Penang cafe restaurant hygiene – Komatta. Big dead fly buried inside toufu hot plate at YY corner cafe in Sg. Ara. Lady boss didn’t apologize nor did she show an apologetic attitude. Common to her dishes there ? Poor attitude and hygiene consciousness being the front line cafe restaurateur. Offering low end restaurant meals do not mean guests need to eat buried dead insects n to pay/accept such plate naturally. Probably she n her staffs do so happily, hence the reaction ??
For sure, that’ll be my last. Be sure to watch what you are putting into your mouth. That tofu producing shop should be checked/monitored n hope that the cafe restauranteur did pass on the bad tofu.
Having just recovered from low days health-wise, enjoying my favourites one at a time. Missed out on several favourites with such schedule but rather be careful than sorry. Had herbal medication that helped a lot too without the side effect. Got to enjoy my favourite pork soup noodle bowls a few times this trip but passed over laksa to avoid upsetting a nice recovered stomach.
Managed to enjoy swimming n golfing, pacing up stamina so that muscles won’t suffer shock. Hii……… Hii……… Hii……
Grace was with us as bad level of haze hasn’t flown by the island. Saw nice clear skies 80% of our stay.
We visited 3D trick art museum that has nice history display n collection. Enjoyed every aspect of the museum, especially a re-read of history. May human race learns well from history. Finally got to visit an old, old church since colonial days. The caretaker was a soft, yet tough gentleman, took some nice photo shots for my mom n I.
We read some on the spot news of a missing then found murdered top government official who until recently led a probe into the investigation of “disappeared” money from 1MDB account. How embarrassing for the government who still cannot clarify where the money has gone ! Pity the Malays majority who usually benefited a lot from the government fund !
Then there is the puzzling demonstration for the ‘benefit of Malay’, though none of their special benefits are being called to be forfeited by anyone, including the additions made since such right began. How easily can peace be threatened. How easy to fall into trap of pride n greed. May the smarter group wins over those unnecessary demonstrators. What a waste of development made to this day.
GOLF – Managed to play 4 rounds of golf, having arrived about a week earlier. Tried Harvard GCC, Mountain View GCC, Penang GCC. Still Penang GCC is the favourite of all, usually ended up playing there the most too. Sadly though recently, at times, the credit card machine is not working well n cash is being requested. Big ouch indeed when cash is not carried these days, who would. It’s 21st century after all.
Harvard GCC has great course n green maintenance. The setback would be the changing room, especially with not working locker keys n tiny storage locker. The office managing the locker is not close to the changing room, hence changing/findiy a working locker n key would be quite a nightmare. Same goes for the men’s as well. Mountain View has much better changing room but not as well maintained course.
