……………………………………

Our first stop was to discover the best spot for Penang breakfast, we went to Macalister road.

I just love Penang prawn paste, it’s like no need money wan. They kasi a lot in their food. Penangite may not aware of it but No-need-Money-Kasi-A Lot-Prawn-Paste is a Penang signature thing.

#1 Best Breakfast in Penang – Discover the best breakfast place

It’s so hard to take this photo as the lady boss refused to pause for me T3T.

……………………………………

Next stop is to capture something that resemble Penang. At first we thought of NOT capturing Komtar because we think everyone will do that. What else that makes us think of Penang when we sees it. Our first thought is Ferry. Only Penang has such Ferry and I think no one would took the effort to go all the way to Sberang Prai for this challenge.

but in the end, I posted a shot of Street Hawker Stall as I feel Hawker Street Culture is Penang. Without it, Penang is not Penang. The amount of stalls by the street in Penang is amazing. In Kuching, such culture is abolished where all stalls are force to move to food centres.

#2 Penangness – Resemble Penang

……………………………………

 

To save cost, we decided to take buses, but we ended up lost in our way. Thank God, we met this auntie, she guided us around on where to take, where to drop off and even told us where we can find good food, and share some stories about a certain places.

#3 Penang Essentials – Guide for tourist visiting Penang for food and heritage trail

That’s when I noticed, actually the best guide for food and places to have is actually a Penangite.

……………………………………

For this challenge, I bet many would take a lot of the mainstream tourist spots. XD I thought that maybe we can do something different but what. We roamed clueless-ly along the street on our way to our lunch spot.

Then I noticed…

…that actually the whole city is a heritage. Those old buildings and those old shops that operate as how they were back in the old days tell so much stories. You can see how simple the old clinic with just partitions and fans and a grocery shop with milo tin as money collector.

#4 Heritage Trail

……………………………………

We then brought to this factory hidden behind some shops.

It’s a Nyonya kuih factory…

with a restaurant at the back that serves many Nyonya food.

We were for one thing. Assam laksa with Popiah. I heard it’s a very Penang way of eating Assam Laksa.

#5 Eat Penang Style

And oh my, it goes so well together. I’m so gonna do this next time when I’m having my Assam Laksa.

……………………………………

It’s my fourth time visiting Penang and I always discover new things there especially this time where I did most of the travel on foot and skipping the main POI.

In the end, we did not win the challenge but I did went back Kuching with a trophy.

A big trophy. What to do, Penang food is really amazing.

Thank God we have a direct flight from Kuching, can go whenever I want to fix my Penang food cravings.

Miao at Red Light District??

and I have totally no idea. :/

Lucky my inn was a decent one but sometimes it would be best to ask your local friends before you decide where to stay. XD It might cause some misunderstanding among your friends.

Which reminds me of this incident at Marina in Singapore. Me and my friends was in the hotel lift and discussing where to go and there was this staff in the same lift with us.

  *Lift opens*

  *Hotel staff walks in*

  Friend A: Which floor?

  Hotel Staff: 40th, please.

  Friend A: Okay.

  *press 40 and 42* (We stayed at the 42th floor)

  Miao: Where are we going later?

  Friend A :  Geylang. (Famous for the Frog Porridge)

  Miao: Go there for what?

  Friend B: What else. (it was dinner time and was complaining about how hungry he is before we entered the lift)

But the staff who happened to ear dropping somehow misunderstood since “Geylang” is also the Red Light District. She was stoned and  actually missed her floor and went to the same floor with us.  XD hahaha..

She went back into the lift when my friend corrected her. XD  

Told you sometimes people might misunderstood. 

Oh, i book my stay through HostelWorld. It comes with reviews and ratings. 🙂 Pretty neat and sometimes book online through here is cheaper than the booking through the main hostel/inn site. 🙂

Penang Trip: To the Sea

Like most of the cats, I’m afraid of water. :/

I will have cold sweat whenever I’m surrounded by waters. It doesn’t matter I’m on a big cruise ship, sampan or even across the bridge. If I have 80% of deep water around me, my hands will start sweating XD.

Then again, I like water activities XD like pretending to swim, water slides etc as long as I can touch the bottom of the pool hahaha… I remembered I almost drown to death twice before in the pool when I accidentally swam to a deeper area.  😛

Anyway, here’s some photos from Penang. 🙂

All taken with Samsung Galaxy S2 with 360 Camera App (Vintage mode) as my DSLR lens die off  that day 🙁

Ferry!

The Jetty

Kek Lok Si Temple

Kong Kongsi

Random shots

Nyonya house

Food! Just some of them. The others I finished before I get the chance to take a photo of them. XD

Thanks to my buddy Scorpionade, boss BossMeow and her boss and the awesome photographer, Nix for the company over the two days 🙂 Awesome place. Might revisit it again somewhere in near future with my family 🙂
