One of the items from the menu I enjoyed most is the Chicken Chop. Its crispy and non-oily based served with mashed potato and some gravy. photo DSC_0072_zps22a9b584.jpg

At the moment, Route 9 is having set lunch on promo. There are a total of 11 choices for our 3 course set lunch served with drinks and Soup of the Day from RM10.90 [Available on weekdays from 11am till 3pm] photo DSC_0043_zps59b97e68.jpg

Tender Chicken Skewer is one of my favourite too which tastes a little like satay. photo DSC_0047_zps64c7a24b.jpg photo DSC_0045_zpsc1fd14f6.jpg

… and after such a heavy meal, I would appreciate dessert :) Affogato was served but I would say it tasted a little plain. photo DSC_0096_zps44077941.jpg photo DSC_0079_zpsdeb63b5d.jpg photo DSC_0091_zps90d945f8.jpg

As an overall, I kinda like the ambiance and its a good place to chill or for private events to be held.

Oh yes, so I was back in Penang for a week on a business trip. Many thought I was posting #throwback pictures, in fact those were real time pictures posted at that point of time. Despite the main reason I got back (which was work related), it was a meaningful trip for being able to meet half of the people on this beautiful island. LOL. I’m definitely exaggerating here but yes, I have never met so many people in my previous trips. Walking into the company is like a fashionista catwalk meet & greet session. Okay, that’s another level of exaggeration.

It was a bliss! For the first time, I felt so grateful for being able to drive to work and not complaint about the jam! Penang is a natural healer. She manages to put a smile on my face unknowingly when I was on my way to work.

Its just as pretty as always. Spent some time in the weekend to roam around by myself, something I often do back then just to spend some lone time.

 Also, I feel that you gotta risk when you live in Penang. LOL! photo IMG-20140928-WA0031_zpsef73a0a1.jpg

Of all things, I still heart this island!
