Penang was more of a sort of break for me because I had limited time to use internet. I spent most of my time.. eating, sleeping, eating and more eating. I literally became a glutton there. I like my holidays to be rushed and exciting but this time it’s really different haha.
this is my sister. I KNOW, “why don’t you look like your sis? so.. different.” we don’t look alike. that is because she look a lot like my mom while I look a lot like my dad (which isn’t very fair! fml because my mom was really pretty and my dad’s.. a man). it’s been pretty long since I last had my sort of artsy mood to shoot portraits. =P. but when I saw that angle I just suddenly had that “feel” to shoot it. I’m weird. =P.
and you’d not guess what she’s leaning on.
it’s that huge thing filled with sand(?) for you poke your joss stick into in temples!
back to my topic.
the heritage Penang.
if you had not already know, the best Asam Laksa (says my mom) is in Ayer Itam. it’s located right below the cascading temple there.
there isn’t exactly a name for this stall I think. it’s just written LAKSA on the wall. it’s not a huge shop. but it’s constantly packed with people. I was there at a non-peak hour and definitely not the school holiday season. and it was still full!
bliss. I hate how Asam Laksa’s in KL give you a whole piece of fish. I like it minced.
just if you are wondering how this effect came into all the pictures in this post, they are screened and edited to high contrast.
Haha…the Air Itam laksa is only frequented by tourists. Not Penangites. Cos any other stalls around town beats it there. U shud consider goin to other stalls around 😉
U_U I dunno, I’ve tried various stalls and still liked this one the best. though the soup is a little bit more different now. I think they put less fish compared to before haha but it’s still delicious =D. thanks for the info tho!
Oh, just realised u replied to my comment here…now lolz =P
Yea, dat’s d thing about Penang. Famous hawker food around are normally over-rated. It’s d ones where u need to seek out. E.g Curry Mee at one place, Hokkien Mee at d other, Char Koey Teow elsewhere. Just get a friendly Penangite to get u there 😉
hurrr I wanted to make the notifier but then I dunno how to do it pfft. I ate the best Char Koey Teow! the sisters one right? hehehe.
Sister’s CKT…’the best’??? O_o””’
Well, i guess it’s a matter of different taste, but definitely there’s much beta. There’s one at Pulau Tikus where it’s charcoal fried, and fried plate by plate. IMHO (and most dat i’ve known and tried both), beats sister’s FLAT OUT ^_^
Eh, seems dat sumone succeeded in putting up d notifier email 😉
Lolz, even if i were to tell u, u’re bout 400+ km away from it. So, courtesy of it, i took dis picture enjoying it on behalf for u ^_^
