Happy 2009!


Hi Everyone! I am back after a long holiday break. It was a very enjoyable and relaxing holiday for both my son and myself. I didn’t cook at all during this period. I am so glad that my son loves all my mum’s cooking especially her “char siew” (barbeque) chicken.

My hubby joined us towards end of December. He had not been to Penang for 2 years. Therefore, both of us launched a crazy food hunt to solve his “cravings”. At the end, we felt so quilty for overstuffing our stomaches with all the “sinful” food. As expected, our weights had gone upwards. 🙁 . Needless to say, my new year resolution is ……….. (Hehehe! I bet you know, right?)

After the holiday, there are millions of outstanding matters that I need to attend – unpacking, washing, cleaning, ironing, cooking etc etc. As Chinese New Year is approaching, I also have to do my spring cleaning. A super duper busy schedule to kick start my 2009 year. I will share with you some food photos I took in my next posting.

Below are some photos I snapped for fun:

(a) Potted plant at my sister’s condo balcony


(b) Penang view from my sister’s condo balcony. The tall building is Penang Komtar.

    Hi Everyone,
    Nice to hear from you again! Thank you so much for your support and kind words!!! *O*

    Hi Sharon,
    Tks for dropping by and glad that u luv the pancakes. 😉

    Hi Piggy,
    Usually during CNY, many shops will be closed. Otherwise, there will be very long queue and the hawkers will increase their price. Anyway, I hope you will have a yummilicious food adventure during this coming CNY!

    Hi Malaysian Food Cuisine Blog,
    Sure! Tks for the link! I had put yours too. 😉

    Hi Beachlover,
    It is sad that Komtar is a very run-down building now. I heard that the local govt is going to revive this place. What? U took bus in Penang? I have not been taking a bus there for more than 2 decade! Hehehe!

    Hi Tin,
    If u like these “postcards”, give me ur address, I will send them to u. Hehehe! Tks for your compliment. 😉
