Lok Lok @ Padang Brown

Penang is a food haven which offers food anywhere and at any time throughout the entire day.
If you are a tourist, you will be surprised by the crowd at food stalls at any time of the day, still beats me too!

One of their favorite food is Lok Lok; which has fishballs, vege, meatballs, eggs, cuttlefish, prawns on a stick; pretty much skewer-style which you dip into boiling water in a pot and then dip into sauce and into your mouth!

Lok lok is also known as Satay Celup in Melaka and other states and the Malays name them as Celup celup which pretty translates from the Chinese meaning as "Dip" as the food on the skewer are dipped into the boiling water to cook and then dipped into the plate of their favoured sauce.

Ice Kacang at Rm1.50 is really welcomed on a hot weather

    Memory sure is becoming cheaper these days. I wonder when we will finally reach the ratio of $0.01 to 1 Gig.

    I can't wait for the day when I will finally be able to afford a 20 TB drive, hahaha. But for now I guess I will be happy with having a 16 GB Micro SD Card in my R4i.
