Japnese Golden Curry

Couple of weeks ago, we went to KLCC for a window shopping. Unexpectedly, there was a Japanese food fair. Spotted this Golden packing thingy which caught our eyes. Apparently, it was a Japanese curry powder in box from S & B brand. We always wanted to learn on how to cook Japanese curry. Without any hesitation, we grabbed one for a try. The price is quite affordable.

Although the packaging covered with Japanese words, we still managed to figure out the steps/instruction given with the images shown. :P

Very excited for our first attempt on cooking Japanese curry.  Let's start with the ingredient:
a) 1 Big tomato in cubes
b) 5-6 potatoes in cubes
c) Garlic 2 slices (optional)
d) 2 medium sized onion
e) 1 carrot in cubes
f) 3/4 chicken cut into pieces
g) Golden curry 4 packs
Note: 1 box consists of 4 packs (1 pack serves 2 pax)

Step 1: Fry onion and garlic become fragrant
Step 2: Add in chicken
Step 3: Add in tomato, potatoes, carrot 
Step 4: Stir fry until the chicken half cooked
Step 5: Pour in water until it cover up the mixture and add in Golden curry powder
Step 6: Stir well and leave it cook for 30mins

Right ~ Japanese curry chicken served with rice (You may serve with spaghetti, too)

Hmm, the taste is quite near to Indian curry flavour but it is not spicy at all. Suitable for those who couldn't stand with very spicy food. However, spicy lover might not appeal to it.

Refreshing Penang Trip

Approximately 5-hour-journey from KL, we finally reached our destination – Penang and straight away heading to our hotel, Berjaya Penang Resort

Our hotel room at 27th floor. Despite the environment around the hotel was like a residential area and unattractive, the interior was kinda cozy. 

First meal in Penang. Famous Char Kuay Teow with 3 big fresh prawns costs RM7 (Waited for 45min for this pricey CKT but it's quite delicious though). This stall is located in front of Heng Huat Cafe, Lorong Selamat. 

Got a few bottles of sesame oil from Ghee Heong. Love the adorable babies which standing around the house of Ghee Heong. The price of sesame oils are slightly cheaper than selling in KL.

We got up to Kek Lok Si temple and visited the newly built Guan Yin statue by a 2-Minutes-cable car-ride (RM4 for return ticket). You may opt to drive up to the hill and pay RM2 for car park,too. 

Colorful wishing tree near the Guan Yin statue. All you need to do is to grab a wishing ribbon by donating RM1 and write down your wishes and name then hang it on the tree :)

Here comes to the end of the refreshing 3D2N trip to Penang.
