My Mummy made wantan mee (translation : ‘mee’ means noodles in Chinese) with chicken soup for lunch (which is my brunch) today. I had 2 big bowls of wantan mee. Yes, I can eat a lot.
I love my Mummy’s cooking and she doesn’t cook lunch nowadays. She cooks dinner everyday so it’s a nice treat to get to have her food earlier on in the day. It’s healthy food.
Please excuse my voice in the video as I have stuffy nose from a cold for the past few days. I was sleeping for 12 hours (with some break in between) for 2 days. Much needed rest after working hard to finish off and deliver an order for event items customisation last week, then a bit of leisure time last Saturday to blog at the St. Paddy event.
If you want to see a bit about the event items I was customising, you can have a look at this link here. It is also Myle Enterprise’s 6th anniversary this month, so happy birthday to my lovely business, Myle Enterprise. If you need any events services, event planning, emcee or blogging about event matters, do keep in touch with me here or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m glad in a way that I can catch a cold as it means my body knows when to break down and repair internally instead of just pushing it to my skin. Apparently, skin is the biggest part of our organ that can eliminate toxins from our body. My skin is always inflamed and itchy, so I’m in pain everyday. In a way, I’m always sick. So now if I fall sick like catch a cold, it lets my body repair internally and also it’s making the unwanted toxins out like through phlegm. It’s like being sick for a while then I feel better and no pain rather than to feel pain everyday but have unwanted toxins inside.
I mentioned in my previous blog post that I drank alcohol. I made sure I drank a lot of water that night which help to keep me hydrated and my eyes were alright. Usually if I’m dehydrated, it will draw water from my eyes and make it swell or shrunk. With the weather being so hot in Penang (sometimes up to 40 degrees according to the weather report in my phone’s widget), even if I drink a lot of water, I still feel dry. I just drank some rehydration salt and I feel better. I have also started using my body lotion again and I apply my natural oils after I put on my body lotion, so it’s hydration with protection. My skin is looking much better now. Make sure you drink more water especially if you’re in warm countries and keep yourself hydrated.
At the beginning of this Year 2019, I was at Y Food Box at Gurney Drive to conduct an emcee/games session. Technically, I was there on New Year’s Eve (31 December 2018) and all the way until past 12 midnight so it’s considered the beginning of the year. 12am is when the fireworks go off right after the countdown and your brand new year begins on 1 January 2019, according to the Gregorian calendar.
So, this was what happened during the games session, which was recorded live on Facebook… (2 videos, Part 1 and Part 2 below).
For those who were there are the restaurant dining and those who came to see the games, I hope you enjoyed the emcee/games session. Thank you to those for participating and to Y Food Box for being the venue for, and for being a part of Myle Enterprise‘s PME December 2018 Giveaway event which was what the event/games session was about. I would like to say thank you to Y Food Box for this blog post too.
From New Year’s Day to Chinese New Year (CNY) day today, I’m sure many are having their CNY dinner now. Wishing you a Happy Chinese New Year. If you’re in Penang and looking for a place to eat or drink, you can check out Y Food Box at Gurney Drive. If you’re coming to Penang to visit your family, relatives, friends or for a holiday especially during this CNY season which lasts 15 days, you can visit their restaurant which I will leave their information below. They serve Chinese cuisine, mainly home-cooked style so it’s pretty healthy and delicious. I would advise you to call them before you drop by their restaurant to see if they are opened and to ask them more about their Chinese New Year menu, if they have any. They have other branches in Penang and around Malaysia too, which you can take a look at our previous blog post for more information.
I was at Mystery Village and did a live video. I was supposedly attending the Internations Penang event but I wasn’t there from the beginning and was there only after the event. There were still some people left from the organisation as well as those who came to see a Celtic band playing for the event, though many already left. It’s my first time at Mystery Village and so I went to check out the place as well as their food.
I was seated upstairs so just to let those of you who want to visit the place for the first time, you’ll be walking up a staircase and you might want to wear shoes/clothes that you’re comfortable walking up cement staircase with bamboo railing with open view so people sitting downstairs can see your bottom when you’re walking up and if you trip and fall on the stairs, there’s a chance of you rolling off, down into the open air space below as the bamboo railing doesn’t cover much of the stairways. The place is also kind of warm despite having air-cond and air coolers placed near tables but because it’s open air style, it’s blowing warm air with on and off cooling breeze. For those of you who like this kind of semi-open air, quaint, rustic environment set in an old building, then this is your place. Last time, I wouldn’t mind being in this kind of place to explore, not to stay for a long time though. However, now with my skin allergies, it’s definitely too hot for me and true enough, after going home, I have skin rashes and my skin broke open beneath my pants.
I was wearing Myle Enterprise’s CNY Hairband, which is customised and unique. You can see it in the video uploaded below. The hairband is also suitable for Valentine’s Day as it had a red flower with a cute little bear. Usually when you think of Valentine’s Day, you’ll think of chocolates, bears, hearts, red and those lovey dovey items. This year, Chinese New Year (CNY) is at the beginning of February and Valentine’s Day is about a week after that. Do check out the hairband at www.myleenterprise.com/shop.
I was just hanging out with those who were still there after the event. I let them try the Mystery Village’s chicken satay I had, which you can see in the video. I was told it was Batu Maung’s famous satay, which I haven’t tried before. Penang has a few satay places that are well-known and generally, all the food here is pretty much tasty if you’re talking about hawker kind of food. However, if you want to go in depth into how good the food is, texture, presentation… then I can be really fussy and criticise but on a usual day, in a usual environment, as long as I can bear it, then I’ll just let it be. The satay was slightly spicy and they don’t have a non-spicy version, which is what I think is not good as there are bound to be people like me who want to eat the non-spicy version. Their chicken meat was succulent though and the chicken was tender. I tried their Japanese food, which was salmon terriyaki set that comes with rice, salmon and coleslaw which they omitted the mayonaise upon my request. I liked it. Anyway, here’s the live video I took while I was there.
