Lorong Selamat 12 Nov 2007

Char Koay Teow

Location : Along lorong Selamat, perpendicular to Jalan Macalister. Oh...and the CKT stall is now it's own shop. Just abit down where it used to be.

Ladies and gentlemen, the one and only......Lorong Selamat CKT!

Now the price for besar wan is RM7.50 sial. But once in awhile come makan this ok la. The aroma that can only be achieved by the charcoal stove is heavenly. The taste is just at the right strength for me. The aroma and the perfect kuay teow is already enough to make it the best i've ever had. But tambah with the huge succulent prawns, fuuh unbeatable.

Octopus/CKT and Rojak Lok Lok 02 Nov 2007

Too Boh Sooi (Octopus)

Location : At jalan Kampung Gajah(i think) on mainland. Same road as Dewan Haji Ahmad Badawi. Beside Cathay/ Star Screen cinema. Open night (7 ~ 8ish)
Just one stall, selling octopus and ckt.

Octopus. My first time eating. Looks alot like sotong. Simply steamed and served with chilli. Very nice.

The CKT sold at the same stall was marvellous. The "wok hei" memang kow kow. Really liked it.

Rojak Lok Lok

Location : Near the Dewan Haji Ahmad Badawi. Just directly across the entrance of pejabat kesihatan Seberang Prai. From the entrance it would be the stall on your left.

Special fruit rojak where u pick sticks of fruits like lok lok style, and dip it into rojak sauce.
Very novel and nice.

Tomyam at Bayan Lepas 09 Nov 2007

Bangkok Tomyam

Location : Hmm..susah ni. If ur heading towards airport from Bayan Lepas,go on the flyover to Teluk Kumbar (This is at the roundabout where u turn left to the airport). At the 1st traffic light after the flyover, make a U Turn. After the U Turn, take ur 1st left. Do not go back on the flyover. Bangkok Tomyam is the shop on ur left.

Jie jie and her coach hand bag

- Fish
- Ayam Kunyit
- Sayur Campur
- Telur Bungkus
- Tomyam

Splendid. The tomyam is just splendid. I think i ate 3 plates of rice. This is the type of tomyam i really like. The other dishes are also nice. Overall a wonderful dinner. For 5 ppl it comes out to approx RM60.

Alor Setar Trip 08 Nov 2007


Special Alor Setar kai si mee. The sauce is not black like wan tan mee, but a simple clear sauce. Probably prepared with just salt and fried onion. Simple yet delicious.


Nothing special, just ordered dishes. The only thing worth mentioning is this plate of shark in the plate below. Novel, but not especially delicious.

Afternoon Activities

Mahathir's Birth Place

Menara Alor Setar

Sumting Garden

A nice garden with many things on display. Stone carvings, wood sculptures, rocks and various animals. With wild running mountain goats as well!

Oh come on... surely you can guess this island!

Woah..can make giant handbag with this

Can eat this drumstick syok lo


For dinner, we had seafood at Kuala Perlis.

The small signboard that took us half an hour to find


Ah..the ever present sotong goreng

Black Pepper Lai Liu Ha

The not so "Kam Heong" Kam Heong Crab

The seafood i have to say is nothing spectacular. In my opinion Bukit Tambun seafood tastes better. Not worth the trip. Also the crab meat irritatingly sticks to the shell making it unpleasant to extract.

But oh well, it was a nice little one day outing to Alor Setar. Oh and Kuala Perlis and Bukit Kayu Hitam. And what a really pleasant surprise to get "Da Hong Pao" tea from Doe's mum. Thank you aunty!

Circling Penang Island

Stop 1

Titi Kerawang Waterfall

1st we set off from Bayan Lepas, through Balik Pulau and end up here in Titi Kerawang

The sign board stole the limelight

Mmmm....relaxing waterfall. Water sejuk sejuk...syok.

Woohooo sliding down the rocks. Shud haf take video :P

Oooooh...What a rush!

Gaya. Mutu. Keunggulan.

Stop 2

Teluk Bahang Dam

Reach here too late liao. Nothing to see.

Stop 3

End Of The World Restaurant

Seafood..glorious cholesterol laden seafood!!!

The ubiquitous sotong goreng

Rm 50 sumting "Tau Tey"

Woohoo...curry Crab

Ah...fav "kong"

Wah lau eh... perfect peeled "kong". Best.

To be able to peel the claws perfectly as the pic above, the crab meat must not stick to the shell. I've eaten some crabs that have their meat stuck to the shell making crab eating a teeth gritting, hair pulling, stress inducing activity.

Stop 4

Batu Feringgi DVD

Beli justice Pao DVD for mummy only.

Stop 5

Supper at Subaidah near Gurney

Just because i want drink Teh Peng.
