Delicious @ Straits Quay

Opened in May 2011, Delicious is a café located at one corner of the Strait Quay's dock in Penang.

By the way, it's Joling's 22nd birthday and together with her three buddies, we had a very late dinner over there.

I can say that it's a costly place to dine in for ordinary people.

Five of us waited for quite a moment as it was like fully seated - a good reason to start camwhoring...

After we're seated, we checked out the menu and wow, it's amazing to find that there's no pictures of food in a restaurant menu.

Seriously Delicious Cheeseburger served with Shoestring Fries (RM24.90) ★★★★☆

Four Cheese Macaroni (RM21.90) ★★★★☆

Marmalade Bread & Butter Pudding with Custard Sauce (RM10.90) ★★☆☆☆

Macadamia Cheesecake topped with Crunchy Macadamia Nut Brittle & Caramel (RM13.90) ★★★★☆

Mascarpone Pesto Chicken served with Fried Potatoes & Asparagus (RM39.90) ★★★☆☆

English Fish & Chips served with Homemade Tartare Sauce & Garden Greens (RM29.90) ★★★★☆

Happy birthday dear dear! ❤❤

The Manhattan Fish Market

I finally escaped from Vacation Internship Programme and got back to Penang. It's another hang out with Joling at Queensbay Mall that resembled all the sweet memories.

She suggested The Manhattan Fish Market for dinner because of this promotional deal. RM10 nett per set for students. Cheap 到瘋 sia!

Everytime when student card is to be shown, I got this scenario went through my mind:
"Eh, tunggu kejap! Ini sekolah mana, ha? NUS... tak pernah dengar pun!" ^^

Seafood 101

All-star Fish 'n Chips


In conclusion, it's worth the money (RM10 per set in Manhattan in this era) and students do have lots of privileges. Yeah!

Singapore Botanic Gardens

It's a short weekend trip on a Sunday, when Alex, Emilia and I visited the Singapore Botanic Gardens.

At the entrance opposite to Gleneagles Hospital, where I underwent DALK surgery.

Along the Swan Lake


Ah... A nice place to destress...

Ginger Garden... Gingy's hometown?

We spotted somebody taking bridal photoshoots in front of a small waterfall, how lovely...
But why did the bridegroom show that stupid face? -_-lll

The National Orchid Garden
On that day, the admission is free for student, so 3 of us entered without paying.
I'm not sure that whether this is whole year long or for some particular periods.

Our one and only group photo, taken by a foreign tourist in return.

Don't the orchids look like added photo frames? Haha...

The Coolhouse. Let's just hide inside and enjoy the air-con.

We could have had a picnic there, but sadly we didn't bring any food.

It's 6pm and it's about time to leave. We didn't manage to walk the entire garden though.
That was a quite tiring but nice trip - at least we got to see greeneries (really good for our eyes) and relax ourselves as 3 of us were doing internship.
