[PENANG]: Route 9, Bishop Street

Route 9 serves western dishes in the heart of Penang. They make life so much easier for the working adults especially and now being an option for diners. It is located next to Goh Kaki along Bishop Street, easily spotted too. photo DSC_0078_zps0354bb55.jpg

Hence, I would consider myself lucky for being able to visit Route 9 for dinner! photo DSC_0093_zpsb881ae48.jpg photo DSC_0048_zps69a3bece.jpg

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.

PENANG

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.

Lovely sights in Penang!

 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!

[SINGAPORE] Udders Ice Cream

Cravings can sometimes turn viral. Just like how ice cream makes waffles to perfection. Udders serves various flavours which makes me wanting to try every flavour I saw. A bit of every but its just too much :( I can only opt to try them some other time.

 photo 20140712_165739_zpsa61f7ad2.jpg

Sweet tooth easing for desserts. I am always a dessert person. The ice cream served is creamy and its something which you do not need a reason for consuming ;P

Earth Hour takes place from 8.30pm for an hour and its an annual event now. This year, WWF-Singapore announced that Singapore has broken its Earth Hour 2013 record of 183 organisations ahead of this year’s event with over 350 organisations planning to switch off to mark their commitment to save the planet!

WWF-Singapore urges people to ‘Use Your Power’ to drive positive change for the environment. Now, you too can be a superhero for the planet by pledging to take action and commit to one or more than the 4 simple acts at http://earthhour.wwf.sg:

  • Turn air-conditioning up by one degree
  • Switch to LED lighting
  • Use fewer plastic bags
  • Take shorter showers

The Energy Floors – a dance mat for the public to dance on the colourful Energy Floors which converts kinetic energy from their footwork into electricity. In short, this platform is able to generate energy when people steps on it. photo 20140329_194235_zps9eb20295.jpg photo DSC_0751_zps0fcd018c.jpg
