Travelogue: Penang Short Stopover

I like to write at ease and with peace; I like to blog when I feel like it, with no obligations and personal datelines. Though at times, I understand that, in view of commercial datelines, I would need to push myself to go a little farther and complete it within a compressed timeline. 

So, when I realized that I was scurrying to finish up this part of my expired-travel post, I decided to stop and take a breather. Only resuming when I felt inspired to write again. By doing that, it would normally calm my flow of thoughts, as well as the words that comes through as well. 

Hence, from a short crusade in Hat Yai, Thailand, where you can read about Here, The drive from Hatyai to Penang took about slightly over 2 hours. But I'm excited - I'm continuing my food journey in Penang!

The food here needs no introduction. Having numerous food guides published thus far, and a dedicated weekend spread in the papers to boost, I'm going to make this a photo-log rather than a review-log. But of course, I've been to this part of the island numerous times in the past. But obviously acts like a tourist when I'm around - with camera in tact all the time.

1. Rather meager breakfast offerings at a Chinese coffee shop near Sungai Ara

2. The Famous Assam Laksa Air Itam

3. Chewy and Bouncy Mua Chee in front of Assam Laksa Air Itam

4. The picturesque Kek Lok Si Temple


5. Mural hunting at Armenian Street

 5. Early dinner at Gurney Drive

That pretty much sums up my one day trip in Penang. Despite the lack of time, I also sampled a couple of other popular local delights, like the infamous Ice Kacang, which didn't turn out as good as the hearsay. Will blog more about this tiny but amazing island in my next visit.
