Next destination is this place where no doubt that recently Penang Laksa had been in the list of world top 10 food that must eat which I am surely proud off and many of my friends that come Penang the first thing they mention is they want to eat Asam Laksa.

I was recently introduce to this stall by my friend that this is another new joint that I found that served good laksa as I find that the one at Ayer Itam Market is very commercialise and I do not really like the taste of it. I find that this taste much better.

This few hawker stalls is located at the round about of Ayer Itam Junction and now it had attracted many other local tourist as when I was there, alot people speak cantonese in the area.

This is one fine bowl of laksa that comes with a lot of mixture of vegetable such as finely sliced vegetables including onions, cucumber, red chillis, pineapple, lettuce, mint and pink bunga kantan then shower a few rounds with sour and and a bit spicy soup base, also a spoonfull of ‘Heh Koh’ (prawn paste). RM3.50

laksa

The noodle is silky smooth and slurp it all the way into my mouth, texture of it a bit chewy that comes to my liking. Soup base is one of my prefered choice as it cook along with fish meat that had been smash and every sip I can bite some of the fish meat. It is sour and spicy enough that can satisfy my crave.

NED_6509.0_resize

Next stall that is quite famous among there is this Duck Meat Koey Teow Soup that the soup is very aromatic with its well cook soup base with duck bone, pork bone and a few other ingredients that make it sweet, served along with duck meat and some pork lard to make it superb in taste. RM 3.50

NED_6510_resize

Penang Rojak is also another dish that you must have which is a mixture of fruits and mix with prawn paste. This is not the best stall and find that the prawn paste is quite salty and its expensive as for this small portion its RM4.

Last weekend when I went back to Penang, I do not feel that I am original from Penang. Ken brought all of us for a food hunt and street photography equip myself with a camera and went to all the food places I have not went before. I thought of doing it a random post and a new discovery place for me that must share with all of you. One of them is  Ais Tingkap.

 It was hot sunny afternoon and Ken decided to bring us for a refreshment break as most of us would definitely know Penang Famous Cendol located at Penang Road but another hidden gem which is hidden at Lebuh Tamil (a road next to it) which is called Ais Tingkap (Window Sherbet) operating with other stalls, the English name got translate by a foreign guy. The name is very catchy and I asked the guy why is the stall called Ais Tingkap and the Indians told me that it was first operate by his grandfather way back in the 1930’s. He serve the drink behind a glass panel and people came by and make a take away taking through the window and that is how the name originate from. Now the grandson had taken it over.

Then I got to know that Chinese we do have Leong Cha to cool our body down and for Indians they do have this to cool their body down with the ingredient mixing in it.

ais tingkap (3)

Now this stall is operate by his grandson, and this is the only place where you can find Ais Tingkap in Malaysia. Its nice to see and nice to drink, but when you see the preparation you will be amaze how many ingredients are added in.

A complete version of Ais Tingkap for ONLY RM1.20 that seriously caught me by suprise as it involves so many steps and I thought it would cost at least RM2, for big packet it is only RM1.50.

ais tingkap (13)

The taste is OMG. Very cooling with the shaved ice that melts into our mouth, fragrant with rosy flavor and the taste is very unique by itself, every taste we sip get to suck on the getah anggur and the frog egg. In this hot weather, we are definitely enjoying yourselves over this little glass of drink. With me, Bernice, my brother and the rest . . . Great Stopover! or I would say a new Recommended place by me if you were to go by Penang.

One of the thing that I have been asking around from my Malay friends and colleague are which pasar ramahdan is recommended to go? There are a few actually with like of Kelana Jaya, Taman Tun Dr.Ismail (TTDI) Pasar Ramahdan 2010 and one of the most highly recommended was Taman Melawati but then for this round, we, me, Ken and Andrew decided to make our first street photography and food hunt at TTDI.

We reach the place pretty early around 3pm and there are still some stalls setting up but most of them are already selling like hot cakes. One of the reason that the residence are unhappy about this about the traffic is cannot deny that this TTDI Pasar Ramahdan is quite impressive with its size of the bazaar is big, circulating the main middle area of shop houses.  It will be start off with the stretch in front Popeye towards KFC and to Shell end, more like a retangular shape. You Imagine yourself how big it is.

this post will be more on pictures on this lovely Pasar Ramahdan.

During Chinese New Year, Tiger Woohoo had mades its impact on our local film industry and had made a big buck after that, here comes another great local movie acted by a lot of local and international artist from Taiwan which is the latest film Ice Kacang Puppy Love. This film had made another huge impact on our local film industry which I totally feel it’s a great start to compete with Singapore and Taiwan. The quality and story line is there.

Since the opening last Thursday, its hard to get ticket for this movie, been either left front 2 rows or full house not until yesterday manage to get a good seats on the very last minute.

It is a great story that brings up a lot of childhood memories especially to guys and girls that had puppy love during teenage time and its about ah niu like a girl that unable him to express his love towards his childhood friend till they head off to pursue individual career, yet surprise ending too. Recommended local movie with laughter and love~

Ice Kacang Puppy Love

Those who say local movie is not in good quality with nice story line, just catch this one. A good exposure of our local movie quality and story line.

ps: i just like the names they used in the movie

— Tik Ching, Pass, Stamped —

Overall ratings 9/10, Great local show, Recommended~~~

— The movie rated by me is by my own personal preference. Watch it at your own risk —
