Saturday That Was...

Was not in my usual self when I woke up Saturday morning. Going about my chores later on, I decided to 'mogok masak' for Iftar that evening. Called hubby and he decided on nasi beryani Hameediyah. I know, I know...lagi lagi Hameediyah! So, after Zohor, it was off to the island...yippie!

The pictures you are about to see here are not edited...ahkak manyak fenat....and malas....and mengantuk tahap gaban....and....'tak sihat'. Sambil-sambil tu nyanyi ler lagu *Rob Thomas: I'm not crazy I'm just a little unwell...I know right now you can't tell...But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see, A different side of me....*
Hehehehehe

From Chulia Street, where Hameediyah is situated, I thought it would be nice for a change to venture into Little India. It has been years since I last stepped foot around this area where the Indian Muslims (and non) businesses thrive. Come let's check out what I found...

 After circling twice around the block, only then we managed to get a parking space...
 As it is still early....the place was not crowded at all...
Sweetmeats for iftar...I just bought two coconut candies for MyC...
Anyway, it isn't nice to poke your head at someone's stall, 
take some pictures and walk away...no? hehehe

Took this picture while the mamak scooping out 
mutton kurma for my extra dish...
Another nasi kandar outlet rumoured as the best...
Tajuddin Hussain - remember the name guys! hehee

Colourful 'sarbat campur'
Couldn't resist....haishh

It was really another walk down the memory lane driving along Downing Street later, on our way back to the jetty.

I felt a twinge inside me that I could not comprehend...every time I see this place....



 ....and....never mind! hehe

...that is why, I find it hard to leave the island 
at about every trip I make...
*jiwengs at her best!* hikhikhik

Selamat Berbuka Puasa! ;)

I tak pernah jejak ke Penang tapi somehow I dapat rasakan dlm kalbu Penang tu serupa Spura jer. Not Spura skrng nih tapi Spura once upon a time!
