100+ units sold. Not hot as per EW standard. I think they overpriced. Investors who are not familiar with Penang better drive to paya terubong to understand the environment. Quite challenging..this location makes semenyih look good.

Over expensive at Paya Terubong.
I am penangite.

Foods at hawker stall beside the road is not bad.

Parking lots are limited. Might have to park on the roadside if the household have more than one vehicle.
