Penang Short Trip

Penang Rush Trip

Flew to Penang for 3 days as I have to attend to some matters there. Thus I took the opportunity to meet up some friends and get as much food that I craved for all the while in Hong Kong.
Travel type: Solo
When: 2018, September 19-21
Flight: Airasia [Kuala Lumpur (KLIA2) > Penang, 55 minutes]

Penang Road Laksa, Chendul, Char Koay Teow
I ate all these by myself! I was nearby and this is the place I could think of where I can eat so many good food at the same time.
Total amount: RM15.50 (Laksa RM5.50, Chendul RM3, Char koay teow RM7.00). Where can I find these awesomeness, both the food and the price in Hong Kong?!
**Psst: I like the small portion of food in Penang, so I can eat more varieties!  :lol:
