While in Penang...


Alhamdulillah, my first travel 2013 happened last weekend to Penang Island. For three days I got to explore the island's unique cultural, historical, foods and natural scenery. So upon arrival to Penang and after checking in at the "5 star" hotel (haha...actually my twin bro. apartment) I immediately explore the streets of Bayan Lepas. I have taken many photos during my trip but having a hard time to locate and remembering them...sorry guys!

Having simple lunch, Laksa Penang at Manaf Nasi Ayam in Batu Ferringhi, Penang is a real indulgence.
It came with a Prawn Paste (Otak Udang)

Laksa Penang and Prawn Paste (Otak Udang). So sedappp!

Friendly...my new friends and beautiful beach. Batu Ferringhi, one of Penang’s most popular destinations and a favourite place for beach lovers!

Enjoy the views from the top of Batu Ferengghi. These are my memories of my entire journey from Kuala Lumpur to Batu Ferringhi...hehe

Ok, the next day we went to the Budda Thai temple and the Burmese temple. The temple is actually a complex with beautifully landscaped gardens. The focal attraction of the complex is the massive braze Kuan Yin statue over 120 feet in high up on the hill.

Kek Lok Si Temple is the largest Buddist temple in Southeast Asia as claimed, and stands on top of a hill.
 
 yeahh, shopping time!

So where is the best place for dinner? 
Yes, the famous Ikan Bakar in Bayan Bay, Hammer Bay. Well, just four of us "anak-beranak" having dinner there. Watching the sun set, enjoying fresh seafood while the natural wind blowing you is just...awesome!
