Over the Hari Raya break I managed to squeeze in a short break to Penang, the missus' hometown and 1 of the places of interest we stopped by was Balik Pulau ('the other side of the island'), which among other things is famous for its durian plantations. As the pictures will attest, it's a really small town with the Main Street running through it.

Here's also a short video of the preparation of the Penang Assam Laksa which incidently  was voted 7th out of 50 most delicious food in the world in a CNN global poll.

I love Penang as well. Those were good photos taken. A picture is better than a thousand words.
