On the last day in Penang, we went to Ghee Hiang to pick up some pastries.

Unlike other stores, customers have to line up to place the order instead of picking up the products themselves.

We bought a few types of cookies back to Kuala Lumpur. Tau Sar Peah is a must.

We also bought Beh Teh Saw which is similar to Ipoh’s Heong Peah.

Then we bought Penang’s version of Heong Peah.

Penang’s version of Heong Peah is actually Ipoh’s version of Brown Sugar Cookies. This cookie has another unappetizing name which is “Lai Si Baeng” due to the shape of how the brown sugar being squeezed out of it.

I also bought some individually packed sesame oil which Ghee Hiang is reputable off. I did not buy the bottle version as I’m worried that any breakage will be a disaster.
