My CNY Penang Trip, 2009

Summary for my Penang Chinese New Year Trip.

The common topic :-
Among friends and especially at the coffee shop, the most common topic I heard was :-
1) Economy downturn.
- "I heard that factory gonna close down already!"
- "Mr A and Mr B had been retrenched!"
- "That factory going to close and swift to Butterworth"

2) Traffic Congestion.
- "Wah! Penang Town area jam like nobody business!"
- "The Penang Bridge Toll long queue for 5km!"

I heard the same topics repeat and repeat again at everywhere....

The most excited moment I had :-
1) Visit Penang Hill after 25 years!
2) Stayed at one of my favorite hotel - 1926 Heritage Hotel
3) Met my old friend at Penang - Bob, Khoo & Lance.

The local foods I had at Penang :-
1) Penang Jawa Mee (Noodle)
2) Penang Ice Kacang
3) Penang Dry Curry Mee (Noodle)
4) Penang Char Kuey Tiaw (Fried rice noodle)

The Worst Jawa Mee I ever had before!

Ice Kacang with Ice Cream!

The above Jawa Mee & Ice Kacang were sell at the same kopitam (Coffeeshop). Located at Jalan Teratai of Jalan Raja Uda, Butterworth. (N5°26.317' E100°23.200')

Penang Dry Curry Mee (Noodle)

Jawa Mee again! It's GOOD this time! :)

The above Jawa Mee & Dry Curry Mee were selling at one of the coffee shop at Chai Leng Park. It's located at the junction of Jalan Kurau and Lebuh Kurau 3. (N5°23.110' E100°23.581')

Penang Char Kuey Tiaw

I had Char Kuey Tiaw many times! Most of them were equally good!
I even taste the Famous Malay Char Kuey Tiaw at Sungai Dua, Butterworth. It's GOOD! They can fried it so delicious!
