Golden Triangle, Autocity

Golden Triangle interlinked 3 different countries which are Thailand, Vietnam and Laos. It used to be a famous place on opium producing/smuggling and other illegal activities here. Not too sure whether those activities still on going, but I won’t bother to find it out.

The Golden Triangle I’m going to talk about is nothing to do with opium or any other smuggler activities, its about a restaurant! It named Golden Triangle because they have some similarity in between. Both were also related to Thailand, Vietnam & Laos. Just that one is about opium and another one is about food. The restaurant offers famous foods from above mentioned 3 countries. That means you can tried 3 different tastes of food in 1 restaurant. Sound cool eh? Well, you may find the restaurant at Autocity, Juru, Penang. Next to Boston (又一城).

We went on last Thursday to celebrate on Khaisui’s Birthday. The restaurant’s environment are excellent, nice design and feel. The waiters/waitress were very friendly and helpful. We paid RM45nett per pax for a buffet dinner. Its not like those buffets you had in hotels, it has menu for you to choose and order. That’s mean foods were cooked only as requested. Kind of “Eat all you can” in ala carte style.  Anyway, its recommended to go in group, perhaps 4-8 persons, else you couldn’t taste all the dishes in menu.  Overally, this restaurant is Recommended to all, nice foods, reasonable price and good environments.

I managed to shoot a few pictures during the dinner.  Some photos weren’t sharp and some kinda blur. We ordered more than 10 dishes but I didn’t manage to shoot all. Sorry about that, was busy eating and the lighting kinda dark over there. 😛

Canton-i

BriPEx, is the largest Bridal & Photography Exibition in northern region which held at PISA, Penang. I wouldn’t have missed out since it labeled the largest ever exhibition. Well, it meant largest probably because it joint exhibition by those famous bridal houses and photographic equipment distributors at the largest arena in Penang. Advertisements and flyers were enough for this exhibtion to spread around, but it didn’t bring in big crowds as PC FAIR did. What a shame. Louis Pang speeches and tutorial talks seem not enough to attract crowds.

Ok, Now back to our topic Canton-i, I’m sorry to stuck at BriPEx above . I bring that up because we went Canton-i after the BriPEx. 😛 I’m not going to repeat what already had in other website about Canton-i. There are dozen of websites wrote about Canton-i by food blogger. Please search around yourself.

I’ll summurized it in short, Canton-i more to Hong Kong food, while Dragon-i more to Shang Hai food. And I personally prefered Dragon-i over Canton-i. Why? Simple, Canton-i is simply just another Hong Kong  Style Restaurent you can find in a shopping mall.  Anyway, Canton-i, nothing much to cheer about, but something to boo about, are the expensive price tag and so so food!  Definitely not worth what you have paid for! Please do try it yourself, so you’ll understand! 😀

By the way, they not allowed us to take photo of their surroundings, thought we might stole their designs or what! But, we still allowed to take photo of us and foods. Here it is!
