I Love Yoo! 老油鬼鬼


It reminds me of a song by the Singaporean artist JJ Lin. When I first heard this song, I wonder do eat fried crullers with soya drink (that was long time ago). Yes, they do! At most time, I eat fried crullers with coffee, bak kut teh or porridge but this time it's soya!

I Love Yoo! 老油鬼鬼 @ Sunway Pyramid

Fried crullers, Fried Bun & Butterfly Bun @ RM 1.40 each piece
Don't underrate the humble crullers and buns, this crispy and savoury, plain or stuffed fried dough can be consumed plain but taste good with soya bean milk too.

Tau fu far (bean curd) dressed with sweet syrup @ RM 3.20 & soya bean @ RM 2.90

Dunk the crullers in and take a bite. Taste good! The soya is not sweetened , but the combination of the both goes along well and smooth! As for the tau fu far (beancurd), the outlet at Pavillion are much better

Besides fried crullers and fried buns, I Love Yoo! serves sesame ball, yam ball, sweet potato ball and porridge too. Well, it's a good try and here is a song for everyone!

ABOUT PENANG


Penang or better known as Pulau Pinang (Penang Island) is a state in Malaysia. Penang is an island in South East Asia, located on the Northwestern coast of Peninsular Malaysia. The name Pulau Pinang is the Malay name for Penang which literally means "Island of the Betel Nut Tree". By other name, Penang is also known as Pearl of the Orient.

The island and the mainland are linked by the Penang Bridge, which is once the third longest bridge in the world. The consturction of bridge was completed in 1985 and officially opened to traffic on 14 September 1985. The Malaysian Federal Goverment has approved the proposal of Penang Second bridge and the construction began in November 2008 and the targeted completion year of construction would be in Year 2012.


Initially, Penang was part of the sultanate of Kedah state and the island was known as "Pulau Ka-satu" (First Island). Until 1786, Captain Francis Light, (founder of of the British Colony of Penang) sailed to Penang and built a fort at Georgetown and ceded the island to the British East India Company. Then, together with Malacca and Singapore, the island becomes one of the British Straits Settlement.

In 1786, the island was renamed to the "Prince of Wales Island" to celebrate the Prince of Wales birthday. But, the name was soon forgotten and the new town was to be known as Georgetown (named in honour of King George III)- the capital City of Penang.
