Balik Pulau, a small town in Penang.
XY discussing with his mum on the neat, well organized bus terminal and not to forget the new bus system.
I could only recall visiting this small town when I followed my dad on one of his trips here to buy some piglets for our farm .There used to be many pig farms over here. Recently, my son requested me to take him over there for he had not been there since young. Furthermore he would be leaving for his first new job in Middle East, Abu Dhabi in 3 days' time.
As usual , our main motive was to eat some tasty food that was considered "Ho Chiak" ( tasty in Hokkien Dialect).
Along the journey, I found that certain stretches of the roads have been broadened and some had not for the state Government had yet to acquire the land to do so. Well, our ride was very smooth on that Sunday morning.

A lot of green enhances this market
Children's playground too...one of the best markets
As usual, I was reading my newspaper while having my breakfast.
