Last nights sleep was interrupted on numerous ovations as the neighbours were up until the early hours.
We checked out and went for a stroll, rucksacks and all, to find a new guesthouse. After a bit of hunting we found Heritage 16. A guesthouse hiding above a cafe in the heart of china town. Japanese inspired decor and free breakfast along with the fact we were the only guests sold it. We used the facilities and headed out for brunch and an explore.
We headed for little India. An area of Georgetown that the Indian population has taken a hold of. Loud Indian music is pumped into flower garland lined streets and India restaurants fill the air with the smells of curry!
A restaurant selling thali dishes served us well... Thali, a platter of veggie dishes, curries, rice, popadoms and chapati bread. It was damn good.
We spent the rest of the day exploring the town and getting our bearings. Most streets run in blocks but with each back alleyway looking like the last it was not an easy task, even with a map.
After some chill out time with tea and milkshakes back at the guesthouse we soon built up our appetite for dinner.
We headed for one of the famous food centres for a taste of Malaysian delicacies. I had read about Assam Laksa, a so called "must have" Penang dish. It was good but nothing special, noodles and veggies in a spicy shrimp paste soup.
Wanting more but with no room for food we strolled home to catch up on last nights poor sleep.
