2D1N in Penang

Of course that is not including of 1 night spent travelling (miserably) on train. Ish! One lesson learnt - never travel on train during the night.

The good news is the train travel is one of the only two 'not so good' thing about my recent trip to Penang. Unfortunately, I have to reserve the second 'not so good' thing.. ish ish.. cannot be revealed in the blog it seems. Travelling with another 10 buddies is indeed fun and I experienced it for the first time. Had so much laughter and I think I never laughed that much collectively for the whole year! We took Gigs of photos and I am sure you'll be seeing them over and over again in FB and blogs.

Sharing some photos taken in Penang:

The group shot was taken by Rames. Thanks to his new wide lens, everyone were captured in the photo. We had a short performance by Kavilan (with his toy guitar) as well.

Places of interest along Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling.

How could a rojak lover like me miss the food in Penang? :-) It tasted good but pricey.

We moved to Waterfall Temple soon after having (what supposedly) our dinner, after which we went to the night market in Batu Feringgi. That is where I met the rudest hawkers in Malaysia. Thumbs down! However, after walking around for few hours, everyone felt hungry and we were off to Sri Anandha Bahgwan for another dinner supper.

The view of my hotel balcony was excellent. It's a pity that I didn't pay attention to it the day earlier. We started the Sunday with a trip to Air Itam Dam. It was so green! Loved it!

As we were a bit behind the schedule, the next few hours was an amazing race for all of us. We rushed to board the train which climbed up to the top of the hill. Apparently you can view the entire Penang from there (some even joked about spotting KLCC from there!) but I feel the view was hazy. A little disappointed there. Anyway, soon after we had to rush again to the jetty to board the ferry which brought us to the mainland. Boarded the bus right on time.


Geez! I wanna go on another vacation with the group again! Can't wait! :-D
