    Supermarket

    There are some small supermarkets along Batu Ferringhi where you can buy some supplies for cheap prices...it's better than buying some things at the hotel where you're staying...much cheaper and it's great to have a chat to the local shop owners too. We stopped by for lots of water and Coke...as well as chocolate and chips... ;)

    FLEEMARKET LORONG KULIT: A Ragbag & Jumble Of Odds & Ends

    Love it or loathe it, Penang's flea market at Lorong Kulit has gained quite a hiphop reputation among Malaysians and tourists alike. Formerly at Rope Walk it is for now next to City Stadium. Electric stuff, watches, shoes, second-hand goods, antique, well, try a good bargain.

    Maybe a true Thieves Market once today you may acquire the goods in a legal way. It is just fun to try and find you some bric-a-brac or excellent finds ...

    flea market = market, usually held outdoors, where antiques, used household goods, and curios are sold (good translation of French Marché-aux-puces)

    What to buy: The name of Lorong Kulit already is worth a while, so we went our way and managed to buy there our Rolex. However, if there is a kingdom of watches in Asia (near Hong Kong, Japan or Malaysia), its King will certainly be Rolex. This is because my Asian family is extremely fond of Rolex watches, I heard. Best time to get there is about 10 am when most of the traders would have displayed their goods ...

    What to pay: Paid about 30$ and enjoyed a long time this faky ...
