Trip To Visit President (Day 2)

Day 2 in Penang. Started off early as today’s agenda was to go hunt for murals.

First stop: Breakfast.

Where: One Corner Cafe.
Jalan Bawasah, George Town, Penang.

This place has one of the best prawn mee in town. But the wait for your order can take up to an hour. We were lucky to get ours within 30 minutes.

The chopsticks were said to make the photo look messy, so we removed them for a retake. This time, all spoons must face in one direction!

Chee cheong fun.

Dry lor mee. Not sure how they meant this as dry. It looks quite soupy to me.

Or kueh (yam cake) with the 3 tones of sauces…

And drinks. Seems like everything today is 3-toned 😀

And that’s just breakfast 😀

We arranged with President to meet us downtown. While waiting for her, another round of yum cha at a mamak. Someone had a roti kosong too 😀

Then on to the mural hunt!

Next food stop: Ming Xiang Tai for snack break of herbal tea & pastries.

Where: Ming Xiang Tai
26 Gat Lebuh Armenian (at Lebuh Victoria), George Town, Penang.

At first I thought it was flower tea, but it’s herbal… got ginseng, wolfberries, red dates… lots of those medicine-type stuff. Pretty good thirst quencher.

Then it was off to Chowrasta Market for cendol / ais kacang & Penang laksa!

Dropped off President after dinner, went in to say hello to her family & her doggie, Joey, then we headed back to the hotel for some much-needed sleep. Again, beyond caring if anyone snored or talked in their sleep.

End of Day 2.
