So up up here we go! Separated into two vans!

Prawn Fritters @ Tan Jetty, Weld Quay
That's my clan's jetty! And I don't even know there's prawn fritters here! >.<
So yeah, good chance to really explore around!

Apparently they are famous judging from the crowded customers!

Trust me, they are making it massively!

The boss shown us the making of prawn fritters too!
He explained that the deep fryer they using is the same as the Char Koay Kak one.
The oil looks black because of the pan.
According to the boss, they actually changed the oil everyday.

Lobak - RM1.50/pc
Personally I like it very much!
Different with how my mum would do it, they put a lot of meat not vege! 
Lobak mahhhh ofcourse need more "bak" right? =D

Prawn Fritters - RM0.90/pc
You can see all the small prawns!
Too bad I can't eat much as I'm allergic to prawns. 

Prawn Fritters with TauGua 
A mixture of both before deep fry.

Sorry my camera can't focus on the food because I was busy eating!
Frankly, the chili sauce is the best!
It makes the fritters so much nicer!

Arrived at Pulau Aman Jetty!
Many people were waiting to go back!

A lot of blue shirts, guess they were having event there.

Entrance to the island.
It is believe that this is the only island in Malaysia that fully inhabited by Malays.

Map of the small island!

One of the stall making and selling Kuih Kapit (Kuih Kapek).
Damn pro! And really not easy you know!

Some stall selling those goreng-goreng snacks.

Turn left after entering the entrance of the island will leads you to this floating restaurant!

First thing you will see would be the stall selling the seafood!
This is where you could buy those big prawns  and big mantis prawns.

Walk further down you will come to the restaurant that full of people!

Mee Udang Goreng
Mee goreng with two big prawns! 
The noodle itself full of fragrant of prawns. Yummyyy!

Mee Udang Rebus
The prawn soup was sweet and tasty!

Nasi Goreng Udang
If you want to be more fulfilling, fried rice would be perfect!

Ice Lemon Tea and Syrup Limau

Yummehhhh! 

After the meal, went to walk around the island.
The villagers are mostly fisherman.

One of the historical site in Pulau Aman - Telaga Mas or Golden Well


Guess how the well looks like?



Like this! =.=

They actually have renovated the well with shelter.

Well at least we get to see some nice view! =D

Meet my dear deer! =D

My deer and the model! Cute little girl! =D

Super thin isn't it? But one day the villager will eat them. =(

A bit on dirty on the seaside but the sky looks great!

You could rent a canoe too! 1 hour - RM12 only!

A villager washing his boat.

A very unique pathway whereby both side also sea!

I wonder if the pathway will lead us to the other side during low tide.

Laksa Poppiah @ Farlim Shell Station Coffeeshop, Farlim
After the island tour, we went back to Penang island.
We continued the food trail with a teabreak at Farlim!
It is none other than the famous Poppiah with Laksa soup!

Poppiah with Laksa Soup
Special isn't it? In fact they kinda mixed well together!

What could be better than a bowl of See Koh Th'ng!

Bak Kua bun! 

Laksa!

Poon Choi @ Zi Zai Restaurant, Paya Terubong
Finally the last stop for dinner at Paya Terubong.
Quite obvious to locate this restaurant!

It is the only restaurant among the whole row of shop lots.

Poon Choi (Big Bowl Feast)
Rarely I get to eat this mainly due to the expensive price!
But lucky me get to eat it this time! =D

Belacan Chicken
Always a good appetizer to start a big meal!

Asam Prawns
Another appetizing dish that could make you finish whole bowl of rice!

Stir Fry Sambal Lala
Personally, I don't like this type of lala.
So small and I'm just too lazy to eat one by one.
They can't even fit into the gap between my teeth. #ifuknowwhatimean

Salted Fish Bean Sprouts

Stir Fry Vege

Table full of food! =D
