A Weekend In Penang


My family and I had just arrived from Penang two days ago. Unlike most of our trips to Penang when we stayed at the Feringghi BayView Beach Hotel on the island, this time we stayed at the Butterworth Palm Inn Hotel which is just across the road to the Dewan Dato’ Haji Ahmad Badawi where we attended a seminar on Sunday.

For my parents, a trip to Penang won’t be completed without having Penang’s special ‘mee udang Sungai Dua’ or ‘Sungai Dua prawn noodle’; so we headed to Sungai Dua for the special dish as soon as we reached Butterworth. In fact, we drove to Sungai Dua again that night where they again had ‘mee udang Sungai Dua’ for dinner at another restaurant! I had ‘keoy teow goreng’ or ‘fried flat noodle’ for both lunch and dinner which I think is much cheaper and tastier. The restaurants are not fancy but both are located in beautiful natural surroundings; we had lunch at a riverside restaurant and dinner at a restaurant facing a large paddy field.The food are very, very good and the price of food is far cheaper than in KL.

On Sunday, we attended the ‘Seminar Mendaulatkan Islam – Agama Negara (SEMAIAN)’ (see here) at Dewan Dato’ Haji Ahmad Badawi across the road from our hotel for the whole day. In the afternoon , I sat down on the floor outside the hall and drew a picture of the hotel which turned out quite nice. My siblings walked around the large field in front of the hall, playing in the wind and watching the pigeons performing airshows and playing ‘guess the plane’. And Ahmad Ali caught a feather that flew down from a flying bird(and decided to start a feather collection) and made such a fuss about it on the car trip back to KL.

We had a lovely time in Penang although we didn’t go to the island and played at the beach. The view from our hotel room is marvelous, especially at night. We snapped lots of photos from our hotel rooms which face the island and the Penang Port.  I hope that one day we could go on another trip to Penang.

    Thank you for the comment. It is a nice surprise indeed. Yes, I am very interested in the offer. Anyway, since I am new to this and I cannot fully understand the terms and what is expected from me, please do elaborate on what should I do, what would I get from this and what is my commitment.

    Looking forward to your reply.
