Home Dine Out Hawker Half Day Trip to Penang Hill (Bukit Bendera), Penang

 

Fresh Sashimi | Hypermarket Japan

I have just passed my first weekend in Japan. This time I am in Osaka. For my first shopping, I bought a lot of foods, not for one day, but for one week. Since this time I will at here for only 3 weeks, so I bought some to bring back to Malaysia too. On Sunday, I bought a pack of sashimi for my dinner. 6 types of sashimi in a box. Although it is from hyper market, but all are very fresh. I like salmon and prawn the most. Just now, I tried the pre-pack sesame cold noodle. During summer, they have different kinds of cold noodle. This cold noodle is instant pack that I bought from same hyper market. Taste not bad too. Others food that I bought include can coffee, yakult, biscuits, egg pudding that I like so much, fruit juice, milk tea that I miss so much, varient kinds of pocky and more. Caramel egg pudding I wish I can go for next shopping soon so that I can grab for more foods! Japan foods, I miss you so much!!!

 

Peach Cheesecake | Frozen Cheesecake

Thank God that things happening around is making my life more meaningful. The events that Japanese organize, places that I can visit during weekend and most important is the FOOD that I can eat here.  

 

Durian Butter Cake Recipe

I always wanted to bake something with durian since few years ago. Due to some reasons, I was not able to fulfill my dream. This year, I have try with durian butter cake. 

 

Steamed Caramel Banana Cake Recipe

I have overcome another fear on handling caramel last weekend. This steamed caramel banana cake gave me a good practice on cooking caramel as well as steaming a cake. I always afraid the caramel will stick on my pan when it turn brown, but thank God that I have successfully cook it nicely and no burning sugar stick on my pan. Since it is a steamed cake, it's texture is similar to huat kuih/fatt koh发糕. If make it into cupcake, it is just like huat kuih发糕. When my mom ate this, she said it is malai ko马来糕. With her comment, she gave me inspiration to bake malai ko next time.

PgHill_6This is the first time we went to Penang Hill after visited there since years ago. In my mind, Bukit Bendera is a cool place, where you can go away from super hot Penang island. Also, being prepared that there is "nothing" at the top hill. With this mindset, I prepared a jacket, pizza and some light foods for the trip.


We went in early morning on last Sunday morning, arrived there at about 8.15am. After park our car at their carpark (RM3 per entry), we went to buy ticket. Ticket charge for adult is RM8 per person, if you show your Malaysia identity card to them (child is RM4). By the time we buy the ticket, there is no body in the queue, so we thought the visitor must be very few.

Walk way from carpark to ticket counter

After that, we went to ride on the train, the train straight arrived at the top hill. Thinking back the old train, visitors need to walk out to change train on half way. The train speed is faster compare to old train too.

When we arrived at top hill, we planned to have breakfast at David Brown's restaurant. But they do not get ready on set meal yet, with only cakes and light foods available. The waitress told us there is a food court, so we had our breakfast there.

Surprisingly, food court was quite crowded, many cyclist had their breakfast there. The food is at average price, which we think are quite reasonable at tourism place.

We ordered a plate of Char Koay Teow (RM5) and a plate of Mee Kung Fu (RM6). Food taste is quite good. A cup of coffee (RM2) and Fresh Cocoa juice (RM6). Other foods are Laksa, Nasi Lemak, Fried Rice, Koay Tiao Soup, Bakery, Satay and many more. For drink, they have different kind of fresh juice, Ice Kacang, Fruit Ice and etc.

The food court was built with wooden style, which give you a relaxing and comfort environment.

After breakfast, we walked around the place, and return home before 12pm. There is nothing much at the top hill but compare with N years ago, many things are actually get improved such as food court, cleanliness of the place, train, toilet and of course, number of visitors have increase greatly.

At the end, we took back home our pizza. I also do not wear on my jacket at all as the weather is not cold, just a little cooling.

We ride on "roller coaster" from top hill to bottom hill and end our half day trip. (There is a group of people shouting like riding on roller coaster on our way back, the train speed is quite fast and imagine you are standing at the front part of the train, "roll" down at fast speed.)

The visitors were geting more and more crowded by the time we returned home. So, go early to avoid long queue!
