Beach outing

Labor day....we labor not, so hubby proposed that we go to the beach side. The nearest beach is about 20 minutes drive, Sg. Batu somewhere further down to Teluk Kumbar. We went for breakfast at Sg. Tiram (famous for its toasted bread, coffee, half-boiled egg, nasi lemak etc...), the food is actually "so so" only but don't know why the place is so crowded, Penangnites must be having too much hot, spicy and tasty food, they now go for plain food for a change. We reached the beach at around 10am... there was one Malay family around, by the time we left, there were about 8-9 groups, all Malay folks, where are the rest of the folks??.... shopping for great bargains at the shopping complexes I guessed. We had fun at zero cost...
