Instameet Penang Georgetown Festival

Last weekend was a great short getaway with the crew from @igersmalaysia and met some new friends. 2 cars, 8 people (some newly met) on a road trip down to Penang.
Look! Things igers do to take a good shot
We went on a Saturday while the instameet is supposed to happen on the next day. What's Penang without savouring the good food there? Our first stop - Pasar Awam Ayer Hitam...

My simple breakier there but I can't get use to the food. Out of all the things that I've picked, the egg is the only nice one.
Our pick up for island hopping was at 8.30am so we still have some time to explore around and we decided to just walk around the hotel area. One thing I've to say is that I've never seen any petrol station at Krabi. They have a kiosk like the pic below:
