After eating, we went to Institut Penyelidikan Perikanan which is also known as Penang Aquarium in Batu Maung. We didn’t pay to go in, didn’t plan to go in also because no photo taking allowed ;p Summore, they were closing too.
We just walked around the outside and see whatever was out there. You could touch the turtle but I didn’t touch.
The baby turtle in the tub, my first time coming in close encounter with turtles and my it was my first time to see real starfish! ;p
I always thought I dare to hold the starfish with my bare hands but after seeing them… It groosed me out! HAHAHA! There were also salt water fish in the aquarium.
You think sea cucumber is delicious? NAH! See this! Dare to eat? They are incredibly UGLY! EW! GROSS! However… I didn’t lost my appetite and I still like sea cucumber soup! ;p
These are called hmm… Forgot what’s the name ;p Pelf should know well. Is it River Terrapin?
You see the big sign on top of the mountain, “SOUTHPAY”? Next up, we will go there.

bengbeng, there are still a lot more that we got no chance to go 🙂 Thanks for enjoying my posts.
mistyeiz, not me rajin ;p we didn’t even do much research for our Penang trip hahaha… We went there like some blind mouse. Didn’t know where to go and so on, good thing we had friends that brought us around else we also won’t find these places. Hehehe…. Don’t worry, you’ll be home soon!
Wah..even outside the aquarium already have so much things to see…I wonder what will be inside the aquarium…
That red starfish, is that real?
P/S: link added. Cheers.
IguanaKia, the starfish is REAL! 😉 Yea, even outside alsoready got things to see, inside got more but since cannot take pic in there so didn’t want to go in ;p Thanks for the link add.
Those aren’t river terrapins. They look like Malayan box turtles (Cuora amboinensis) with their signature yellow stripe by the ears.
By the way, people don’t call starfish anymore these days. They’re called “sea star”, which I think makes more sense 😀
pelf, hehehe thanks. Oh is it? Sea star? Yea, it does make more sense.
