Teluk Bahang Roundabout Penang
On my way to the Penang Butterfly Farm, I passed by this roundabout. People like us who are not Penang locals will find this landmark useful if we want to go to Teluk Bahang wet market, Mutiara Beach Resort, Penang Cultural Centre and also the Pantai Aceh Forest Reserve, Penang National Park and Teluk Bahang Forest Park (Taman Rimba Teluk Bahang). Teluk Bahang in malay means 'heated bay'. It is a fishing village at the northwestern tip of Penang Island.
As I was passing by this place, I was excited over other things, like this free range village chicken who is free to roam the streets. Now, I hardly get to see the live ones in the city. My children only get to view the fried ones at KFC, McDonald's, and perhaps the live ones they get to see at the zoo, holiday resorts or when they balik kampung. It has also been a long time since I heard a mother hen clucking noisily or a rooster crowing happily early in the morning.

I also get to sample very delicious roti canai, our very own Malaysian 'flying pancake' with egg at a mamak stall overlooking this roundabout.
