Our final destination for Malaysia was another on the British colonial trail with Penang being the one more favoured by the Brits because of its strategic Northerly position. It’s an island but is firmly connected to the mainland by one of the longest bridges in the world with another under construction which will stretch to the South of the island and will be even longer still!

Candy Crush? ;)
Brought back some nice memories, we love Penang! When we go back we will take a look at the street art, from your photos it looks great - a really different kind of 'graffiti'. We really wanted to go up Penang Hill and Kek Lok Si temple, but the funicular was closed and like you, we definitely weren't going to walk up in that heat!

Dale and a colonial relic!

We have photos from all over the place with us standing next to classicMini's as we have them at home. So happy to see they're still much loved. Reading about your travels is starting to give us the 'itch' again... Must resist the urge, must resist the urge... :) Talking of 'itches', I got those blasted hookworms off a beach in Thailand, but on my stomach, not sure what was worse, parasites partying inside me or the fact I must've rolled around in god knows what to catch them... The irritation does disappear quite quick but the redness persisted for ages, from memory a few months... Enjoy! :)

Free Beer a Must in Penang
I'm glad I found your blog and finally got to see Penang Hill - after walking there from Kek Lok Si we were so annoyed by the price that we just turned around and walked back to the bus stop near the temple. It sounds like you were there the same time as us (election season) so I really wish we had found one of those parties as we didn't drink a single beer in Penang due to the price. I have to agree wholeheartedly with you about the Indian food, we ate North Indian Tali and South Indian banana leaf at least once per day. Great job with the blog!
