023

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.

P1090021

Meet the chef himself, John Brock.

P1090013

Family time! :D My Aunt, Uncle and mum.

P1090035

Say hello to baby Neville! He’s about 8 months old now.

P1090036

The sun rays here are so.. SO bright!

P1090038

Night falls and we had our reunion dinner. We had steamboat as usual! No pictures, I wanted to enjoy the food…. :D 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. ):

Chinese New Year 2010, Part 1

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!

Wednesday

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.
