We reached Butterworth around 1.30am of 25th January, 2009. I was totally exhausted cause of 9 hours driving...and this make me sleep until 12pm noon.
Once we wake up, the first thing we gonna solve is to fill our stomach. It was the eve of the Chinese New Year, so I dare not put too much hope on my favorite foods. We just drive around and depend on our luck. It was just 'too good to be true', the Hawker Center at Sing Tat Garden - Jalan Raja Uda was still on business!
Waste no time, we quickly jumped into the food court and order our favorite foods! Not many choices....my wife and daughter were having the Kuay Teow Soup and I ordered the Char Kuay Teow (Fried). Even the foods were average, not the best in town....but I felt very nice because it's been two year I haven't taste any Penang foods!
This Food Court is existed more than 50 years ago. Foods serve here are very unique, and some of them you can't find the same taste elsewhere. Especially the Economy fried Mee-Hoon and Kuay Teow.
We finished our lunch in 30 minutes, and went to the Biggest Shopping Mall at Butterworth - Pacific Mega Mall. Surprisingly, all the stalls were still open on the eve of Chinese New Year. I believe this is somehow related to the World Economy downturn....
