My Penang Trip! (Part Two)
Dear Friends & Families,
Here is the second part of my life story at Penang. Previously, I stopped at the Gurney Drive where one of the seller so rude in a manner. Well, have no choice, my girl and I ran to a nearby bus stop or taxi stand to take shelter from the heavy rain. I can say that both of us is totally wet from top to bottom. Don’t ask me how is about in and out.
Waited a while and the taxi stand and look at my beloved. So pity of her get wet. Then we took a taxi back to the jetty and is cost us RM 40 if I never forgotten after the heavy rain. I still remembered one of the nice taxi driver shelter me with an umbrella to the taxi. He even said how nice if this was lady. Hahahaha.. Went in the taxi and I saw.. WTF! The taxi driver is Ferrari fans. All the Shell’s Ferrari model car he has. Some even is till in the box haven’t open yet. After a few chat with him and I ask him whether the Ferrari model car is for sale. Too sad is not.. That night was raining heavily, inside the taxi we have a hard time looking outside from inside. The rain did rain hard that day, even one road has a little flood till the ankle length. After reaching the jetty, we need to wait for a while before the ferry starts. I took of my shoes and socks to let it dry a bit. First time, I got my favourite New Balance shoes soaked in water.
Skip the ferry part, we arrived the other side of the jettywhich is the resort jetty, during that time is still grizzling the staff inside the ferry handed us an umbrella which is huge enough for both of us. (The staff should be ferry conductor) When we reached to the pickup point and there is my private buggy and the same staff help us with our new bag and send us back to our chalet. Nice fellow. Thumbs up for you and the ferry conductor. When back to our chalet we get out wet clothes off and changed to our clean clothes and we unpacked our bag of “Tau sa peh”. There is some boxes get wet and my beloved was so cute use the hair dryer to dry it up. It works! Some of the boxes looks a bit off but the biscuits still dry because it has plastic wrapper. YES! Next day morning, wokeup around 8.30am get ready and called our private car up to pick us down to have our breakfast at the Santapan Restaurant. Did I get the name rite? That day it didn’t serve buffet breakfast instead we can choose either nasi lemak with rendang chicken or American Style breakfast which is toast, jam and butter, wedges, eggs and etc. Browse my photos then you will know. Order each one, where my beloved took nasi lemak and I took American style. We thought the breakfast buffet but when we’re going out from the restaurant the waitress ask us to pay for the extra set that I’ve ordered. Amuse here! No buffet but you stated buffet in the coupons. Well just couple of bucks. Paid it off.
Next, called the private car to send us back to our chalet and get ready for our one hour aromatherapy massage. My beloved don’t know what she is doing that made us late for couple of minutes till the Therapist called us. We walk over there because is just beside our chalet. We were greeted by 2 lady and show us which type of massage oils that we prefer. I took the relax and my beloved took the rejuvenate. We were asked to a small chalet which is Balinese style change into robe and just with our bottom only. Gosh! first time naked infront of someone that I don’t know. After lye down the therapist lay a blanket over our back of the body and start massage.. Photos at my album that you can view. Shame to tell you guys that I snore while massaging. hahahahahaha… I slept.. The massage was superb but one thing need to say is that the therapist massage my calf that time very pain. Other part of the body.. erm.. like no feeling. well don’t think other wise. AFter the massage we went to the reception of the Spa and have our Ginger Tea. Is really does GINGER tea! lotsa ginger.. took a few sips.
Walked back to our chalet and my beloved took a shower and pack stuff ready to head home. After everything called our private car to send us down to the reception to check out and have some photos. The she send us to the jetty. Waited a while we board the ferry and head to the other side. Watching back the island that I spent few days. Going to miss it. After reaching the other side, went over to the ticket counter and confirm my taxi to the airport. Took a while the taxi arrived to pick us up. We have the staff carry our bags into the taxi. Poor him, that he didn’t knew that the other bag is so tad heavy. The taxi cost us around RM 27. When we arrived at the airport I saw the bis that able to bring us to the jetty. WTF!!! Then I pointed at bus and tell my beloved. What the hell is this. Even the airport staff don’t know there is a bus? or they just want us to hire taxi? Conspiracy? Took a trolley put our bags on it and my beloved when to scout around for last minute shopping. She bought some stuff and we head to check-in and security check. Sometime I do think when my bag went over the security scanner what will the security personnel thinks? my bag full with “tau sa peh”. People mostly smuggle alchol and other stuff but mine is “tau sa peh”? It must be kidding! We planned to check-in my bag but at last both our bag check-in at it cost us another RM 20. When I place my bag on the weighting machine which I think it is. I saw there is a display, displaying my bag is 9.5KG+! OMYG!!!! I’ve been carrying so heavy bag this while?
After we’ve checked-in, we went to McDonalds. Yes again… take some light food. Chicken porridge. Guess what.. After paying my meal while I’m walking back to my seat. Walking towards me is a Dato/DAtuk. I’m afraid I called the wrong thing so I didn’t say Hi or anything. You know our Malaysia there is so many “pangkat” or post that given out to each individual. During my school days, we were told that if we mention the wrong post we might get pinalized. The Dato that I mentioning is currently fighting for the second MCA post. Datuk DR.Chua Soi Lek. We board the same plane back to KL. Well, feel thats enough from me.. if want to more of the place, I’ve included the links and photos album below. Happy Browsing!
