It had been a long long time since I visited this island Pangkor Island Beach Resort , as I still remember that when I was kid that my dad bring me to this island, when I landed at the dock, I stare at the sea water and I can see many school of fish swimming around the area but now it had change as I went to another jetty. This island Pulau Pangkor, famously known as one of the jewels in the crown  of west coast peninsular Malaysia, that offers travelers the ultimate tranquil gatewa from the hustle and bustle of city life which is located 2 and half hours drive from Kuala Lumpur. To get here, travellers can purchase a direct bus ticket from Bukit Jalil Bus Station (a temporary station) with the price from RM27-RM35 per way but bring a neck pillow as it depends on driver that, it can be a painful ride as it took us about 5 hours to reach here.

*Dissapointing Fact:
During the trip, I realise that we are not the only people that going there as on that day, half of the bus were filled with international travellers from HK and Aus. As approching to the destination, as a Malaysians, I am VERY dissapointed with that xx bus comany driver of his attitude towards the tourist, or maybe he did not know that they were from international as one of the lady went to ask the driver are we reaching soon, and the replied from the bus driver ‘GOING TO REACH SOON! Can you please SIT down!’, 15 minutes later, The Aus couple were getting very uncomfortable as the journey on that day took us very long, then the guy went to ask the driver by ‘How Long does it takes us to reach there? The bus driver replied ’30minutes!!!!!!!’ he was like near yelling  and I was shocked~ This is how you treat people? I was like keep shaking my head . . .. . Well, what the hell…

Now I get a chance to come here again, with all thanks to Ee Lune for helping me to arrange this wonderfull trip, as I was send here by her to do some photoshoot for a resort. The main shooting of the resort is to help to capture children friendly environment and facilities and other nice facilities of the resort.

When I see the ferry, instantly I think of those ferry that took us to Langkawi, as these are the types of ferry that going to transport us into the island. It takes about 30 minutes boat ride into the main town of Pulau Pangkor.

After a great wonderfull shot at this resort, I could not thank more again to Ee Lune for this session.

For more info and rates of the resort, please cech out at: Pangkor Island Beach Resort

When we were down to the bottom of the hill and took a taxi to the ferry terminal and across the sea and again take taxi to reach this place. From the harbour to this place is around 15 mins walk but every 1 is just so tired and very very hungry for food so decided to take taxi.

 

 

 


Finally reach at this restaurant. Eat all you can!!! HKD 78.

When we walked into the restaurant the crowd is only a few tables, it was quite late already, our dinner suppose to be at 9pm but when we reach this restaurant , its already around 11pm. So, its consider our supper not dinner.

 

The place is rather comfortable, nicely decorated and proper steamboats not like the 1 at Sunway there with RM18 eat all you can steamboat.

We occupied 3 tables there~

The menu of selection which you can just pick and hantam which you think you want to eat. Only the menu on the left dark yellow and in the next page creamy yellow(veggie area). The rest you have to pay~

The captain introduce us the Ox Gatherings which he claims to be very nice, but I do not know what is that then my friends saying that the food there is enough to kill you. No need to order extra~

This is the spicy soup, as both of the soup were ordered by my friends. The color of it surely looks tempting and when it was at boiling point, I was eagerly trying out the taste and it sure taste very nice till I put a bowl for my self and salivate it till to the last drop.

The soup base is sweet with its aroma. Wonder what is the secret ingrediant~Highly Recommended

This is the ‘Pork Leg Soup’ which had been boil very long to get the aroma of it out.  When it was boil to the boiling point and the smell of its very nice soup aroma travels around makes you wanna grab your spoon and had the first taste of it.

 

The soup base is a highly recommended selection as the soup base is so sweet with the taste of the pork leg and veggie taste in it also. It is perfectly nice for those cant take the spicy 1.

The usual thing that we order for steamboat is of course from left to bottom : Needle mushroom, Tomato and ‘Fu Gua’

 

From right, top to bottom: taufu and noodle

This is not what our table pick was pass over by another table asking us to try. It’s a must try item.

 

After putting in and boil for a moment, I took the whole thing and bite, straight away burn my tongue as the juice in it spurt out. It is sweet with corn taste, the skin is so soft like as it is perfect to be eaten at the end of the meal. Of course do not put this inside the spicy soup which will spoil the taste~

The taufu’s

From left: Corn, Squid, Vegie, Cuttlefish, Beef Ball and Fish Dumpling.

One of the best in there is the homemade beef ball. The filling in it is compact and after boil, it is springy and chewy.

From left: Home made fish cake, the corn thingy, beef slices and pig skin.

The best of in here of course the corn as mention above and the best thing in this steamboat which must not miss is the beef slices. We sapu like 10 plate of it for my table. It slices is so thin till are able to dip for a while and eat it. Very nice beef taste and certainly with the fats of it, just perfect. To eat in the spicy soup taste the best! Highly recommended~

After pouring everything into the pot turns out to be like this.

This is for the clear soup. Everyone, please prepare your chopstick and prepare to eat!!!


Warning: This table every is like a dinasour and beware: ‘every 1 is very hungry’. Please do not come here, come at own risk!!

My table that nite were seated with 10 guys and 1 gurl. This people never stop eating for the whole 2 hours. What ever is pour in, it is gone within minutes. Just like people haven eat for 3 days and saw whatever food to fill in the stomach should be good.

To eat steamboat I am happy that I was seated with this dinasaour or cow’s(4 stomach) cuz you get to eat alot of choices and every 1 never complains about eat abit then full.

We kept eating till finishing the whole pot until I forgot that I put in the last order. Came again but every 1 just happily contribute a bit by eating it out..

At the end of the meal, all of us got shock that the gurl in my table had been eating non stop till the end and definately she eat like a dinasour. So much that you cannot imagine a thin like lidi can eat.

This is the end result of the night. SATISFIED!!!!~

By the end of the meal, we were paying around HKD150 which every 1 thought to be HKD78. When we look at the receipt, it is correct. How it calculate out:

Soup base HKD98 each
A bowl of soy sauce HKD10 each
Tea HKD10 each
Other Item……
so total add up around that figure.
 
 
The best part is a small plate of soy sauce HKD10. This is how kewl the hongkee doing business.
We came out, the weather is just nice, just cold breeze enough for us to slowly stroll back to our hotel. Take about 15 minutes walk and we seriously need that. Every one’s stomach is so geli, buldging out~
The best part is I thought this is a club and suprise me that I found it is a main entrance of a bank and the posters stick on the main entrace is all the clubbing event for the month.
