Penang, a fusion of East and West

Day 1: What the hell are we doing here?!

After a short flight from KL airport and not realising that you need to pre-order all meals on air asia we were starving! However, we decided to wait until after we had dropped our belongings at our hotel and find some local food in Georgetown. It should be easy right?! Georgetown is famous for its street food. Well, we just seemed to wonder for hours in the stifling heat, still a little unsure as to whether or not we were ready to settle for the REAL street food. We eventually decided to have lunch at The Book Sandwich Cafe (https://www.facebook.com/thebooksandwichcafe/), a cafe we had passed in the first 5 mins of us leaving the hotel. The atmosphere was nice and the cafe was air-conditioned which in the end was all we were looking for.

We both were feeling a little unsure about what people actually saw in the attraction to Penang at this point in time and were starting to feel a little worried about how we were going to be spending the next 6 days.

Day 2: Upside Down Museum and Heritage Food Court Discovery

Today we discovered a Food Court on Beach Street in Georgetown. We were feeling a little more adventurous and decided to jump straight into the street food and try out these little dumplings. Each of these little trays were 2.80MYR thats 0.66 AUD, we think they are a delicious bargain for lunch.
