Penang oh Penang...I went there recently with a few friends(Ning, Jun, Dora and Esther) of mine. For around 5 days 4 nights, though the duration is only about 3 days plus only. The other time were all on train, bus, plane and etc. The trip was indeed a very enjoyable and full of experiences. There were lot of delays from start till end. Let's start with the plane to KL, yeah, we flew to KL n not Penang. There were no cheaper ticket available. The plane gt delayed and we actually reach LCCT KL at about 12 something. Then we took a bus to KL Central and reached there about 2am. Wow, checked in the hotel and slept at about 3am.
After that, we woke up and had our early breakfast. Rush our way to KL Central and then had some hard time finding the bus station which could bring us from KL to Penang. It was indeed a very hard experience finding the bus terminal. And we got trolled. We gt conned by some guy which sold us a ticket which cost RM5 more expensive than normal and a bus which would only start moving one hour later. The bus gt delayed and we reached Penang at about 6pm. A trip which would normally took 4 and a half hours turned into a 7 hour trip.
So, what did we do in Penang. A lot of special things of course. Such as eating, visiting shopping malls, going on ferry from Penang to Butterworth and otherwise, taking the bus around Penang and etc. We saw Penang's YB and some movie superstar. Got lost in the place we stayed and felt creepy staying around there when we first got there. Saw lots of scary views as we still don't know how things work around there. Ate char keow teaw, the best one, penang's asam laksa, rozzelle drink, lekor, cheap satay, durian and etc.
The shopping was quite big but not as big as the ones in KL. Lol, but still I bought 4 clothes at Penang. Haha, other than transport and accommodation, that's where I spend the most. Went to Prangin Mall, Komtar, Sunway Carnival Plaza, Gurney Plaza and Queensbay Mall for shopping. Walk and walk and walk. Shop till I drop. Anyway, gotta thanks to Kyry and Chiew Ying for bringing us around. If not, we would definitely be lost and don't know what to do in the big Penang. Haha, they brought us to place to have fun and eat lots of local delicacies. And not forgetting the souvenirs they introduced to us.
Well, that's all for the first 4 days and now to the last day of all, the day we went back to our beloved hometown. We woke up as early as 5am and went to the jetty at around 5.45am. Reached there early and took the ferry to Butterworth. Then we waited for the train. The train should have reach around 2pm but in the end it reached at about 3.30pm. It got delayed as there were problem with the aircond and some wire in the train. Took the bus to LCCT KL. Luckily this one didn't bring any trouble. Checked in and ate some food. Plane was not delayed and I can gladly tell u all that, I am back home now! To my beloved Sibu!^^
