Golden Thai Seafood Village - (Batu Ferringhi, Penang) Malaysia

Dining with extended family I agree is all about bonding, but when its alongside almost literally 25 different characters, tell me please. Hair and head splitting. First of all, to decide where dinner should be, each of course have their own preferences, then, coming together, I mean driving together, especially when you are not sure where the roads are leading. Quite a thing actually, believe me. Still, we made it in one piece in Golden Thai Seafood Village. Impressive. Impressively set up, even the compound, upon walking in, you will notice rows and rows, one after the other sea catch confined in aquariums. Sad for the fish, prawns, crabs and what not, whichever sea creatures I noticed. Then again, I am not a vegetarian, so, no point sympathizing. After walking past the quite long aisle, while some family members disputed on what to order, we sat in the spacious dining area. Prettiness and neatness, with a cultural show going on right in front of us on the stage.

Ordering was not an easy feat either. I stayed clear. I didn't want to end up battling, by the way, I am not a fussy eater, so, anything goes for me. One person took charge, as usual while waiting, came the little plates of peanuts. Immediately crunched in since its already 9pm.
Thank god, we didn't have to wait for long. Dishes arrived simultaneously one after the other. Had to be.There were no other customers except us occupying three tables. One table allocated for vegetarians, everyone then immediately, at once tuck into the dishes alongside rice.
Stir Fried Green Mustard Garlic
Asparagus Belacan/Shrimp Paste
Prawn Egg Foo Yong
Grilled Prawns With Custard Sauce
Asam Steamed Fish
Ginger Chili Steamed Fish
Kam Heong Crabs

Not bad. I don't know about the rest, I don't think I should speak on behalf of others, I enjoyed this meal. The simply stir fried sawi/green mustard was appreciated, asparagus belacan killed in the Malaysian authentic tastes, egg omelette was a favourite among the kids, crispy on the outside and soft inside prawn mantis, dipped over the custard sauce was praised, and the two types of fish packed a massive punch. Both may have been cooked with different ingredients, though there were some common ones, both packed the same punch. Spicy and tangy. The big bold forever a must for Malaysians. On the contrary, crab was a let down. Not 100% though, we all wished for another additional doze of spiciness. Having said that, once everyone had satisfied their hunger, they did praise this dinner. So, I was not wrong. Don't ask me now how much we paid, I was later told that it was a bomb truly pricey bill.

Malaysian Sodhi (Indian Coconut Milk Stew)

Sodhi. Coconut milk infused and laced ( Shrimp Coconut Milk ) Indian coconut stew. In fact, sodhi is the branching of  Masak Lemak ( Vegetarian Malay Spinach Coconut Stew ), or vice-versa or whichever. Sodhi is definitely a popularity amongst the Indians and without a doubt, in my house as well. Sodhi is usually drenched over rice, and eaten alongside side dishes. Trust me, nothing like sodhi soaking or flooding up your rice and then, using your hands for mushy-mushy diving inside eating style. Sodhi. Like, every once a week in my house. In other words, a regularity and it is a dish that can be put up effortlessly. Needless to say, easy cooking and mind you, there are other variances of sodhi too, which I have already shared before ( Malu Kirata , Kiri Hodi , Prawn Sodhi & Cabbage Sodhi ). This latest sodhi? Basically, the humble, basic simplicity, but why a Malaysian Sodhi? Well, Cooked by this “The Crazy Lover” who is a typical, true and true Malaysian, and cooked in her, most o

Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry)

Look at this earthen pot and in it thick, salty, spicy and vibrantly exciting to our palates and eyes  Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry). Like immediately can trigger our hunger throne right? I know. I am definitely a big fan of this Indian style salted fish curry and salted fish on the whole by itself ( Spicy Ikan Bilis Potato , Sambal Tumis Ikan Bilis  &  Sambal Kentang Ikan Asin ), can drive me crazy because I so love saltiness. In fact, every day can be a salted fish meal day for me ( Salted Fish Pickle , Bean Sprouts Salted Fish  & Steamed Pork Salted Fish ). But, I think we all know it? Too much of saltiness and salt can ruin our health? Of course. Then again, there is such a thing as every now and then saltiness as our best friend? How do make this salted fish curry? Nothing much, no major confusing cooking matter ( Salted Fish Bone Curry ). My recipes as always will never cause you to struggle in the kitchen. Ingredients listed below

Restoran Orkid Thai - Section 9, Shah Alam

By the third day, Iphone 7 started showing its dark side. Really a terrifying-horrible shocking discovery, it kept rebooting every now and then for no apparent reason. Obviously, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Duh! Its a brand new phone I paid from  my savings ( Da De Bak Kut Teh Subang Jaya ), never ever have I encountered such a problem with my previous faithfully yours 6 year old Iphone 5. Absolutely heart wracking, I really couldn’t find the time ( Karaikudi Chicken Curry & Fikcles Cafe Taman Tun ) to rush to the service centre amidst the busyness of getting ready for the family wedding and another travel venture ( Oats Fried Prawn s ). Keeping my fingers crossed, hoping it’s just a minor teething problem, I went ahead with shopping nearby Plaza Shah Alam and Plaza Masalam. Accompanied by my niece, we bought a couple of things and then of course, naturally, shopping is more or less regarded as synonymous with hunger throne.
