Borneo Marathon 2008

Filed under: Personal — agnes @ 3:57 pm

Simontalks posted Borneo Marathon to be held in Kota Kinabalu in October 2008. I am thinking of the 10-km race which I think is manageable since it is in the city itself I can take my own sweet time to finish. 🙂

Penang Food

Filed under: Eating Out,Travel — agnes @ 6:00 am


There is nothing special in Penang food ingredients. It is the same ingredients you would get in Kuala Lumpur, Melaka and Singapore. The only difference is some magical skills are required to achieve Penang food quality.

Freshest ingredients-time to deliver from source to consumer, patience-time to pick, clean and prepare, care-manage raw carefully in the hot weather which even the roadside hawker would and superb cooking skill-time, heat and moisture are common traits of Penang food. Penangite often have individual palates to satisfy, each nurtured from young by loving family background irregardless of race nor religion.

I cannot compare Char Koay Teow(left) and Chee Cheong Fun(middle) in Penang and anywhere else I have been too.
My only comment – Speechless.

Penang Road’s TeoChew Chendol(right)-Icekachang also sell my childhood favourite, giant ice ball drenched with sarsaparilla and rose syrup. Selamat Makan!!!

Chicken Rice Lunch at Ayer Hitam

Filed under: Eating Out,Travel — agnes @ 3:08 am


Can you taste from looking at the pictures? Yes, the roasted meat, chicken, duck and pork are great. Let me introduce the chicken rice too, it is a star in its own. We almost had rice alone. Forget about asking me where this location exactly is. We passed by Sunshine Farlim, LonePine Condominiums (not the Lone Pine at Feringghi) and this is by the busy road. Our funny local friend, Kang Herng mentioned a haunted house on the Penang Hill, visibly blue or green in color (too sunny to see clearly). I hope you can figure where it is.

Weekend In Penang

Filed under: Travel — Tags: — agnes @ 5:30 am


It was a beautiful cloudy day when we were on Penang bridge. Awesome blue and grey colours accompanied by cool wind, hint of thunderstorm and downpour approaching. It has been too long since the last time to be in this beautiful moment. Trapped in air conditioned office, home and concrete jungle.


The rain came and left. By the time we reach Park Royal, sunny blue sky were already there to welcome us. I love to lie under the coconut tree all day, reading, napping and let the breeze run all over while the sun bake a roast of me.
