Today we used Jamahl, the hotel driver again for a trip to see some temples and churches.

We went into Georgetown first to Prangin Mall to see Patrick Ung (recommended on Trip Advisor) regarding our glasses. The traffic in Georgetown was amazing - so bad that we could not even cross the road from the car to the mall. Jamahl had to get out of the car and walk into the road and stop the traffic for us!

We then had another drive through Georgetown, Chinatown and Little India etc. We started with St Georges Church, then went to a small Thai Buddhist temple that Jamahl recommended and ended with the Thai and Burmese temples opposite each other. Lots of photo opportunities!

He then took us up a hill near Tanjung Bungah which had spectacular views over that side of the island and the sea.

Jamahl then dropped us at the Sunset Bistro in time for a late lunch. Great place and we spent a lot of time there during our stay.

We had dinner that night at Marios restaurant, up near the start of the night market. I ate the best lasagne I have had in a while and
