Longkang Date

*Warning : Sampat & Cheong Hei Post*

The story started with the unfortunate porky foot in a foreign land. Those who still catch no balls can read the details here.

The following day... Meeting Angel & LB. We found a new way of eating Vinegar Pork Knuckles, not with rice but together with Duck Egg Char Koay Teow. Geng leh? The dreadful hot weather was back. So hot can die.. We all minimise talking to prevent dehydration and to avoid from pengsan. After lunch, it's time to tapao Penang Assam Laksa, lormaikai, siew mai and one big curry puff for the injured ECL.

The happy (and hungry) ECL savouring the hot and spicy penang assam laksa inside the 1st class air conditioned room, and summore on the bed. So syiok.. Summore with free room service. We had a free demonstration how she hopped around in the room (Reminds me of the kangaroo. Shhhhhh...)

Following that, it's time for free show. Watching the free demonstration of the hilarious and stylish synchronised Olympic G Hotel Pool swimming. So funny can die. And we almost witnessed a free stripping show in the pool. Tick Tock Tick Tock... It's time for the "Add Salt" shopping trip. Mmmm.. The Giordano Outlet doesn't provide free salt, but they are generous enough to provide the priceless free "Air" with the split giordano polo (good to wear in hot weather mah, so thoughtful, huh?). Hahahahaha...

Visiting StarBucks is a MUST - somehow there was an unexpected magic show, and the supposedly tea was transformed into chocolate drink, courtesy of.. you know who.. Hahhaha. There were 3 antisocial people, sitting together at one table - never talk to each other but busy surfing online with the free WiFi. The story continues... and the highlight was the Small One hah, Not Big One joke. And not forgetting the "Ah Girl who walked to and fro several times in front of Star Bucks (She lost her way kua?).

Following that, it's the Lomantic Gurney Drive dinner.. The Emperor really brought rain to Penang. While we were happily eating Lormaikai, the 2nd class Penang Assam Laksa, savouring Penang Rojak (with the mysterious tungku?), Sweet Apom and slurping Soya Bean drinks, it started raining cats and dogs raining Liucat and Ah Boy. Stormy, stormy night, which doesn't stop someone from camwhoring.. We can still drool at the Lok Lok as Angel and I stood next to the Lok Lok stall for almost half an hour waiting for the rain to stop. Such a wet and sticky night... And the makan trip continued.. Loh Bak and Tofufah. I can heard someone echoing hungwee hungwee from afar in the middle of the night. MORE FOOD !!!!

The following morning is the Dimsum day in town - Lormaikai, Hor Yip Fann, Har Kau, Siew Mai, Char Siew Pao, Fei Chu Yoke or Sio Tu Bak and several dunno wat name weird stuff. Egg Tart and Yam Puff was out of stock woh... Bawl.

With hor yip fann and lormaikai fighting sitting side by side. Who is the ultimate winner?

Since no tungku siew pai kuat, Ah Boy had his fair share of Char Siew Pao & Char Siew Bun in return. And not only that....

He gets a free session of whole body massage leh, tickling and scratching and massaging.. courtesy of Angel and LB. Si Beh Syiok..

The long awaited Longkang Laksa Date finally arrived- a date which was planned since 2006. Long queue awaiting for the yummy treat in Air Itam Market... Luckily we dun have to squat by the longkang to savour the 1st class laksa, which goes well together with the Kepala Kelapa aka Coco-nuke drink.

Curry Mee? Ais Kacang? Nope... Must reserve some space in the single compartment tummy for Penang Road famous Teochew Chendol. How nice if we have 4 compartment tummy, as the MOo MoO? Tapao 2 more packets of mouth watering laksa back to the hotel.. And one big bunch of Penang Rambutan. Too bad have to give a miss to the lao hao sui Balik Pulau Durian.

After we hantam the famous Penang Chendol off Penang Road, the sky 'changed colour' within few minutes - which resembles chameleon. Good Bye to Mr Sun and a reluctant Hello to Mr Rain. Thank God we managed to reach the car on time before it started pouring, else will be soaked in the rain once again. The uplifting her koh smell inside the car and the lift.. And not forgetting the "phantom" durian incidence in the lift.. Really See Ghost. Kkkkkk.. Nope, we didn't tapao liulian back to the hotel :P

Another session of sampat Mono-The-Poly game on Palm Tx. We played the similar game almost a year ago, except this time Maymay was not around. Too bad... The defending champion struck again.*Ahem*, *paiseh*. Abuthen, that was a 101% fair game, guarantee no ti(p)u wan and no see ghost. Scottie Dog token really brings luck, that's why i always choose it as my token for Monopoly - my all time favourite ;)

Awaiting for Bernard from Sg Petani to join us for dinner. Somehow, he got stuck with an emergency surgery - Laparatomy for Mesenteric Artery Embolism. The supposed 7 pm dinner appointment had to be postponed till dunno when.. This time the lapar-atomy really made us lapar kaw-kaw liao. Tick Tock Tick Tock.. Everyone was super hungry liao.. The emperor had no choice but to beg for few rambutans from ECL's hubby. Kkkkkkkkkkkkk....

Called Bernard at 9 pm and found out he had just finished his case, but he was still inside ICU in Sg Petani. He suggested we had our meal first while waiting for his arrival, in an hour's time. It's time to sampat inside Chili's and have gastro resuscitation while waiting for Bernard's arrival. The exhausted Bernard nearly tripped on arrival when we waved at him from inside Chili's. He was too happy kua? or too hungry? or too tired? Luckily he didn't injured his leg, else really no eyes see.

Another session of crapping but we were not the most noisy wan, since there was an ongoing live drama next door... Someone was tempted to take photo of the explosive scene and blogged about it but too bad she was sitting and facing the opposite way. And not forgetting the Tu Kar talk before we finally called it a day.

* No See Ghost
but at least get to see the Pork Knuckles...
* No Ice Blended Durian
but at least get to smell the durians from afar (so far yet so near)...
* No sinful Gourmet Bak Kwa
but at least get to taste the plain soup BKT with sam chan yoke...
* And No Flying Peanuts either...

At least u big fish big meat more than me. Hahhahah.. I seldom eat out leh, not like u all :D

Hahhaha, u even can remember which plates are from which eating outlet? LOL... Yeah, it's Sunday, that's why it's full house. Well, other normal days i'm working mah, so won't have time to go for dim sum in the morning.

All those events happened not in a day leh. It's over the weekends ;)
I will go to KL again in September, but unsure of the date yet. Either early or end of September loh..

yes, very familiar indeed.
just tat everyone put it in a different way, and i did the round up summary :D

See u in Penang then :)

Chen said...

Coz we live to eat mah, not eat to live. This is the modern life philosophy. Very true, right? Hhahahha..

When u wanna come Penang? We can go jalan-jalan cari makan then :D

I haven't have my dinner too leh.
Didn't have breakfast today. Eat brunch instead. Now i hungry liao...

Who bankrupt ah?
The one who lost in Mono-The-Poly game ah? hahahha..

Chen said...

bibik nyonya,
Ah Boy is indeed a cute & adorable doggy. He is cheeky at times too.
And his big round eyes, and the pathetic look - the usual trick he plays when he wanna begs for food.. LOL

bibi cletus,
Thanks for dropping by. Hope u enjoy your visit here.

Will visit your blog soon. Hope u have a wonderful week :)

Yeah, her feet and his hand, not the other way round. Kkkk...

now looking back at the photo, i feel like eating the longkang laksa again. Really lao hao sui leh..

Did u bring durian when u visited ECL? Kkkkkk...

Chen said...

Different shops or restaurants use different methods to serve dim sum. Some uses plates, some uses metal container, some uses bamboo basket.
I dunno what is the reason behind ah. I just hantam the dim sum only :P

depends on when u wanna come to Penang loh. Ah Boy awaiting u with BBB leh. Hahahahhha...

i'm still waiting..
waiting, waiting, waiting..
bila u nak mari Penang jek? :P

Shhhhhhhh... don't laff at Angel lah. Later she angeri then i dunno liao (transform from Angel to Anger) :P Kkkkkkk...

Besides being hugged tight-tight, Ah Boy wants food and massage too :P

cooknengr said...

Would have loved tickling ECL's toes.

And dun forget to dive in the laksa and dim sum.

Good huh lidat, can get full by just looking at the picture. Save $$ to buy food liao.

Hopefully u won't put on weight by just looking at the picture leh. Hahahahahha..
