Lunch At Restaurant Seafood Jetty, Bukit Tambun.

I am back again after a 6 days break from blogging. Hubby and I, and 6 friends went on a 5D4N cruise holiday on the Superstar Libra. It was my first cruise trip from Penang-Port Klang-Langkawi-Phuket-Penang starting on the 13th to 17th March. Together with another family of 4, we started our drive in a 7-seater car from Ipoh at about 11.40 am on the 13th (Tue). Another couple started earlier than us and went on ahead of us in their car to Penang.
 Driving on the North-South expressway
 It was a bright, sunny day.
We will be stopping for a seafood lunch at Bukit Tambun.
 Here is the seafood restaurant. I noticed that it has a new signboard! A noticeable difference from the one shown below.
 This was the old signboard when I was here with my ex-colleagues about 9 months ago, in June, 2017.
 From the restaurant, we could see fishermen bringing in their cockles harvest.
 Washing and separation of the cockles.
 Fresh cockles - small, edible, marine bivalve mollusc. 
 Live grouper fishes in the seafood restaurant.
 No, we didn't order this fish.
 Instead, we ordered a fish similar to the red fish (ikan merah) and have it steamed.
 A special dish for the junior, the youngest in our group.
Chinese style steamed egg with water - smooth like tofu custard.
 Fried fresh oyster omelette (or chien).
 Crispy, crunchy deep fried squids (sotong).
 Sweet, sour dipping sauce for the deep fried squids.
 Sweet sour mud crabs.
Fried mantou (deep fried Chinese steamed buns).
Best eaten by dipping into the sweet sour sauce of the crab dish.
 A very scrumptious lunch for 6 people.
 Colourful toll gate - heading towards Penang after the seafood lunch.
 Driving on the Penang 1st bridge - 2.45 pm.
We had about 3 hours to spend on Penang island before we head towards the jetty. It was a hot day and we were looking for a nice cool place away from the sun. (Give me some time and I will be visiting and blogs hopping.)

The sun crosses the heavens from end to end, and nothing can hide from its heat.

God's laws are perfect. They protect us, make us wise, and give us joy and light.

God's laws are pure, eternal, just.

(Psalm 19:6-9, The Living Bible-TLB)

Texas Fried Chicken In Ipoh

A week after the Chinese New Year celebration, we (together with friends) visited a church member who was admitted to the hospital. She fell and suffered a dislocated elbow with one arm bone fractured. After the visitation, our friend's grandson wanted to eat fried chicken for dinner. It turned out that he wanted to eat the newly opened Texas fried chicken at SOHO Ipoh. Good! I am always game to try new food.
First, the seniors found a place to sit. In spite of the crowd, we managed to get a table for 6 people. We left the ordering and serving to the younger generation. Each one had a muffin and 2 big pieces of fried chicken. A very filling dinner!
Customers have to queue to order, pay and then wait for your number to be called to collect your food. Everything, including getting your own drinks is self-service.
Wall decor. Texas Chicken has been around since 1952 but only reached Ipoh 2018!
People are very keen to try new food.
Half way through our dinner, it started to rain cats and dogs.
 We couldn't leave because of the heavy rain, so we stayed a bit longer to enjoy another round of the free flowing drinks. 

Run from anything that gives you the evil thoughts that young men often have,

but stay close to anything that makes you want to do right.

Have faith and love, and enjoy the companionship

of those who love the Lord and have pure hearts.

(2 Timothy 2:22, The Living Bible-TLB)
