DAY TWO Day 2 saw us venture into George Town, Penang’s capital city.   After a hectic crossing of the roads, and a picture-snapping short stop at a Chinese temple, we parted ways with my sister and grandparents.

The evening of our arrival day saw us taking to the beach favourite hang-out, Beach Cafe. Greeted with smiles and fun, the owners made us feel at home at their shack and we chose our Chinese-style dishes. Honestly, it was the best sweet n sour chicken I have ever had, and so it should be […]
