Ais Kacang @ Lorong Selamat
A nice bowl of ais kacang during a hot day does wonders I was spending the day hunting for my new camera and it was scorching hot. So, we stopped at Lorong Selamat to enjoy some ais kacang and to cool off. And do you know that the famous char koay teow here has moved to their own coffee shop? Their new shop is a corner shop at the end of the road. I think the char koay teow stall’s migration has affected the business a lot.. it used to be difficult to find a seat. Now, seats are freely available.
This is one of the nicer ais kacang in Penang which has still managed to maintain the quality and taste (unlike New World Park‘s) The price did went up a bit though.. Another ais kacang stall I’d recommend would be Penang Road’s.. will blog about that in future.
Anyway this is the first photo I took after I got my EOS 400D, it’s crappy lol. And having a 50mm lens, I’m always trying to play with depth of field and create some nice bokeh shots. Until today I still haven’t mastered the DSLR.. especially under tricky lighting conditions.

Whenever people ask me for places to eat in Penang, Kek Seng will always be one of my recommendations. Old and nostalgic aside (they still preserve the square wooden tables and chairs), home made durian ice cream is a rarity nowadays and fortunately for us it is still available at Kek Seng. Also, their one

Was back in Penang a few days ago during the Hari Raya break. It has been a loooooooooong time since I last posted anything on Penang food so here goes. Despite Bukit Mertajam being a lot nearer to Butterworth than Penang Island, the only food I posted before in Butterworth is Sweet Paradise (Chao Quan)

If you have copy of Rasa Rasa Penang book “a visitor-friendly guide to its food” and went to try Swatow Lane‘s ice kacang based on its recommendation, you will be disappointed. I am not blaming the author for this, as I have also recommended this as one of the best ice kacang in [tag]Penang[/tag]. It’s

Belacan beehoon is a hawker food only available in [tag]Sarawak[/tag] if I am not mistaken. I knew Sarawak had kolo mee, Sarawak laksa, kampua but certainly not belacan beehoon. When I first heard the name, I thought it would be something like belacan fried beehoon. Allen, my host during my Kuching trip told me that
