Summer Garden Food Bistro, Vale of Tempe

I am going to end this post for year 2007. Year 2007 is a year where I started a blog of my own, a little corner where I post about food , about life . And with these 2 corners of mine, I got to know many friends like WMW , Living in Food Have, Lots of Craving , Ipoh Mali Talak Sombong , M’sia Best , Sembang & Talk , Rainbown , 24hrMom , Celine , Precious Pea , Tummy Thoughts , Lingzie and many more. Though I’ve not seen them personally, but down deep my heart I treasure this virtual friendship, cuz, I know it’s hard to find good friends nowadays, friends that taught you where to find good food, how to cook good food, etc. [wink] I don’t know how many of us in Penang aware of this place call Vale of Tempe. I was told this is a winding road that access to a reservoir and it’s famous of its mystery stories. Well, here to day we are not talking about any mystery stories but FOOD!!!!! Found this place when I attended a farewell dinner few days ago, and immediately I like its cosy a

Feast Village, Pangkor Laut Resort

Image
I promise this would be my final post on Pangkor Laut Resort…. And I know I’ve not had the time to visit other blogs like WMW , Jackson , Joe , Precious Pea , Tummy Thoz , Jason , etc. I was busy before that, then, was on holiday mood, and wasn’t focus on blogging. I know I have to claim an award from Sweet Jasmine too… Oh gosh, I have a lot to catch up, don’t I? When you’re in holiday mood, you’ll tend to get up early, well for at least I did that. I just want to get up as early as possible to enjoy whatever I’ve missed; including having luxury breakfast in this island. A slow walk from my villa to Feast Village was a pleasant experience, cuz, I get to feel the see breeze, hear the sea waves hits the shore, and birds tweeting too. Though the wind blew to my face was cold, but, it gives you a boost that you should be wake up right now and have your breakfast. Didn’t really have much on the day, probably am sad that am leaving soon. Just had few slices of bread, yogurt, fresh fruit

Uncle Lim's Kitchen, Pangkor Laut Resort

It was not really a good one on my 2nd day of dinner. Was told Uncle Lim’s Kitchen is one of the best in the island, it serves authentic Hock Chew cuisine and Nyonya cuisine. I was hoping to have authentic Hock Chew food for that night, but they served Nyonya food instead. Perhaps that’s the disadvantage of signing up for a package. Honestly, the food serving was rather slow on that night, not too sure was it because of lots of people dining in or lack of helpers. Food serving wasn’t that big portion, you can see that from these pictures… They served us a bowl of dried vegetable boiled soup as a starter. I believe it’s been boiled for many hours, the soup was delicious…. Just like Cantonese soup. Then followed by a Chicken Lobak as a appetizer. The lobak is kind of dried to me, was it they deep fried it for too long? In between Chicken Lobak and the main dishes, we waited for nearly 25 minutes. Thank goodness we both weren’t hungry for that point in time, but, it wasn’t reasonable

Chapman's Bar, Pangkor Laut Resort

When the resort van transports us to the other side of the island after our Spa treatment, my jaw dropped off cuz, I’ve not seen such a beautiful bay before, at least in Malaysia. The colors of the water are clear and clean, it’s like an emerald jade. Can’t blame me for falling in love with this island… indeed is a paradise island to me. I know there are many more of such islands in the world, but at least for one island in Malaysia that made us proud. Don’t you think so?? Even the late Luciano Pavarotti also fell in love with this island. After Spa, both of us were equally hungry, and I was told Chapman’s Bar is one of the better places for lunch in this island. This place only opens for lunch from 12pm to 5pm. You will see lots of people lying down on the beach chair and rest either read books or for a swim. I actually got to know from the internet that this bar is named after the famous British Colonel, Freddy Spencer Chapman who spent 36 hours on Pangkor Laut during his escape f
