Red:The Ship Steak House @ Batu Ferringhi, Penang

Photo: The Ship, Steak house at Batu Ferringhi, Penang.

About 10 years ago, we drove up from Singapore to Penang. We had a lot of fun , the second daughter went on a para sail, and we drove past this ship a few times.

We ate once at a small eatery where the seafood was very delicious and the boss friendly. He showed us his wall, where instead of wall paper were photos of him and various celebrities. We joked, may be he would have a photo of me. My kids joked, who knows, one day, one of us could be famous.

One night, the water engineer, then the professor, felt luxurious and shouted us to this restaurant. The kids enjoyed this almost life-size hull. It gave an illusion of a real sea going ship, of when Christopher Columbus sailed the ocean.  I ordered T-bone steak to the memory of my late friend Ting Wah Teck who introduced me to this cut of steak when he took me and my girlfriends to Aurora Hotel in Kuching.

I asked many friends who didn't know about it. I was delighted vis Danny Wong, Christine posted this photo for me. Just right for this meme. Thank you Christine for the photo and memories.
