PENANG Walkabout 1 (Famous Teochew Cendol, Komtar Walk, Billion Star Express, Red Garden)

нello everyone! we are caт and нarold. welcoмe тo oυr blog, creaтed ιn нonoυr oғ oυr devoтιon тo тнe everyday ғood ғor тнe everyday perѕon, aѕ well aѕ тo caтalogυe oυr мeмorιeѕ, lιғe'ѕ evenтѕ, and тravelѕ wнere oυr 'perυт' (тυммy) leadѕ тнe way!

We're in the mood for a walkabout!

After a restful nap we awoke late in the evening rearing to go on a walkabout. First order of the evening was to walk to Prangin Mall nearby to see if we could get our bus tickets reprinted at the Billion Star Express bus counter. 

We walked out of the hotel and headed across Jalan Hutton then Jalan Transfer. We then walked southwest along Jalan Transfer before turning left onto Lebuh Dickens. We walked all the way to the end and then turned right onto Jalan Penang. KOMTAR was in sight!

Something caught our eye and we walked across Jalan Penang onto Lebuh Keng Kwee. We had arrived at the Penang Road Famous Teochew Cendol. The were no queues so we quickly ordered a serving of Cendol to go and continued along Lebuh Keng Kwee to the very end before turning right onto Jalan Kuala Kangsar that eventually led us onto Jalan Dr Lim Chwee Leong. KOMTAR was right in front of us!

We then headed northwest along Jalan Dr Lim Chwee Leong and arrived at the pedestrian bridge that took us safely across the very busy street. We had arrived at KOMTAR!

We however did not know how to get to Prangin Mall but fortunately a very friendly security personnel pointed us in the right direction. We proceeded along Komtar Walk to its end before turning right onto Jalan Ria. We continued on and made it across at the pedestrian crossing to Prangin Mall.

We found the Billion Star Express bus counter but discovered the reprinting could only be done on the day of travel. Oh well, so much for that.

We doubled back along the same route and eventually made it across the very busy Jalan Dr Lim Chwee Leong and found ourselves back on Jalan Kuala Kangsar. We walked to its very end before turning right onto Lebuh Campbell. We continued southeast and turned left onto Lebuh Cintra. 

We walked along Lebuh Cintra past Malabar Inn, a hotel that left us with a very bad memory. Early one morning as we slept in our room we were awoken by thick smoke, and so we quickly ran downstairs onto the road (thankfully it was just one floor). 

Despite it being a serious fire the proprietor did not call the fire brigade which led us to suspect the hotel was not up to code since it had no back door and emergency staircase.

Oh well, we live and learn. At the end of Lebuh Cintra we turned right onto Chulia Street but doubled back since our destination was in the opposite direction. We walked northwest and eventually turned right onto Leith Street and had dinner at Red Garden Food Paradise. Here we met our a subscriber for the very first time, Kenny and his wife from Port Klang!

After dinner we headed back to the hotel but on the way met Kenny again at Laundry39. We spent a little time chit chatting and continued on but not before stopping by Mydin Jalan Penang. It was however closed.

We got back to the hotel and meant to have an early night since we hoped to get to Penang Hill bright and early tomorrow morning. Stay tuned!

Lastly, we feel that it is our civic duty to remind everyone that while masks are now optional outdoors, it is still mandatory indoors!
