Today is the 2nd last day in Kedah so it's more rest vs travel.
Let's check out the house!
The room is simple with a bed, lights and fan.
There are three room in total on the upper floor.
The living room is spacious with some area allocated to store the whatnots for their business.
The kitchen is spacious as well. Perks of living in a country where land is vast.
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).
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.
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:
People there are really up to date. They added a pokeball and that spot is also an official pokestop!
We spotted this mega yu yee oil who happens to be my best friend. Saves you some pain when your tummy rumbles.
You will still be able to see some traditional craftsmen around. Here's one weaving the main seat area for the chair.
Traditional barber shop is still existing till today. My kind of shop. :)
Really sunny afternoon with lots of heritage around the place.
We also dropped by a traditional pastry shop to bring some on our flight home.
They also have their own painting illustrating how their pastries are made..
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.
Next up is the ferry back to Kedah! We were assigned to take the upper deck.
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!
If you visit penang, consider staying by the seaside that provides an unrestricted view.
We spent the night helping my uncle sort out Pomelos that is in season due to the upcoming mid-autumn festival.
Guava is also sorted out according to its quality and yes, that truck is commonly spotted on the streets.
