We went to Penang just as a stop over before heading to Langkawi. It was also because my bro is staying in Penang and we get some free accommodation. While we where there my bro fed us like kings and I got super fat. This is what we had in 1 day. In the morning at 9.30am we went for Roti Bakar and Soft boil eggs at Bayan Lepas. At 11.30am we went to Butterworth to have some bee hoon, steam fish, steam lala and fried minute chicken and all washed down with some super fresh todi. One and a half hours later we were at my bro's favourite place for durians. We had 4 really good fruits between only 3 people and finally for dinner we had indian food. Now that is what I call a holiday.

While we were at Butterworth, my bro stopped by his colleagues place which over looks the docks that repairs the Penang Ferry.

This is the first time I ever seen this place and would be silly of me now to realised that they need a place to fix the ferry anyway. While we were up at the apartment I managed to get this pictures as well.

Guess us Malaysians can't really follows rules. After having the durians at my bro's favourite durian place at Kulim, we went to Sungai Sedim. It is about 1 and a half hours drive from Penang but it felt much longer going from Kulim. When we go there we found a nice river with rocks all over. A perfect place to take some pictures.

We spent a good 2-3 hours at Sungai Sedim taking pictures and also playing around. Too bad we weren't really prepared for the river. We got all our swim stuff but we forgot to bring a towel. All 3 of us forgot to bring a towel. Super mangkuk.

On the way back to KL, since Amy hasn't taken the Penang Ferry before. I decided we will take the Penang Ferry instead of the bridge. It would be a really nice ending to our road trip.

While we were on the ferry, I caught sight off....

That is the MV Star Pisces, it is one of the ships that is owned by the StarCruise fleet. It travels around Penang on a day trip to international waters. I am proud to see this ship because I was actually on board this ship and we implemented our device into this ship. In fact it was this ship that we used as our test bed for the deployment of our device. Good to see it here in Penang.
