Got back from Penang last night at almost 8pm. Flight delayed due to the rain but reached Kuching on time. Went to Penang it rained; came back it rained also.
Lots of things to update, lots of photos need to be editted. You will get lots of Penang posts this few weeks ;p
Initial plan was to stay at Batu Feringghi but after consulting some friends in Penang, they said that it’s not recommended because it’s very far from the city. Ended up made a booking with Oriental Hotel at the city but then a friend offered to let us stayed at his house for free. Cancelled the booking few days before the trip.
When we reached Penang, guess what!?!? The house is at Batu Feringghi! *LOL* Good thing we were given a car to drive else transportation will be a problem. Batu Feringghi to the city is like from Kuching to Damai/Santubong, that kind of distance. Imagine that hahaha…
Every night we reached home after 12.30am and slept at around the earliest 1.30am or the latest 2am+. Every morning we went out at 10am+. Summore, 4 persons sharing a bathroom and a toilet. It’s not really that bad, there’s a kitchen sink to be utilised also.
Found out that many places especially the shopping complexes in Penang only open after 11am or so, therefore not much to see before 11am.
Skipped breakfast every morning and had brunch instead. Ate too little food there due to time constraint. Missed out many food and places. People had been telling us that we can cover the whole Penang in a short time but it turned out not very right ;p If just drive around the whole island in one day, it is possible but if you really want to visit/explore many places or eat many food in few days time, it is not possible at all!
Basically this is the summary. Detailed posts will come.
By the way, if you notice, I used to be very kiasu in covering new places or events in Kuching last time but these few months, I don’t do anything like this anymore. One thing is due to my weekend classes and another thing is that I’m quite lazy and busy hahaha… Wrong timing also. I also don’t have the mood to do it also, wonder why? Hmm…
Anyway, stay tuned for my Penang posts 😉 Let me reward you with one photo:
