Before I added water, in a pot, I stir fried some anchovies. Next I added water till the pot was half filled. When it started to boil, I added in the crabstick, tofu, shitake mushrooms. When the food was cooked, I added the seaweed last and let it boil a little more at medium heat.
The miso paste was added in last.
on top of the miso soup, i prepared some otah, stir fried broccoli and hubs air-fried miso salmon
Godma came to visit. She read a book to James.
and Godma bought many cream puffs from Chateraise.
We were in Penang Malaysia for the School Holidays, mainly to attend a colleague's wedding but since it has been such a long time since I last visited Penang, we decided to bring the whole family for some quick getaway.
The weather was scorching hot but it made poolside activities all the more enjoyable! I'm now tidying up all the photos and will backpost our short but awesome trip.

Fortunately, checking in was a breeze! The hotel rooms looks pretty new. I heard they just renovated last year, or rather opened last year. But this hotel was situated in a really odd place, smacked in the middle of a residential precinct. The closest mall was Aeon Mall but we had to get a Grab to bring us there.
At Aeon Mall where the kids had KFC for lunch.
KFC Malaysia serves Sweet Mustard sauce for nuggets! How interesting.
Bought bubble tea for myself... I'm always in search for a good cup of bubble tea!
snacks for the kids while they stay in the hotel room
The bride! Her rainbow bouquet of dried flowers were done by one of our colleague!
First march in, the bride in an emerald green gown, looking very regal indeed.
scroll down to see what we had for the chinese dinner...
And that's the finale to our Penang trip in Malaysia. Too hot to truly enjoy Penang for what she really is and too short a trip to be relaxed. Hopefully we can come back another time when the weather is more palatable and probably on a longer time since there's so much good food here in Penang to be explored!
so folks, avoid Penang during March cos it's too hot.

It's our last day here at Hard Rock Hotel Penang...and it's been a really scorching sunny afternoon.
I brought many different sunblock lotions for the kids from spray to liquid form and even for babies. So they came in pretty useful, just a reminder to all mums out there, to remember to re-apply again cos after so much wet fun out there, the lotions starts to come off. At the end of our trip to Penang, regardless of the reapplication, the boys and girl had a tanned but luckily not a sunburn!
rites. Will try tonight to edit some photos of our sightseeing adventure in Penang.
