Christmas Day Walkabout: To Lebuh Cecil and Back

Merry Christmas!

We spent the afternoon indoors as I managed to complete the first video from our first day in Penang. With the sumptuous Christmas feast at SmokePapa BBQ still percolating in our perut we decided on a no frills down to earth dinner.

We ventured out again at 6pm and walked across Jalan Transfer onto Lebuh Dickens before turning right onto Jalan Penang. We continued southwest and at the Octopus Pedestrian Bridge rode an elevator up. To our horror there was human faeces strewn all over the floor of the elevator, and when the doors opened there were even more strewn across the walkway!

We gingerly watched our step and eventually got across to Jalan Dr Lim Chwee Leong. We continued southeast before walking across onto Lebuh Lintang. We walked southeast to its end then turned right onto Jalan Magazine before walking across onto Lebuh Mcnair.

We walked almost a kilometer headed southeast along Lebuh Mcnair until we got to Cecil Street Market Hawker Centre. To our dismay the hawker centre was closed!

We then doubled back and walked onto Lebuh Cecil before turning right onto Jalan Gurdwara to have dinner at an alternative venue, Deen's Maju. WE've been meaning to pay this Nasi Kandar joint a visit for a very long while, and were glad that we finally did. Our Nasi Kandar together with a round of drinks came to RM29.25 (approximately USD/EUR6).

After dinner we decided to make it back to the Green House on foot, so we continued along Jalan Gurdwara before first walking across Jalan Dato Keramat then Jalan Macalister. We eventually ended up back along Jalan Penang before turning left onto Lebuh Dickens and across Jalan Transfer onto Lorong Popus, and back to the Green House.

With nothing planned tomorrow we'll probably let our feet lead the way, so please stay tuned!
