The house I am renting now is having Termites! For the last 5 days i and my family have been sleeping with the fumes of the Termites Spray, as well as not having a ceiling in the bath room.

Replacement Wood being delivered

The saga started when our next door neighbour ceiling collapse, and my wife notice the termite pest control people came, and she started looking at the ceiling, She call our land lord which came by to collect the rent and told the landlord about it.

Results of Busy Termites having meals

Land lord said we know about it, and we said "please do some thing about it." Privately i told my wife, if nothing is done, we are moving. Result a man came and did some spraying and check the wood, and told my wife, do not park the car at the poach, it may drop down any time.
The Landlord was inform and work to replace the wooden beams started. We ask that person to take a look at other locations and that when the toilet ceiling was remove. Thank God after 5 days all the work is over, with all the daily cleaning but the termites are still around some where, our other next door neighbour is also doing some repair works.

The mess to be clean up

Quite a bit of the wooden beams was remove, and speaking to the repairman, he say this not the first time repair work have been done. In hind sight, i notice new houses being build in the area use aluminium beam, and the local neighbourhood store now say that no one want to buy these houses.
. Well Lucky I do not own the house, but i am worried of my furniture which are mainly wooden or chip board, i will have to do some treatment on my own.

Fort Cornwallis India Mee

One in a while I get offer of free food in exchange for some work done. Well on this day the reward was Fort Cornwallis Indian Mee or Hameed 'Pata' Special Mee. and i must say that it is good.

This stall is located at the Fort Cornwallis Food Court, so those tourist out there you can drop by when you visit the fort. Well patronise, especially by the navy guys (from the nearby RMN base), Though I have to give this warning, Do not order your noodles extra Spicy hot, unless you can really take it. (I come from a family that spicy is normal, extra spicy is good), It was "Explosive" hot, and had a bit of trouble the next day.

To accompanied the mee, was Ice Kacang, a small bowl topped with Ice Cream, which help to cool down the hot noodles that i have ordered.

Back to the Main Course, the Noodles was explosive spicy hot, serve on a metal plate, (to prevent breakage), but tasty and good, with generous topping of Sotong (cuttlefish) mmmm. I can feel the noodles going down. I will be back for more, though with out specifying i want in extra hot.

1 final advice, the food court is a bit run down, crack cement, old tables etc, so i would advice those who like to consume their food in nice bright food court to think about it before coming here, But then the crack cement, old tables, tree growing through the roof add ambiance to the street food you can get here.

Federal Place/Theater Char Koey Teow

This Char Koey Teow Stall use to be at the Maybank that is near Lorong Kulit, where is a sign that say Kimbley Street Char Koey Teow, Now having move here there a Sign here that Say Ah Leng Char Koey Teow.
The Coffee Shop
Located not too far away from the Padang, Police Station at Datuk Keramat, the Stall is at a coffee shop just opposite Federal Theater or now what is now know as Federal Place along the main road George Town heading to Ayer Itam, Parking is hard to get.

The Stall (Right in front)

The Char Koey Teow here is as pricy at the one in Lorong Selamat, RM5 per plate normal and RM8 ++++ for special. The fella here use duck egg, and this stall is open for lunch. As with the price, what you get is extra big prawns. It is just as good as the stall in Lorong Selamat, without that long of a wait.

But to me it really a place i come too often, I bring out station big spending friends here as they are impress with the big prawns.

Lorong Selamat Char Koey Teow

Reputed at the Best Char Koey Teow in Town, a blog recently comment that the stall move shop just a few shop a way in a new coffee shop, As i was in town and need a urgent fix of char koey teow, i drop by and try out the new shop.

Now is this the original char koey teow? I am a bit, 50 50 to say either way, though to me it that this stall have loss some taste, but it look like the same person cooking it, and charcoal fire is use. I only been here once. It's still good, (dont get me wrong) but a bit lacking in taste on this day.

I like the new coffee shop though, its clean. I had the normal Char Koey Teow which is 50% more then what us penangite usually pay for char koey teow. ;-) as the special is just only extra prawns and stuff. A bit disappointing is the lack of Cockles. which to me is the highlight of Char Koey Teow.

How to get here?, simple, look for the UMNO Building, or the Pakistan Mosque, Lorong Selamat is just next to the UMNO Building.


I will need to confirm by trying out the stall at the original shop.

Nasi Ayam from KFC

Now a days Fast Food Chains is looking at the humble chicken rice or nasi ayam as a potential money spinner. You have the Chicken Rice Shop, Ayammas and now we have International Kentucky Fried Chicken serving up this dish.
Why? I suppose all Malaysian eat chicken and like rice. KFC version of chicken rice is their basic set, but instead of the salad and mash potato, they give you the chicken flavoured rice, and chicken soup in a set with their fried chicken.
I tried it out, no a bad combination, it should do well, with one clause, the rice have a plasticky flavour to it? How come, No QC Check? KFC should look into this seriously as is spoiled everything. The rice was nice a flavour full, though adding a extra rice cost RM1.50/- but for that plastic taste and smell. Urg! I don't think i will be back for more of the Colonel Chicken Rice

The Tray of Colonel Chicken Rice

Keropok Lekor / Fish Flavoured Fritters

Keropok lekor is a commonly found Deep Fried Fish Flavoured Fritters, in the shape and size of a "finger" in the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Eaten as a snack, with a dip of chillies sauce it is a good source of protein as it is made from fish mix with with flour.

The Bag of Keropok Lekor

It is unusual for it to be found on the west coast especially in Penang, there for my surprise when i saw a stall selling this at Carrefore Prai, and at RM1/- per cup but smaller in size (Bite size). Having tasted this keropok when i was in kuantan. I have to say that this product here is about just as good. I will be back for more especially at this price, and that it is prepared in a hygienic way. I hope we will be seeing more of this Franchise around.

Picture taken infront of the Penang Railway Station at Butterworth. Wish there is more information or a Malaysian Railway Museum . Or is there one already but we do not know about it

The Other Delima Coffee Shop at Island Glade

I drop by with my family at the other Delima Coffee Shop (the old one) and while the place is small and is just the corner lot beside the 4 D shop, the food is good, Penang Price. I prefer it over the other coffee shop which i posted earlier, i will be back for more.
Koey Kak, A sister of Char Koey Teow, Cook the same method, but using cube noodles instead of flat noodles. "Penang" Hokkian Mee "Soup" Wan Tan Mee Eggs and Sausage

Ching Ming 2008 Part 1

Offerings for my Pertenal Grand Parents

at the Po Tay Temple

Last week on Sunday, It's was off to the various places for the family annual ching ming do. First we were at the Beow Hiang Lim Temple in Ayer Itam and then to the Christian Cemetery at Western Road and then Lastly to the Po Tay Temple at Bagan Jamal.
For the Story and last year visit go here.

Fruits Stall

This year we actually when for cheng ming 2 days after the actual day. but being sunday the crowd were still around. We manage to do the shopping earlier, for fruits, and the joss items leaving just the food stuffs and flowers for the last moment.

This resulted in a pretty full car boot, after a container of water and the vegetarian food stuffs. At the 2 chinese temples we provided prayers and offerings.

Burning Paper "Money", "Cloths" and " shoes"

Prayer table at the Beow Hiang Lim Temple.

It's getting harder to go for Ching Ming, 3 Kids to handle and 2 of them are young ones, but we still have to do it. Big Brother took us to Corner Club for their Tim Sum, Pretty good, Located at Gurney Drive.

Excellent Koey Teow Th'ng at Nibong Tebal, Penang

Penang Culinary Experience is found every where, Usually on the Island, but once in a while you can find them on the main land. Some how or other, Mainland Penangites seem to get to enjoy nice Koey Teow Th'ng, (Flat Rice noodles in Soup), This Kopi Tiam at Jalan Siong, Nibong Tebal sells only Koey Teow Th'ng and it is excellent.
The Dish is made with fresh ingredients such as prawns, pork meat ball and others parts as well, a Normal will set you back by RM3.50 and a Special by RM5.00 (thought with the price increase of noodles you may have to pay more). Kindly note that this is the only dish avaliable here so if you want some thing else sorry.

How to find this place you ask? Nibong Tebal is a pretty small town so it's not to difficult, If you enter town from the North, which is via the Railway Station, (tosai), Keep to your left, and near the end of the main road (way pass the Maybank) there is a small lane on the left, (lorong Siong) which is one way, drive up that lane till close to the end.


Note: Open Lunch Only

Penang Lakas is Round Rice noodles serve in a spicy sourish fish soup, garnish with cucumber onions and salad cut in Jullian, should be eaten with prawn paste.
Chendol is another famous Penang food, Mini Pandan Flavored Dumplings serve with coconut milk, and gula melaka, (coconut brown suger) and ice.

Cage Mercy

We were at the Beow Hiang Lim Temple, for Ching Ming (prayers for my ancestors) just a few day back and at a certain corner of the Temple Grounds, I could see Kek Lok Si, or Temple of the Supreme Bliss, with its Kuan Yin Statue, which is undergoing works.
The Kuan Yin Statue or Goddess of Mercy Statue, looks like it is being enclose in a cage! Which lead to to entitle this Photo "Cage Mercy".

Sky Mansion

3 Fabulous Mansion high in the Sky, Pearl Hill, Penang

Night Photo Mode - Fuji Finepix S5700

I use to take night photos back in my student days, using a Pentax K - 1000, I manage to get beautiful Night Photos of Geneva, and Montreux in Switzerland, So I decided to try out how well the Fuju Fine Pix will handle Night Photos.

At my favourite Burger Stall at Tanjung Bungah, (Previous Posts, Label Burger), i have a good view of Paradise Hotel, I decided to shoot the Roof Neon Signage, I brace the camera on the roof of my car, set it to "Night" for one Shot and "Auto" for the other. Set the self timer and shot away. Result: The "Auto" Shots were "Hazy"around the signage but more of the building can be seen. The "Night" shot (photo above), it is clear.

For my 2nd Trail, I took a photo of what i call, Sky Mansions, at Pearl Hill, (That a future Post), at maximum zoom and using the "Night" Setting, The above is the result, Clear view of the House Balcony.
This create my next problem, where to find beautiful pictures of Penang at night to shoot? This is where i can think off.
1. Prangin Mall Roof Top Parking?
2. Gurney Drive (Evergreen Hotel) shooting toward Bagan Jamal?
3. Esplanade? Shooting the Town Hall etc
4. Queensbay Mall area, toward the Bridge
5. Using the Emergency Stops on the Penang Bridge. ;-)
keep a watch out @PhotoShoot because there where i will be posing my photos from now.

ATM & New RM50 Notes

What with our new malaysian RM50 note, ATM does not recognise them, and that has been going on for 3 months. The above photo is a explanation by City Bank that the New RM50 cannot be use for their Deposit Machine.
Now if it is only one month after the new note is introduce, i can understand, but this is already 1/4 of the year, What up? Banks in Malaysia does not live up to the expectations. What it one has only the new notes, so we cant pay, but if we cannot pay the bank will penalise us right? I prefer bank with teller, not machines, we are human beings.

Introducing @PhotoShoot : http://penangphotoshoot.blogspot.com/
@ PhotoShoot is my Blog on Amateur Photography. (Snapshot is my Learning Blog.) I was bitten by the Photography bug, thanks to my elder brother, 30 years back. He gave me a permanent loan of a Pantax K1000, SLR (I actually still have it), and I purchase a 80 -200 zoom lens.
For the next 3 years while studying in Switzerland, I was shooting a roll of 36 every month, on top of being the school photographer. That cost me SFr 50 per month inclusive of Printing 3R photo and the Flim. (SFr 1 = RM 1.40 at that time), which is almost my entire monthly allowance.

I stop when I came back to Malaysia and started working, as my Pay check is barely enough to cover expenses and other priority like car, dating and family came up.
Now with the maturity of Digital Cameras, gives me the opportunity to restart this hobby at affordable price. Low price camera from Lelong.com, A blog to share the photograph, instead of printing it out, have brought the cost of this hobby down though it still costs for memory cards, storage, batteries, and the prints you do actually need etc.
The Fuji FinePix S5700, while not being a DSLR, is a extremely capable camera considering it price, It’s 10 X Optical and 4.8 X Digital zoom with 7.1mp give it the ability to reach out and shoot candid shots with out your target being aware of it even in low light condition. Though it picture can be a bit grainy, but better a slightly grainy shot then loss memories.
I achieve this slightly grainy and shaky photo, with the “target” around 200 meters away with all the zooms being set on maximum ie 10X Optical and 5 X Digital, (which frankly is not a good idea), further It’s a hand held shot with out any support.
It’s Super Macro enable me to photograph a close up of a Fly on a Tomato Sauce Bottle, for the photo see the earlier post, Super Macro Mode.
The link to @PhotoShop is here or look at the Good Blog section on the sidebar. You will find (that is over time) photography tips as well as various photographs to view. Please Note that the photos taken by the Fuji FinePix Camera have been resize to 2Mp and at 80% quality for ease of loading and memory space consideration.

Super Macro Mode

Super Macro Mode for the Fuji FinePix S5700, really work, the manual say it will focus at 1cm, i had my doubts, now take a look at the picture that fly was practically 1cm from the lens.

Torn Flags

I hate the sight of torn flags being flown. In general, we put up flags to show our loyalty, our respect, to instill loyalty. Torn Flags show disrespect, It is a disgrace. I feel that those who put up flags must be responsible enough to take them down when the flags show sign of ware. For me Flags must be taken down at dusk and place up at Dawn, at least in place where I was the manager in charge.
