|Dim sum and freshly made ramen for breakfast.|
|Jook, fried noodles, and roasted tomatoes.|
|A vegetable curry filled fried "pear". It was a|
little dumpling in the shape a pear.
|Jook, brie, and a chicken sausage.|
|Second bowl of delicious soup noodles.|
After breakfast we headed out to look for the ferry. The weather hasn't been as humid as I was expecting, but after walking around the city for a while dodging motor bikes and holes in the ground, we were all sweating like pigs. The sidewalks, when there are some, are quite dangerous. There are giant trenches between the sidewalk and road for water drainage as well as large holes. Not just pot holes, but actual holes for more water drainage.

|I know this picture is upside down, but Photobucket|
isn't working with me so I can't rotate it. This is what
the Malaysian Ringgit looks like.
After shopping around for a while, we headed back to our hotel to catch a shuttle to the five-star hotel area of Penang where we wanted to experience the night market.
|The Durian fruit that Mr. Fong has been dreaming|
about. I didn't think it was as stinky as everyone
had described, but I didn't have the guts to try any.
|Sharing a coconut. Because of the recent rain, it was very hot|
and humid out.
|Our view from the lounge chairs.|
|Clay pot of chicken parts and intestines.|
|Melissa's Indian dish. Not sure what it was called, but it had|
a nice kick to it and a lot of flavor.
|My lamb vindaloo|
|Satay with peanut sauce.|
|Garlic Naan and lentil soup.|
