The last few evenings have been very exciting for me. I got to spend one of the evenings in Dell and this being my first visit, I have to say I’ve a great time and totally enjoyed it!
It was a warm, welcoming to the Dell DRC Shutterbugs weekday meeting where I’ve been invited to speak about the aspect of food blogging and photography. It was great seeing such a club formed where its members shared their absolute love for the beautiful world of photography and knowledge with each other.
It was great getting to pose with all the shutterbugs!

Most Penangites would have heard or tried the famous night-time Duck Koay Chiap in Kimberley Street, Penang. It is a stall by the roadside located just a few shops down from Restaurant Goh Huat Seng. The proprietor, Mr Por has been been serving Koay Chiap for almost twenty-nine years in this usual selling spot. For over the span of three decades, Mr Por has insisted on using local ingredients, while preparing everything himself. Ranging from the Koay Chiap to the stewed duck to the chili sauce, everything is prepared by him and has remained his trade secret all this while.

During the Peranakan
days, it was a trend for the nyonyas to wear beaded shoes. Most of them learn to sew it themselves and they work with the tiny colourful size beads know as the manek potong. Sewing a pair of beaded shoe is time consuming. From my experience it is tedious and can be strenuous on the eyes too. Nowadays those sold in the shops are usually made up of the larger size beads which are cheaper and easier to work with.
For all my beads handy craft work, I prefer to use the smallest size beads because the finishing product looks more elegant. To start off, I have to choose a design, colour of the beads, specified needles, thread and a frame. The frame is require to hold the cloth tightly which makes sewing much more easier.
The photo below shows the design of a bird and flowers which is from the nyonya era therefore my choice of colour for the beads have to follow the theme. It took me three months to complete it. I have yet to make it into a pair of shoe which can be easily done in the famous Hong Kong Shoe store located in Lebuh Muntri.
Below are modern design bead work tops/cover which were already made into pair of shoes. The shoes in the center and left photos were made using the smaller beads, while the pair on the right uses the larger size beads.
Bead works handy craft can also be made into pouches – for storing hand phone, tissue and even card holder. Some designs can be frame up and hang on the wall too. Will blog more on these in the coming days…..
