Merdeka celebration

Taking a break from my Sydney post =)

I travelled North to Penang on National Day, with hubby and 3 more friends. The main purpose, karaoke session and makan makan!

 A lady friend joined us there. We were at Neway, QB mall

 Karaoke included free flow drinks, salad buffet and a set of lunch for each of us. Sang alot for complete 3 hours! (yea!)

As for dinner, we settled at a seafood restaurant called Hai Boey (direct translate: end of the sea), it's located at Bayan Lepas and took us about 10 mins to reach there.

 It was 5pm~

 Exactly by the beach. But the sea water is abit dirty though

 The restaurant is quite big, and not many people yet when we reached

 Yours truly

 Advanced touch screen monitor to take orders.....

And here's what we ordered:

 Signature fried eggplant with meat (RM9)

 Stir fry long beans (RM12)

 Steamed coral grouper (RM175)

 Steam tofu with minced meat (RM15)

 Curry prawns in coconut shell (RM20)

Total bill including drinks is RM269. Can't really judge it's cheap or expensive, as I know seafood in Penang is quite expensive.... But overall the food is nice, especially the curry prawns, the taste is unique. 

Here's the address for your information!
