well, this isn't really a big 'things to do' tip, but the food in Penang was so amazing, that it would be a shame if you didn't entertain yourself just a little bit by watching them make is generally made quickly and before your eyes....and, you may just get a mini-show if you watch the people at coffeshops or hawker stalls make something for you, while you watch through the lens of your camera.

if you've read my into to Penang, you can tell that I was super impressed by the roti.....what follows are the stages of getting the roti from the dough, to my plate....
