Assalamualaikum and hi,
This is the second part of the Penang post. If you miss the first part, please feel free to check out and click here 😚 .
After tried the Ais Tingkap, we continue our tour to Armenian Street. I have to say that the view along the way to Armenian Street was great. Since I love heritage building, i decided to walk from the Ais Tingkap stall to Armenian Street (I do hope I can lost 10kg ! 😁). Of course i don't want to miss the opportunity to see the building along the way (ehem, I also hope I can see other view i.e. cute guy maybe.. oppss).
Let me explain a bit about Armenian Street. Armenian Street is located within the core zone of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. The street is famous with its cultural, building and street art.
There are so many interesting sightseeing in Armenian Street. One of famous attraction in Armenian Street is famous wall art by Ernest Zacharevic.
Restoran Kapitan is a 'mamak-style' restaurant. Those who don't know, mamak-style restaurant is an Indian Muslim restaurant that serve Indian cuisine such as teh tarik, tosai, naan, biryani, tandoori chicken and many more. Mamak restaurant is a place for most of Malaysian to hangout or 'lepak' with friends.
That's the end of our first day in Penang.
Roti Canai Transfer Road
Roti Canai is one of Malaysian favorite dishes. I choose to take breakfast at Roti Canai Transfer Road for some reason. First, Roti Canai Transfer Road is one of famous roti canai in Penang. Second, they also serve roti bakar (toasted bread). The roti bakar in Transfer Road is quite different in which they serve it with half boiled egg and they call it 'roti goyang' transfer road.
Roti Canai Transfer Road. You can order with or without chicken
Roti Bakar Goyang Transfer Road. OMG I'm starving !
Penang Hill @ Bukit Bendera
Our last pit stop is Penang Hill (Bukit Bendera). Penang Hill is a hill resort comprising a group of peaks on Penang Island. With the highest peak standing at 833 meters above sea level, it is the oldest British hill station in Southeast Asia (wikipedia).

I advice you to come earlier. I arrive at Penang Hill at 1.00pm and there are so many visitors. We have to queue about 1 hour before we can take the train. But if you doesn't want to waste your money and time for the train, you can hike. They provide a trail for those who want to climb the hill.
That's the end of our travel in Penang. There many other attractions in Penang beside what i have discovered and post. Happy travel to all. Bye.
