Due to the current rainy season, the Penang Waterfall Garden or Botanical Garden really lives up to its name of having a waterfall. Usually, during the dry season, the river dried up and you may wonder why it is call Waterfall Garden when you cannot find waterfall.
The water is clean (or at least it looks sparkling clean) so my hubby takes the two younger kids there for a quick dip in the evenings.
So, after the dip, we sometimes dropped by the Craft Batik factory for fresh fruit juice and roti canai.
Craft Batik has a section where you can see the skilled batik painters turn plain, white clothes into these Malaysian beauties. I am fascinated with their skills. Craft Batik is located before the main entrance of Botanical Garden.
There is an old Malay man selling roti canai outside the factory. The price is a bit more expensive than other stalls but we like his roti canai. I love the fish curry that comes with the roti canai.
I found a fruit stall just outside the Botanical Garden selling this nuts. Or is it beans? In Hokkien, we call it ‘ang moh tor tau’ or ‘mat salleh nuts’. Not sure what’s the name of it but it is not often found nowadays. Long time ago, there were lots of stalls selling the kacang kuda and this beans but lately, this type of ang mor tor tau is rare.
The roti canai man also sells this karipap. He put the karipap on his roti canai pan to heat it up and it is delicious. Crispy on the outside and the hot curry potato inside plus the sourish, pickled onions.
