It was soooooo hot today, but mmmm….if you like fruit, you will love it down here in Penang. They make some of the best fruit drinks with a little kick in the end. I had stopped in a local bakery to grab a quick drink, so I ordered a can of orange juice. After I downed my drink, I felt a little edgy and light headed and apparently so did the little kid beside me. Evidently another tourist had showed me the fine print on the can, which might I add is barely visible to the eye unless you are looking very hard at the can, but in some cans of what you might think is just juice, is actually spiked with alcohol. Apparently in Penang it is very common that alcoholic beverages are sold to minors, due to the fine print of alcohol on the can makes it very hard to determine if they are selling juice or alcoholic beverages.
Later on in the day we decided to head to the beach to cool off and relax, instead we met some local parasailing guides named Azwar and Tee-Tee. Below is a picture of them, they were the funniest guys around, really good sense of humors they have have down here. As a standard rule, it is respectful to dress more conservatively in public places, especially if you are visiting out of city centres.
