I went to Penang for a short getaway early this year! It was my first time there and to be honest I wasn't expecting much, but it was quite relaxing. There are quite some bit of photos so I'm splitting them into two posts, this will be mainly the food/shopping post!
#1 Dinner first night, nothing spectacular but it was pretty interesting since we were at a roadside stall and it was nothing like what we have at Singapore.
#2 Mango pudding! It's just at some random food court but the amount of mango was so generous.
#3 Dinner, day 2. Noodles, ham, wiener and chicken wing in some random eatery.
#5 More random dinner night, this was third, I think? Tiniest fried ebi I've ever seen.
#6 But they had pudding!
#7 /cue Giga Puddin' song
#8 On the last day we visited this old school-ish kopitiam.
#9 There was just this one stall selling noodles.
#10 And the noodles? Best I've tasted and they were only instant noodles.
#11 The lady apparently cooks it with broth made from pork bones so it's incredibly rich.
#12 Gotta have my old school milo peng and toast.
#13 Late night supper cos we just had to have bak ku teh. And we ended up having it for like the next 2 nights or so.
#14 Last day's dinner.
#15 Dumpling soup that I really liked, it was very light and the dumpling was very plump with fresh minced pork and prawn.
#17 French beans and a pretty unique carrot cake.
#18 Some of my loot from Penang. They had surprisingly 'decent' shopping, not incredibly cheap but there were pretty stuff. The bag in the corner is less than SGD$15 and the quality is pretty good.
#20 Last two of my wonderful self.
And now I'm incredibly hungry from editing/writing this post so.. bye!
