Traffic on that day is very smooth and reaching Ipoh at 9:00 am for our Dim Sum breakfast at Foh San restaurant, although is weekdays the crowd is still there and is almost full house but no need to wait for queue.

I’m going to Penang next Thursday (17-04-08) with my wife for holidays and food finding. Anyone have any nice food to recommend, please feel free to drop some and i will try it out.

This will be our second time stepping into Penang as first visit was on year 2003.I miss some of the food there especially Asam laksa, fried Oyster (ho chian) and etc. How does the Penang name come from? this is what i found in wikipedia

 The island was referred to as 檳榔嶼 (Bīnláng Yù) in the navigational drawings used by Admiral Zheng He of Ming-dynasty China in his expeditions to the South Seas in the 15th century. Early Malays called it Pulau Ka-Satu or “First Island”.

The name “Penang” comes from the modern Malay name Pulau Pinang, which means island of the betel nut tree (Areca catechu), family Palmae. In Chinese, Penang is known as 檳城 (pinyin: Bīnchéng / Bīngchéng; Hokkien: Peng Sheah). All three names can refer either to the island of Penang, the state of Penang or sometimes the state capital, George Town.

More specifically, George Town is known as Tanjung in Malay and 喬治市 (Qiáozhì Shì) in Chinese. Penang Island is simply Pulau Pinang (/’pulaʊ ‘pinaŋ/) in Malay and 檳榔嶼 (Bīnláng Xù) in Chinese, and Penang state is Negeri Pulau Pinang in Malay and 檳州 (Bīn Zhōu) in Chinese.

I will post all the photos and all the food we taste when we back…stay tuned.

Free Zone Cafe

Last friday after work we go for happy hours with my colleauge at Free Zone Cafe in Kuchai Entreprenuer’s Park. We had our dinner there also and the food there taste not bad too. As we reach, there was not much people and only 2 tables occupied at the first floor. We get our seat at the entrance as there is much cooler with the breeze wind coming in.

I order their recommended Tom Yam fried mee hoon with seafood, Lun order Japanese Ramen with Chicken chop and Kevin order the Tepanyaki Chicken with rice.

Below is the photo of the food we ordered.
