Assam Laksa At Our Own Cafe & Sightseeing In Penang

After the walking and sightseeing, we are ready to visit Our Own Cafe to taste their Assam Laksa. The time was about 11:15 am. Too early for the lunch crowd. We were the only customers at that time.

Checking out the menus.
We ordered 2 mixed fruit juice to share.
2 glasses of mixed fruit juice and 1 bowl assam laksa.
Delicious Assam Laksa with lots of fish meat.
1 bowl of Lemak Laksa.
This is our hot favourite. Will remember this for our next trip.
Not easy to choose between these two.
Freshly fried spring rolls for sharing.
Painting on the wall.
Antique hand held pole scale weighing machine on the wall.
Antique wooden table and chairs.
Door knocker
More photos from our walkabout and sightseeing.
#3 - Beautiful water lilies
#4 - Love the bright yellow center and purple petals of the water lilies.
#14 - Bicycle for rent.
Trishaws parked by the roadside, waiting for customers.

What is faith? It is the confident assurance that
something we want is going to happen.
it is the certainty that what we hope for is waiting for us,
even though we cannot see it up ahead.
(Hebrews 11:1, The Living Bible-TLB)
