As been told before, we went to Penang Island (also known as the Pearl Island) last weekend for a 4days and 3 nights stay. Alhamdulillah, all went well. All of us including the children were having a good time there :)
We started the journey not-so-early in the morning to Gombak, sending our helper to my mom's house.
Faaz excited that he got to sit with me for a while
since the car was fully occupied at the back...
We then continued the journey to the North via the North-South Highway. Since the main reason we went to Penang was to attend a family wedding, we had to meet the other family members at R&R Tapah. There were supposed to be 3 cars convoying together...hehe, we were the last to arrive! :P
Instead of me sitting at the back with the babies after the helper left, Faaz requested to be seated with his sisters along the journey.. :)
Halfway through the journey, all fell asleep...zzzZZZ :)
Only left both of us...
(we have to admit, it's kinda bored when all of them were sleeping :P)
Alhamdulillah, the weather was all nice throughout the journey, although there were few places that we encountered rain...but it was only for short period.
It's about 1pm when we reached R&R Tapah. Faaz requested KFC for lunch, and I took the opportunity to feed the babies the homemade porridge I made that morning; salmon with sweet potatoes and broccoli. Simpan dalam Thermos food jar tahan 9 hours panas! ;) As for us, we only had light meal to 'alas perut', we wanted to have a proper meal in another 2hours, when we reached Penang..hihi.
Traffic was clear as we entered the Penang bridge. I must admit, it's kinda exciting to see the bridge (a sign that you already entered the island..) as well as seeing any Penang's famous landmark (a sign that you already entered the town!)
happy me that we gonna start our "jalan-jalan cari makan" officially..hehehe
Happy Faiqa that she soon can get out of the carseat..hehehe
We arrived at Penang Island at about 4pm. Since everyone was really hungry we decided to have our late lunch first at town before checking in our hotel at Tanjung Bungah. The first place we went for this trip was the famous Kapitan Restaurant where we had their famous claypot briyani with tandoori chicken. Nyummmeh!! :)
We arrived at the hotel at about 5pm. Usually, we'll stay at Sandy Bay (now known as Rainbow Paradise if I am not mistaken) but the hotel was fully booked. So this time around, we stayed at Copthorne Orchid Hotel, which is less than 1km apart from the latter. :)
Our children having fun while waiting for us to get our room keys :)
Our next activity after loading all our lugages and have a bit of rest? Ape lagi...swimming! Even the twinnies now know to demand for it! ;)
