Kedah Day 08

Today is the 2nd last day in Kedah so it's more rest vs travel.

Let's check out the house!

room

The room is simple with a bed, lights and fan.

3-room

There are three room in total on the upper floor.

living-room

The living room is spacious with some area allocated to store the whatnots for their business.

kitchen

The kitchen is spacious as well. Perks of living in a country where land is vast.

old-cabinet

This is a traditional cabinet that serves as a "fridge" in the olden days. Leftover food is placed inside for storage. The net keeps the bugs away, something freely available in a kampong (village).

bike-bridge

We headed over to Penang for a short day trip!

Something interesting you will notice in Malaysia is this overhead bridge specially catered for motorcycles.

chendol-stall

chendol

Penang is famous for its Chendol, a sweet dessert served with a coconut-based soup.

We also walked around in search of interesting wall paintings. Here's some:

painting-cat

painting-child

People there are really up to date. They added a pokeball and that spot is also an official pokestop!

painting-wall

yu-yee-mascot

yu-yee-me

We spotted this mega yu yee oil who happens to be my best friend. Saves you some pain when your tummy rumbles.

painting-bike

painting-getai

painting-lion

uncle-chair

You will still be able to see some traditional craftsmen around. Here's one weaving the main seat area for the chair.

barber

Traditional barber shop is still existing till today. My kind of shop. :)

penang-street

Really sunny afternoon with lots of heritage around the place.

pastry-shop

We also dropped by a traditional pastry shop to bring some on our flight home.

painting-pastry

They also have their own painting illustrating how their pastries are made..

lim-jetty

lim-bridge

The next stop is to the Lim Jetty. It's a Heritage site according to the description but I wonder if everyone staying there has the surname Lim.

ferry-up

Next up is the ferry back to Kedah! We were assigned to take the upper deck.

ferry-entrance

ferry-people

ferry-view

Both sides are for vehicle while the centre are seats for people. I heard that the ride costs less than one ringgit and it takes about 15 minutes. Cheap and convenient transport!

penang-gurney

If you visit penang, consider staying by the seaside that provides an unrestricted view.

pomelo-van

We spent the night helping my uncle sort out Pomelos that is in season due to the upcoming mid-autumn festival.

guava-van

Guava is also sorted out according to its quality and yes, that truck is commonly spotted on the streets.
