Exploring Georgetown

Exploring Georgetown (2015 December)

Breakfast at Toh Soon

Exploring Georgetown consists of wall arts, buildings and food, of course. We started off our day with a simple but delicious breakfast at Toh Soon, located at Campbell Street. Toh Soon is very famous for it’s eggs and toast. They serve several types of bread. Steamed, toast, with or without eggs, etc. I love the thick coffee and nasi lemak. We did enjoy our breakfast. Simple and lovely.

But be prepared to wait for a seat. It was a weekday, and it was already crowded with people!

Wall Paintings / Arts

Thanks to Ernest Zacharevic‘s wall paintings, Penang has another attraction to offer. This also brought evolution of wall art to Penang. Anyway, we did not manage to visit everything. My Hong Kong friend is not such a big fan of Malaysia’s tropical climate. >.<

It is a good idea to bring a handheld fan while exploring Georgetown.  ;-)
