Hotel G! There it is… It’s a gorgeous sunny day as the hotel comes into view..
Inside, contemporary chic deco welcomes the weary traveller…
And super stream-lined bedding… everything’s sooooo neat… just makes me wanna jump on, and mess up the bed.. lol
cool tiles in the bathroom…
welcome snacks and even an MP3 player, tell you that the rooms are equipped to please !
Gosh.. I cannot wait to hit the hawker stalls.
1st stop.. breakfast at Macalister Lane..
The sweet smell of carrot cake hits our nostrils… we are salivating..
I love penang folk.. they are ever ready to pose for a photo.. so friendly!
Here is the chee-cheong-fun man… and the nice lil lady..
Hmmm.. but what can i say… whilst the people are really nice and friendly, it’s starting to seem like the standard of the food in Penang has dropped. This is something that quite a few people have said as well… We had the Otak-otak and it was really so-so.
The lobak-gao (carrot cake) was also rather tasteless and lacking in LIAO… it was on the oily side but lacked flavour.
The curry laksa served here is really interesting.. the soup is WHITE! Then you mix in the curry paste.. and viola! it becomes red.. like the normal curry laksa soup.
Upon tasting it.. we were disappointed yet again… no taste! and not enough liao. Seems like the hawkers are really cutting corners to cope with the ever escalating prices of ingredients and the customers (i.e. hungry people like you and ME) are suffering the consequences…
Finally the famous Penang chee-cheong-fun… No surprises.. also very mediocre.
Sigh… I hope lunch will be better.. I hear we will be having the Famous Char-Kwey-Teow! I cannot wait! Let’s hope its better than our breakfast !
