Ok.............more pixs coming.............need to do some filtering...........

For geotagged photos on some other sites in Penang:
http://www.panoramio.com/user/408657

The plantation owner (Mr Chang) charges us different prices
MYR 25, MYR 35 and MYR 45 per pax (eat all you can!!!)
We took the MYR 45 package............but didn't eat alot (we ate about 10 kg of fruits) so the owner gave us a discount
3 person = MYR 100...........

P.S.....you might want to go there during sun set..............beautiful place........imagine eating D11, hor lor, red prawn.............and watching the sunset.........

BTW.......Planning to go there every year.................might organise a trip next year (or next season)
