Gastronomical Landscapes

What do you do when your have bloggers block, are running away from family and relatives talking about marriage and kids, post election news, and reality?
Why you post your boring ass travel photos!
All travels start with the noble idea of snapping artistic photos that will awe the world and bring loads of feel good comments. This is at a small fishing jetty somewhere in rural Kedah (we got lost :P)

And when you see the expanse of the landscape, you feel with the world. Those tiny white things are storks eating something on the empty paddy fields. If someone counted, there would be about 547 of them in this picture alone.

And the magnificent sunsets, the sky burning the polluted air and the resulting shades of orange and...hmmm...more orange.

And when you get bored of it all, you eat! The drinks are from left to right; Chinese tea, Iced Milk Tea, Longan drink and a chrysanthemum tea. And the food is char koay kak!

Or you can head to Penang and hop on a beca and eat real hawker food! Wohoooo!

Penang is full of Apartments and expensive Condo's!!!
(Actually Penang is renowned for its colonial architecture, beautiful Chinese, Buddhist and Indian temple's. We didn't snap any coz it was already night and raining)

And eat more! Yes, this is a species of squid, soaked in water. It tastes good in rojak sotong. The tiny stuff there are cockles and other members of the shell animal family thingy.

This is a Pasembor stall...those are fried stuff made of crab meat, fish, and other edible stuff...which are often described in western food shows as 'Weird Asian Food'.

From the stuff above in the Pasembor stall, you get this...The Pasembor, a heavenly food, covered with cucumber, some white turnip vegetable and a secret sauce. Oh by the way, don't over do it in Penang, when you choose the items to be made into pasembor, just choose the ones you like. A plate like above would cost around 20 to 30 bucks.

And finally after stuffing your walk down to the world famous (Lol) Gurney Drive and rest looking at the never ending horizon...or just be lazy and snap a photo from your car and head home and sleep...

The End.
