Grandma 95th Birthday Celebration @ Jade Garden, Sungai Petani, Kedah ~ Part 1

Few months back, it was hubby grandma's 95th birthday. Most of the family members were busy doing all the preparation for the grand celebration. Guess from overseas flocking in and the outstation guests came. It was very busy day. But it was an enjoyable night.
There are many activities went on for the night such as line dancing performance, belly dancing, singing performance, lucky draw and cake cutting ceremony. ok, back to the foods that we had for the night:
Birthday Noodles
Usually for the start we had the birthday bun for the start but this year, they start with the birthday noodles. This year the birthday noodles was prepared with soup and accompanied with vegetables, prawns, chicken and pork slice, chillies slice and deep fried shallots.
The soup base is nice and sweet. And the noodles has the springy textures, Everyone at my tables loves it very much.
Birthday Bun
We kinda love the birthday bun in this restaurant. It was soft and the lotus paste inside the birthday bun was not too sweet. My gal was the one that always wants more of this bun. ^0^
5 Different Hot Plates
This year we had something different. As previously we had the combination of hot and cold dishes. This year they ordered 5 different types of hot dishes which including steamed egg custard topped with crab meat, BBQ stuffed chicken wings, deep fried prawn, fish and meat paste cake and stuffed crab stick, salted egg and fish paste wrap with bean sheet.
Shark Fin Soups
Actually we want them to do the other kind of shark fin soups which accompanied with the bean sprouts but we were told that we had around 70 tables, they are afraid that they have no man power to do so for us. So we end up with this shark fin soups. Which is also very nice and tasty.
Suckling Pig and Deep Fried Chicken with Plum Sauce
The suckling pig is very crunchy and it is accompanied with the steam bun. My gal can't resist the steam bun and she ate most of the steam bun. As for the adults in our table enjoyed the crispiness of the suckling pig. The deep fried chicken with plum sauce is nice too.
Steam Promfret with Teochew Style
The promfret was supply by ourselves to the restaurant. It is very fresh. Our Aussie guest was asking us what kind of fish is this. They love the textures of the fish and love it very much.
Combination of broccoli, braised sea cucumber, fish maw and "Fah Gao"
Not many people knew how to consume the above dishes. Some only took broccoli. But all these are one of my favourite foods. ^0^ And love the way they cook it. Even our Aussie guests try everything. And they love the textures and tastes of the braised sea cucumbers.
Black Pepper Prawn
The prawn was also supply by us to the restaurant. But this time round the prawn that we ordered was a bit smaller than expected.
Pumpkin with Black Sesame Tang Yuen
This is the last dishes that we had before we wrap up for the day. This year, they ordered pumpkin with black sesame tang yuen. The pumpkin soup was very smooth and the sweetness was just right. However, I feel that the tang yuen skin is a bit too thick. If they could adjust the thickness of the tang yuen skin, then it would be perfect.
Venue took place in
Jade Garden Seafood Restaurant,
202-209 Taman Ria Jaya 08000, Sungai Petani, Kedah.

Goh Huat Seng (Chu Char) @ Lebuh Kimberley, Penang (revisit)

On and off we will stop by to Goh Huat Seng for some comfort foods. I still remembered my first trip to this restaurant. It's about 8 years ago. My mother in law (MIL) brought me there with great grandma, hubby's aunt and uncle. We had lunch there. And my MIL ordered us so many different dishes. And their steamboat is also one of my hubby favourite foods. This lead me to think of going back for their charcoal steamboat soon. ^-^
During our visit, we had a quick dinner with my sister in law (SIL) as we were in the hurry to settle something after the meal. So we order some simple dishes such as
Seaweed Fish Ball Soup
My gal loves the soup and not sure how many bowl of soup she had on that day. She told me she loves the fish ball too as it is in springy form.

Braised Duck and pork intestines
The braised dick is very tender. I love the way they cut the braised duck. It is cut into thinly sliced. It is easy for kids and the elderly.

Deep Fried Fish
Although it is just a simple deep fried fish but it is such a comfort foods for all of us. And my gal enjoys easting the fish since it is less bone intact. ^-^
Stir fry bean curd with leeks, prawn and mushroom
This dish can be easily found in most of the Teochew Cuisine. Sometime my mother in law also cooks this for us. Loves the bean curd as it is crunchy in the outer layer and soft inside.

Liu Li Xiang Klang Bak Kut Teh @ Gottlieb Road, Penang

During one rainy day, hubby and I were undecided what to have for dinner. And when we drove past Liu Li Xiang Klang Bak Kut Teh, we decided to drop in to try their foods. As we always passed through them but never have the chance to try it. And since it is rainy seasons, a pot of bak kut teh can warm us up.Liu Li Ciang Klang Bak Kut Teh should be no strangers to anyone as it has been operated for many years. It is located near Penang Chinese Girls' High School (PCGHS) @ Gottlieb Road, Penang.

Bak Kut Teh

Hubby ordered the bak kut teh and add more meat balls for my gal. She was very cold before she sip on the bak kut teh soup. After the first sip, she cannot resist for more as it could warm her up. She always loves the soup. Guess that soup base suits her taste buds.

Kerabu Bean curd

While ordering the bak kut teh, hubby was asked whether he would like to add on some additional dishes. Since we were pretty hungry, hubby decided to try the kerabu bean curd. We were told that this dish is one of the popular dishes. And we were not regret to order it. In fact we love it very much. The bean curd was deep fried and was coated with kerabu plus their special sauce.

Kozue Japanese Restaurant (revisit) @ Gurney Plaza, Penang

This is a back dated post. Which is sitting in my draft for many months. As I been busy this year and have not much time to spare for food blogging. And since it is a school holiday right now, I told myself, I need to spare myself sometime to do some blogging. ^0^
Recently, one of my friend asked me to recommend her some Japanese foods. After much thinking, I suggested her to try out Kozue since she shop at Gurney quite often and also with 3 kids tag along, I think it would be nice that she could try out.
This is our second visit to this place, for the first visit, you can refer to here.

Aspara Bacon ~ RM5
After he first visit, hubby loves the food. So we decided to go back again to try out other foods. This time round, we get Ms. Ivy to recommend us some foods. And she recommend that we try aspara bacon which we love it very much. It's a wrap of asparagus with bacon in a skewer. If you take beef, then I suggest that you try out their beef skewer as well.
Grilled Fish ~ RM58
This dish was not in the menu. We only knew that they offer this dish while chatting away with Ivy. If you remembered that in my first visit post, in the menu which there are so many question marks on it? Which means that there are special meals available every day. Which you have to ask them. Their every day meal changes every day. And we were glad that we have the chance to try upon the grilled fish. It was nicely done and the fish has a rich aroma and textures.
There are additional sauces to go with you. But I prefer the ordinary aroma from the fish. Both hubby and I think that it is best to dig in with its original aroma. However the sauces are nice too. It is make of vinegar.
Traditional Japanese Braised Pork Intestines ~ RM15
This is another dish that we try on that day. We were told that this is the traditional Japanese foods. Well, it seems like the same as our Chinese braised pork intestines but the sauce uses is different. The pork intestines are very tender. Hubby loves it very much.

Yaki Udon ~ RM17
Hubby would like to try their udon. So he order yaki udon to try it out.
Unagi Don
My gal loves unagi very much. Therefore, she ordered the unagi don for herself.

Before we wrap up our meal, we decided to try out their ice-cream as recommend by my friends. And we are glad that we try out their ice-cream. As it has a very rick black sesame flavours on it.

Pasar Ramadhan @ Lintang Mayang Pasir, Bayan Baru

Two weeks ago, one of my friends asked me whether would like to join her to Pasar Ramadhan. After some adjustment with my time, we decided to went there on Friday after work.
My friend asked me where is the best area in Bayan Lepas area for Pasar Ramadhan. As far as I know from my Muslim friends, they recommend that I go to Lintang Mayang Pasir which is near to Sunshine Square. I been there two years back with hubby and my gal. At that time, there are so many varieties. This year, I felt that there are not much stalls around as before.
We went around for three rounds to take photos and also bought some foods back for consumption. My gal tag along with me and she was asking me why we need to go around for three rounds and she was sweating badly. hahhahhaaa.......
Rasli Corner
At this corner, I bought my mini murtabak home. I took one photo of the murtabak before my meal. At this stall there are Murtabak - daging original, ayam, daging kurma, ayam kurma, daging pedas, ayam pedas, cendol madu and all for the price of RM 2. There are also special RM3 and double special for RM4. They also sell Nasi Tomato, Nasi Briyani and Nasi Ayam for RM2 each.
The owner of the stall was very friendly to us while we taking some photos of them and we were in the queue too to buy this murtabak.
Ayam Murtabak
This is the murtabak that I bought. And it is very delicious. It is indeed many ingredients in there. My friend bought from another stall. The murtabak that she bought cost RM1.50 but the ingredients is not as much as I do. ^o^
Ayam Madu and Ayam Percik
At this stall they sell ayam madu, ayam percik and also with rice. When my camera was hanging round my neck, the owner called us to take pictures of their chicken. He is so friendly and told us that he is going make some fire from the BBQ for us to take pictures. He told us pictures taken with the fire is more attractive. And thanks to his generosity, we took some photos from the stall. We did not buy from them since we already bought ayam percik from other stalls.
Ikan Bakar Teluk Tempoyak
When mentioned about Teluk Tempoyak, it's been quite sometime that I did not went there for a feast. My friend took photos of the stall and the owner also very friendly and pose for my friend. ^0^ From the fish itself, it looks very fresh and the aroma is irresistible.
Penang Ayam Percik
This stall locates at one side of the entrance to the pasar ramadhan. My friend has to queue for a long time in order to take her order. While she was busy queuing, I was busy snapping some photos. ^0^
They have two stalls in the pasar ramadhan. And their business is very good. They sell karipap ayam, karipap daging, samosa sardin, samosa ayam, popiah basah and also popiah goreng.
My friend bought some of the goreng popiah from this stall. They also sell wet popiah and deep fried popiah.
Traditional Satay
While waiting for my friend at Penang Ayam Percik stall, my gal told me that she would like to have some satay. So we went and bought 10pcs of chicken satay for dinner. The satay are very tender and cost RM0.40 for each.
Assorted Drinks
Before I ended this post, FoOd PaRaDiSe would like to wish all the Muslim friends, "Selamat Hari Raya Adilfitri".
