Fun Trip to Penang & Ipoh with Kiddos!
This is a long overdue post but I reckon it’s better late than not documenting it right? As you know, year end is filled with holidays and it’s a good time to bring your kids for a family getaway. This time, I decided to bring the kiddos for a Cuti-Cuti Malaysia; to the north side (Penang and Ipoh) for a foodie trip. We have major love for food and travel, so traveling to Penang and Ipoh is like killing two birds with a stone coz we get jalan-jalan and also eat lots of delicious Penang & Ipoh food! Here are the interesting highlights of our Northern Escapade to Penang & Ipoh:- When going on a road trip with baby, infant or toddler, make sure they are strapped in the car seat. We reached Penang after about 4 hours of driving and were feeling hungry hence our first stop was Kafe Kheng Pin (群賓茶餐室) @ Penang Road for the best lobak in Penang! Ask the locals here, they will agree that Lor Bak @ Kheng Pin is awesome. This is the stall to for super delicious Lor Bak @ Kheng Pin Cafe. Love the crispy prawn fritters, lobak (five spice rolls) and tauhu; simply delicious! If you want mains to go with the loh bak, can try the wantan mee from the Wan Thung Mee stall. Their noodles are quite wet; tossed with lots of sauce. If you like the “wet” version, you’ll love this. Next stop was to get thin and crispy Ban Chang Kuih (曼煎糕) @ Anson Road. This stall is just opposite Anson Road Market and infront of Lok Pin Cafe. You can choose the standard fillings of crushed peanuts and corn for the Ban Chang Kueh or you can choose from a variety of other savory fillings like ham + cheese, hot dog, chicken meat floss and egg + tuna fish to name a few. Bought a Sausage + Cheese flavor. Can’t stand the nice aroma and so we decided to just makan inside the car only. HoJiak. Love the crispy texture of the Ban Chang Kueh.

So happy that I managed to get the best...
