Day 4 destination was a bit of mystery. Didn’t really know where our friends brought us. We spent most of the time being quite close to nature.
We had breakfast at the same place we had our tea break on the second day. My friend bougth some local kueh for us to try.
No idea what they are ;p Hehehe… Anyway, we parked near this place, End of the World. WAH! Such “unlucky” name. CHOI!
First stop was Tropical Fruit Farm. We didn’t drive up instead we walked up. Very tiring *LOL* What to so? Someone never do exercise one hehehe… The fruit you see here is nutmeg.
These were the dessert we had after breakfast ;p Don’t remember the price but all these are great for sharing. By the way, it’s best to don’t buy any sweet at this place. I bought a packet of nutmeg sweets and it cost me RM6 but when in town and in the airport, the price was so much cheaper than buying up there. Felt cheated.
It rained that time, so we waited for the rain to stop while savouring our desserts and enjoying the view.
Next stop was Air Terjun Titi Kerawang.
Since it’s rainy season, it’s not that recommended to play in the water, not like we intended to play also ;p Just went there to have to look.
Since the current was too strong, we couldn’t see much of the waterfall, so we just viewed it from afar and took some photos around.
After that, our friend brought us to a beach where it’s not known to many tourists except the locals. It’s actually at the same location of National Service Camp, this area should be called Balik Pulau if I’m not mistaken.
See how big the grains are? You can directly feel the difference once you are barefooted.
View of the beach to my left.
View of the beach to my right and I left my name there ;p Not my slippers of course!
This is the small island that we saw on the way down to hunt for food ;p
One last view of the sea.
After that, we were on the way to find the famous Penang Assam Laksa at one of the villages in Balik Pulau. Finally we’re here! It’s such a seclude place and there were so many people drove all the way there to have their fix of Assam Laksa and also their Har Mee (I think that’s what they called it, since there’s many prawn and tasted “prawny”). Don’t even ask me how to go. Even my friend got lost when wanted to bring us there ;p
Left: The famous Penang Assam Laksa. This was the only one we had in Penang. It’s very delicious. Different from Sarawak Laksa, duh~ Don’t ask me which one is the best because both are GOOD! Both use totally different ingredients, therefore you cannot compare them. It’s only RM2.50! CHEAP!
Right: Har Mee, hmm… Nothing much to rave about this. The Assam Laksa is still the best. Also RM2.50.
Next, we will go to see turtle and experience the war time.
