24 hours to respond


The email , no matter how some may say is archaic and redundant is still relevant . At least for me .
But I check less and less these days , and it was right at this idyllic , butterfly filled countryside spot , when I came across one such that made me go into panic mode .

Brussels Beer Café - table for four


By the time we realised that we had definitely overordered , perched on the high chair area right in the corner , we made a quiet resolve to systematically remove some plates bit by bit because if you assembled them all at once , it would have looked like we had just been let out of prison .

Right , let's see what we shared amongst ourselves .

Beer Food Platter comprising ...
Blind finches ( I could drink the sauce provided together with it , all day , and get drunk on that alone lolz ), roast pork ( mouthwatering crackling skin is always such a bonus ) , squid tentacles , smoked duck breast ( fantastic ! ) , Belgian frites .

Forever not enough


It's a week to Raya and there are massive sales in just about every corner . 
In fact , I don't remember the discounts being this hefty before ( last year saw a lot of new beautiful stocks towards Raya but this year , there are massive clearance sales , and I mean massive ) but oh my gawd , you'd better go check out the good shopping complexes here .

Anyway , now that I have dedicated my time to and adopted a firm exercise schedule , the word 
SALE hung up all over the shop ,
proved too much !
Alas , I caved in and came out with 4 more very " necessary " sports bras from where else but Forever 21 .
Reasoned with myself that their durability and colour fastness was an
" investment " 
( what self delusional bs )

Good Luck Bah Kut Teh - Bayan Baru


Well , well , well .
Just when you least expect cheap , clean and fast to exist side by side on Penang island , walla , a place like this pops up .

And when I say cheap , I am not referring to those places where bah kut teh still costs MYR 5.50 per portion for per person . Don't know about elsewhere , but if it costs that little on the island , you're freaking risking it ! Not gonna elaborate on that matter further .

Anyway , the cheap I am talking about , hovers around ( more or less ) 10 ringgit per person . 
Certain places command two times that amount but don't expect premium meat . Sometimes , I think those expensive joints are either scams or pure herd mentality hype .

Lemme explain further with regards to the pricing ....if you order a bowl of bah kut teh soup for 2 pax , at Good Luck , it is just gonna cost you around 20 ringgit , not inclusive of drinks , rice and any add ons .
3 persons = 30ish , 4 = 40 ish .

Lemang Lebuhraya - Changloon


Coming down the highway from Bukit Kayu Hitam , you will have to drive through Changloon .

At that time I was hungry ,so when I saw the small row of tilted bamboo being smoked in the open, by the roadside , we made a stop as I wound down the window to ask the boy if I could have the 6 ringgit ( cheapest ) portion as indicated on the banner .
He nodded his head .
