What can one buy with 30 cents in Penang?


Apong Guan! 30 cents for a nice fluffy piece of flour that has a hint of coconut, corn and banana. A healthy snack that is available from the early morning and hopefully till tea time.

Freshly prepared from the time you shout through the car window "uncle, 5 pieces"
Such a simple item but yet so satisfying for only 30 cents.
