Working weekend in Penang

Last weekend would be the last free weekend for me. From this weekend until end of this year would be occupied with work as my project's roadshows has kicked off. Since the kids are done with their exams, I have decided to drag them along. At least they can stay in the hotel and enjoy themselves at the pool or kids
club while mom is working. Papa, of course would be the official babysitter.

This weekend would be the Penang week. We will be making our way to Penang on Friday evening and Insyallah, should arrive before midnight. It was not easy to convince MBH to come along. He don't really like to go to the northern part of our country. Can't blame him, everytime we came to this part, we never fail to encounter bad experience. I pray let this trip be a smooth one so that I can do my work and leave and when we leave I get to see my family's happy faces to make up for the loss time of spending time together.

Nevertheless, I was eyeing to visit some famous Penang place after work which will end approximately at 6pm to 7pm. Let see the lists :

Nasi Kandar

I really look forward to enjoy the famous Nasi Kandar. Some recommended me to go to Line Clear, some said to go to Hameediyah while others sworn by the Nasi Kandar Mohd Rafee. Everytime I come to Penang I always tell myself to have the Nasi Kandar but ended up just having one at Pelita Jalan Ampang the next day due to tight schedule. That's evident everytime I come to Penang it's for work. Hopefully, I get to enjoy a plate this time.

Halal Char Kuey Teow and Laksa

Can someone please recommend me where can I get my hands on this. I have been told many many times Penang has the most delicious and authentic CKT and laksa. CKT may be a challenge to find a halal one. But I  am sure some one can direct me to a halal one so that I can enjoy the true meaning of Penang local hawker food.

Pardon my ignorance, this is the 2 food I know off in Penang. Please feel free to recommend. And please consider I am going to be there only for 2 days and can only do this on Saturday night. Day time working and Sunday have to make a move to KL....

I hope this time around it will be a good experience in Penang so that I can persuade MBH for us to come again.
