Join me on a tour to Penang, my favorite childhood holiday destination
2nd Penang Bridge – not impressed view-wise, could hardly notice you are on a bridge, except for the 4 pillar higher section at the end on the Penang side, and a very long drive around 15 minutes as it’s S.E. Asia’s longest bridge.
The middle barrier blocks the view because it’s above your eye level. Unlike the 1st Penang Bridge where you can see Penang island, mainland, and other small islands – more scenic and panoramic.

Penang Char Koay Teow with 4 huge prawns – best taste.
RM8:50 no egg, RM9:00 small, RM11 big for more noodles and prawns – portion the same as small for other stalls. No discount for no prawns – take it or leave it. If you don’t question the price you’ll be served like normal lol.
