Chicago Rib House, Gurney Plaza

Since i saw there's a promotion on the evoucher, i bought it and give it a try.
We had the Pork Rib, their signature dish.
The grilled rib with BBQ sauce. It was overall quite flavorsome.
The presentation of the dish was not as expected; as it comes with the salad which is only cabbages and a little of mayonnaise in the small plastic container on the plate...
The Menu.....
 The soup was served in a tiny little cup, it was too spicy that feels like burning the throat. Too much pepper in the soup. It was served with a carbonated drink as well.
The promotion was rm56 for 2 pax. Yes, although quite worth it but i would say they need to make the soup a little bigger bowl and less spicy.

Mirrors Georgetown

Lately there have been many posts on the photos of the Murals painting on the wall at Georgetown area.
Thus, I went to join my friends for cycling and hunt for the 6 Murals of Georgetown.

Last Saturday,7 July was the Georgetown Heritage Day.
Found information about the artist behind all this. It was the art trails of a young Lithuanian artist named Ernest Zacharevic. It all begins with the inspiration of Ernest Zacharevic towards Penang city heritage and culture.Featuring his artwork “Mirrors Georgetown” around Heritage zone at Cannon Street, ,Muntri Street, Armenian Street, Chew Jetty and several other places in town.
Photo of Ernest Zacharevic below that found from other sources in the websites.

I was all excited about cycling/ It has been long since I cycled.
Had a great morning. Before that we had a short discussion on our whereabout of our morning route.

We started our journey from Campbell Street. Our first stop at Cannon Street, there’s this boy ‘Reaching Up’ to peep on something???! 

Next stop is the "Little Children on a Bicycle" at Armenian Street.

We continue our ride to the Chew Jetty.  This is where the "Murals of the Children on a Boat"...lucky thing, it was still early, thus not many people are there...We were enjoying ourselves there...:)

Next we had our breakfast time at Cannon Street before we depart to our next destination. 

The Wantan Noodles was a bit too salty for me. 
After 20 minutes break, we continue our ride journey to the 4th Mural.
"Boy on a Bike" and the Little boy with Dinasour, his pet at the Ah Quee Street.

Headed to the 5th Mural..."The Old Man"....
Our final 6th Mural - "The Little Girl in Blue" at Muntri Street...

David Brown Restaurant, Penang Hill

I was having a fruitful great weekend with my friends...
I was having my 1.5 hours hike from Botanical Garden up to Penang Hill, we had a wonderful breakfast at David Brown Restaurant.

Nice view:

The kids are happily enjoying their time there too....
There comes our hi-tea set...There were sandwiches, scones, apple pies and some baguette with ham.... 

The dining area inside David Brown restaurant...

It's a great place if you would like to overview Penang. It has the Lounge where you may enjoy your cocktail or wine while enjoying the panaroma view of Penang island...the relish appreciation of the nature...

Wu Jia Chinese Cuisine; Penang

For those who would like to try Chinese dishes, you can try this at Pekaka area, Sungai Dua...
This shop used to be a vegetarian shop. Now it has taken over by Wu Jia Chinese Cuisine.

The recommended dish by the chef is their Curry Prawn..
And we had a try, u know's simply delicious...!! The price is quite reasonable, only RM30.00, medium portion.

The next yummy dish is the Nutmeg chicken coated with mayonnaise.
They marinated the chicken meat with nutmeg. Then, deep fried it and coat it with mayonnaise. The chicken meat is tender and the coating is just thick enough.

We ordered Asparagus stir fried with garlic. It was a simple and a good dish.

Next dish was quite special. It's ...Fish cook with yam in a claypot...

The stir-fried vegetables with century eggs...

the Omelette with carrot and spring onions....

This is the broccoli with mushrooms..

Restaurant KGCR Mikuriya Station

Thanks to my friend to recommend this restaurant to me.

We always find it hard to find a good place with air-conditioned restaurant in Kulim during lunch hour. You may find this Restaurant KGCR Mikuriya Station in the Kulim Golf & Country Resort Clubhouse (KGCR) itself. You might wonder how does this Mikuriya name comes from? The name Mikuriya Station actually comes from the railway station in Japan: Nagasaki & Tottori.

They have this Express Set Lunch served with RM14.80/set. This include 1 fish dish with 1 type of vegetable of the day with unlimited rice.

They have 5 different types of sauce and cooking style for the Tilapia fish…We ordered every of the sets to try out together.

*The Spicy Nyonya style steamed Tilapia fish with add-on of vegetable.The sauce has the turmeric with garlic and chilis. It is not too spicy and too aromatic for me…

*I prefer the Steamed Fish with some garlic. It’s just a simple sauce with steaming of the fish yet it’s quite good.

*Another good one is the Sweet and sour tilapia fish.

*Those who like spicy one can choose the Spicy kampong style curry fish, catfish.

*For those that cannot take too spicy dish, can try the Deep-fried Tilapia fish Set.

We had the boiled Celery with garlic as well.

It's quite worth the price, with the size of the dish...

My suggestion is to call for booking 15minutes before you reach.
