The SEO theory, link ....

I think I have been neglecting this little blog of mine for quite some time… 1 reason is heavy work load that I didn’t prioritize the task, 2, I’ve been really tired and thus neglecting this. Till today, I realize the visits hit is tremendously dropping down, I guess I gotta do my homework fast.

I have plenty of those pictures and yet to be downloaded, so, please bear with me and stay tune for more food reviews.

Ok, I got this SEO theory from Rainbow, and I’ve promised her I’ll do it over the weekend (can’t remember which weekend). And due to tiredness and busy, I actually call it a pass. Anyway, managed to squeeze some time for this …

Ok, let’s start with who will be the next person that I’ll tag …

1. Ai Wei
2. Christine Leng
3. Christy
4. Lots of Craving ~ Joe
5. Tigerfish

Start tag:

This is based on the SEO theory that links to posts inside your blog are more important than links to your home page. I have selected three posts I want to promote along with my site’s name. You will do the same thing. Keep it simple and spread our good work around to both share and build some ratings! Pick three posts that you feel are your best or those you simply want to promote. Your site name is listed with your 3 selected posts beneath. Once you have your post up: Add the sites and post links of the folks you tagged onto your post. Try to add the site and post links to anyone involved to maximize the effectiveness. Tag a minimum of 5 people! Try your best not to double tag people so it will spread better! Please actually read the posts from everyone so you can see some really good work from our beloved blogging friends! Make your title a little different from mine to avoid repetitive titles. Please try maintain some friendly updates to your post too.

QE II, Tanjong City Marina

Tell me which bistro, pub, restaurant is a talk of the town right now?? Hehehehe… I mean in Penang, la!!!

Well, I didn’t know this place until my friends told me about it. Since Friday, after work, hubby and I didn’t plan to cook at home and decided to eat out and this place is the place for the night.

This area is getting real hip nowadays, at night you’ll see lots of people, mostly youngsters come here for drinking session, gathering, meeting up with friends… and it’s like Bangsar! Hip, energetic, happening!!
I was told their pizza is good, home made crust & rich fillings. I didn’t have that but ordered a Spaghetti Arrabiata. Honestly, this is good!! The tomato pastes are perfectly match with this dried chili flakes that make this so rich in aroma.
Before the main course, we both actually ordered soup, I was conservative, didn’t want to try on others but only mushroom. I guess they were using the wild mushrooms, blend and cook with cream and garlic. Taste wise was so so, not that bad, but I find that something is missing, which I can’t tell what is that.
Another bowl of soup is Lobster Bisque, it taste nice based on hubby’s review. He was telling me that it will be perfect if they could serve with toasted bread.
After the soup, here comes our main course. Like I said earlier, I didn’t order Pizza for myself but a Spaghetti Arrabiata. Hubby got himself a QE’s Special Crusty Lamb. The outer layer of the lamb was crispy, and the meat are tender and juicy. It was unbelievable nice.
After the meal, he loves to have a cup of coffee, well, he didn’t get anything like that but a glass of Mocha Coffee instead.

Overall the food isn’t that bad, environment is superb romantic, as you could see yacht floating at the marina bay, and it’s also a place for friends meeting up for food, for drink. It’s cozy, and comfortable. The only thing is slightly disappointed is the food waiting time is rather long, beside that paying bills as well. It took 20 minutes for a bill.

Oh ya, how much have I spent, about RM117.40 for the meal. A lovely dinner with a cozy atmosphere and nice sea breeze, I guess that’s worth. And also you’ll have a quality time where you could spent with your loved one. Isn’t this marvelous?

Cheang Kee, Nibong Tebal

Nibong Tebal (高渊) is a small town in Seberang Perai Selatan. Anyone that driving down to south would have to pass by this small town before the North-South Highway was constructed. This town though is small and only 1 main road in this tiny town, but, you could find good food down here. Like Chinese saying Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (臥虎藏龍).

Why do I say that? Well, you never know there’s an eatery shop named Restoran Cheang Kee (璋記飯店), it’s a famous one down here. You could see lots of outstation people dropping by for food.

And, we are one of them, the outstation glutton. We drove all the way from Penang to Nibong Tebal (about 20 to 25 minutes drive) just wanted to try Cheang Kee dishes. Those days, we will be able to see the railway crossing as per schedule, now that they have built this state-of-art flyover, I honestly couldn’t recognize this place anymore. Honestly, it’s so well developed.

Ok, let’s cut it short… let’s talk about gluttons’ topic, aka FOOD!!!!!!!
The famous dish is their Crab Porridge. We only order bowl the other night, just thought of trying out. The taste was absolutely sweet (not that they put rock sugar), the sweetness is from the crabs. The crabs are rather small in size but it’s absolutely fresh.
Beside the famous dish, we also order this ‘snail’ fried with dried chilies. This is a completely different dish and we were surprise and kinda like it. It’s like Western food you’ll have Escargot, and for Chinese, we’ll have ‘snail’. [LOL]
Salted Fish stir fry Beans Sprout, one of our favourite dish, though it’s cheap, but it’s also very much depend on the cook whether can he or she could make this delicious or not, agree? Of course wok hei (鑊氣) is equally important!!
薑蔥田雞 People called this Paddy Field Frog (correct me if am wrong, ya?). This is good if stir fried with spring onions and gingers or dried chilies. And this is my favourite. Yum yum… this one must be a big one, as the meat wasn’t that tender, and it’s a bit tough.
We also have a simple steam fish. The fish is rather small in size, but the timing that they steam was absolutely just in time, cuz, the meat was so tender and smooth! But the sauce is a bit salty for my taste, and for old people too. [grin]
鱼鳔湯, typical Cantonese soup. The soup is also nice to taste, ingredients wise, they have mixed vegetables, ie carrot is small slices, sweet beans in small slices, pork minced meat, vegetables and of course 鱼鳔.

Guess how much we had spent?? RM138.30 for 7 pax dinner. Cheap?

Vegetarian Week

農曆九月其間, 到處會看到許多黃旗飄揚, 那就是九皇爺誕與雨的季節.
在這小島裡, 會看到許多信徒吃素, 這也是誠心祈福九皇爺規條.

然而因九皇爺誕, 也有許多老百姓為健康而吃素. 咱們就是這小數人民.

這三天假日裡, 對我來說也未必不是件好事, 可以利用這機會好好休息和調理自己身體. 吃素是其中之一.
這幾天來, 我的早餐, 午餐, 晚餐都是吃這些齋食品. 看了開胃嗎?

Sea Palace Restaurant, 海外天餐廳

Not too sure how many Penangites aware of this restaurant? Anyway, it’s located in Taman Pekaka, the taman that next to Tesco Extra (formerly known as Makro). This restaurant is in Lip Sin building located at 1st floor, if you approaching the restaurant, you’ll see a white board that listed down the dishes for the day. If you decided not to order those dishes that listed, they are more than happy to serve their customers.

Anyway, it was a weekdays, whole family organized this birthday dinner for my father-in-law. It was more of a family get together function and also a birthday celebration.

Hubby and I were late, due to back-to-back meetings, and we didn’t know what have they ordered that night. What we know was, by the time we sat down, dishes are ready to serve.
Here are the dishes, …. Steam fish, stir fried brinjal with fresh scallop, Belachan Chicken, home made popiah, 紅燒 pig’s trotter, butter prawns, broccoli with mushrooms, and Lam Mee for the “Birthday Boy”.
Some said the Belachan (Shrimp-paste) Chicken wasn’t that good, probably they use frozen chicken to deep fry.
I find that the home made popiah pretty nice, something different, it’s not the same as what we have at the road side.

The Lam Mee picture is kind of blur, I suspected the battery is getting weak and it’s not able to focus. Sorry guys.
Among the dishes, stir fried brinjal isn’t that up to expectation, first it’s very oily, secondly they should be deep fried first before they stir fried with scallop.

As for the 紅燒 pig’s trotter, more of my in-law’s favourite. Taste wise, not too bad, but that wasn’t our favourite to cook in this way.

Steam fish, … the flesh is tender and nice. I believe they steamed it within the time frame. Comparatively it was good among the others.

Northam Beach Café

It’s been some time I have not been to Northam Beach Café. This is another tourist spot. I believe many Penangites will agree with me.

Why? Well, because any tourist that visits Penang would love this place, cuz, this place is sea facing, lots of foods to try, whether it’s local, or Philippines, Hong Kong, Japanese cuisine. So, why not take your friend down here for a 1-Stop food haven, right?

I’ve not been to this place for quite some times, in fact, months… now that they have these gigantic lantern displaying. I guess that was because of the Mid-Autumn Festival. It wasn’t that distracting, in fact, it was nice to see.

Many people will choose to sit at the upper level, cuz, it’s closer to the sea. Especially in the evening, you could see sun set, nice gentle wind breeze. It was so pleasant.
Hubby was extremely hungry, so, he didn’t order anything light but get himself a plate of Char Siew & Siew Yok rice.
I ordered something extra, in case the plate of rice can’t fill up his hunger… so, an extra grilled chicken thigh, and chicken wings.

As for me, something light will do… since it’s been awhile I didn’t take Jawa Mee. So, I order one plate for myself and make sure they gave lots of chilies.
Probably, lots of people do tend to agree, the price here are slightly on the high side, even a glass of juice like this costs us RM3-30. Hokkien call this ‘Amrah Sui Boey’.

In any occasion if you’re here, do drop by this place. The food may not be your liking, but am sure you would love the wind breeze, and the sound of waves that hits the sea shore.
