Road Side Fish Head Bihun & Tom Yam Seafood Variety @ Jalan Bagan Jermal, Penang

If you are the type who are in love with hot and spicy soup like Tom Yam, Fish Meat Bihun and the sorts of pick, cook and pay kind of noodles, then you definitely will be interested in this post.

I've heard about this place opened and replaced the previous western food place. Then changed to a pretty common restaurant selling Fish Bihun. Then it didn't attract me at all.
One day, when I was looking for dinner with friends, I noticed it when I drove passed this place and finally entered this restaurant.
Road Side Fish Head Bihun & Tomyam Seafood Variety is located directly opposite St.Nicholas Home at Jalan Bagan Jermal. It can be easily spotted as it is located at the road side along Jalan Bagan Jermal.

The moment I entered the restaurant, I can smell a good aroma of sourish Tom Yam that instantly stirred up my appetite. They offered variety of different dishes from porridge, noodles, fried rice and many more.
Soup selections are milk broth, Tomyam soup or clear soup.
Noodle selections are like vermicelli, yellow noodle, instant noodle, porridge and many more.

I would say that the milk broth are rather milky and delicious. The combination of ginger, tomatoes, salted vegetable made the soup itself tasted rather appetizing and the richness of the milk soup went went with the combination and the fried fish was very fresh. 

I ordered myself a bowl of Tomyam Yee Mee with quite a variety of ingredients selected from the tray. This big bowl of delicious Tomyam cost me only RM16.00 which I think it is fairly cheap if you were to compare to other stalls out there. I asked for less spicy tomyam soup so the spiciness was rather moderate, and the sourness of the soup is just perfect. I love how thick the tomyam soup was and I really fell in love with this dish from my first sip of the soup.

If you are a big fan of tomyam, you should really give this restaurant a hit.
I'm sure you will fall in love with it!

Wu Jia Zhuang Claypot Hokkien Prawn Noodle 吴家庄砂煲福建虾面 @ Siam Road Penang

I'm really a big fan when it comes to Hokkien Mee, something which is commonly known as Prawn Noodle in other states of Malaysia.

Hokkien Mee is quite a signature hawker food in Penang and you can basically find it anywhere around Penang. 
Some restaurant owners like Wu Jia Zhuang decided to bring this Penang's signature street food to a whole new level, which is Hokkien Mee in claypot


Wu Jia Zhuang is located at a hidden street in Penang, Jalan Siam (Siam Road). There is another hidden gem but rather famous Char Koay Teow @ Siam Road but it is on the other end where it is near Anson Road. 

This Hokkien Claypot Prawn Noodle is charging at RM12.90 nett per pot. I would consider this pot of Hokkien Mee is rather reasonable with 2 medium big prawns, 2 pieces of pork ribs, some roasted pork and one whole braised egg. What I really like is their homemade fried onions, unlike what other people usually buy the ready pack which tasted totally different. The soup was rather flavourful with a rich aroma of prawn soup, but one thing I'm not really into was the noodles were a bit overcooked in the hot boiling soup in the claypot.

Other than Hokkien Mee, Wu Jia Zhuang is also serving Chinese dishes(Zhu Char 煮炒) where you can order from the menu. Price range is from RM10.00 up to RM80.00 depending on what you order. They also serve seafood like crabs, mantis prawns, squids and many more.

Stay Young with AstaRed Gluxanthin

Anti-aging is all this while a hot topic especially to people who are moving into 30s from 20s like me. 
But I believe there are also 30s, 40s and 50s who are more concern on anti-aging products.
Recently I have came to know a skin specialist who are specializing in anti-aging, skin rejuvenating and whitening. 
Meet Doctor Tan Wooi Peng, a General Practitioner wsii Skin who holds quite a number of certifications specialize in Skin, Weight Loss and Hair Loss Treatment. 

Below are some of the tips that I gained during the interview.
I would like to share it with my friends and readers
When we talk about anti aging, we all clearly understand that everybody do age especially the obvious results of aging would be our on our skin. 
But what really did concern us is what is the factor that speed up the aging process?  
Through Doctor Tan, I've learned that one of the most common causes that speeds up aging process would be the SUN Rays UV.
The UVA from the sun that hits directly on our skin, reflected from mirror or any reflective object would also speed up the aging process of our skin. UVA basically appears everywhere as long as we are standing outdoor. And UVA can go through glasses even if the sun light hit our skin through glasses

Jump Street Trampoline Park Penang @ D'Piazza Penang

It was quite some time ago that I got invited to the first Jump Street Trampoline Park in Penang which is newly opened in D'Piazza Penang. 
Jump Street Penang is the first ever Trampoline Park also also one of Asia's Largest Trampoline Parks. Other than just typical Trampoline Park, they are also organizing several events to attract more visitors and have fun in the park.

I was invited on a Friday night to attend their "Keep Calm And Jump On" Friday night party. Where Jump Street will bring over some DJ to spin some musics and additional activities will be happening around the park.

The entrance of Jump Street looks pretty normal to me, but I got blown off when I entered the park.

Eté Cafe @ Carnavon Lane, Penang

A photo posted by JJ Jason™ (@jjzai) on
Eté Cafe is located in one of the most hidden corner in George Town, where there are also a few hidden gems around the area.
It is a simple and cozy cafe owned by a Taiwanese that decided to settle down in Penang with his specialty in French Pastries and Desserts.

My last visit was quite some time ago, and I went very early in the morning where they didn't even start their business yet, but thank goodness they are kind enough to let me in first.

There weren't much choices for me yet, and I was still full from my brunch and therefore I ordered a cup of espresso to go with their signature macarons. Their coffee is rather aromatic with a hint of bitter fruity flavour. Selling at RM5 per cup.
There were many flavours available but I choose green tea, rose and sea salt flavour. All three were rather flavourful and special than just typical sweet macarons. You can really taste the flavours in the fillings of every macaron. The sea salt flavour really did blew me off with the salty taste of macaron. Macarons are selling at RM15 for 3 pieces.

Opening of Honey Creme, The Soft Ice Cream & Bee @ Penang Gurney Plaza

A photo posted by JJ Jason™ (@jjzai) on


I'm definitely an ice cream lover and thank god I managed to be the first to try this delicious Ice Cream with Honey Comb, selling at RM14.90 each cup. I would say that it is rather expensive for a cup of ice cream, but if you were to think about them using real honey, then it would consider rather reasonable.

Well I'm pretty lucky to be there early as they were having 2 days of "Buy One Free One" promotion. So I bought 2 cup of ice cream at only RM14.90. It tasted pretty awesome and I didn't expect that honey could go so well with vanilla ice cream! Definitely a must for sweet tooth like me!


Honey Creme is located at the basement floor of Gurney Plaza, it is not difficult to spot on as there are not many stalls around the that floor.
Quickly grab yours today!

Revisiting Beep Beep Q @ Bangkok Lane, Penang

Other than that, they have also got some new items on the menu that will catch your attention for sure!
