29-03-2015 Bong & His Trip to Penang Part 8 (Penang Food & Gurney Drive)

One of the famous things about 
Penang island
is certainly its delicious food~
Therefore I have ordered different food 
every single meal
just for Arne to try all of them out~
Well this is Ais Kacang
(means Ice with nuts)
Then he also tried 
"Cuttle fish with convolvulus"
When it was served,
it looked like that...
But you must fix everything together with the sauce~
to make it looks like that....
Next was this chinese "Yam Cake"..
Well, it is not really a cake,
but Google translate says it is cake...
so... =)
Arne was kinda scared to try fried oyster at first...
(because he doesn't like oyster)
but after he tasted it,
it wasn't as 'oysterish' as he expected it to be...
so that was kinda good~
Last but not least is Mua Chi~
It means sesame...something, 
they are like chinese sasame cake being cut into small pieces~
Well Arne LIKED it!
By the way, there were more food that 
he had tasted in this Penang trip~
and some I have posted in the previous posts~
That night we had our dinner at the food court
at Gurney drive actually~
Gurney drive is a popular place
where people go dating...
or just go for a walk in the evening~
We walked from Gurney Drive
back to our hotel,
which took us about 40 minutes~
Though it was really a long walk,
it was still very much relaxing and enjoyable to Arne!

25-03-2015 Bong & His Trip to Penang Part 7 (From LOVE lock to Mamak)

At Penang Hill,
there is also this new spot
like they have it in Paris and South Korea
'The LOVE lock'~
It was nice to have a couple of cold drinks
while sitting on top of the hill~ 
Not to forget,
a 'typical' tourist picture before we left this lovely place~
We took a bus and went back
to George Town area...
At that time, 
we were already kinda tired..
and hungry~
Then I suggested Arne
to try out Malaysian Mamak food!
Arne with teh tarik~
"It is really good...."
He also tried Mee Goreng Mamak
(Mamak style fried noddles)
but he didn't like it so very much~
And lastly,
mamak food that he can never missed~
Roti Canai (Indian pancake)
There is this 
Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Centre 
near to where our hotel locates...
but we were both not so very interested
in history stuffs...
we just headed back to hotel
and enjoyed some good time at swimming pool~

20-03-2015 Bong & His Trip to Penang Part 6 (Penang Hill)

After taking speedy train ride for less than 5 minutes,
we were already at 712 meter above sea level..
the view was simply breathtaking~
You can see both
Penang Bridge and Penang Second Bridge from the hill~
and not to forget,
how high population densities Penang Island is!
Besides beautiful views,
Penang hill is also a place where people can enjoy some flora scenes...~
National flower,
and this unknown yet special flower...
Of course,
there is more to see at Penang Hill~
We did walk around and 
go to places such as temple and the viewing deck,
but not places below such as Paris (13,783 km)
or Mumbai (6,154 km)
It was Arne's first time
seeing an indian temple up close~
See how beautiful
the sculptures of the indian temple are~
Very detailed..
and colorful~
There was also a mosque 
but we didn't visit it~
