ZOOM Penang!

Finally!! we got out of Singapore ... Nov ... Dec ... was hectic for us.  Weddings after weddings after weddings ... don't get me wrong I love weddings!!! ... but its too tiring cos almost every week we had at least 1 wedding or max 8 weddings O_O ... Thou its not an excuse to fly lah ... hee hee.

OK Jom ... Zoom Penang!!! oklah feeling feeling Suria gitu.

First stop ... Hard Rock.  Since we did not manage to get a room there we decided to take a cab there for dinner.  And dinner was AWESOME!! 

 From L to R: Popiah, BBQ Beef Ribs, Perchik Burger & Potato Munchkins

and after dinner went back to hotel to buat taik mata as usual.  As we get older we prefer to sleep more.

Here are some of the places we visited while in Penang.

Peranakan Mansion: Beautiful decors and antiques.  This sweet and friendly Bibik Annie will be there to greet you at the entrance.  If you are lucky, you will get her warm hug and blessing.

 From L to R: Bibik Annie & Le Hubby

Fort Cornwallis:  This is one of the must see places cos its one of the history topic I learnt in school

 Fort Cornwallis

Clan Jetties: Back in the days, chinese immigrants came together (in there clan) and settled down along the waterfront.  We managed to visit Chew Jetty. It was cool.  I understand that they also provides home-stay.  It would be a good experience kan to stay in of these houses?! ...
