Mini getaway to Penang, Malaysia ( Part II )


 Hans and I went to the Island Hospital for his Medical Checkup. This is our first time and we were a bit confused, The hospital's so crowded even at 7 am in the morning. We tried to blend in as if we knew what to do, but then a lady approached us and ask whether we've been here before or this's the first time. Then she gave us the queue number. Their staffs are really friendly and helpful.

 It took almost 4 hours to do the medical checkup, we were so starving and tired. I was waiting for Hans and scared by my own. Why does it took a long time... almost 4 hours.. does this happen all the time? 
 We have our brunch around 11 am at the hospital canteen. The food tasted fine because we're hungry! We're sure an eating machine, we ate literally everything when we're starved! Rawr!! After that, we went back to the hotel and took a long long nap. 

 After we woke up, We went to the Penang Road Famous Teochew Chendul to freshen up. IT'S SO CROWDED. IT'S A LONG QUEUE. Luckily the acek's hand is so pro! he served very quick! Everyone's eating while standing at the side of the road. The Chendul tasted sooooo good. Perhaps the best chendul I ever had. because I dislike chendul but this one is so goooood. Worth a try and will come back for this acek!

 After that we went to the Char Kway Teow on the Siam Road, AGAIN. LONG QUEUE! TOO LONG! half an hour standing, half an hour sitting before I finally got to taste the best char kway teow I ever ever ever ate!! SO Delicious! perfect! I wish to order it again but then I have to start a long way queue again? sure it'll be worth it but maybe not this time! But I'll sure come back for this delicious kway teow! You guys should try this one! definitely worth it! Or am I the last to know this famous place? 

 After that we headed to ( south? north? east? west? ) I can't read maps,gps,etc. I had no idea. :(

so I just rest on my most comfort zone.
 It was 1,2 hours journey to the Teluk Kumbar Good Friend Seafood. This place is fine, it is located at the beach side, with a simple decoration. Sea breeze baby! is it a sea? or just a lake? idk. lol. The water is not so clean, and there're just a few mini boats parked. 

  The foods here are truly delicious! Everything was well cooked especially the chicken, the satay and the shrimps! the vegetables are nicely crunchy, the fish is really yummy! The bones are edible they said, It's flavored too! delicious! and just like that, I started to love Penang! 

    Then we continued our journey, We went to the Bukit Bendera Penang hill, We chose to go up the hill by train, It costs around 30 RM each person for foreigns. It's quite interesting inside the train, we really go high! up and up! yihaaa! 

 When we arrived up there, we can almost see all of the Penang city, It was around 7-8 pm! remember I told the day before that we decided to visit this place earlier? It's just really an excuse because we can't wait to visit straits quay! 
 Luckily we didn't make it earlier! Because, I think the view is better at night! beautiful! because I love peace! I found it so peace and romantic.

 This place will be so different in the morning and afternoon, more food stalls, activities to do, and etc! So, maybe if you're willing, you can chose to spend the whole day and night here? But me personally, I didn't regret to visit this place at night. I still get to see the scenic views with Hans. 

 We strolled around, there're bars, restaurants, and a museum. didn't take any pictures, We're again too enjoying the moment! There is also a love lock bridge, no intention to buy any love lock even though it's closed. lol. but we were reminded to take a picture on the love statue by our friends. so yeah here we're !

    After that, We were supposed to went directly back to our hotel. But then our friends decided to chill out. Wait, what? It's not an option, they drove. So, We're in!

  I was given the chance to chose the place, so I was the one that randomly picked the place. I was expecting a more comfortable place, not too loud. so, I chose a place named The Bank LiveHouse Pub, and apparently We came into the perfect place for me which's a big turn off to our friends because almost all of the people there are the middle age people. We decided not to drink too much because we still need to get up early the next day. 

 This place is really cute, The DJ mixed all the old songs that I didn't even know what the songs name. The only song I knew was '' The moon represents my heart - Teresa Teng '' OMG! We can't stop laughing on every songs played. Until, the local band started to perform. They're being so nice to me! Maybe it's because I'm the youngest there? odd. One of the vocalist pointed at me and called me a beautiful lady from the stage! Everyone looked up to me and cheers! I felt really shy, we also requested a song and leave the pub around 11 pm.

 After we left, just before we headed back to the hotel. Our stomach growled, so we decided to have a quick supper. Believe me, I never regret supper! It's such a pleasure for me. Because everything is just so so so delicious! I've fell in love with the kway teow in Penang!
