We went to Penang on Christmas.
Drove all the way from KL to Penang with the heavy traffic, it’s really tiring enough.
It has been decades since we last been to Penang.
Thanks God, my phone GPS was being good and guided us real well.
reached Penang on about 8pm.
Someone was so stubborn and refused to book a room beforehand,
we ended up calling 20+ hotels which are all fully booked. grrrrhhhh!!!
There’s only a few resorts rooms left, cost about rm800-rm1000 per night. fml.
like oh no, do we really need to end up at those crazily expensive rooms which is definitely not worth it??!! @@
no, we later on got a room in a hotel which cost only rm250 per night. we thought, we are god damm lucky.
and, hmmm, the hotel failed us big time. it was pathetic, we got really disappointed.
learned a lesson, never go on a trip on an extra peak season, WITHOUT booking a room.
First of all, it isn’t a beach hotel which means no romantic beach walking and so. :(
and also, this is probably the worst hotel we have been.
it’s small and smelled.
with dirty towel, stained bed sheet and… *as shown below* …..
no choice. took a quick bath then we went to meet up with Ah wan and the girlfriend.
Had dinner together at Gurney Drive Hawker Center.
Saw a char kuey teow stall with a lot of people queuing up. It must be good, i thought.
Ordered a plate with cost only rm3.50. & no doubt, it’s good.
fried oyster, as an accompaniment. slurrpsss.
we finished our dinner on about 1a.m.was to tired to explore the place.
went back, and straight fall asleep despite the unflavorable condition of the room.
next morning, washed up and ready up, & it’s another brand new day.
the amount of mirrors in the room is the only consolation. craps.
The journey then continue by exploring good food at Pulau Tikus.
stopped by this curry puff stall, and there’s this old auntie(lady on the bottom left of the photo) that spoke to us.
she said, those curry puffs are awesome. she loves it and buy it from this man really often.
we bought 2, had a bite. & it’s really finger licking good!
It’s rm2.50 for one.
walked to the coffee shop nearby, ordered wantanmee.
& a plate of Indian style char kuey teow.
It’s too egg-ish for me. I didn’t really like it.
then, off to Kek Lok Shi.
It’s was so terribly jam, we used the time pretty wisely, by, camwhoring. ^^
paid rm2 and got up to the majestic kek lok shi pagora.
hit on the bell, which the chinese believe by doing so your wish will come true. :)
can i make a wish that all my other wishes will come true? hee!
The garden style temple has really caught my heart.
It is so pretty, couldn’t resist, and took a photo with it.
the omg poser wanted a photo too. :)
then we thought we should have a photo together with the banyak beautiful punya view.
but, as you see, we, FAILED.
Randomly i went to a tourist there and request her to help us with a photo.
& she was kind enough.
cheh, not saying me la, talking bout the background.
& suddenly, i feel like going to China!!!!
AHEM… sorry to say.
but this is the only non-human photo captured that I am satisfied with.
please allow me to bribe you people with this pair of cute lil red shoes. ^^
wanted to take the cable car up to see the magnificence kuan yin statue.
yes, I am one who always got attracted to the chinese culture and arts. to me, there are all beautiful.
but, intention lost immediately when we see the queue. It was as long as the great wall.
yes, I am exaggerating. but still, the queue was really way too long.
decided to drive up instead, just to get myself amazed by the statue. yes.
my chinese zodaic sign is a sheep.
had a photo with it before I left the place.
The nearest next location shown in my GPS is the penang hill.
but hmm, it was omfg crowded too.
also, due to the hot weather, we decided to cancel the plan of going up there.
we later on decided to go around Penang by car instead.
we dropped by at a beach in batu ferrengghi.
to fulfill the romantic beach walk thingy.
but hmm, the beach was crowded and isn’t clean.
macam mana romantic? potong steam sudahhhhh!
i contrasted kaokao, to make the sand looks white. fml.
someone is loving the christmas present i get him.
i knew you gonna like it! hee! ❤
drove back to KL right after that.
okayla, though the hotel and beach failed me.
but, I had fun at Kek Lok Shi and enjoyed the local food.
so, it’s still wasn’t that bad afterall. ❤
