Went to Penang for a short visit! Penang is one of my most favourite local destinations because it has a mix of everything: Sun, beach, and most importantly FOOD.
I think I'll just let the pictures do the talking.
Me on the way to Penang.
Donned in cotton baju kurung as it was the second day of raya. Cotton kurung is not a very popular choice these days but I like it because it is very practical as the cloth is very light and cooling. Perfect for the sun in Penang
Pit-stop at some R&R and at our room overlooking the view outside.
At the place we stayed in.
Some items on sale at the batu ferringhi night market.
People rarely stop to see how beautiful the items are at the night market
and you can find hidden gems here if you look hard enough.
Enough of that. This is what really matters: FOOD.
Fried seafood kuey teow and oyster omelette.. yummayh.
'Whisper words of wisdom, let it be'.. the Beatles
What I had for supper.. (yes, food again) my yummayh burger special extra beef, cheese and egg..
Tired-yet-trying-to-smile-face at the end of a very long fun-filled, stomach-stuffed and heartwarming day.

Hi. This is me, all ready for the eating spree which is about to commence.
I am wearing a long dress bought at the Feringghi night market (the night before),
my favourite MNG cardigan, Debutante Avenue's Raspberry Mix headscarf
and a butterfly brooch bought at the butterfly farm (hehe).
The sup kambing (sheep soup) (okay, mutton soup) is really wow.
This is definitely one of the best sup kambing ever and is at Gerai Darus No 12.
It's a small stall located at Padang Permainan Ipoh, Perak.
My family and I have frequented the stall since I was young.
Next to Darus there is a kerang rebus stall.
And you know that once you start eating kerangs, you can never stop!
Oh, and that's my niece Sarah wearing a masquerade mask.
Some pictures taken from the hotel before leaving Penang.
We had breakfast at the hotel, then stopped for some nasi kandar for lunch.
The weather was nice and the view across Penang Bridge was beautiful.
