Surviving the food capital on veggie food

It was a major test.  Will I finally succumb to meat in Penang?  The food list is endless.  Will I get to enjoy the place when this time, my food list will be limited to a plant-based diet?  Here are some tips and signs.

1.  Travel with broad-minded friends who respect your individuality.  Some of them don't mind sharing veggie meals with you.

2.Go heavy on fruit juices.  It is mostly fresh and very cheap.  The other 'unspirited' drinks are also very cheap.

iced coffee

cooling sugar cane juice (I had mine without sugar)

power juice for lunch

3.  The world conspires with you.  It will send a guide...  Mine is Rory.  She just popped into our place on the second day.  It turned out she knows well about vegetarianism and knows a lot of cool places to eat.
