It was just after the school holidays and I had annual leaves to clear which I decided to make use of my company's bungalow holiday stay in Penang. So I booked one and also asked Auntie Tay and Brandon's friend Kevin from Ipoh to join along as well.
We had breakfast in Ipoh and shopped awhile before setting off to Penang. We took the ferry to reach Georgetown as the kids wanted to experience the ferry ride which was fun.

Well I should say we were rather disappointed to find the bungalow in such sad state. There were water dripping off the ceiling and I had to take a spanner to switch on the main pipe outside the house. Come on! You got to be kidding ,Im supposed to be on holiday not worry about plumbing issues

So I quickly called up another homestay in Bayan Baru and paid up as soon as we got there but it was a killer jam which took us an hour to reach from Georgetown. I don't envy the life of a Penangite.

The next day we went to the nearby Sunshine market for breakfast and took the back road from Balik Pulau road to reach the Butterfly Farm. The road was narrow and windy.

The ride back from Penang was quick as we stopped over at Low Wong for chicken rice. But the ride back from Ipoh to KL was a long and jam one. We even had an incident at the Tapah rest stop where we accidently blocked a water tanker that the driver was even threatening to bang our car. Oh yeah last weekend I banged the car bumper and the front lip is off so I had to buy another one which I sourced fro Jusco Cheras Selatan,
