Our trip to Penang

It was a tiring 2 weeks before the CNY break for both of us. Rushing to finish off work before the long break and last minute shopping plus crazy ass traffic around town. It was a stressful time for us !! However, the plus point is that we will not be driving to Penang for CNY this year but flying in instead...Wooohooo....double woohoo~~

We were at LCCT early coz of kiasu-ness and to avoid being late. You never know with everyone rushing to fly back to their hometown. Had some lunch at Old Town Kopitiam and lepak for a while before entering the departure lounge. And of course to try out the newly downloaded app Photosynth (recommended by Ms WC).

 The first thing that I ate when we reach Penang was Curry Mee (tapao-ed by MIL). Was too excited and forgot to snap a photo. Telan the whole damn thing instead. It was my favourite Curry Mee from the Mt Erskine's pasar. *burp*


After eating the reunion dinner at night, it was time to prepare the angpaos. And Bob the Rilakkuma being his helpful self, help to guard the angpaos after the task was completed. See the pose below.


 Penang changes everytime we visit and now they have another 2 more shopping malls (according to a reliable source...hehe). First Avenue mall (located near Prangin mall and Paragon (near G Hotel) are the newly opened malls. We did not get a chance to walk around First Avenue coz it was a bit far from our place but we managed to go to the nearer mall Paragon. There are only F&B outlets opened and it was a bit quiet (weird).

Don't know why the color contrast. Maybe because one of the area is shaded and the other not. Paragon is facing the sea (Gurney Drive). This is not just a mall, but a high end mall, shop lots and residency. The F&B outlets that we saw are Brussels Beer Cafe, TGIF, Italianne's, Pacific Coffee, Goku Raku Ramen, CBTL and a Taiwanese desserts house. Great place to hangout and yumchar as the place is not crowded. But parking's a bitch though coz it's opened air and the first 2 hours is RM3 with subsequent fee of RM2 per hour. It's pure daylight robbery!
