Penang Day 2

Day 2 was spent on sight seeing after breakfast.. .can i say that the 3 worst ever meal I had in Penang was actualy right at the hotel?... yes.. tis tat bad... or mayb its just the fussy me...
Anyway After our tour at Kek Lok Si... We walked over to Penang Hill.. yes we walk.. din take a cab... I tink Dear must have regretted badly for training me to back pack in the Europe days .. I refuse to take a cab.. believing that i can walk there.. and YES I did... after a good half an hour.. we saw this 'Cafe'

Hoping for some good food... We went in..but sadly msot stalls are closed.. and so we went to the coffeeshop nxt door.. and they do have loads of yummy.. People were friendly too.. there wasnt any seat left and the uncle kindlyopen up the aircon room for us... How nice... Thou we arent too hugnry but i guess.. diedie must eat lar... and so... we had

Lor Bak which A told me I MUST try when I go there..
its a little like our Ngoh Hiang.. but ermmm still different.. some fo them have prawns in it.. while some are fish.. some are minced pork too... with century egg wrap in.. goes very well w the 2 sauces provided.
Penang Char kway teow

Dinner was suggested by Dear.. he wanted to try Bali Hai

Well we need carbo rite? hehe so we need a noodle dish

Hokkien Mee... again it tastes so so

And I ordered half a dozen of oysters.. our fav!!!!
