Jelutong Market (Night)

Koay Teow Soup (Jelutong Market night)
Opposite Leng Lui thong sui.

I rinsed my mouth with my teh peng, having high expectations for this koay teow soup.
With the 1st mouthful i knew, this is the best koay teow soup ive had in Penang.
The soup is thick & flavorful. The fishballs (got 4) were great. So is the minced meat and fish cakes.

What do women want?

What do women want? After all these years im still single. What is wrong with me? Is it me? Is it them? Is it something i do or didnt do? hmmm...

Well i admit i have been too shy to talk to women all the way till 2nd year of uni. Maybe i worship them a bit too much..tee hee. But ever since then it feels as if the women around me are those that are already taken. I mean my 1st love already had a bf. Sigh...we had some great, memorable moments. Has fate decided that i shall forever be surrounded by women that belong to others?

To see but to never hold
To miss but to never kiss
To love but to never be loved back

Or maybe its just my lifestyle..maybe if i changed that. i mean how am i suppose to meet new ppl? Im not christian i dun go church n do all that gathering singing stuff. I dun go clubbing. I dun mix wif strangers easily. yea.. mebee i shud change that. Try to b more friendly to ppl i dun really know. (ok note to that) Gonna b pretty tough, i can get rather moody.

But i do wonder what women look for in men..ive seen uglier, fatter, dumber, rude assholes , bastards ,gayish-looking and amazingly shorter guys getting chicks. If it isn't an obvious quality it must be the attitude or personality...hmm....some ppl get away wif being assholes so being nice and polite is out. Hmm.. what is it? Dominant and confident? Probably.. or maybe i just haf this aura of desperation. Or mebee i haf the worst timing in the world. hmm... I wonder how those 'spanar' ppl do it..i alwiz found it distasteful. But that might just be my one and only option.

RM30++ for a set dinner

Appetizer : bread and butter , shrimp and salmon salad

Soup : asparagus

Main course : grilled ribeye steak

Dessert : Tea, ice cream and hazelnut cake

Location : Inside Continental hotel, on upper pg road near SS

French cuisine with its small portions is a delightful change of palate from my usual "straight to main course" ways. Separating the meal into several courses allowed me to better enjoy my food. It was a nice change from normal routine. The dishes are well presented,the appetizer was nice, the salmon and shrimp tasted fresh..the salad..well no comment, im no salad fan after all.

I was a little apprehensive with the asparagus soup but it tastes really nice. Now for the main course, the steak was delightful. I ordered it medium done, and it was great .. cooked outer layer with pinkish red meat center. Tender and juicy, perfect. The mash potato at the side also tastes very nice...and is shaped unlike any mash potato i ever had b4. Kinda like benjo egg only tat its mash potato.

Nice place, definitely wud luv to go back again. Can go dating there.
Location : in Continental hotel, along Penang Road. Opposite the clubbing area there

I did not give 5 stars because its not a revolutionary explosion of taste, but it is a nice restaurant with good food and good price.
4.5 out of 5

Cempakaria Thai Food

Telur bungkus, seafood tomyam, kangkung and chicken.
6 rice,4 drinks
4 ppl.
come to about rm50++.

The place is very secluded, along Jalan Datuk Koyah same row as Kayu. Can turn in from penang road (after Odeon if u follow the one way road) The tomyam was nice, if u like it sour then this is the tomyam for u. I think the tomyam wud haf been much redder but we ordered it less spicy so the colour is more clear. The telur bungkus was also very egg omelette with 'chap' and meat inside. The kangkung to me was just normal and lastly the chicken-sumting was also good with nice 'chap'. Syok.

4.5 of 5 stars

So it begins....

To me,

All these years of talking to myself, now i can write it all down.
And maybe in years to come i can look back and see wat dumb weird thoughts i've had.

From me.
