Hello lovelies, aren’t you glad that it’s Thursday already?
Picture taken at the beach of Hard Rock Hotel Penang.
Over the weekend, I took a little break to the north of Malaysia for a mini-vacation before year 2011 comes to an end.
It’s been a year with ups and downs, but I am glad that I am still breathing…and enjoying good food 😀
I have been to Penang for at least 10 times but this is my far most adventurous trip because together we discovered so many sides & sceneries of Penang that we have never seen before.
Picture taken at Air Itam Water Dam. It’s a hidden road after Kek Lok Si. Follow the back way up and you will find this beautiful view. When we were there, there was no other ‘tourists’ but only locals who jogged in the morning. It’s quiet, tranquil, and peaceful. It’s not heavily advertised tourist spot hence not many know about it.
Of course, what’s a good trip without food? 😉
The crab claypot rice was from Bukit Tambun while the rest of dishes were from Bali Hai restaurant, along the Gurney drive. Hands up shell lovers!
Besides the water dam, we discovered the Malaysia’s Mildford Sound (New Zealand).
It’s all the way after Batu Feringgi, and about 20 km of slightly windy roads. Not that nauseating but the hill roads are not very wide, just enough for 2 sedan cars to move concurrently. Not the best road to be taken but only if you are adventurous enough 😉
Had the best ‘loh mee’ (braised noodles) in life, with chicken feet and slices of pork in it!
And also fried kuay teow (flat rice noodles) in duck egg with larger-than-life prawns and mantis prawns.
Visited Taiping Lake Garden for the second time.
It’s a beautiful place with lots of green and water. I hope it stays that way
Hopefully 2012 will be a smooth sailing year ahead!
What is your best getaway of 2011 and any proudest achievement to share? 😀
