I arrived in Penang after a long day travelling first by boat then bus from Phi Phi. After checking in to a hostel, me and Dave (I first met him in Vietnam a few months ago) went to look for something to eat. We found a little chinese stall that was selling a ‘herbal pork soup’. That sounded quite nice to me so I duely ordered a bowl full. Whenb it arrived, there was not a single bit of pig that I recognised by sight or taste! After bravely eating all I could, I asked the lady what was in the soup. The list was as follows; Pork meat, kidneys, liver, ear and tail! We shortly after left to find something else to eat!
Penang was quite interesting and we visited ‘Fort Cornwallis’ built by the british East India Company when britain took Penang for a trading post. We also went round the mansion of the chinese buisnessman Cheong Fatt Tze, which was really interesting, and built according to Feng Shui principles.
We left Penang for the Perhentian Islands on a super VIP overnight Bus!
