As a continuation of my camera review for the Samsung ST600 model, the following are pictures that I have taken with this camera. All of them were not Photoshopped/modified but only resized to ease loading. Most of the pictures were taken during my recent trip to Penang, and as you could see, mostly revolved around food. *LOL*
1. Breakfast in Restoran Mawar Gembira, Taman Kinrara
This was taken from our usual breakfast place, very close to where we stay. It has the biggest portion of chicken rice I’ve ever had in Klang Valley, for only RM4 (plain chicken). The portion of chicken given was also large and the rice very fragrant. Saucer’s pick would be the bitter gourd noodles, also with plenty of bitter gourd and pork for only RM4.50.

2. Lunch at Canton-i, Queensbay Mall
Had lunch with my friend Chiao Ju here, since I was craving for roasted goose. But sadly, they don’t sell individual portion of roasted goose with noodles. So I had to change my order to Roasted Pork wantan noodles.

Of course, one should not miss having their famous egg tarts here. Flaky pastry and smooth egg, not runny enough though.
3. Dinner at Lang Sae Lee Thai Food, Tan Jetty Penang
We had dinner at the Tan Jetty Thai Food, situated just by the sea. The view at dusk was pretty amazing, save for the slightly unpleasant smell from the sea. Pictures below taken with Auto mode, no modifications done.

I absolutely loved the Claypot crab with Glass noodles here. The gravy was really flavourful and the crab was huge and fleshy. Yum!

For the shot below, I had to use very steady hands since the shutter speed was longer to capture picture in dim condition. This was the best that I managed, at least the lights were not blurry. And yes, the moon that night was THAT huge!

4. Supper at Haagen Dazs
I know, I know, we really can eat huh! *LOL* I told you, we stayed at Eastin Hotel, which was just walking distance to Queensbay Mall. So we couldn’t stop our legs from bringing us there when we had cravings for ice-cream! *LOL*

5. Next day Lunch at Chou Shun Kan, Krystal Point Penang
Lunch was with ex-colleagues again, this time heading for Korean food. Since their lunch was only limited to one hour, I didn’t opt for BBQ set. Instead, I ordered Bibimbap!

6. Dinner at Victoria Station, Bayan Baru Penang
We visited this restaurant once before when I was still working in Penang. I couldn’t forget the taste of their sizzling steak! So that was what I ordered the second time around.

7. Dinner at Soon Lai Seafood Restaurant, Greenlane Penang
This was dinner on another day in Penang, with our good friend Wai Lian. He brought us to this hidden gem at Greenlane called Soon Lai, famous for its seafood. My favourite dish here though, was the Roasted Pork Knuckles! It was simply amazing! The skin was crispy, but the layer of fat underneath was melt-in-your-mouth smooth, plus the juicy meat at the bottom – perfect combination!

8. Dinner at Bella Italia Restaurant, Bellisa Row Pulau Tikus, Penang
This is easily my favourite Italian restaurant in Penang! It’s also the place that I usually chose to go during special occasions (Valentine’s, birthdays), so a trip to Penang would never be complete without stopping by here!

I never fail to order seafood marinara pasta whenever I dine here. It’s simply a must to me! The gorgeous sauce, the giant and succulent prawns and a variety of other seafood – they just captured my heart from the very first time.

9. Pan Mee at Cha Cha Restaurant, Aman Suria
This was the last batch of pictures taken with the Samsung ST600, when we have returned to KL. We visited Cha Cha Pan Mee at Aman Suria, which is Saucer’s favourite pan mee.
