Around Penang (cont.)

Some photos taken today...

The first and 2nd floor of this building below look like abandoned spaces.

We had lunch in the cafe in Spice Garden, which is in Batu Ferringhi not far away from the hotel. The special for the day was Chicken Briyani Rice, which was nice. The view from the deck was fantastic and it was shady below a couple of hugh trees.

There were a number of monkeys (I think they are monkeys, but otherwise some sort of primate...) making a nuisance of themselves on the branches above us  on the deck where we had lunch (you can see one of them in the middle of the third picture below). They were peeling leaves from the trees and throwing them onto the deck as you can see in the first picture below, then jumping from branch to branch and also peeing onto the deck! We did not think it was funny when we were eating and moved to a safer table! I have often wondered how the term cheeky monkeys came about.




We saw this interesting flower below in Spice Garden. It looks like a bit like a hibiscus...
