Since it was raining cats and dogs each evening, we decided to take it easy and *try* our best to catch the festival, which we now call the Penang Rain Island World Music Festival. :D Found this little nice cafe on Gurney Drive called Mr. Pot for tea. With the rain pouring heavily, and the wind blowing it sideways, we had our hot honey lemon tea and milo with toasted kaya bread. What bliss! :)

Eventually, we did make our way to the festival around 9 p.m. when it was drizzling/raining. Overall, maybe 'cause I was at Kuching, Penang didn't really do it for me. Although I must say they did a good job for the inaugural. Hopefully next year, they'll be smart enough to hire some 'Adverse Weather Controller' aka bomoh to take care of the rain or just move the festival dates. :)

Before we left Penang, we check out Kat's Tropical Spice Garden's cafe for lunch. As usual, our staple comunal dish, the fried squid and potatoes. :)

Two of us had the sandwich with either chicken or rendang chicken. Stick with the non-spicy as the rendang could get a little hot. :)

The other two had the pasta, which has the same option as chicken or rendang chicken. Wish they still had the nasi lemak and nasi goreng.

I can't remember what concoction this drink is made of but is was one of the better ones. Using only spices from the garden, you can be assured of their freshness.

Loads of these kinds of mixtures so be a little more adventerous and try some when you visit. :)

The best way to end the trip was just to have some durians from Balik Pulau and look at that photo. :) What more can one ask? ;)

I'm pretty happy with this Penang trip as I came back with someone in tow. Not too bad for a weekend away, I suppose. :)
