Hawker Stall/Cafe etiquette (Penang)

Hi all! We've been in Penang for a week now and so far so good. It's a breeze compared to China. I'm curious if anyone can help me out with some etiquette at cafes, hawker stalls and the Indian restaurants. Just not sure how to order. Do I sit down first, order food first or get my drinks and go from there? Not really sure and don't want to look like the newbie tourist. Too late probably:) if anyone wants to meet to teach me the ropes I'm down for that too. Right now we're around gurney. Thanks everyone.
