What/Where is Ban San? Ban San is a place that u could get vegetables, seafood, poultry... basically it's anything that you need for your day to day life. So where is this Ban San? hehehe.... "Ban San" in Penang means wet market. Errrrrr.... guess what? for my past years i think i could use 10 fingers to calculate the visit to the wet market... a place that is forbidden for TZ.... TZ don't like the place as the place is so dirty and full of smelly water on the ground... people just squeezed through without even saying excuse me... :(

He just teased me that i would just stand outside the Ban San or just waited for my uncle to finish his marketing in the car.... yaya! you were WRONG! i stepped into the Ban San... *Hiak Hiak*
Our first stop! The sundry shop .... Please don't underestimate the small little sundry shop... which carries lots of different products... Do you see any Canned food that you would buy from Tesco, Carrefour in this sundry shop... :p
