After having our expensive Americian breakfast at Dean & Deluca (click here)  as we were still early to head for our shopping, then Goft suggested to enjoy Bangkok most famous river cruise at Chao Praya River that transport alot people across or along the river for work or to another tourist destination.

Reading some website, this river is one of a legendary river which rate as ‘Venice of the East’ that makes it one of a good way to explore Bangkok City by boat service along the river.

river (1)

So we took Sky Train from our hotel and stop at this Station called Saphan Taksin

river (2)

Whereby at the jetty name called Sathorn. As this place is near to alot of hotel, you can see alot of tourist flocking this area to take this boat ride.

river (3)

There are 3 types of service available which is one are meant for tourist, and comes with English speaker on board to explain for you where are you heading and some history of the places that you are stopping, which are more meant for tourist, best if you plan to do hopping around, you can get their One Day Pass at only 150Bhat which is more worth it compare to pay for single stop.

Then there are a few other types of services that you can rent for private use, with speed boat that jet up and down pretty quickly at different rates which of course more expensive.

Or lastly, if you like free and easy, can be like us because I have my friend as she introduce all the places for us, we took the PUBLIC boat that cost very little per person, if I am not mistaken is around 30-50 bhat per stop.

for more info and services you can check out this website i found out: http://bangkok.sawadee.com/canals.htm

river (4)

Our Jaw Drop when we saw the colour of the river as its like ‘Teh Tarik Kau Kau’ colour. So brownish and the river is flowing so fast. We were wondering if we ever fell into the river, will we drown and I think can easily reach another jetty by its strong fast current.

As for the lovely weather today as its so sunny and what ever pic I took just makes it so sharp. . .

river (5)

river (6)

One thing I like about the public boat is that, they use conductor which I have not seen a conductor for very long time already with this manual and coin ticketing system by this lady.

river (7)

You pay her, then she will tear you a ticket. . . must keep the ticket as on and off they will do spot check as to ensure all on board paid for their ride. If not you will be thrown out by the boat man into the river (just joking) as my friend told me there are quite alot people trying to avoid paying.

river (8)

 

river (9)

As this is how pack the public boat is and the lady shout at us at Thai language where most of us do not understand cuz on that day on our ride, there are quite a lot tourist and my friend told me, if you were to ride on public boat, the CONS are you cannot just stand and park there at the nice window view, as you are obstructing other public people coming in. So once you have been shove into the middle area like where I took my picture, you will miss out all the nice scenery.

river (10)

Then me taking some landscape shot as along the river.

river (11)

This is how the speed boat looks like as they are up to hire anytime.

river (12)

river (13)

So public ride will stop most of the available stop for people hopping in and out.

river (14)

Then if you stay a hotel at the river bank, they have their own boat services for you to get you across or you can arrange with the hotel which area you want to head to, then they will arrange with the boatman to transport you to that location. Most of the hotel along this river bank are 4-5 star hotel.

river (15)

river (16)

river (17)

river (18)

There are even some people live at the river bank .. .

river (19)

 This is how strong and fast the current is for that day.

river (21)

As we had too heavy breakfast and some of our food could not finish, then not to waste it, we were brought to this jetty, TEWET to feed the fish, as this jetty is also famous for one of the superstitious believe. If you have bad luck or omen, like bad health, need more wealth, then some of the locals head here to purchase some of the creature then given a piece of paper and pray according ly, lastly release it back to real life, to make it smooth ahead for future.

river (28)

river (22)

some of the locals selling bread and its very cheap to buy one big bag, to feed the fish.

river (23)

For us, the fish is lucky today as we are feeding them with our left over high class breakfast. 😀

river (24)

I can tell, you the fish here are big! The locals also believe another thing that, if you do catch fish nearby the temple along this river, you will be curse, either fall sick or something bad will happen to you.

river (25)

river (26)

 this is one of the boat transport offer by the hotels.

river (27)

river (29)

As you walk further up a bit then you will get to see the locals selling tortoise, eel, birds and a few more other things as it depends on what you want to wish for then they prepare what creature for you to release.

river (30)

while waiting for our boat to come, then I get a chance to see what are the locals actually doing.

river (31)

As they do a praying first by saying in their heart with the words from the paper, then next they just pour it to the river and let the bad thing wash away.

If I do say anything wrong, please do correct me. Thank you.

river (32)

As we were heading back to our destination where we board on our boat, now we see another side of the river which is more interesting this round . . .

river (33)

If you do  have time, visit this temple which is made of porcelain if I am not mistaken.

river (34)

river (35)

To spend some sightseeing and stopping by a few stops, I would suggest that you will need to spend about half a day here to enjoy the fullest and make use of the river.

river (36)

Time is just perfect when we reach back the jetty to start our shopping galore at Bangkok. Catch up next post for shopping area in Bangkok.

Just right before I went back to Penang for my friends wedding 2 weeks ago, few days before that I received an email from my ex-colleague that some one mention in a blog that a blogger mention Pulau Aman served nice fresh Prawn Mee aka Mee Udang in Malay, then as I am excited and decided to go explore this round, and to double confirm I went Google up about this place, surprisingly quite a number of bloggers been before since as early as 2008. Then I told him I am going during Raya Break, then he said, u sot liau..Raya who opening for you including Ramadan? I was like super disappointed but yet lucky to go back early and just ngam ngam a day before bulan puasa start.

In adventurous mode, so went back to Penang can call my best friend and propose this and timing is so ngam that they also do plan to go to this island which is just perfect. Woke up early on Sunday morning look at Google Map that to travel there is very straight forward. Just head towards KL bound highway then exit at BATU KAWAN exit, –> find Batu Kawan Stadium then just head alllllll the way straight only till and turn left at a junction. It is just about 30-45 minutes from Penang island.

 

Pulau Aman (1)

 Then you will reach this place with a huge carpark and we are amaze with one thing.

Pulau Aman (2)

Hidden deep inside here and a beautiful future mini port that just build up which I believe going to host some cafes or restaurant that over look the sea and Penang Bridge, shows that there are quite alot of crowds coming here.

Pulau Aman (3)

You can just park your car anywhere as you can find a spot and you will be charge RM5 which certainly alot more expensive compare to the ones in Penang if you consider this kind of place. . I guess its tourist attraction then.

Pulau Aman (4)

Then you will see this mini jetty that will take us to the opposite island which is known as Pulau Aman.

Pulau Aman (5)

This is the list of schedule and rates to take us over the other island as according to the boatman or the ‘penjaga’ there are no specific pick up or departure time. Just come to this jetty and just wait for the boat as they charge RM6 for 2 ways which is quite reasonable.

Note: the boat start as early as 8am (depends on luck as official start around 9am then last boat depart from the island back to the jetty is 5.30pm). IF you cant get back there are damm less accommodation and I would just wish you good luck in getting back.

Pulau Aman (6)

 my 2 best friend which is the 2 siau poh’s . .Collen and Nancy and cam whore abit while waiting for our boat ride.

Pulau Aman (7)

 Yayyy… finally our small mini wooden boat had is coming with the slow sound of engine ‘tutt ttuttt tutttt tutttttt’

 

Pulau Aman (8)

This is how small the boat is and maximum I think can transport around 25 pax.

Pulau Aman (9)

This is how small and low the boat is and I think I stretch my hand out I can touch the sea water already.

Pulau Aman (10)

 This is what I mean small boat and quite a lot people purposely travel there for fishing.

Pulau Aman (11)

 about 10 minutes slow boat ride we finally approaching Pulau Aman. Pulau Aman which is actually a small fishing village.

Pulau Aman (12)

Pulau Aman (13)

Pulau Aman (14)

Pulau Aman (15)

 

Pulau Aman (16)

 We are surprise to see here got a map to tell us where we are and what do they have, and best of all, we do not know where the restaurant is located. The island seems small in this map and if to walk, will take quite a while. Then something struck our mind, just follow where everyone is going, you wont be wrong. Either ended up in 2 places, fishing area or the restaurant.

Pulau Aman (17)

 this is what they have in the island for tourist attraction . . at this junction we took a turn on LEFT where everyone is walking.

Pulau Aman (18)

 they have road names tooo!

Pulau Aman (19)

See, I told you wont be wrong as its just a few steps a way from the Pulau Aman Jetty that you turn left at the T-junction then you will reach this RESTAURANT TERAPUNG PULAU AMAN.

Pulau Aman (20)

As I mention here is a fishing village and according to a few blogger you can grab mantis prawn and crab at a cheap rate. SO you choose what are the seafood you want then you bring the pale to the restaurant and let them know that you want them to help you cook.

Pulau Aman (21)

For being a virgin in this area, we do not know the rate of it and order Mantis Prawn and just 4 pcs cost us RM89 I was like .. kena chop already . . Then ask the other customer around there cuz I saw a big group of teenagers and ask how much is their price and a table sit next to us how much was theirs. Apparently there are 3 rates:

Small medium Size: RM50-RM60 per KG (recommended this size)

Medium Big Size : RM60-RM75 per KG

BIG SIZE : RM 85 above per KG

Please be remember to ASK the price and do not go on Sunday as very less boatman went out to sea to catch fish or anything,

Pulau Aman (22)

As many bloggers mention the signature dish here is Mee Udang, so that must not be miss and we order the rest of it. What is the different between Biasa (Normal) and special, as the difference is less prawns and more prawns. So I would advice just try on their BIASA can already.

Pulau Aman (23)

It was just 10.30am in the morning and its nearly full already.

Pulau Aman (24)

Here comes our order which is the signature dish of the restaurant known as Mee Udang / Prawn Mee malay version. I would say, the soup is not bad as you can taste from the sweetness from the fresh prawns and you just have to squeeze the lime to make it taste a bit sour. RM 6

Pulau Aman (28)

Pulau Aman (25)

Nasi Goreng Udang turns out to be quite good too, that many stores that I have tried in KL on the road side is not as good as this @ RM6

Pulau Aman (26)

Bihun Udang @ RM 6 that this plate certainly beats alot of malay stores out there which is quite fried quite fragrant.

Pulau Aman (27)

 Mee Goreng Udang @ RM 6

Pulau Aman (29)

 Koey Teow Soup Udang @ RM 6

Pulau Aman (30)

 Our Giant mantis prawn and flower crab. The Auntie Charge ADDITONAL RM5 jus to steam on the seafood.

Pulau Aman (31)

Pulau Aman (32)

 This is how giant our mantis prawn is and there is one even longer than Nancy’s face

Pulau Aman (33)

One of the reason not to order big mantis prawn is hard to peel the skin off as its shell is filled with a bit of torn and if you do not handle it properly while cutting you might hurt yourself. So the simple step for me that how I usually do it is

1) Cut the head off

2) cut all the legs

3) cut the side shell

4) just peel from the tail up to the front and just becarefull.

Pulau Aman (34)

After eating we had a short stroll to explore around what to see in this area and reliase that there is a Telaga Emas to see ( Gold Well) then walk for 10 minutes we find that its quite far and decided to turn around and also the area and the area is very Kampung and resides mostly malay here.

Pulau Aman (35)

Then I think there is a chalet here just 4 units. Then we head back to jetty and return. IF you ask me would I return, I would say yes, just for fun . . I will return again another round during Raya Week as the uncle said he will be opening.

What to order – Mee Udang and you can try out the Prawn Mantis small size.

Note: last boat is at 5.30pm

I used to come to QE2 to hang out with my friends for many occasion and pass by this restaurant many times . .  Never did I know that, my last visit back to Penang, my dad brought me to Hai Nan Town for lunch, that I just got to know is one of his favourite restaurant, partly because they served Hainanese cuisine.

Hai Nan Town Restaurant is situated next to Penang Jetty which can be easily located as it can be consider a building by itself and also a famous spot for alot photographer to do photoshoot here.

If you come at night, you will enjoy a the wonderfull scenery facing the jetty with sea breeze.

Usually I definately prefer my Lohbak to be in Pork Version especially when I am in Penang, then Chicken Lorbak in here is pretty good too, by using strips of chicken that cook along with ‘ngor hiang’ with skin fried till crips.   RM 10.50

Otak – Otak was normal as I have eaten better ones @ RM 3

Kacang Botol fried with samble and pranws is a dish to consider to order, fried evenly and its crips each of it. .  RM 12

Hainanese Lamb is my dad’s favourite, because it was cook quite soupy and the lamb lamb taste is very mild that suits my sister also, lamb was cook till very soft n the soup was aromatic with the lamb taste, to me it would taste a bit more nice if the lamb taste is abit stronger @ RM 22

Yam Duck base is a bit milky which filled with yam taste which is another good dish to consider @ RM 24

Curry Fish , quite sour in the curry n spicy which is just nice, fish was fresh as the meat is soft @ RM 66

My family enjoy the meal here. . . and ambiance is nice especially for family meal  and this restaurant is a Halal Restaurant. . .

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.

Then this cute kid went into the water and with a look of scared of the cold water, with his dad as he was scared then the dad persuaing him to walk around.

Rapid Penang Bus Route No: U201 / U203 / U204 / U206 / U502

Being a Penang person, I have never really know that Penang actually do offer a lot of great food as I have written and known more of KL food rather than Penang not until recently CK introduce us this classic and wonderful place which is hidden in this very Tan Jetty.

I have always thought that this kind of place would be the residence area and also famous for wedding photography but just greatly discover that hidden a home cook Thai authentic flavour.

Thai Good

Thai Good (2)

You need to walk through this very small wooden bridge that used by the residence on bicycle, motorbike or on foot to reach their home.

Thai Good (3)

You just have to keep walking till the very last house of this stretch of the house.

Thai Good (4)

Its low tide when we reach there, and can you just imagine the heat and no sea wind during that time, can just melt.

Thai Good (6)

Till you reach this fence wooden house and my brother is introducing you the very authentic home cook thai food is discovered.

Not only about the food, is about the environment, as you are seated above the wooden house that build on the sea yet you get to enjoy your meal by overlooking the sea and smell the salty sea water and if its windy, would be even lagi perfect.

Thai Good (7)

This is all the houses in this area are build up.

Thai Good (8)

Thai Good (9)

Thai Good (10)

Thai Good (11)

After meal, you can just down on the bridge to smoke and enjoy the scenery. A great place for photoshoot too~

Thai Good (12)

Thai Good (13)

Very next to the restaurant there is a Mini Temple yet hidden this very ‘Loh Bak’ stall that is quite famous with its local residence and the boss said that, they do cater for events too but only supplying loh bak. The loh bak is also one of the best as it was introduce by my friend few years ago during tea time.

The loh bak is filled with mince meat and spices added in to bring up the aroma of the meat yet it was fried in high temperature to get the crispiness of the skin and preserve the soft meat in it, with their very own chili sauce is just irresistible. Besides that, I love their ‘Cucuk Udang’ too, as it was fried crispy on the edge with flour and prawn is soft inside after fried on it. One word, good~ It was finish within seconds. RM1 for loh bak and RM 0.70 for ‘cucuk udang’ (if not mistaken)

Thai Good (14)

After chatting and laughing, we kick start our meal with ‘Fish Cake’ RM1.20 per piece. Looks simple but very solid on ingredient and dip with the thai chili sauce is just perfect~

Thai Good (15)

To open up our appetite, ‘Kerabu Mango’ is one of the choice must not miss for thai food. With the fine cut of cucumber, mango, carrot and top with bbq cuttlefish and added on with the dressing is will just make your taste bud sensitive with the well balance of sweet, sour, sweet and spicy.

Thai Good (16)

‘Thai Holy Basil Rice’ is next on the hit list. Something which is out of my expectation that something simple that had been cook so flavorful, basil leave did not overpower the chicken yet the chili padi added on make the spiciness level there but the catch is, do not underestimate it, as the first few bite it taste very good and upcoming bite the spiciness just shoot up and make us take a lot of water from the fridge. RM 4

Thai Good (17)

‘Deep fried fish’ fried with curry and curry leaves till dry and the curry taste stick on the crispy fish yet when eat it, its very flavorful. . Just cant stop eating.

Thai Good (18)

‘Belacan Fried Rice’ that top with sour mango slices, fried omelet, chili padi and balacan fragrance of the rice is detected. Another way to eat it, you can mix everything and eat it, will just make your sweat come out instantly. RM4

Thai Good (19)

‘Spicy Petai Chicken’ as I am not a big fan of petai but it was fried till the level I enjoy eating it. Dry curry sambal stir fried with big fresh prawns is just so good to eat it with a bowl of white rice.

Thai Good (20)

‘Tom Yam Fried Rice’ nothing special about it, as I have had better ones before. RM4

I just love the taste of ‘Clear Seafood Tom Yam Soup’ as this is how the authentic flavor need to be, sourish and spicy with combination of the seafood ingredient just makes us want to have more than a bowl. From RM6

‘Pad Thai’ is abit sweet and moist as I prefer mine to be spicy and dry.

‘Fried Kang Kung’ is not bad, and to go along with beer is just the right choice.

If you are looking for cheap and authentic Thai food, surely this is the place that I am highly recommending if you can withstand the heat and the spiciness.
