Here were some quick snapshots while bringing friends for a quick visit to George Town. The memorable part was getting to listen to the impromptu jamming session, East meeting West.
We started our day at Chowrasta Market.
Besides visiting the famous food stall like Poh Piah, Teochew Cendul, friend keoy teow and laksa (Penang Road), there are plenty of road side snacks.
‘Standard tour’ won’t miss out Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling.
Covering many Kongsi community halls.
May be I should try to take one series of black and white travel photos.
My favourite is still colour photos because it gives more complete information to the reader. If I take the blue mansion in black & white, you probably won’t recognize it.
Or the road side flower in B&W.
B&W may work for this old building against the high rise Komtar in the background.
We also made a quick trip to Kek Lok Si (just to complete our ‘site collection’, and to try the assam laksa at the foot hill).
It was another hot day, so we reserve Kek Lok Si for afternoon visit.
This plant looked the same from last visit few months ago.
Another interesting detour at Balik Pulau was the stopover at the nutmeg factory. I don’t like to eat nutmeg but surprisingly I love the juice. It was like plum juice, very refreshing when served cold.
