Belated Mother’s Day Dinner @ Perut Rumah, Kelawai Road

20140630-205732-75452951.jpgI’m really happy Aun Ling recommended this place to me. Very seldom do we find good nyonya food and great atmosphere here in Penang. Decided to bring mum here for a belated Mother’s Day treat. She loves Chinese/local food anyway. And it was a good decision to try out this place cause she loves it!  🙂 And for the record, I love it too!20140630-205735-75455524.jpgWe ordered about 4 different dishes and they were all delicious. This place has now become quite a favourite for both my mum and I. 🙂

First up, we had the ‘Kapitan Curry Chicken’. 20140630-205736-75456920.jpgThis were utterly yummy. The chicken was tender and well cooked. The curry was thick and rich in flavour. No complaints at all. Seriously.

We also ordered the ‘Jiu Hu Char’. 20140630-205739-75459654.jpgThis place is the first place I went to that serves this dish with a separate dish of green veggie leaves. Great idea if you asked me. The dish mixed with rice? Yummy. The dish wrapped in the veggie? Delicious!

And a must try at any nyonya restaurant is the ‘Lor Bak’. 20140630-205742-75462998.jpgThankfully, the ‘Lor Bak’ here didn’t disappoint. As a matter of fact, it was seasoned so perfectly, mum and I actually ordered a second helping. Yes. We did. It was delish! 😀 This has now become our ‘regular dish’ every time we have dinner there. 🙂

Just to top it off, we ordered the ‘Otak-otak’. 20140630-205745-75465776.jpgThis comes in small ‘1-person serving’ packet, and by packet, we mean wrapped in leaves. Even though this is not the best ‘otak-otak’ I’ve had, it’s still pretty good. Personal opinion, as good as it is, it’s a step behind the other dishes in taste. That, like I mentioned, is just my personal opinion. 🙂

Overall, I love the place. 20140630-211607-76567753.jpgGreat food, nice ambiance, pretty good service and pretty easy parking (it’s actually a bungalow with its own carpark). And best of all, mum loves the place! Only the best for my mum! 🙂20140701-154348-56628375.jpg

 

Super Stoked!

20140630-223049-81049229.jpgFINALLY. A couple months back, I finally got the guts to buy myself a pair of drumsticks and enrolled myself to a drums class. Haha! I’ve always thought drummers are soooooo cool! And any females who play drums is pretty much awesome. Most of them anyway. Haha! Anyway, unlike the other instruments I play, drums is a little harder for me to pick up. Hence the need for proper classes instead of picking it up bit by bit like I did with the piano, bass and guitar. Those are melodic. They’re simpler, as compared to drums which goes solely on beats and groove. But I am super stoked! I hope by year end, I’m at least good enough to play some of the simpler songs well, as well as being able to improvise whenever I need to. 🙂 Fingers crossed!
