The Blur(Chu?) leading the Blind(s) in the Island

I have one thing to admit. Being on this island for more than six months, i'm clueless about where to bring friends coming up from KL or other parts of Malaysia around this island.

Where's the best Nasi Kandar? Where's the best Char Koay Teow? Where's the best place to see the sunrise? Where's a good place for cendol? Where's the most interesting place to place my graffiti?

At times, i asked myself the same question, "O, where should i go for some decent chicken chop?"

Before the Hari Raya festive season, i got a visit from two friends, Dewgem and Tracy, at two separate occasions.

First, i met up with Dewgem, who was on break, getting away from the hustle of work in KL.

We when she was here, we went to Queensbay Mall and ate at Sakae Sushi, since i was clueless in where to go in the first place. And yes, it's no different than being in KL to eat Japanese food.

The following day, i met her up for lunch at New World Park. On Saturday, i met her at Gurney Drive for dinner, and later brought her to Bintang near Penang Hill for murtabak and Roti John. And we went back to Pulau Jejerak (where she was bunking with JL for her trip) where we chatted till late at night lah.

Then, i met up with Tracy on Monday... as she was visiting her relatives here with her family. Well, i went to Bintang (again) with her, and try and guess what i ordered for us (if you guessed murtabak and roti John, you're right, but no points for you!)

Then, we went down to Gurney Drive, as we walked by the sea and talked. It was good to catch up on each others' progress lah.

Hence, this is how much i know about this place. I don't know where to go to get the best food, the best place to view things, etc. I'm a simple person and i'm not very excited when it comes to eating excellent food (I eat to live, not live to eat).

Perhaps, i should take up the initiative to see places around here, and try out more food here. Perhaps i'll do more of the former and less of the latter.

So, where on (Penang) should i bring people to next time?

Love & Peace!~

But hey, you can show people around KL, right Anna?

Randomly to places I like to eat at.
But only if I have designated driver or it's accessible by LRT. I get lost in KL lah....

It's more like I go "hey, remember the so-and-so place you took me last time... let's bring -whoever- there"
