George Town Night Markets

After an eventful day spent wandering through some malls and catching a movie, I had dinner with an American girl from Oakland named Mayim (I think, but I can’t be completely positive).

We walked to a nearby night market and enjoyed a sampling of Penang’s best. I got some fried noodles and char siu bao. She got the chee cheong fun and spring rolls. The atmosphere around us was bustling and loud. Cars and mopeds zoomed by and people greeted one another loudly. It seemed like a great place to spend time with your friends.

After the snack, we headed to another night market. Mayim bought some chicken hash. For dessert, we shared a mint chocolate cake and cheesecake. This area was much more commercial and touristy and featured a stage with live performers who sang in Chinese and English. Lots of fairy lights decorated the food stalls and helped make the place festive.

    Looks like Chinatown, Maunakea Market Place in Honolulu.
