Baked cheese rice @ Max Gourmet

We were looking for something not too expensive in QueensBay. Nothing much inside so we walked outside and found this restaurant, Max Gourmet. Just outside QB main entrance, same row as SenQ.

A set of herbal ginseng and curry fish cutlet baked cheese rice is about RM10.
The ginseng is really herbal-ish and horrible which i assume means its healthy.
The cheese rice was nice. Curry, bell peppers and onions make a pretty good mix with baked cheese rice.

Overall, it's an ok place.

Beef Koay Teow @ Lebuh Pantai

Mmm...beef. Wonderful beef. Penang, heaven of food, is not known for many beefy dishes. One that i know of is this beef koay teow soup.

Woah..really syok. Nice beef soup, a little sweet, but otherwise just wonderful. Not as thick as beef stew, but not too light that u cant taste the beefy-ness. Alot like koay chiap but with beef.
Many weird organs as well.

Tak tau apa bulu ni. Wrinkled wan. Ketiak ar?

Strong beef flavor like oxtail. Tendons mebee?

Some kinda soft horrible tasting thingie.

The beef balls were also quite nice. Overall it was a really nice meal. One big bowl costs RM8 (fuuh), small one is RM7. But since its my first time eating beef koay teow soup, dun know if this is very good or just ok. But i like i give it

Siu Long Pao
Finally, after so long wanting to taste Dragon-i siu long pao. jeng jeng jeng....

But photo taking skills not good la. Anyways...the dumplings were wonderful. Just dump a piece into your mouth and wah.....heaven. At the first bite, the soup flows out and fills your mouth. The taste is just wonderful.

Mapo Tofu

A classic SzeChuan dish. Szechuan cuisine is known for its numbing spiciness. The one here is probably very much toned down to appeal to the masses.

Nevertheless, the mapo tofu here is really nice. Since I have no prior experience I have not much comment. But I like it.

Seafood Ramen

Above is the seafood ramen i ordered. The ramen in Dragon-i is indeed special. The ramen by itself is already very tasty. Im no expert but if I had to guess it would be the elasticity and fullness off the noodles that made it taste nicer.

Double Western Bacon Cheeseburger @ Carl's Junior

Carl's Junior Burger

Double Western Bacon Cheeseburger
Two Charbroiled all-beef patties, two strips of bacon, two slices of melted American cheese, onion rings and tangy BBQ sauce on a sesame seed bun. camera skills memang lembab. Doesnt look appetizing. The pic at the top (got from Carl's Jr website) much nicer. Anyway thats the burger I had my first time at Carl's Junior. That burger ala carte costs approx RM18 @,@

But wah sai...very "tat" oh. Kesedapan giler. The taste of the grilled beef patty memang syok. You definitely cant go wrong with bacon and burger. The onion rings add crispiness and I think is the only vege there. Any meat loving person like myself would definitely enjoy this. The only complain wud be it is a bit dry. I think the Portobello Mushroom Burger would be juicier because of the mushrooms. So that is a must try for me next time.

In a blink of an eye 2007 is over. Last year's resolution is still unaccomplished. Sigh...still single. Perhaps the new year will bring more exciting changes to my life. Well i guess the greatest accomplishment of 2007 would be the creation of this blog. Now i can write my resolutions for 2008 here, and if i forget it will remind me.

1. Get GF
Now this resolution has been left unaccomplished for far too many years. This year i better start taking chances and maybe shake up my attitudes abit. Is there a chronic fear of commitment or rejection lying somewhere deep within me? Is something wrong with me?

2. Get COOL New Job
Now this resolution seems to be running along fine. There might even be significant breakthroughs in the very very near future. ;)

3. Learn The Fine Art Of Italian Cooking
Italian food has always been one of my favourite cuisines. I wanna be able to cook a nice Italian dish that no noob-amateur-nobody can just cook by following easy simple recipes.

4. More Social and Confident
Sometimes I feel that i'm not totally comfortable being myself infront of ppl I don't really know. I guess its like theres something inside me that isnt so sure of myself. I need to change this, and allow my opinions to verbally flow freely. To assert myself when needed, and for me myself to truly belief what a great person I am.

5. Regain My Loss Gym Powers
WTH man?! The legendary Gym Director reduced to a fat soft faggot at the end of 2007?
Come On! Regain thy lost passion! Return to thy former Spartan glory!
