Penang Day 2 (Nasi Lemak Ali, Sunny Phoon, Chowrasta Market, New World Park)

Penang Day 2!

We had meant to wake up early and take a morning stroll to our breakfast destination, alas we overslept. The niggling pain at my lower back was still there, which could have contributed me sleeping longer than expected.

By the time we got ready it was already 9:00am but we were determined to have breakfast at Nasi Lemak Ali so we hailed a Grab car and were there in five minutes.

The crowd was not too bad, we got our packets of Nasi Lemak and found seating within ten minutes. Two packet of Nasi Lemak came to RM5.00 and a round of drinks another RM5.00, and so our breakfast came to only RM10.00 (approximately USD/EUR2).

We then caught a free Rapid Penang CAT bus to 7-Eleven Jalan Penang, and from there walked to Chowrasta Market. We strolled along the morning market and at the end of Jalan Chowrasta turned right onto Jalan Kuala Kangsar.

Here Cat got herself two pairs of batik pyjama sets for RM30.00 each (approximately USD6/EUR7). We then doubled back to the other end of Jalan Kuala Kangsar where we got half a watermelon, half a cantaloupe and some banana for RM26.00 (approximately USD5/EUR6) to help with our digestion.

We headed back to the hotel to store away our bounty of fruits and retrieved the spectacles that I left behind before making our way back along Jalan Hutton. Cat found a hair salon and to her surprise it was very barbershop-like that catered to both men and women.

The 'haircut' cost RM45.00 (approximately USD5/EUR6) and Cat was most pleased with her new do.
We then caught another free Rapid Penang CAT bus from 7-Eleven Jalan Penang for a short ride to KOMTAR. Here we walked up the ICT Mall and across the pedestrian bridge to 1 Avenue Mall in search of lozenges.

We then walked back into ICT Mall and made our way to the bus top at KOMTAR Utara wheren we eventually caught a Rapid Penang 101 bus for a fare of RM1.40 (approximately USD/EUR0.30) back to the hotel.

We decided to have lunch at 126 Hui Ong Cafe next door and ordered the:

  • Marmite Chicken with Rice for RM9.00
  • Kam Heong Chicken for RM9.00
  • a round of drinks plus takeaways for RM8.00

that came to only RM26.00 (approximately USD/EUR6). We then headed back to the hotel and spent the afternoon tending to laundry and videos respectively.

We emerged from the hotel at seven in the evening taking a stroll along Jalan Hutton, though this time instead of heading southeast we walked in the opposite direction.

In no time at all we arrived at our dinner destination, New World Park Food City. After checking out their stalls we settled on:

Mixed Grille platter for RM28.00
  • Wat Tan Hor for RM10.00
  • Lor Bak for RM8.00
  • an assortment of drinks for RM4.00

that came to RM50.00 (approximately USD/EUR11) which in our minds was reasonable enough. We then walked back to the hotel. The pain at my lower back is gettting worse, and we hope that it will subside soon.

With absolutely nothing planned again, let's see what tomorrow brings!
