琴的人生观

光阴似水流…


许多人常会挂在嘴边,时间不留人, 要把握当时…
其实人,事,物,还不是随着时间在转变…
怎么,难道人类就真的只能专注于其中一样事物,就同时放弃了其它吗?
虽说,时间一溜走,想捉都捉不住…
对于人,事,物,都该抱着同样的心态, 错过了,一样就会没了…
无论是个小小的机会,错失了,哪怕会导致一辈子的遗憾…


人生是多么的化学,儿嬉 , 这一秒的我根本都无法预测下一秒会发生什么事…
所以我说,‘珍惜眼前人’… 这话的道理是挺重要的…


把自己限制在一个小框框里做决定是多么的可悲,看见短暂的当时及一双手数得完的树木, 却放弃了整个森林和美丽的天空…
往往等到发现错误时,那些云朵早已飘的很远…

就连告别的机会也没了…


每一天,离开这世界的朋友们多的恐怖… 我们是时候更珍惜身边的人,事,物,别让自己有半点遗憾的机会…


能付出的都尽力了… 要是得到的回应还是负面的… 还能安慰自己的说一句
“问心无愧"

HomeStay at Chew Jetty...

this was the very 1st time in mah-life..
and the very 1st time for my family too...
to go to Chew Jetty on 9th Jan, Chinese Lunar Calendar...
this day is very ' big ' for Hokkien...
consider as Hokkien's cny yeah...

due to the leaving of our beloved granny...
we do not get to celebrate this day for 3-y-e-a-r-s...
je's big gang of frens used to come to my house yearly...
to gamble and 'build-big-gold-mountain' together...

therefore, mummy suggested to go Chew Jetty and experience the 'happening' with penangites... ^^

we never attend before..
there was crazily crowded.. and happening..
the roads were blocked... and filled with peoples....
( my boss's fren even purposely drove down from kl just to experience-the-happening...)

my 1st time walking in Chew Jetty...
and we found this Homestay..
newly opened couple of weeks before CNY...

very gud idea of the owner...
she told me.. they bought this house several years ago...
planned for self-living...
sumhow, they just came up this idea 1 day...

the room is big and clean...

I couldn't remmeber the exact price... but should be around rm 130 +
this is the normal twin room...
with air-conditional and electric fan...

the master bed room is alot bigger...

the kitchen with full equipments...

the extra point is this balcony on the sea....

the owner even provided Barbeque pitt and fishing equipments...

for bbq... owner will prepare all the needing stuff and foods based on the headcount you provide...
what you need to do.. is just spare your tummy and pay for the bill...

outside of the homestay...
there is this path way out-to-the-sea....

I reckon this is a cool place to go with a bunch of buddies...
we're sick of having apartment stay in bt feringghi area...
here is sumwhat... new, fresh and different experience...

the master bed room...
could fit in 7-8 ppls no problem...
of course some will need to sleep on the floor...
as the room is really big...

Amelie Cafe @ Amenian Street

I've been looking for a little cafe in Georgetown for quite some times...
saw random photos in FB while viewing unknown-album...

by following my instinct, I insisted stewpig to bring me to this street.... Lebuh Amenian...
and here it is !

I found this little cafe... ^^
AMELIE CAFE

A cosy little cafe that owned by a lovely couple...
started business since 3 mths ago...
few shops down from Edelweiss Cafe... next to Cheah Kongsi...
a very small homey-cafe with only 2 tables, and a side row... at the moment...
they are currently sprucing up the first floor and plans are underway for an outdoor garden seating area which facing Cheah Kongsi...

with the eco-friendly concept... re-used and recycle materials of furnitures, decorations.. all handmade by the passionate owners...

~kimmiez-kind-of-place~ *winks~





I supposed all this menu were hand-drawn by the owner...
each menu has a different front and back cover...

they painted this corner of wall with black...
so to write down the Menu with chalks, changed daily~ *creative~


little shelf for books~

Range of coffee are available...
owner said : Hazelnut Latte is selling good...
but I grabbed the Capuccino and Stewpig had the Caffe Latte instead...

Breaky is available till 11.30 am...

Stewpig ordered this Small Breakfast... with a Rye Bread Toast, an egg ( with a choice of soft boil/ scramble or sunny top ), bacon slices and fruits...
rm 10.90


the slightly toasted Rye Bread is nice... strawberry jam with chunky strawberry is served too...


kimmie had the Homemade Yogurt with Granola and Fruits...
Granola of toasted oats, walnut, almond, cashew nuts and raisin...
Fruits - sweet and juicy watermelon, starfruits, apple, sweet pineapple and banana in slices...
rm 6.90

a healthy breaky makes kimmie happee~ :)

we ordered the Portabello Mushroom Soup for sharing...

the mushroom soup is really thick..
I supposed they blended the mushroom to cook this...
unlike the creamy types with strong flavour of Cream and Milk...

tiny but with full-equipments kitchen..
I feel kind of warmth with this area~ ^^



I heard the customer next table said that...
the pasta here is nice..
perhaps I would try it during my next visit... :)
I will definitely come here again..
I just like the atmosphere sumhow~ ^^

Edo Ichi Japanese Restaurant, Penang Plaza

once a year, 225 is approaching....
the big day of little Aaron boi...
opps.. no longer little.. as he already started Std 1 for 3 mths...
yet that's another little monster whom is 5 yrs younger than him...

hehe... as usual.. he will choose Japanese Cuisine for his celebration...
we went to Edo Ichi in Island Plaza...
(previous MNG store... )
a quite new restaurant which highly recommended by je je and ko ko after their first visit respectively...

this smart kiddo knows to order for himself...
he likes all the expensive food...
for entre... he had this weekly promo Fresh Sake Sashimi...
thick and fresh... rm 48.00

we required him to make a wish with the bowl of sake sashimi...
to pretend it as a cake.. ha ha ha

he did it... as requested...


he finished all by himself without sharing any little piece with others...
2nd... Sake Sushi...

3rd... another Sake Sushi Roll...

4th... Tempura Ebi (prawn) alacarte for himself...
and
5th.. the main course...
Unagi Don...

oh yes.. this little kiddo finished all his orders by himself...
erm.. left only a small portion of rice afterall.... *big applause...
(he eaten more than a hundred $ d... )

the rest are orders for others...

This Unagi Sushi with Cheese is AMAZING !!!!

the unagi is juicy.. and thick and so beautiful grilled with the strong aroma of its sauce !!
oh my... I was melted at the time it melting in my mouth...
my face expression simply answered everything... (oh ya.. cudnt see it here :P )

Soft Shell Crab Temaki... (handroll)

Unagi Somen...

something similiar to Zaru Soba...
they served the Somen on top of a bowl of ice.. in order to keep it cold...
Hot Spring Egg on top of the nicely grilled Unagi... hmmmm.... kimmie is melted again~ *.*
the crunchy sesame seeds added on brings the flavour to the top~

Tempura Set...
the shrimp is so big... biggest among any other japz restaurants in pg so far...



Dragon Roll...
Sake, Tuna, Avocado and shrimp sushi~

Gyu Teppan... Tenderloin Beef Cubes Teppanyaki...
the meats are tender... nicely cooked and well flavoured !

the teppanyaki is not coming with Rice.. but ala carte..

Stir Fry Japanese Tofu with Sliced Beef and Veggie...
Grilled Saba.. fresh and nice !

Yaki Soba with big fresh prawns

Grilled Salmon Fillet..

this is nice to go with white rice/ garlic fried rice.. or as a side dish to eat alone~

Japanese-Duck...
haha.. can't recall what this dish called~

Salad Prawn...

Salmon Skin Salad with Soft Shell Crab...
this is really good...

the dressing is superb.. blended with salmon skin and plus the home recipe.. it simply delivered the " ompphhh " ... (salmon skin is always our fav~~ ^^ )
a great choice if you would like something light and refreshing !
