Last night we ate very well at a local noodle and dumpling place for around A$7.00. 


Tonight we visited the Kebaya Dining Room for a set menu with a wonderful fusion of Nyonya and modern flavours. Not the same price as last night’s meal but great value nevertheless. 







A few highlights from today.

Tracking down more street art murals.  In this mix is Brother and Sister on a Swing and Children Playing Basketball by Louis Gan, a Penang-born artist and The Real Bruce Lee Would Never Do This, a piece from the 101 Lost Kittens project. 

If you happen to be walking down near the wharves, it’s not hard to tell that a new cruise liner has arrived in town.

And a Georgian house, restored to its early 19th century state. The restaurant upstairs in Suffolk House caters for lunches and afternoon teas.

We ventured further than Georgetown today and took a Hop On Hop Off bus on the beach route, where a whole new world of high-rise apartments lines the north coast of the island. We stopped off at the Tropical Spice Garden for a walk around and had a mid-afternoon lunch of Thai food at the cafe on the grounds.

We sat on the deck overlooking the Strait of Malaka underneath a very large fruiting tree. Any guesses why they named the cafe Tree Monkey?
