Dragon-i with family

Didn't really have a birthday party until now and I don't think that I want to have one either; to me, sitting down together with family and friends to have a nice meal is more than enough. Always, I celebrate my birthday with my daddy as his birthday is five days before mine, this is to make it easier and save. Laugh. This year, with my sister and her hubby, we one family went to Dragon-i to dine. Just a simple dinner and ordered a few veges (we don't really know they famous with what as we normally go for their ramen).
Titbits. RM2
芙蓉塞螃蟹 . RM18
重慶雞煲 . RM38
醬燒鮑菇茄子魚片 . RM25
蠔皇什菌扒豆腐 . RM22
京式宮保蝦球 . RM35
I don't have the English name for all the veges we ordered, so bear with me on this but I think photos already show everything here. When the waitress first served the egg, I was like: Yucks why the egg yolk is raw one? but after we stirred the egg white with that, this dishes turn out quite well! Of all the veges we ordered, I feel that the Stewed Chicken not so attractive to me, too normal and maybe not suit our taste-buds; the rest are quite okay. Just a short update for my birthday celebration eating. 
How can we not order the signature Shanghainese Steam Meat Dumplings when we dined in Dragon-i? No matter how many times I tasted it, I still fall for them over and over again. That's all for this post, I'm rushing out for my dinner now, Ciao~

Happy Birthday

That's my bufday; being a Taurus is awesome although some of the horoscope description of Taurus doesn't sound so flattering. One trait that suit me well is EAT, you can see this from my blog (all about foodie!) and hope that I can uncover more food or new cafes to all of you. Thanks for all the wishes from friends and family, I'm loved to see all the wishes once I opened my eyes early in the morning, and thanks to my parents preparing the not-so-red eggs for my lunch. I'm officially 25 now!

Will update some birthday post as soon as possible, and also my Langkawi trip post >.<

Dear Diary # 1

Yeah, very lame title I knew. My mind just couldn't think of a better title, so just put it up like this first, I'll think again on my next attempt. Always I use up quite some times to finish a post from choosing photo to cracking head for some juicy words. That's why I mostly blog about new places or new foodie only; people will started to think that my life getting dull after-since I work for more than 1.5 years now. Nah, I still enjoying my foodie life to the fullest and it's better to make a quick post like this to depict my life.
[Slurp the Pan Mee!]
Yeah, no doubt I'm a rice lover but sometimes I'm kind of obsess with Pan Mee as well. So by chance if I went down to Kuala Lumpur, I wouldn't miss the chance to taste their Chili Pan Mee where I hardly found one in my food heaven island. But, let's look at what I'd found in few years back - Pan Mee Soup in Island Park, Greenlane. It's just normal soup based Pan Mee where cooked together with anchovies, shredded mushroom, minced meat and veggies. Normal but it gives me a sense of home. 
[Hello Turtle]
Few weeks back, we colleagues went to Batu Maung area to have great lunch for Ai Thing's farewell, we were like tornado swallow all the foodie in just 15 minutes. We people decided to do an exploration at Penang Aquarium Batu Maung with the time left and we were quite lucky to get promotion price like RM2 for the entrance fee (normally it will cost around RM5 for adults). It was my first time to get this kind of leisure during working hours, glad that we all had fun with the sea creatures inside, especially the turtles, they are awesome!
[When Black Ball meet with Milk]
Never did I da bao (take away) Taiwanese dessert like this before, thanks to Cecilia who brought this for us during our weekend activity = mahjong. The weather is freaking hot few weeks back, with the black ball dessert, at least we felt better but be frankly, Taiwanese dessert still the best when you dine in-house, the take away quite watery and ice melt faster than in bowl.
[Penang International Science Fair]
Our company took part in the PISF Year 2013, our Research and Development team are the one who design all the games for public. I actually have no relate with their work and only joined them when they were lack of people during the event held at Straits Quay. A tiring task to handle the crowd especially kids, repeat the same thing again and again; overall it's a good experience. Some of my friends dropped by to say Hello but too bad I'm too busy to talk with them, yeah it's you.
[Clams as supper]
Met new friends from Kuala Lumpur, coming here to work during Matta Fair (will explain more later part) and of course for the foodie. It was quite late when I first met them, brought them to New Lane, Georgetown to heal their tummy; with no hesitate, they ordered food like they were fasting for months. Oh my gosh, we finished most of them except for the famous porridge, it's just not our type of tea.
[The Matta Fair]
The bunch of new friends are from Magga Travel, coming here to join the Penang Matta Fair 2013; I was in the team as well helping them throughout the days. I can only say I might not a good sale person although how good I can explain, luck might play another important role in this matter. Guess what, I'm going to join them for Sabah fair on coming July (as if they want me in their team lah~), imagine how good it is to have free flight, free accommodation, free meals somemore earn money to spend over there. Big heart!

Hell yeah, 2 days before the big day.

Cuppa at The Daily Dose Cafe

[When I passed by the cafe again, I noticed that this cafe is shut down - updated on Year 2014]

First post for April, my month, I knew that I was neglected here for no reason, just felt like spending more time with my bed instead of lappie. Here am I again to share every little bit of my life and also Penang foodie! I know that most of the Penangite or people who've come in Penang enjoy the local cuisine, same to me; still, I love to dredge up some new cafe which is mushrooming rapidly nowadays. 
Went to The Daily Dose Cafe on a rainy afternoon which is located at Lebuh Carnarvon near to the junction of Lebuh Chulia. Remember this sign board of theirs, I spotted the pinkish rose building because of this not-so-obvious sign board too.
Bumped into few angmo (foreigner) backpackers when we stepped inside the cafe, they were so focus on their gadget, why so serious?! 
Newspaper and magazines are prepare for diners, in case girls plan to immerse here for hours, boys can just grab one to read then.
The counter where barista make your great coffee and tea from. Noticed that they placed some dried nutmeg seed in front of the counter, they do served white nutmeg juice, here is the seeds they took out from the nutmeg fruit, as a decor. 
Awwh, found something that me heart, a rustic tin that full of jequirity seeds and a big metal crane that remind me of primary school.
The pretty lady that served us on that afternoon, she is not local but angmo. Spotted the large blackboard that covering one wall of the cafe listing down all food choices. This added the arty vibe into the tiny cafe that offers Mediterranean styled salads, sandwiches, bagels, drinks and desserts. Heard that they actually served fresh fruit palatas (ice lollies) but I didn't get to try it, I want to try!!!
After you placed your order, ice water with drips of lemon juice is served before your meals and drinks. My gryphon tea - English Breakfast Tea (RM6) on the left and le boyfie's Iced Latte (RM11) in the middle. They actually served wine as well, list of wine is jotted on another blackboard. 
Grilled Cheese Sandwich . RM14
This sandwich is a good presentation of their flavour style, you can see the sandwich oozes generously with melted cheddar cheese with lots of rocket leaves. If you don't like veggie, you may try their Cubano sandwiches which stuff with ham. Le boyfie not really into veggie but I made him eat half; that's the only food we ordered since our lunch was yet to digest.
Found out that most of the uncle around here pay their visit like everyday, the lady know what they need without taking order. It's like a coffee addict-er needed to come here daily for a dose of coffee to heal the desire.
