Who likes CENDOL and ASAM LAKSA???

I certainly do.Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

If it comes from a certain stall in Penang Street. It's been a long time since I've had a bowl because I don't often go to Penang. But whenever I get the chance I'd visit this stall here:-

Anyway, you must be wondering why this sudden post on Penang food. Well, my mummy had a meeting/ conference (I think) in Penang so my dad decided to make it a family day trip. It's been such a long time since we went to Penang as a family.And as usual when people go to Penang it's mostly about FOOD!!
So we had these:-




The asam laksa isn't the one we usually had since the original seller had some feud with the cendol seller (at least that's what everyone tells me as soon as I bring up Penang cendol and asam laksa). The cendol seller also sells laksa now and it tasted quite good actually...
Whilst we ate, we got to admire the cendol seller's Hall of Awards...

(my fav pic)
Okay..it's actually two walls.But you gotta admit he sells damn good cendol to attract famous people and politicians who're willing to actually sit at the road side (sometimes is sweltering heat or rain) next to his humble stall to enjoy a bowl of cendol. The raving reviews about this cendol is certainly no exaggeration. So make sure you visit there when you go to Penang...and eat as many bowls as you can.Haha!!Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

After stuffing ourselves, we headed to Chowrasta Market to the only stall in there that we ever seem to buy anything from:-Lots and lots of jeruk

I wanted to get my favourite nutmeg:-
Mind you, it's the ONLY jeruk I eat. It's dried nutmeg and you can choose to buy the ones dried with sugar or honey. I prefer the honey ones. My dad got me some of both. I was a happy girl.Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Being so stuffed and it was a really hot day...my dad decided to cut the trip short and take the ferry back instead of crossing the bridge again.

Goodbye Penang.
Till my next trip...
