Second Bridge Penang And Teochew Cendol

After the scrumptious lunch in Nibong Tebal, we proceeded on with our journey to Penang Island. For the first time, we took the New Bridge and it led us to Batu Maung...
The toll that led us to the new bridge....
Called The Sultan Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah
or Penang Second Bridge as it is commonly known...
Surprisingly it was very quiet on a weekday....
 a great contrast compared to the first Penang bridge...
Not a car in sight.....
I heard it was filled with 60,000 people just last Sunday Marathon...
I heard the toll rate for this bridge is more....  a distance of 42 KM?
Reaching Penang, we went to Prangin Mall to get something done....
And while we were down, we chanced upon this place...
They opened a branch here in the mall?  
At least we don't have to queue up in the hot sun...
Penang Famous Cendol.....
One bowl cost RM3.90
Slightly more than the Penang Road.....
I don't mind paying a bit more to enjoy this cooling drink here......
Nice scenery... comfortable and chilling...
COOL!!

  3. At first I told you wrote Paradigm Mall because it also has this same cendol stall. Then I thought, eh, Paradigm Mall is not in Penang and then I thought you were in KL. Me so blur. Then only I read carefully it is Pragin Mall. I also prefer to pay more to eat in comfort.

  5. When I see cendol I straightaway think of SS15 cendol.. Very famous cendol and rojak (they're always together), and people have to queue up for the rojak.. Everyday super long queue leh...

  8. Not 42km lah, the official distance is 25km. The full marathon runners run almost the entire stretch and then turn back. Not many people uses this bridge yet, even on weekends. Unless you are in Batu Maung area, using this bridge is more inconvenient that the first bridge. The distance is longer, and you need to get through many traffic lights/road construction to get there. Maybe more people will use it once that flyover is completed.

  17. Teochew Cendol? I'm a Teochew myself, but I didn't know there's difference among the various types of Cendol. How interesting!
