Malaysia! is Truly Asia!!! Our first stop: Georgetown in Penang

Malaysia is definetly a big suprise for us! What an incredible mix of cultures and flavors! We loved it!

The trip to arrive to our first destination in Malaysia, GeorgeTown in Penang, was not an easy ride! We left from Ao Nang in Thailand and took a minivan that would take us directly to George Town.. so they promised :P 

First challenge! they forgot to pick us up! HAA!! at 6AM we were there waiting and waiting and nothing! After we called the travel agency and of course they told we were not there :P In Thailand "Losing Face" is quite big... 

Anyway the came back to pick us up 2hs later... here is our "Angry face":

Here is our face "I hope they really take us to George Town and not just drop us somewhere else"

We can't complain! On the end we did arrive well to our destination! :)
Antonio still needs to work on his faces ehhehehe
Some interesting stickers in our vans hehehehe

Our van mates! We were the only westerns

Time to enjoy George Town! Which is an UNESCO World Heritage Site,

George Town was founded in 1786 by British trader Francis Light, Georgetown was one of the three Straits Settlements along with Malacca and Singapore. You see a lot of colonial influence,


The Chinese influence is very present as well, 

Time for some foooooodddd! Malaysia is known for having one of the best food courts in the world! and George Town is the mecca of amazing food courts! Being big foodies! we couldn't wait to taste these amazing dishes with Chinese, Malay and Indian influence!!

How can you beat a food court with an amazing view!


Our second food court experience!!! what we love about food courts is that there is a lot of stands that are specialized in doing one or two dishes and they are the best!

FOODDD!! a nice Oyster Omelet :)

Fried crab with rice,

Yummy chinese noodles,

Fried rice warped in a omelet (Nasi Goreng Pattaya),

Spicy fish! 

George Town rules!!
