penang in december


it wouldn't be penang if long queues weren't seen at the 2 penang road cendol stalls....

or, the roads weren't constantly clogged with traffic.......


or, if the food courts weren't packed amidst live stage entertainment....


and, it also wouldn't be the north-south expressway if an error of judgment on the part of a single motorist didn't cause a 10km crawl...

talk about getting away from the crowd......!!

Claire,

this was between K.Kangsar & Ipoh. if i had been more adventurous, i would have exited at KK & go to ipoh by trunk road.

hope you have a safe trip on your travels.

I hate crowds. I hate over-paying for substandard food. I hate queuing for everything and I hate traffic jams. That's why you can always find me sitting at home eating junk food in front of the tv during any festive holiday in Malaysia. :)

Foong,

it was made from 500ml water bottles & lighted up with neon bulbs.

Andrea,

to quote your good self,

OMAI!

that's a lot of negative vibes from you. the mamee-doubledecker factory is located near where i live - maybe i get you a lorry load of mr potato??

I really wouldn't mind braving the crowds for good food. I am seriously craving some authentic penang street food. Sob!

Andrea Boult said...

Omai! Omai! THAT was alot of negative vibes, wasn't it? LOL. *blush blush*

Anyway, after tonight's karaoke with a group of boisterous friends, I shall be the nicest so-and-so in Blogdom. :P

doc said...

Fibrate,

the only authentic penang street food can only be found in penang, no matter what the sign says at the stalls elsewhere, eg. penang char kway teow.

must be the lard.

Andrea,

ah, so this is how to tame you!
