Happy 2009!

Photobucket

Hi Everyone! I am back after a long holiday break. It was a very enjoyable and relaxing holiday for both my son and myself. I didn't cook at all during this period. I am so glad that my son loves all my mum's cooking especially her "char siew" (barbeque) chicken.

My hubby joined us towards end of December. He had not been to Penang for 2 years. Therefore, both of us launched a crazy food hunt to solve his "cravings". At the end, we felt so quilty for overstuffing our stomaches with all the "sinful" food. As expected, our weights had gone upwards. :( . Needless to say, my new year resolution is ........... (Hehehe! I bet you know, right?)

After the holiday, there are millions of outstanding matters that I need to attend - unpacking, washing, cleaning, ironing, cooking etc etc. As Chinese New Year is approaching, I also have to do my spring cleaning. A super duper busy schedule to kick start my 2009 year. I will share with you some food photos I took in my next posting.

Below are some photos I snapped for fun:

Hi Everyone,
Nice to hear from you again! Thank you so much for your support and kind words!!! *O*

Hi Sharon,
Tks for dropping by and glad that u luv the pancakes. ;)

Hi Piggy,
Usually during CNY, many shops will be closed. Otherwise, there will be very long queue and the hawkers will increase their price. Anyway, I hope you will have a yummilicious food adventure during this coming CNY!

Hi Malaysian Food Cuisine Blog,
Sure! Tks for the link! I had put yours too. ;)


Hi Beachlover,
It is sad that Komtar is a very run-down building now. I heard that the local govt is going to revive this place. What? U took bus in Penang? I have not been taking a bus there for more than 2 decade! Hehehe!

Hi Tin,
If u like these "postcards", give me ur address, I will send them to u. Hehehe! Tks for your compliment. ;)
