36 hours in penang (part II)

...continued from previous entry.

Farah and I got ready and went downstairs to wait for Fad and Kak Azie to come over from their hotel. In the mean time, we took some photos in front of our hotel.


The signature Hard Rock guitar.


Farah menggoreng gitar gergasi.

Farah: Ko taknak amik gambar dengan patung Francis Light tu?
Me: *Confused, ada patung Francis Light kat sini?*
Farah: *Pointing to a statue in front of the café*


Me: Woi! Itu bukan Francis Light laa! Itu Michael Jackson!

Fad and Kak Azie arrived soon after and we drove to Padang Kota Lama for dinner. It was drizzling when we reached there so the covered dining area was packed. Fortunately we saw a group of youngsters just finished eating and we quickly took over their table.


Coconut water, coconut shake with ice cream, mee udang, laksa, lai chee kang...


...and of course pasembor! Yummy!

It was still drizzling after we finished our dinner, so we had to cancel our plan to walk by the beach or do any sightseeing around Padang Kota Lama. Instead we drove to Queensbay Mall to spend time indoors.


Chicky and chicas. Peace!


Stopped at Starbucks to refuel. Stayed at Queensbay Mall until they closed for the day.


Then we returned to Batu Feringghi and checked out the night market.


You can get DVDs of any TV series you wish for. Complete set. Any season. RM 4 per piece. One season usually has 5 or 6 pieces, so it’s about RM 20++ a season.


I like! I like! I like! RM 60 a bag. Wanna guess which one I brought home?


Hard Rock Hotel from across the street. I found it funny that the sign said “STOP” not “BERHENTI”. Was I in Penang or Pennsylvania?


Warga TM yang sedia berkhidmat setiap masa di mana jua :-D

Farah wanted to return to the room to do her work. Yes, she did bring her work along. Employee of the year contender, no doubt about that. The rest of us stayed downstairs to take more photos. All the while, the café was banging with loud music and packed with people partying the night away.


Fad having a rocking time!


The striped jacket belonged to Sir Elton John.


It’s been a hard day’s night!

Returned to the room. Needed a good rest. We had something really exciting waiting for us the next morning. One that involved flying without an airplane.

How so?

Will tell you later!
