Holiday in Penang-Day 1

Posted by Dawn at Wednesday, March 16, 2011
During the March Holidays, we decided to go on a short trip to Penang as I told CT that I needed a much deserved break and we also had some points in our Krisflyer card that was expiring.



It was Danielle's first time taking the aeroplane. Was thinking how she would react in the plane. I guess my fears were unfounded. Both Caleb and Danielle slept throughout the whole trip! (even skipping their meals on board)





Both CT and I had peace in the plane flight which was good. The flight time was only about an hour plus. So we arrived sooner than we thought..

Taking a cab at the airport was a hassle. I am still wondering- there must be a better way to get to our hotel. But nevertheless, we did the touristy way and paid $70 ringgit for the cab fare to our hotel-Holiday Inn.

Upon reaching the hotel, the kids went straight to the Kids Club Room.


After checking in, we brought the kids to the beach, then for a swim at the pool.



I dont know why but for some strange reason, I didnt take any pictures of the swimming pool.

After taking a nice warm bubble bath, we went for dinner at the nearby food court, Long Beach.




It was only about 5 mins walk from our hotel.

We ordered lots of food..

1) Fried Mee Sua for the Kids.


2) Beef and Chicken Satay which the kids loved very much!


3)Fried Oyster Omelette


4) Penang Char Kway Teow


Also had a huge steamed pork bun with hard boiled egg.

The kids did some drawing while waiting for us to finish our dinner.


After dinner, we walked down the streets through the night market


Saw a horse crossing the road as well. It must have been from the beach as they offer horse riding there.


Anyway, we dropped by a small mini mart to buy some tidbits before heading back to our hotel. All along the whole stretch of road, were small shops selling handbags, wallets, t-shirts, toys etc etc. Very similar to our pasar malam (night market) in Singapore, minus the food stalls which we have in Singapore.

When reaching back to our hotel, the kids wanted to go into the Kids Club Room. So they spent some time there playing and reading.


Cant wait for our sightseeing tomorrow!
