The stay in Penang revolved a lot around food. Just for variety, I decided to take some touristy shots of the place. Here are the results.
These were taken in an inner-city bar which has a very colonial feel to it. Can’t remember the name of it. On the night, Choy asked me where did I want to go. I said any place that served beer and has girls for me to look at. By sheer coincidence, we walk into this bar and they had a Miss Tourism Penang pageant going on. Bonus!
The ppl that went. Left pic, from back to front: Choy, my cousin Shane’s girlfriend Su-Fern, my brother Marvin and I. Right pic, that’s my cousin Shane.
Later that night, we headed to a mamak stall for some nasi kandar. Enroute we saw this very beautiful colonial era building. And the food. OMG, I’m drooling just thinking about it. To wash it down, we had teh-tarik. Woo.
The next day we headed into town to collect my new passport, and what else but more food.
This is a HK-style restaurant inside Gurney Plaza that we went to for brunch, which I thought was quite well decorated.
Then as we drove into town and later walked around, I took these touristy shots.
After we picked up my passport, we headed for a late lunch at the famous Swa Tow Lane. It’s a cluster of stalls around a back road. Famous for the curry laksa, or curry mee, ice kacang and cendol.
I had some hokkien mee as well. And yes the stand is right above a storm drain. In a tropical country, you gotta get use to that. 😉
The next day we would be going to Langkawi – the last leg of my 2005-2006 holiday.
