Penang

Today we rented mopeds in Penang and must I say, very bad idea. Very narrow roads and I swear there are no rules for driving down here. Crazy, crazy drivers. You know those lines in the middle of the road that separates the direction of vehicles…yah they ignore those, they pretty much drive where they feel like.
After our little adventure on the mopeds to tour the city of Georgetown, we stopped to have lunch at a local restaurant called Hawker food. This picture may not do justice, but this is called Laksa, thee best soup ever invented. Chicken, fish sauce and many other spices make this oh so mouth watering. Believe it or not, it tastes 1 million times better than it looks.

After lunch we went on a 20 minute cab ride to Batu Ferringhi (a very famous beach area lined with resorts, hotels and souvenir shops just on the northern coast of Penang). The beaches and scenery were so extravagant, I decided to relax, take in some hot rays of light and shop. There are so many souvenirs to choose from, but they sure sell alot of fans, necklaces, bags and little trinkets.
