Seeing as today was a public holiday I decided to head to Yeng Keng Hotel for lunch. I was surprisingly pleased that it wasn’t busy, I had a parking spot, and I was the first customer for lunch.
(Above pictures) Took these shots courtesy of my Canon 10-22mm lens and Speedlite 580EX II. Believe it or not you drive along that path to get to the parking area. Someone obviously forgot their shoes. The staff were pleasant, the décor was pleasing, and yes, I had a nice time.
(Below) I ordered the char hor fun (broad noodles) which at RM15 wasn’t that pricey. The portion was big too.
(Above) For dessert I chose their orange cake with whipped cream and mixed fruits. I liked it and the single espresso that I had after that was one of the strongest I’d ever experienced—it felt more like drinking pure coffee powder.
(Below) After the meal I climbed some stairs to get a better vantage point and took some pictures of Chulia Street. Yeng Keng Hotel is located in the heart of Penang, which has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site. As you can see it was a lovely afternoon and my Hoya HD polarizer certainly saturated the blue sky.
That’s Yeng Keng Hotel on the left with the orange roof. They have some nice rooms too; I was allowed to view one but they said photography was forbidden. Oh well.Tags: Canon 10-22mm ultra wide angle zoom, Canon 18-135mm IS zoom lens, Canon 580EX II Speedlite, Canon EOS 550D, polarizer
