Some Time In Malaysia

A few of my coworkers have been complaining that I haven’t posted any pictures of our trip to Malaysia this year.  So, here y’all are.  Pics!

Garden

The garden just outside where I usually work.

The garden out the other window, from inside, with the bars and laundry and all; typical Malaysia.

Freight Scooter

A gas canister on a delivery bike. These guys carry anything and everything on those little 150cc bikes.

Stall

A stall with seating. This one is in Penang, famous for it’s Asam Laksa. Apparently the building this stall was in is a short cut to somewhere. We kept getting scooters coming through between us and that cluster of people in the background.

Temple

Us in Penang at the temple up on the mountainside. Torino suddenly found something more interesting than the camera. Yap, he’s gonna have attention issues just like his papa.

Vista

Penang from the temple up on the mountainside. That’s George Town in the distance. Closer in is Air Itam.

Temple

Torino with Poh Poh (Grandma) and Gon Gon (Grandpa) in Penang at the temple up on the mountainside. He’s become such a ham for the camera.

Torino

Torino had a crush on one of the little statuete animals at the temple.

Freight Scooter

This is a food cart, like a food truck, except on the back of one of those little 150cc bikes.

No Durian

The ubiquitous “No Durian” sign. Durian is a local fruit that some people like to eat. It’s extremely smelly, by which I mean, “It stinks to high heaven.” Most hotels ban it.

Architecture

It’s common to see shiny new buildings next to old dilapitated, run down, moldy structures like this. This was in Penang.

Stall

Another stall. This one doesn’t have it’s own seating, but since we were there on a lazy Saturday morning, they had tables set up in the parking lot for the auto shop next door. This is Torino and Poh Poh (Grandma).

Stall

Teh Tarik

Teh Tarik (pulled milk tea) at another stall with seating. This is my favorite morning drink. Torino with Mama.

Drain

The gutters on the side of the road are usually open and deep. They get astounding flash-floods there sometimes (and this from a guy living in central Texas).

Beef Balls

The juvenile delinquent in me.

Ice Guy

This guy was cutting and delivering ice from the back of a peddle-pulled bicycle cart. They use the ice to make these shaved ice desserts with Asian things in them, like red beans and slimy green jellies.

Village

This is a village in Penang. This is one of the common village styles. Ha! I say “style” like it’s planned or something. It’s just a low row of shops all hawking wares and foodstuffs.

Stall

A typical restaurant. It’s more like a stall with seating. Most of our meals are at places like this.

Monkeys

Torino wanted to play with the monkeys, but we wouldn’t let him. We’re big meanies.

Exploring

Torino and The Daddyman (that’s me) found a secret path with a cool stone arch. The monkeys avoided this area for some reason which we never determined.
