Chinese New Year in Penang
« on: January 30, 2012, 05:48:40 pm »
Got away from Kuala Lumpur chaos for the first time in over a month.
Flew up to Penang for a couple of days.
Georgetown is a world heritage site.
A famous trading port colonised by the British many years ago.
Best food in malaysia: combo of chinese, malay and indian cultures.
Narrow streets, shophouses, trade happening everywhere.

Rented some scoots and took a trip around the island
60 ront for the bike for the day, 9 ront on fuel, well worth it
Good to feel the wind in our faces again

Beaches, spice farms, butterfly parks, twisties, architecture, friendly people

A great couple of days all in all.

Off to Singapore next.




























almost bought this just because it was ORANGE











Whatever you're thinking, think the opposite

Nice one Paul, glad to hear you having fun over there.
How can I be lost when I have got nowhere to go?
