Penang Village @ IOI Mall, Puchong

A couple of sundays back the four of us had a quick meal at
Penang Village in IOI Mall Puchong.
We asked for the combination platter (additional order) to be served before
our main meal but everything come together!

Above: Combination Platter with pandan chicken, mango salad, loh bak
and pickled lotus root went down very nicely!

Dishes below are from the Menu B for 4 pax:

Below: Tomatoe rice (an add on to Menu B which DO NOT include rice!)

Below: Ice kacang (an add on at RM3.00 per bowl), normal price @ RM6.00 per bowl.

Below: this was how my aunt Karen eats her ice kacang. 
I eat mine like an ice cream sundae - a spoonful of ice with some cendol and bean at a time!

They should inform us before that the steamed rice or tomatoe rice are not included! Otherwise the food was ok lah!  Love the Combination Platter though!

Green As Usual

What tools I use for Being Green!

My reuseable totes for marketing, boxes to separate my trash - see how simple it can be. 
All kitchen scraps go into the lidded bin (plastic bag courtesy of DH sigh!)

Above: Bento #74 ~ Nasi Lemak from apartment cafeteria
Below: Bento #75 ~ Chinese mix rice from Ampang area

See? no wasteful packaging!
