Penang Guide : George Town in 24 hours (V.1) 槟城岛 : 乔治市

George Town, Penang.
 
It was sad when I flip through my gallery, not many food exploration and even places I had visited when I was there sometime last month. I was arrived a day later than the others, and makes it there's only have 24 hours or less (minus sleep) to explore with. 

Arriving a day later due to attending seminar held in KK and cannot be postponed nor replaced. Moreover, my friends were unwell because of the hot weather and cold air-conditioning since the day I arrived (you will die laughing if you knew why).


- Airbnb -

It was my first stay via airbnb, it was interesting and gosh, I love the condominium unit that we stayed, gorgeous Penang bay view from our eyes, feeling so wide from day to night, I couldn't take my eye away from it. :) The day view and the night skyline view.

鳗鱼肉及肉碎片。 It was not an ordinary bowl of kuey teow soup, it was a bowl of kuey teow soup with homemade eel balls with minced meat slices on top of the broth that non stop boiling as seen outside the shop.

Non halal restaurant from what we could taste. "Ye Jiao Guo Tiao Tang" is a favorable coffee shop by Penang Minister, Mr. Lim Guan Ying. We have yet to meet him in real person.


- 椰脚粿条汤 @ Carnavon Street -

I love that savory taste of their bowl of soup, hardly to taste such now a days. Eel balls were soft, unlike fish balls which is springy (QQ).


- Penang Street/ Wall Art -

When time goes by, there are a lot of new wall art attached to Penang. The above, I'm guessing an art piece made of bronze, wire with a historical story of the past in Penang, totally love the concept and meaningful art piece.


- Penang Street/ Wall Art -

- Listed building -

Aged building always caught my eye. So many tourists in Penang when we were there, especially from China, loud and noisy.


- Painting artist -

Random snap which we were able to walk passes them, beautiful lively art they have painted passionately.


- Penang Street/ Wall Art -

- Penang Street/ Wall Art -

Among the first few wall art by Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic. There were so many wall art that we saw in George Town and not all that we captured, too many tourists and moreover, good memories well kept in heart. :)


- Penang Street/ Wall Art -

Kung Fu! That's Bruce Lee along the alley. We were guided by a kind elderly that pointing to us there.


- Penang Street/ Wall Art -

Perhaps it was the first friends trip for me for the past living years, exclude university and college away from home.


- We've been "lucky" -

Couldn't agree more on the efficiency of Penang. Two days strikes our rent car was summoned, what a day. And guess what? The men pushed the car because it was out of fuel and luckily passed a short distance with the nearest petrol station. (lol) We could repeatedly talk about our friends story for years.


- Heritage Trail : 姓氏桥 Clan Jetty (Surname Bridge) -

Location : Straight down from Lebuh Chulia (beside the Kapitan Kling Mosque) at Pengkalan Weld (Weld Quay).

Clan Jetty formed part of heritage trail of Penang. As explained in Penang.ws, it was used to be 7 jetties, which now only 6 due to demolished by fire back then. Billed as one of the last bastions of old Chinese settled on Penang Island, the waterfront society is home to houses on stilt of various Chinese clan.
There used to be seven jetties until one was demolished by fire and now six remain. Billed as one of the last bastions of old Chinese settlements on the island, this waterfront society is home to houses on stilts of various Chinese clans. Located straight down from Lebuh Chulia (beside the Kapitan Kling Mosque) at Pengkalan Weld (Weld Quay), these water villages are over a century old. Each jetty is named after a Chinese clan – the Chew Jetty is the most tourist-friendly with the most stilt-houses, the longest walkway, a temple that is worth stopping by and plenty of places for those Kodak moments.

The water village existed for over a century. Each bridge is named after a Chinese clan, the most tourist friendly jetty is Chew Jetty, businesses and houses can be seen at once. And so we were visiting Chew Jetty while having our late lunch before going back to our condominium for rest.

- Big Bowl Ramen @ Chew Jetty -

Big Bowl Ramen, also known as MY VOICE. Our friend told us that their ramen was good and we went there. Luckily we arrived few minutes earlier, or else we will be standing outside waiting for our seats.


- Big Bowl Ramen @ Chew Jetty -

Both bowl we had non spicy Ramen. 2 person portion for each. I often told others that when we are traveling, always ask for sharing and which is good that we are able to try more meals, instead of one.


- Half way -

That I told you earlier. (lol) A good man help them to push the car. In reality, he was afraid we blocked his tourist bus too!!


- Night skyline of Penang -

Told you that we couldn't keep away our eyes from such scenery. Totally love it. :) Especially captured it with Huawei P9!

Somehow, I believe that everyone have their romantic side. A scenery like this would melt me, especially watching it with someone special.


- Penang Bridge -

The view after departure back to Kota Kinabalu. Not sure whether the bridge is the first or second, but for sure it was longgggggggggggggggg to Butterworth.


- Butterworth from sky -

It was nice traveling with friends, but choose your friends wisely when go for travel. Partner in crime, need to be someone to go along too, it's a teamwork too.

Penang, I will be back.
