Kenny is in Town

Kenny, the rocker is in town.. He balik kampung to visit his parents and took this opportunity to jalan-jalan cari makan in Penang. What else to do in Penang besides eating ??? First of all, we visited the famous Penang Assam Laksa (the one next to the longkang) in Air Itam Market. As usual the place is packed & full house. Manage to get a seat after a while. The vendor must be making big bucks huh? Halfway eating, we witnessed one sad incident... stray puppies being caught by the MPPP. The puppies were yelling and crying for help.... The way the puppies being caught was kejam. Don't ask me how... *Sob*.

While we were savouring the assam laksa in Penang island, that someone-someone out there at the same time having nice food & long hours of chit-chat in KL ;) After our first round of food, we wandered and drove around a while.. Well... come to think about it, not many interesting places to go in Penang except makan... So we ended up in another makan place called Swatow Lane. This time we managed to secure a seat inside the air-conditioned room. The place is fully occupied and noisy like pasar :P

Kenny said "This is what we called Char Koay Teow" (in comparison to the char koay teow he had in KL) :D

This is what we called Chen-dol (with my name in it.. *Perasan*), the sweet concoction with gigantic kidney beans.

White-white tei Chee Cheong Fun with stinky black-black tei prawn paste gravy, red-red tei chilli paste, sesame oil and sesame seed. Time to play with the rolled up steamed rice flour. The one I like the most is from New Lane, but only available at night time.
