Some yummy noodles being served at the early morning Chinese market... I would like to note that RM1 (one Ringgit) is equal to about 33 US cents. It has come to the point where if a meal is over 1 US dollar (RM3), I start to think: is this really worth it?
The fried sesame dough ball man caught me snapping a photo!
Action shot of the crispy pancake making lady.
Gado-Gado: a taste of Indonesia in Penang.
Mee Goreng... this dish is usually available at every Malaysian restaurant, but this version was one of my favorites. This exact dish from this exact stall was actually featured on Eating Asia, my favorite Malaysian food blog, on this post: http://eatingasia.typepad.com/eatingasia/2009/01/mee-first.html check it out!
Delightful breakfast of carrot cake (otherwise known as Chai Tow Kway), and wanton mee.
A stall in Little India selling various fried delights, including the universe's best samosas.
A vendor preparing Teh Tarik.
So yea, Penang was... amazing. Good food, good friends, good times. It somehow seemed fitting to usher in the "new year" with the Chinese considering this is the beginning of a VERY new year for me, and being in Penang was the perfect way to celebrate. Gong Xi Fa Cai!
