Old Town Coffee@Tesco E-Gate

1st Old Town Hainannese Coffee in Penang

Rated: ***

Modern design of Malaysian style Kopitiam with marble table, laminating "coffee history" on the wall.
Just loacated next to Starbucks E-Gate. The food, all from local delight, from all the local coffee blend to toasted bread with kaya and butter to Nasi Kunyit and curry mee. The food is relatively simple and not overpriced. As this is a premium type of coffee shop, the food is not cheap either.

A set of Omega soft boiled eggs and a double Old Town kaya and butter toast would set you back RM3.60. The nasi lemak special is priced at RM5.80.
Drinks are cheap compare other restaurant along the row.

The drawback is quite noisy inside as expected "local kopitiam" style. Go along with a group of friends chit-chatting should be good idea for a cup of white coffee value. most probably during weekend and lunch time for Fri, the place is most crowded for it strategic location as people coming out from Bayan Lepas FIZ. I wonder can this be extended as Queensbay will be opening soon end of this year. Penang biggest and longest shopping mall.

Team Bulding 9 Sep 06'

This was my company team building for the whole department of NC07 PE in Gurney Plaza.
Last year it was held in Parkroyal Hotel with various games and activities.
Not bad to have 1/2 off for the day on Friday 9 Sep :-) Although i reach there ~3pm. But the Cosmo staffs still let us continue with the amusement park game till 3.30pm before we take family photo to end up that we have been here.

The attendance rate is quite good. Most of us turn up for this round. Actually the Amusement Park opens for us from 12-3pm. We all have been given RM10 McDonald coupon for lunch. After that, one movie ticket for you to select which ever movie you love.
Ofcourse i buy another to watch with Meyer for tonite 9.30pm. She has decided to watch something horrible when i ring her up for opinion. At last i decide to buy the Pulse movie ticket.

1st time i have been in the complex for less than 1 hr.Normally more than 2. Before I drive out of the carpark, I able to snapshot the whole surrounding of Gurney Plaza from my SE W810.

With te Penang 2nd link bridge and Monorail to be implement by government, the area of properties will be very demand. Wonder how many times from the current price 5 years later.

KL Vacation Day 3

This is the last day of the trip..9.30am wake up..7 hrs ++ more before we said Bon Voyage to KL

1st thing in the morning is faster go Times Square for photo album exchange as it was a bit out of shape after purchase from Pork Chop&Friends

Thanks for the shop owner for allowing the exchange of a new1. I think she should thank us. Coz Meyer continue her purchasing there..

We need to check out by 1pm from the hotel. Without thinking any much more, we step in to this interesting Restaurant which located in 3rd floor of BTS. Near to Cosmo's World Theme Park Atrium. This was the 3rd Restaurant i have visited so far in KL with whole orange color decor for the entire shop. Em..Orange rules!! I love orange color. Being wearing the orange color sports shoes all the time for this trip :-P

Step by step yum yum:-)

Cheese baked rice, salad roll, french toast, mango&kiwi pudding, "mother nature" ais blended..Are you able to finish it all? -_-""

Only notice MBF Cards members have 15% discount for dinning here..Really not bad..1st time use MBF cards with discount..Ppl living in KL should enjoy a lots of privilege with MBF cards. Hopefully MBF can give more discount/privilege for ppl in Penang. At least 15% can cover the service charge and gov tax waiver.

Straight away go back to Fortuna once finished our lunch. A bit rush but still okay. Late for 15min but still in time for check out. The managment allow us to keep our luggage in the hotel before we heading for our last place visit for this trip.

One place you will never miss before going back is Petaling Street. Also known as ChinaTown in centre of Malaysia. What is most available here is all the pirated products such as CDs, Clothes, Bags, Watches, Wallets. The traders are better compare to the pass but only the indian that selling jersey. He was sucks. Inviting me to have a look for his jersey, end out rudely when i didn't make any purchasing.

Look..Petaling Street just opposite nia..How u wanna go thru?Follow rules by overhead bridge or just ran across?

What we bought there were some clothes, (love the army shorts :-P), watches, and dried meat from KL branded "Kiew Brothers". The bak kua or barbeque pork and chicken meats are associated with Chinese New Year. Not bad the spicy one. We bought different favour. Taste good. Not too salty, oily and sweet. Just nice :-)

Guest which watches are bought from there?

Wonder how much we pay for taxi from Fortuna to Puduraya?RM2.20 only..Is a Malay driver somemore..Ppl out there, dont be cheated by not run by meter. It should be mush more cheaper compare to the price cabbies offer. Reach there 45min earlier, have to wait before we depart to go down staircase for our bus platform.

Meyer's silly face while waiting before going down to the Konsortium Platform. Guess why she only hold this? These were her valuable stuff bring home :-)

This is most luxury shopping complex in KL. The seven themed levels at Starhill Gallery will be renamed - Feast, Indulge, Adorn, Explore, Pamper, Relish and Muse.

1st- Feast (More for dining)


Guest what available here beside the LV, Omega fashion brand? Lecka-Lecka which has a kiosk at the main entrance of StarHill. The Real Room is an indoor/outdoor restaurant with an international menu adhering to the criteria that every dish is authentic regardless of the country of origin, true to the Lecka-Lecka philosophy of Make It Real.

The lounge bar offers low comfortable seating where diners can enjoy a water wall cascading down the glass walls. Three elements of design are featured outdoors: one being the area immediately outside the bar where low seating will complement the interior seating; Moroccan style tents provide guests with shaded comfort to dine whilst using the facilities of broadband; whereas wooden tables scattered in the area create warmth and comfort among the beautiful palm trees.

Next will be Adorn which have the shop lot as Swiss Union, Ulysse Nardin, Gucci, Cortina Watch, Alfred Dunhill..

Most of the luxury watches can get from here..Cortina Watch is one of them

Floor by floor walking also tiring :-P This floor at 3rd called Explore with Timberland available..Just nice for us to have a good rest here and enjoy the musical performance from the foyer..kakaka:-)

Notice that the performance held at the foyer can be view by the LCD screen above clearly

After Explore, the next floor will be Pamper, for spa, reflexology, make up.

The 5th floor will be Relish with YTL property show room and a Japanese Buffest called "Jogoya"

The top floor where all the art gallery available is Muse which is also the linkage to JW Marriott Hotel

Do you know how to value a fine art?

This is the most tire day and the most pics I able to take for the trip. For Meyer i think the tiredness has been repay for her..Most of the stuffs are for her:-)

Our 2nd day destination will focus to ~Berjaya Times Square (BTS)~

For saving times, we took a quick cereal and tip-bit for the morning as we plan to taste a good one in BTS. On the way to BTS, here are what we capture:

One place that draw our attention was called “Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant”..is really a large want..I thought is a just a restaurant without looking up..But.. Grand Plaza Parkroyal Hotel.

Here we are..

Outside View was so impress although I think BTS have been 3-4 yrs liao..

At last we have a stop by for B'fast..But is nearly lunch time liao..

For those who is interested to open an outlet in PG...I will support you :-)

Ever see the brand Pink Panther in Malaysia? It was located at ground floor. Meyer bought 2 shirt from there. Look very different compare to other outlet. kinda cartoon character wears you can get..Sesame street, Walt Disney and Pink Panther.

Next shopping along..bought alot of stuff especially in Pork Chop & Friends Shop..becoz...50% discount due to shop get closure..Guest how much we spend on that shop alone? 200++ Wonder if it was normal price, it will coz double..This is most satisfy for me..

The 1st Indoor Theme Park Cosmo's World in a shopping complex and also a Hotel.. This Theme Park is include children and adults..But price was quite expensive.. RM25..I may as well go Genting..

What else beside roller coster? a 3D IMAX theater!!!

Next there was also a new bowling centre call Super Bowl grand opening just 2 days before our arrival.. Price is quite resonable RM3.30/game nomal day and 3.60/game weekend..The shoes they lend also not like Megamal Pinang which have to let them keep urs once you loan from them.. Not only that...They even have 32" LCD Screen...

What will be the next? l.u.n.c.h. ",) At BTS Food Court

Imagine how big and giant the food court are..


The cleanliness of the food court and surrounding senery make this place excellent..
On RHS, can view the architecture of KL buiding, while on LHS, you can hear sreaming sound from the theme park..A variety of food available in this food court varies from Western, Italian, Japanese, Vietnamese, Thai, Malay, Chinese, Indian..

After stomach full..u need stomach to have better digest..
Pic below describe all..


Before out from BTS, we chill out with four new Ice Blended drinks..Taste good with the ais-cream too..but too bad cant recall back the shop name..

Night life in Bkt Bintang is the best..foot massage, arabic style smoking called "shisha". The hookah comprises a metal stand with outlets for hose pipes, a tray, a clay bowl, and a base usually of glass or crystal which contains water.

Along Bintang Walk, what's most attarct us were Samsung "spaceship" & Standard Chartered kiosk.

Conclusion for the Day 2 day-time..

Many $$$ spended in outfits, foods, pork chop..End up carry heavy weight bags going back..
