malaysia trip '13/'14

long post ahead
Hello helloo so I'm back from my 2ish week trip to Malaysia! I didn't take that many photos because well, I'm not exactly a tourist since I was born there, haha. 99% of these photos were taken on my phone even though I brought my dslr because it was so hot and humid and just yeah. (I was too lazy to carry the extra weight) Most of these photos were taken on our three day trip to an island/state called Penang, where my dad grew up in.
white & gold simplistic colour scheme

the bikie gang. we should've totally rented these and biked around town.

this famous cendol stall in Penang. cendol is a dessert consisting of coconut milk, shaved ice, palm sugar and green jelly like noodle things made out of rice flour +  we went to this 3d/interactive museum!

 view from a bridge.

Love Lane!

breakfast - roti canai with curry

duck noodles i think? + asam laksa

 kenny rogers - i loved going to this restaurant as a kid + nasi lemak

nasi kandar + teh o ais limau 

Did I mention Penang has really cool street art?
the minions seem to be super popular in malaysia - there's like minion merchandise everywhere, literally.

 wire sculptures like these were all over town!

+ signs like these.

these kuihs were so yummy. 

christmas decor + we ordered these passionfruit drinks and like 3/4 of it was basically ice so my (future) brother-in-law took it back to the shop and they gave us a free refill. #thingsyoucandoinmalaysia

my new favourite store called Kaison. they have the cutest things at really affordable prices + look at the minion plushie aw (and the one at the bottom lol)

a shop filled with chinese new year supplies + shopping malls in malaysia >>>> shopping malls in australia

we had sushi three days in a row + how my sister filled out a survey at this sushi restaurant ("would you return based on this visit?" "no because you gave me a blunt pencil")

 i told my sister to imitate the mannequins.

sunset on the plane. (or more like after sunset)

Andddd that's it. Editing took forever, haha. To the year 12 cohort last year, hope you all got the uni offers you wanted! I got my first preference so yay for that! (except I'm still not 100% sure if that's what I really wanna do but oh well) Officially a UQ student now!
