'Lok Lok' or translate that directly into English, Dip-Dip... it's a meal on a stick/skewer. Think of fondue... only instead of cheese or chocolate, its hot boiling broth where you can DIP your food on a stick to cook it, and later eat it accompanied with a variety of dipping sauces. The food are usually seafood related items such as fishballs, cuttlefish, squid, prawns, etc. Each stick of food are color coded to indicate the different pricing of the item on a stick. This is one of my favorite specialty food from home where I can 'play' with my food! :P
Ai Chun has the day off... a great apportunity for us to catch a matinee show. Superman Returns premiered today, one whole day before the US. I won't spoil the movie by devulging too much... but this is what I have to say.
Two extremely HOT guys and by far - my favorite Lois Lane ever... and most importantly, the scene where Superman had his costume off... be still my heart!!! Boy was he ripped!!! Ai Chun and I left the cinema salivating over Brandon Routh (Superman) and James Marsden (Cyclops)... and yes, Kate Bosworth is the prettiest looking Lois Lane... very much less annoying compared to the original Lois Lane - Margot Kidder. Overall, I think that Brandon Routh did a great job as Superman and he even looks similar to our original superhero-actor, the late Christopher Reeve.

One of the things I planned to do was a food-photo-journal to document all the yummy local dishes I have the chance to feast upon. Since I missed it with the dinner outing with Ai Chun, I will begin with the dinner outing tonight with Chee Eng. He brought me to a place right called Hammer Bay located right in front of the beach by the Gold Coast Condos and the soon to be opened Queen's Bay mall. We had grilled sting-ray and squid accompanied with Fried Maggie mee and Kampung style fried rice. See for yourself...

p.s: Nicky's camera shy.. gotta warm him up to Sher's picture taking craze!!
Back to Keith, well... he happened to be in Penang (work purpose) for a fews days which coincided with my arrival home in Penang and we managed to meet up for a very short duration before he had to drive back to KL. Since I was still trying to get reaquainted with driving on the left side of the road, mom and dad were my sole means of transportation. We brought Keith for a nice Sister's Char Koay Teow breakfast and headed to Him Heang for Tau Sar Pneah.
Both Keith and I are planning on meeting up again in KL soon as he is heading to Perth to finish up his degree. We last met like eons ago, therefore, since I happen to be in the same time zone as he is in right now, we might as well make the most out of time and geographic location to see each other before we head off our own ways.
It was great seeing you again Keith!!

Thanks to Chong Joon, I made my first attempt of driving in Penang.. it may have been a short drive home but it sure was encouraging to get behind in the wheel going through the motorcycle filled streets of my beloved island city. Thanks for having the confidence in me driving Joon *muaks...
p.s: Another camera shy one here! Leave it to Sher... ;P

The flight from NYC to Vancouver went well, I got all three seats to myself, so I got to sprawl out and some deserving snoozing session. Vancouver to HK was a over 12 hours long, but it went smoothly, no babies crying or loud snorers around.
I was in the Hong Kong International Airport for like a 7 hours layover which I spent walking to every corner of the airport terminals, finished reading one of my novels, had a ramen noodle breakfast, sushi for lunch and washed that down with a full class of Chardonay, chatted with a really nice Aussie who happened to be in a much longer transit time in HKIA rather than myself. Overall, it was a rather relaxing journey back home :D

As I was checking in with Cathay Pacific for my long segment of the flight home, I encountered very friendly and nice British Airways/Cathay Pacific personnels. They hooked me up big time with getting me exit row seats and best of all, British Airways Terrace Lounge use!! This was good news after being in a very LONG flight for such a short trip to NYC from Buffalo plus the delay in my next flight from NYC to Hong Kong via Vancouver. So here I am, enjoying and making use of all the First Class facilities the lounge has to offer: free refreshments, snacks, (not so sure about alcoholic drinks, but I sure can use one before the flight!), internet pcs, big sofa sets, etc.
Heading to devour some munchies now... HUNGRY!!!

The crew met up with Paul, Ted, Eloise "Weez" and Te'o (Mr. Dog) and headed to the finger lakes wineries yesterday. We started from the top of Seneca Lake and cut across to Keuka Lake before heading back to Pete's house. It was a sunny Saturday, a perfect day to be just outside in between wine tasting sessions paired with delicious cheeses.
