Where can i buy clomid The mural is finished!

The last time I came here in February, the mural was halfway being painted by teenage school kids. I was amazed at their tenacity to sit here for hours painting under the scorching heat.

Kudos! The mural is now finished on my recent trip here two months later. Although the old man’s smile is a little too wide and creeped me out a bit, good job done nonetheless!

The box was still warm

Thanks to Kelvin’s brief moment of being a history channel ambassador, I’ve learnt how the originator of this taosarpiah was actually by Ghee Hiang, dating its establishment all the way back to 1856. WOW. Imagine eating taosarpiahs 300 years ago. Now every bite makes me think walk down history lane.

Then, Him Heang came in to compete with Ghee Hiang, and innovated further by creating the Tambun biscuit. Competitiveness, perseverance, especially in business, are strong traits you see in the chinese.

Today, Him Heang has become a worthy player in the market. Always packed with patrons and half the time, they might be sold out and you need to come back later on to buy if you are desperately craving for them.

But the price keeps going up and up and up. From those days, RM 6 ish, to RM 8 ish to RM 11 today for the big box.

East meets west

The “food galore rendezvous” foodie gang popped in a few TSPs while waiting for our food…we were really hungry by then.

That was when both unexpected eyes met. Whaddya know the eastern taosarpiahs could have set eyes on the western italian and aussie wines. I am guessing this is one of the few rare photos on a TSP with wine.

Wine reviews : will be with Tatsu’s foodie review next!

Chicken rice revisit@Sin Nam Huat Roasted Chicken and Duck Rice, Macallister Road, Penang

image

Justttttt right opposite Loh Guan Lye hospital

It had been a year since I last came here and all I had were wonderful memories. As my next visit was to Loh Guan Lye itself, what could be more perfect that parking right in front of the shop itself (we were lucky of course) and grabbing a quick bite at this delicious place!

As it was already late (about 2 p.m), the lunch crowd had sorta subsided, leaving behind some remnant like lunch go-ers who worked till late like myself. Otherwise, there would always be a long queue at peak like lunch hours.

Siew kai siew yoke

I was extremely hungry by now and on top of this 2 pax portion of siew yoke and siew kai, I gluttonly added 1 more pax portion of siew kai. The chicken was evenyl roasted and had a smokey slight burnt taste at the outer skin layer, but retained the softness inside.

The siew yoke was also not too fatty. Since I was really hungry, I skipped my routine habit of digging out the lard bits as the lard layers were thin.

The portion was not that big for 2, and I told my colleague that I myself could finish all of these. @_@.

Pretty worthy chicken rice in my opinion. Not really cheap though, I paid about RM 32 in total, for 3 pax roast chicken, 2 pax roast pork and 2 plates of rice. @_@. Pricier than KL eh?
