This is a tame post

This post won’t get me into trouble. So you can also safely leave comments without worries. Cool man, cool.


Today is the last day of school. Whoopee! I got my little boy out of kindie at 10.00 am because I need to send my #2 to Batu Maung for his bike test at JPJ Batu Maung which is like the corner of the island. So, I kidnapped my little boy and both of us went to the Batu Maung and lepak at the pathetic little acquarium. Actually, the acquarium is not too bad and worth a visit with your little kids.


Since we are in the neighbourhood, we dropped by PISA which is the white elephant of Penang. They built an Olympic size swimming pool and only to be told it is not really Olympic size. The indoor stadium too have not seen too many events. By product of BN lah. And do you see the three ‘standards’ of chairs? You can tell this food exhibition is a BN event. I heard some Ministry of Tourism folks and Kee Phaik Cheen are coming to officiate the thing.


This is the first time I went into the Battle of the Chefs arena. I need to pay RM3 entry fee but it offers a lot of stuffs to see. Food carvings, cooking competitions, cake decorating, ice carvings, teh tarik etc.


Plenty of food photos to capture.

I met Momo and PenangTuaPui, Fei Fei at PISA too. Oh ya, I bought some Mahathir Buffalo mozzarella which is RM15 per piece. Wish to buy the other type which costs RM75 per piece of cheese but heh, I went to PISA with less than RM100 because I didn’t intend to go in the first place. So, no expensive cheese and Mahathir Beef, only heart clogging pork luncheon meat. Kita orang miskin, Pak.


My eldest son’s college is one of the sponsor so he has to on duty at PISA. It is good exposure for him to see what being chefs are. Actually, it is very interesting to be chefs, so fun to cook and so much creativity.

  1. I don’t go this year. Your son should go to the one in Spore next year. International standard. Ini nothing to huhar abt. Anyway, it’s good to go jalan jalan and have a look. Btw, I found a new orphanage at Cheah Kongsi near Mount Eskine. Maybe, we go one of this day together.

  2. I been to PISA but never went inside so I didn’t know they have this white elephant made swimming pool built for food festival. How “relevant” !!

    Was this event is the one been told that officiate by Yg Dipertua Negeri P.Pinang? The one saw from newspaper that paid 1 whole page to advertise thankful to? wow… is that way BN government spent our hard earnt money? I believe there are other means to thank someone.

  3. Olympic size pool but not Olympic size??????

    Why? They makan duit until no more budget to build the correct size ar? Bwahahahha!!! WTF!!!

  4. Bryan – This one the loktor teng punya kerja lor. I still remember. Then, they need to built batu kawan. Now, also not very much utilised.

    terence – Biasa ler, they hire dunno what consultant, they missed out the actual size so no international swimming competition. But I watched a couple of Sukma event before lah. Only qualify for SUKMA, the ASEAN games not qualified, I think.

    blink4blog – Ya lor, I also saw that ad. I forgot who put it, some private company I think.

    erina – Anytime! Call me when you go.

  5. Wah…. I bought lots of stuff and sampled all the food and drinks that were given out.I must have made at least 3 rounds.

    The bak kua stall was very laku as usual.Their pineapple tarts not bad!

    The most generous was Allagappa. They gave out lots of curry powder. I think I have enough to last a year! I also enjoyed the salted fish curry cooked by their Chef.They always serve a generous portion of it with rice, bread or roti canai.

    Wow… after all the sampling I no need to eat lunch liao!

    Ps: I bought almond powder,kopi O,Pokka drinks, curry paste,tau sar piah, brown rice,brown rice powder and Pacific West’s products. Lots to carry so did not manage to see the ‘Battle’.

  6. 3 types of chairs….What de…! was there an open area behind those chairs? for ordinary folks like ah beng to squat! this kind of class separation do not even happen in engkok.
    tht swimming pool can be turned into an indoor fishing activity, I sure go one!

    JT´s last blog post..A Fishy tale

  7. Hi Erina,

    Do you think you can give me the orphanage’s name and location? I am involve in a community organization that helps orphanages and old folks homes that no one knows and visit. Thanks in advance.

  8. JT – Got one more type somemore wan…..These kind of double, triple standards will put us poor, little, useless citizens in our places mah…..You know…..Kita hamba.
