Evening Stroll (To Lebuh Leith and Back)


We checked into the hotel at a quarter past four and settled in. An hour or so later the walkabout itch bit us and since we had some laundry to do we walked out of the hotel looking for a local Murukku (a savoury, crunchy snack, its name derives from the Tamil word for "twisted", which refers to its shape) shop.

We walked southeast along Beach Street before turning right onto Lebuh Pasar where we found KVM Thulasiraman, the Murukku shop. We were asked to get several packets of the Dhall Pagoda variant and did so. 

We then continued our stroll along Lebuh Pasar before turning right onto Penang Street then left onto Lebuh China. We continued northeast to the end of the street until we reached the Goddess of Mercy Temple built in 1880.

We then walked onto Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling and continued southeast until we reached the intersection with Lebuh Chulia. We walked across then continued along Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling before turning right onto Jalan Buckingham.

We arrived at 123 Laundry only to find it claustrophobically small.

Due to an error downloading the files from the DJI Action 3 we lost all footage from this point onwards!

We actually eventually arrived at Laundry 39 along Lebuh Leith, and then had dinner at Red Garden Food Paradise. We ordered the:

  • Sotong Kangkung for RM18.00
  • Char Kueh Teow with Duck Egg RM9.00
  • German Sausages RM20.00
  • Small Heineken & Keat La Juice for RM20.00
  • Banana Split RM12.00
  • Apam Balik x RM7.00

for a grand total of RM86.00 (approximately USD19/EUR17). 

We were able to recover footage from the DJI Pocket 2 and picked you up at St. Xavier's Institution. We walked southwest along Lebuh Farquhar past the Church of the Assumption and the Francis Light Memorial before turning right onto Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling again.

We then walked across onto Lebuh Bishop and continued southwest all the way almost to its very end before we stopped to chat with the proprietor of Auntie Gaik Lean's Old School Eatery. We then continued on past the Ali Nasi Lemak Daun Pisang before making it back at the hotel.

I will be busy in the morning attending to office matters at our Penang branch, but hope to go for another walkabout tomorrow evening. Stay tuned!
