malaysia day 3 – cameron highlands to penang

Starting the day at Hong Kong Hotel & Restaurant with curry chicken chee cheong fun (not like kampar’s but still yums) and an iced kopi, somehow we always end up here for breakfast.

Headed to Cactus Point first, didn’t take any pictures because came here a few times already. I bought some packs plant seeds and then went to pang sai. Muahahahaha!

Then it was the market, quite boring because the shops all sell the same kind of stuffs; strawberries, corn, fruits & veggies, cordyceps. I did get my steamed corn here as a snack while on the way to penang.

There’s a tiny amusement park with very cheap rides, great if you have kids. The excavator ride was RM6.00.

Flowers outside, I took these with screenshot while video-calling with Sis. Not bad huh?

_

Wanted to visited the Lavender Farm but figured that it should the same like the rest of the farms, so we decided to proceed to Penang.

_

Got this at one of the rest stops once we got to the foot of Cameron Highlands. Overly drenched with sauce. Ewww. Not nice. Lucky it’s only RM2.

_

Took out my corn, I picked the kernels out one by one and just nice finish everything once we reach our first stop in Penang.

Sat in Joo Hooi Cafe and the shop owners will start coming to you asking if you want to order anything from their stall.

We had the popular Penang Road Famous Teochew Chendul. It was refreshing for the hot weather.

Duck egg char kway teow. Yum yum!

Forgot to take picture of the oyster egg omelette but this is the stall.

And Penang Laksa. Woohoo!

Bought some pastries at the bakery beside. The filling in the egg tart is very good; thick and flavourful, crust may be a little dry. Kaya puff is not too sweet. I’ll get more if I come back to Penang next time.

Checked in to the apartment and we got sea view! (Airbnb link here)

Went shopping at Tesco then it was dinner at Presgrave Street Hokkien Prawn Mee, there are also others stalls within the shop.

The soup base is good but I personally find it too spicy for me to enjoy, even my parents couldn’t handle the it. Dad got a headache after.

Wanton mee was a letdown, I ordered large and it was just a huge pile of noodles. Blergh.

Oyster egg omeletter sucks too.

And what’s with all the chilli in all the dishes? =( Got chilli doesn’t mean it’s good. I can only say something is good when they do not use overly spicy chilli, that is when one can truely taste the flavour of the dish.

Hazelnut Luxe Magnum! This is good!
