Penang: Final Chapter

*Updated: A picture added at the bottom of the Penang post.

Our afternoon flight back to KL was on the next day. Therefore, we had our breakfast at the nearby dim sum food court. The reason I mentioned food court because it is actually a food court instead of a restaurant.

Besides that, you have to queue up to look for the dim sum that you want to eat. Basically, it is self-service.

Enough said. Pictures time.

Up for "siew yuk" anyone?

Photobucket

Maybe some light starters?

Photobucket

The legendary prawn dumplings.

Photobucket

Photobucket

And many more which I didn't take a photo of it.

We took more than 10 plates of dim sum and some other snacks.

The bill came out to be RM 40++

Although the food was not as nice as those in Eastin Hotel, but for that price, I reckoned it was worth the price we pay.

On a lighter note, here's another narcissistic picture of me. XD

Testing....

What do you think of this picture?

Photobucket

Just doing a test shot with my DIY softbox.

Will update more about the shot. Stay tune.

Seafood Dinner by the Sea.

After visiting Kek Lok Si, we went to the nearby village for a seafood dinner.

Photobucket

I couldn't recall the name of the place but one thing that I could still remember is that the seafood was awesome! *two thumbs up*

Firstly, we had "ho chien"/"hou chien" (fried omelette with oysters) as starters.

Photobucket
Fried Oh Chien!

One thing about eating seafood in Penang is that you can assure yourself of eating fresh seafood. Take the fried oh chien for example, I usually dislike eating the ones back in KL because of the "fishy"(oh whatever you call it) taste in the oysters. Somehow, I enjoyed eating the delicious fried oh chien because I could hardly detect the "fishy" taste. Other than that, you should see the size of the oysters served - many times bigger than the ones served in KL.

Next in line would be fried "lala" (clams).

Photobucket

The clams were fresh and juicy with a sweet taste *period*

The main reason we decided to have seafood dinner there was due to the famous grilled crabs. According to my mom, they served crabs with lots of roe(crab eggs) during her previous visit to Penang.

We were so excited when the grilled crabs arrived because we only ordered 1kg and it turned out to be like this:

Photobucket

HOLYBBQWtf Grilled CrabsSsSsSSS!!

To our realistation, the waiter made a mistake and ours turned to be only this:

Photobucket

And here's to the roe!

Photobucket
Golden Juicy!

That's all folks!! Dim Sum next morning!!!

Kek Lok Si

Right after brunch, we went to Kek Lok Si. It has been 11 years since I last visited Kek Lok Si.

Photobucket

I can say that for the past 11 years, Kek Lok Si has been improving itself, from staircase to inclined elevators.

Photobucket

Since it was chinese new year, the entire temple was decorated with beautiful lanterns.

Photobucket

Not to forget the wonderful walkways.

Photobucket

Photobucket

And also the grand entrance to each of the small praying halls.

Photobucket

After an hour of gallivanting, we finally left Kek Lok Si and tried the famous asam laksa in the market near Kek Lok Si.

Photobucket

In my opinion, I still prefer the asam laksa from my neighbouring pasar malam.

One Utama In Penang

I was shocked when I came out from Kek Lok Si and saw this!

Photobucket

Do you see anything odd about that signage?

Hmmm...maybe this will ring the bell.

Photobucket

What next? One Utama secondary school?

Food Haven Penang

Many people told me that Penang is full of delicious, mouth watering food. I was uncertain at first until I had experienced it in Lorong Maccallister for breakfast.

Firstly, we ordered Fried Lobak as starters.

Photobucket

Then, my mom ordered the famous Nasi Lemak.

Photobucket

After breakfast, we proceeded to the famous Char Kuey Teow stall in Penang which is located in Jalan Selamat. One thing that attracted my attention was the signage.

Photobucket

Holy cow! RM 8.00 for a plate of Char Keuy Teow from a hawker stall. Yikes! But well, for the entertainment like this:

Photobucket

as well as a plate of spicy delicious char keuy teow (RM 6.00), I reckoned it was worth eating.

Photobucket

We then had Ice Kacang for dessert near the Char Kuey Teow stall. They even put ice cream in the ice kacang. Creative isn't it? But it will cost you RM 3.00 each.

Photobucket

I went to Penang during the weekends to visit my sister. I just reached home half and hour ago and I am uber tired. =(

More updates to come..

Happy Valentine's Day

Pack The Floor 24: Finale

This is going to be the last set of Pack The Floor 24 because I don't have anymore nice pictures from the event. Kinda screwed up most of the shots.

Right after the performance by Urban Groove, Christien New and the wife were invited to lead the crowd to dance YMCA.

Photobucket
He "spiced" up the crowd. *This is just a joke. =) *

The crowd seemed to enjoy the tutorials.

Photobucket

And the chiqas gone wild as well.

Photobucket

Out of the sudden, the lights went out. And something smokey was going on...

Photobucket

Juwita Suwito then started singing pop.

Photobucket

Just as her performance finished, it was time for Hannah Tan to perform. The bad news was, my camera battery died right before she could perform. =(

The very next morning, some Capoeira Association came to host a workshop for the participants.

Photobucket
"You kick, I duck.."

The Year of The Mouse

To all my readers of Hornian Enthalpy, I am sure that all of you are in a holiday mood and so am I.

This year, it is the year of the mouse and on behalf of Hornian Enthalpy, I would like to wish you a happy chinese new year!

Photobucket

May you prosper throughout the year and live a healthy life. =)

Pack The Floor 24: Part 2

At first, we thought that the SWAT officers were going to stop us from dancing because the atmosphere was as if we were having an illegal gathering.

Out of a sudden, a high tempo music was put up and the SWAT officers started their dance routines.

Photobucket
Boom!

To my realization, they were from the dance group - The Urban Groove. I personally felt that they re-defined dance standards with their high energy moves. One of their members, Fellest was the judge for Astro's Battleground dance competition.

Once again, he proved to be one of the best break-dancers in Malaysia with this move of his.

Photobucket
One Hand Stand

After the introductory dance, the chairperson of HMC, Leonard gave his short and wonderful speech symbolizing the start of Pack The Floor 24.

Photobucket
"Thank you for cumming coming......"

Quite a number of VIPs were invited. For example, we had Belinda Chee as our MC for the night. Christien New and his steamingly hot sexyback wife, Lavin.

Photobucket
*Chuckled*

I was shocked when Christien announced that Kenny Sia was in the event itself. Suddenly, all cameras were aiming at him till the guy himself had to take his camera to embrace himself.

Photobucket
"Please don't shoot me!!!"
