Lunch At Restoran Floating Seafood Paradise, Penang.

This is a continuation of yesterday's post. You can click here if you are interested. We were travelling from Ipoh to Penang for our church's family camp. We stopped for lunch at Simpang Ampat, Penang. Our friends wanted to introduce us to this place because they have tasted the delicious food on their first visit.
I think an active golden horse is a good symbol for business (my guess). 
These steps lead us to the restaurant.
As we walked on the wooden floor, we could feel the gentle bobbing of the restaurant on the water. 
Choices of fresh, live seafood.
Top left - Cockles. Top right - Tiger prawn.
Bottom left - Catfish. Bottom right - Grouper fish.
Razor Clams.
I was not at the table when the dishes were ordered. Time to get back to the table. I am looking forward to enjoy whatever delicious seafood dishes ordered for lunch. Lol!
Fragrance fresh coconut water for everyone.
4 coconuts @ MYR 20 (approx. 4.69 USD).
Wow! The first dish to arrive - my favourite seafood is Crab!
2 big mud crab @ MYR 66 (approx. 15.49 USD).
The wood is for cracking the hard shell of the crab pincers if needed.
To eat these crabs, we have to use our hands. Its fingers licking good! 
Fried rice vermicelli @ MYR 10 (approx. 2.35 USD).
Steamed Lala clams with garlic, sour plum, chili, etc.
@ MYR 12 (approx. 2.82 USD)
I want to try making this dish at home. Yummy!
Oyster, egg omelette @ MYR 12 (approx. 2.82 USD).
Stingray fish + rice noodle (lai fun) in assam laksa gravy. Yums!
@ MYR 36 (approx. 8.45 USD)
Total cost of lunch incl. 6 % GST - MYR 165.40 (38.32 USD)
If you are interested, here is the address, contact number and business hours.
We enjoyed the food very much and we hope to return whenever possible.
When I went to wash my hands, I noticed some fishing boats on the other side of the fence.
I could smell the sea water. Not much activity going on at that time.
More fishing boats - couldn't get a clearer view because the gate was closed and branches were covering the view.
A feeling of appreciation came over me for these fishermen - without them, there will not be any seafood to enjoy.
Oyster shells drying in the sun.

The following photos were taken at the Gopeng Museum.
 An old fashioned bedroom with all the old antique furnishings.
A wooden bed with 4 posts to hang the mosquito net to keep out the pesky mosquitoes. These wooden furniture from the old days were made of good quality wood.


Men of God in days of old were famous for their faith.

By faith - by believing God - we know that the world and the stars -

in fact, all things - were made at God's command;

and that they were all made from things that can't be seen.

(Hebrews 11:2-3, The Living Bible-TLB)
