We’ve done it! Though he didn’t run… at least I manage not to yield to my son by carrying him at all 🙂

Lunch @ Penang Place

Today, I started trying out a new way to take buffet pictures. Instead of photographing the food as the way they were laid out for diners, how about preparing them on my plates instead. Nice try but lots of room for improvement.

Penang fried kway teow. This dish is very popular. The moment the tray is topped up, its emptied within moments.

Simple lunch @ West Coz Cafe

I had a simple set lunch at West Coz Cafe. 4 people, 2 sets and 6 dishes from 3 categories: side dishes, vegetables and fish/meat. Nice and not too expensive.

Visit to the Lee Kong Chian National History Museum

This place is very near my office and I went down during lunch time. I must confess I’m not a museum person. Each visitor is given 1.5 hours… I’m already bored before 30 minutes… oops.

The famous Rafflesia without its infamous smell.

And the bones are what mainly attracts me today.

I particularly like the last one, it seems to one of the insects that inspires those science fiction aliens that attacked earth.
