Chillin with Fella and Sis in Penang

We stayed in Penang near Love Street. Love Street is where the prostitutes hang out, not pretty girly boys like in Thailand but Indian men with five o'clock shadow, big calves and hairy legs. Not a good look. It's sort of shady where we're staying, my sister wanted to stay at a place cheaper than me and my fiance and she ended up nearly staying at a brothel. There wasn't much drinking to be done as it's muslim so we just checked out buddhas, markets and malls. Indonesian ice cream was the strangest thing I've ever eaten, balls of gluten, creamed corn, cold creamed black beans and other things that simply don't suit a bowl of ice cream. All in all, wasn't my favorite place in S.E. Asia but it's still warmer than a Canadian winter. The afternoon at the Eastern and Oriental Hotel, the only 5 star resort in Malaysia was beautiful. Strawberry Daquiri under white umbrellas overlooking the nicest view of the ocean in town and the service was amazing.
