Penang Street Art (The Lego Stickers)

This is not a painting but rather large paper printouts pasted on the wall of an alley at Ah Quee Street. This Lego mural was originally drawn by Ernest Zacharevic in Johor but due to a controversy surrounding it, the mural was removed by the local authority there. Someone has found a way to replicate the mural here in George Town.

Penang Food: Satay




Satay is the famous meat-on-a-stick and is a traditional Malay food also commonly found in Penang. It is typically made from marinated meat such as chicken, mutton or beef, which is then skewered onto bamboo sticks and grilled over fires of charcoals. A fresh salad of cucumbers and onions are often served together with a spicy-sweet peanut dipping sauce for the satay. Ketupat, a Malay rice cake usually in the shape of a white rice cube, is also sometimes served together with satay.
