ohkay its been few weeks since i came back from Penang and i've just been crazily busy to say anything about it.
the Pearl of the Orient is officially my favorite state in Malaysia now!
the place is beautiful, the weather is great, the shops are gorgeous, and most importantly, the foooood is 'best ah!'
i guess we have Francis Light to thank for because after he gained control of Penang so quickly, there were gorgeous mansions and shops built on the island. I thinketh it may have been an area for the rich back in time.
(erm i'm just guessing since there aren't so many nice historical architecture in malacca or ipoh or johor or elsewhere)
anyway, all of these beautiful mansions were now mostly sold to companies so you can see beautiful mansions being banks or bridal houses or universities...
and there were trees trees trees everywhere! selangor gov please stop chopping huge historical trees down! please take a leaf out of Ipoh municipal council's book and start insuring our trees!
so, about the trip:
five hours of travel by car is highly boring.
luckily we stopped by Ipoh for the original Oldtown and tau foo fah which is really good!
go go go try them out.
nope we don't have the luck to stay here. just posing hehe, seriously nice place though. the ground floor rooms can just open their screens and leap into the pool ! how cool is zat ???
and many more~
