New World Park

Sunday afternoon is another makan-makan session, since Kenny is in town.

Late lunch for the day - Penang Assam Laksa & Duck Egg Char Koay Teow in Greenlane.

And not forgetting the so-so Loh Bak. Btw, this is not Lobak nor Carrot. And most importantly, this was not the end of the makan session yet...... Remember the roadside hawker stalls in Swatow Lane?

These were the roadside hawker stalls in Swatow Lane of yester-months (taken in September 2006). These scene is no longer available, cos it is now replaced with the newly built......

And this place is now called New World Park Hawker Centre. More spacious, more airy, more seats, more privacy, less stuffy, cleaner, more food selection, more parking spaces bla bla bla.. Indeed it's a much better place to TCSS, and the food price still remains the same.

Ais Kachang and Penang Fruit Rojak with Sotong.

The ever famous Chee Cheong Fan stall in Swatow Lane. U can judge the popularity of the stall by the never ending, constant number of customers

Most hawker stalls still keep their old sign board & price list for the food items despite having a new food items & price list board on the wall. Nostalgic kua? Got sentimental value kua? Mmm.. might be easier for the old timers customers to recognise the stalls kua?

Very confusing & misleading signboard. The writing in Chinese means Koay Teow Th'ng (dried) or Koay Teow Soup (dried). Does this mean this is the Koay Teow Soup without soup?


We spotted a hungry doggy. So white and so obedience, just like Liucas ;)

And not forgetting the Sotong Stall.. Err, I mean the Sotong Kangkung Stall.

My dinner for the night -> the mouth watering Sotong Kangkung + Jellyfish.
