Indonesia-Penang Trip IX

1 June 2014
Theatre-themed Warung and The Bomb

After the whole shopping frenzy, it was time for lunch. We went to this warung that was themed like a theatre, 60s 70s kind of theatre. And there were posters describing known Indonesian celebrities. Other than that, there was a screening going on in the middle of the warung with theatre-like step seats. Surrounding it were some small stalls as explained to imitate how stalls used to park around the theatre during the old days.

The dish were served out like mixed-vege style, only in Indonesian/Malay-like cuisine. We get to pick what we want and how much we need and get it calculated at the cashier.

The plates looked so old-school. My aunt has these in her house and I prettymuch ate using these for my whole primary and secondary school. And these are the regular beverage menu there too!

After picking here and there, we finally gotten five plates and feast on them. Most of them were very nice and were cooked with enough spices. 

We tried the concau here. There were two kinds of cincau. One was similar to what we drank in Malaysia and Singapore. Another one was cincau hijau, which gave a more grassy smell. However, the drink was rather refreshing and I think it is quite acceptable.

After the meal, we were drove to a roadside stall that sell these legendary chips. They were THE BOMB. Came with level 3, 5 and 10, according to its spiciness, I think level 3 was too mild while 10 was quite a challenge. This time, we were just trying our first time.

According to our local friend, this brand was started by this lady Ma Ichi who sell her chips on these small stalls and later scaled up. It sounds cool!

Can You Land The TARDIS?

BBC Doctor Who came up with an online game, a short one, for some entertainment I supposed. It is a very simple manouver game on guiding the TARDIS through time vortex and finally showing it landing on Earth, not a very smooth one. After that, it will unlock a new content, which turned out to be a short snippet of the episode "Listen" which will be out soon.

The link is here and have fun!

Battling Alone

This piece was originally a trash, or a sketch. I found this piece of unwanted cardboard in the office and decided to just doodle on it. I reflected on how our everyday was to go against odds and battle our way to survive. Not that our life is hard, but that there's something worth fighting for. However, many of the times, there are things we could fight alongside with our friends and family. There are, however, things that only ourselves could go through. Others can only do so much. And these are the times when it is testing and challenging us. Fear not as we battle alone. Take a rest, and battle again. Hence, this piece. It's like a little moment when one take a break from a long time battle, and decided to get a quiet time somewhere, which is pretty much what I do most of the time. Drew this using a black pen and I was surprised by the effect.
