Yahoo lists Penang among world’s top 10

Penang Char Kway Teow, the most famous dish in Penang. Absolutely tasty..

GEORGE TOWN: An online travel guide has picked Penang as one of the top 10 islands in the world “you must see before you die.”

Yahoo! Travel writer Gary McKechnie ranks Penang eighth on the list of the “must visit” places.

Other islands listed are Bali, Vieques in Puerto Rico, Easter Island in Chile, Ischia in the bay of Naples (Italy), Chiloe in Chile, Bora Bora in French Polynesia, Key West in the Conch Republic, Galapagos in Ecuador and Palm Islands in Dubai.

These destinations offered something that could not be found anywhere else, said McKechnie in his article ‘10 Islands to Explore Before You Die’ (http://travel.yahoo.com/p-interests-37926474).

He praised Penang as Malaysia’s food capital and suggested that visitors did their “food crawl” along George Town’s street stalls.

He recommended that foodies head to the area adjacent to the Kek Lok Si Temple in Ayer Itam to feast on delicious food of rice, noodles, fish, shellfish, chicken, pork and vegetables.

He also suggested visitors try out lor bak, lok-lok and ikan bakar.

On the local architecture, he described Penang as having a range of modern high-rise buildings to 19th-century British architecture.

He also pointed out a mix of beach resorts, preserved mangroves, fishing villages, temples, mosques and churches.

“Kek Lok Si was the best example as the largest Buddhist temple in South-East Asia,” he said.

So, for those who haven't visit Penang, you can do so. The foodies absolutely delicious and scenery also interesting.
That's for now.
Have a pleasant Monday.

Ring Of Fortune

Hello dear friends,
Well now, I am not going to post about Valentine's Day though the spirit of the celebration getting spreading in myself. Today i am going to share with you the dinner I had with hubby last night. All of sudden, i craved for Pizza Hut. Not really about the pizza but it's about my fav dish, Bolognese Spaghetti. I don't know why i found of most of all the restaurant I've been to, Pizza Hut's Bolognese Spaghetti is the best. I mean i found it really tasty compare to other restaurant such as Upperstar or E-west..hmm.. And hubby tried the Pizza Hut new recipe which is called Ring of Fortune. Quite okay though.. it was tasty too.

Okay, pictures always the best way to complete the story. Here they are:-

 Mushroom Soup, my fav :)


 Bolognese Spaghetti, my fav dish.. :P

 Ring of Fortune.. Pizza Hut new recipe

yum yum..hehe

This is the first dinner at Pizza Hut of the year. And we started it with the new recipe. Quite okay though. I found it is okay to try once in a while for a new recipe. So if you wanna try the new recipe, get to Pizza Hut near your place or perhaps you can order it online.

That's it for now. Have a healthy Thursday.
Take care.

P/s: I wonder why they called it Ring of Fortune.. hmm..maybe because of the pizza's shape.. :D

10 Tips For a Fun But Frugal Valentine’s Day

Yes i know, we have 6 more days to Valentine's Day. Less than a week. Isn't a solid reason for you to ready for a surprise plan for your loved one?.. Planning earlier will be much better, agree?..hehe.. So, now i share with you these frugal Valentine's tips. Maybe you can pick up which tip that more meaningful and easy for you to handle. The most important is, it is meaningful, memorable and make sure your loved one will love it. :D

These tips can help you dream up an approach to this year’s celebration that is both meaningful and economical.

1. Get creative when it comes to dinner. You really don’t have to spend RM80 to RM200 on a romantic dinner at a restaurant. Why not have a nice candlelit dinner at home? You could even get all dressed up for it. If you know you’re going to be too tired to cook after work on Valentine’s Day, which falls on a Monday this year, order a special meal ahead of time and pick it up on your way home.

2. Enjoy a little ambiance. If you both really want to go out on the town together, you could have coffee or a drink and dessert at an expensive cafe, restaurant or romantic bistro. This is a way to savor the atmosphere — and your date — without emptying your wallet.

3. Play hooky. OK, do NOT follow this tip if your job or your partner’s job is hanging in the balance. But if you’ve racked up some vacation time, or if your employer allows you to take personal days from time to time, why not see if you can take Monday, Feb. 14 or Wednesday, Feb. 16 off (as 15th is public holiday this year) and turn Valentine's Day week into a three-day weekdays for the two of you? Depending on where you live, the two of you could stroll through a park, walk on a beach, go snow-shoeing, take a rowboat or paddle boat out on a lake, or catch a matinee movie. You also could drive to a small town near your home or through neighborhoods you’ve never visited before and search for small, out-of-the-way places to eat or find public parks and open spaces for walks. You could do this at home, of course, or you could plan a short getaway that isn’t prohibitively expensive.

4. See some live music. Check to see whether a university or college in your area is offering any potentially enjoyable concerts on Feb. 14. Performances by the college music department would likely be free or cost a fraction of the price charged by professional orchestras and opera houses.

5. Seek out some silence. Here’s a potential date idea if you’ve both been stressed out lately: You could wander through libraries and bookstores with coffee shops that encourage browsing. Rediscover passages you love from your favorite books, and enjoy the quiet.

6. Have low-cost fun with food on Feb. 14. You can pull out the cookie cutters and make heart-shaped cookies and even cut your lunch sandwiches into hearts. You also can make heart-shaped cupcakes by placing a marble inside each muffin tin on the outside of the paper cupcake cup.

7. Give thoughtful gifts. Most people stick to the same general gift themes on Valentine’s Day: flowers, chocolates, cards, maybe a piece of jewelry. Can you think of something different that might mean a whole lot more — and maybe even cost a whole lot less? Such gifts could include cakes, cookies or gift certificates for your services. The gift certificate idea might be just the ticket for you if you’re short on cash but high on love this Valentine’s Day. You could offer to run errands for your loved one, make a nice dinner, clean the house, repair the car or give a massage.

8. Reflect on that flower purchase. If you’re sure your special someone will be devastated without the gift of flowers, then you probably should get some. But once again, you don’t have to follow the herd. Everyone opts for roses at this time of year, but there are plenty of other gorgeous and neglected (i.e., less expensive) flower varieties to choose from. And red isn’t your only option, either. You also could choose peach, pink or yellow. What’s more, if you place your flower order early, you stand to save as much as 15 percent on your purchase. And here’s another detail to consider: Does your partner love to garden and work in the yard? If so, a beautiful outdoor plant that will keep on living might be more appropriate than cut flowers that will quickly fade.

9. Write down how you feel. Using a package of inexpensive Valentines from the drug store or grocery store — or, for that matter, any kind of paper — you could write out dozens of reasons why you love your mate. Leave the messages all over the house, in both noticeable and hidden-away places. This is a gift that could keep on giving for weeks or months to come.

10. Plan ahead for next year. If Valentine’s Day is a day that matters to you and your significant other, make a mental note of how quickly it can sneak up on you after the big holidays in December. Think about realistic ways you can cut back on your spending so you’ll be able to use cash to cover all of the 2011-12 holidays without relying on credit cards and going into debt. Can you cut back on costly coffee drinks, snacks and sodas during your work day? Or maybe put off some discretionary purchases you’ve been thinking about making?
