3,751 views

10.51 am – Started packing.

Replaced my wallet with the relevant stuff.

11.00 am – All packed up and ready to go.

07.35 pm – Printed out Stephen Hawking’s Grand Design for reading in the plane. Turns out, I only had time to read 1 chapter for the entire 5 days and four nights. =(

09.54 am – Arrived and this guy was the earliest. Usually, Anthony is slow as fuck but today he was no.1 to arrive in Penang International Airport.

Thanks for the ride, John!

1 minute later, Shawn arrived with his polished shoes. This guy only gets his loafers shined for trips like this.

Another 5 minutes later, Andy arrived in his pyjamas. How convenient!

Another 5 minutes later, Elton John arrived.

10.07 pm – Collected their identification cards and proceeded to check us in.

Boarding pass, check.

10.25 pm – Hung around

McDonald’s.

10.54 pm – Proceeded to wait by the boarding gate. One thing I noticed is that last flights from Penang to KL are usually delayed.

11.12 pm – Boarding time!

11.24 pm – Listened to instructions.

Chinaman goatee!

12.16 pm – Touchdown!

12.30 pm – As soon as we landed, we went straight to the Tune Hotels feeder bus and

boarded it.

Sleepyheads.

Paid RM1 for the journey from the airport to Tune Hotels LCCT.

The journey took 5 minutes.

The bus stopped and dropped us at the back door.

12.46 pm – First thing I did was pay for 12 hours worth of air conditioning @ RM13.49 and towel with toiletries @ RM5.

Suddenly, John started to feng tau.

12.56 pm – After we were done with all the room stuff, we met up with our 2 KL brothers and shared drinks

by the open space in front of the hotel.

Decanter’s price of drinks were reasonable.

2 jugs of Tiger beer for RM60 is really reasonable.

So is a full pint of Guinness Draught for RM19++.

01.05 am – Went to fill up my stomach with a sandwich from 7 Eleven

and a bottle of drinking water.

03.00 am – zzzzzZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

The Thursday I Tried Lebuh Carnarvon’s Noodle Soup

862 views

08.30 pm – Woke up to a glass of soy bean milk and

tuna sandwich.

11.00 am – Dad brought Mom and I for breakfast at Carnavon Street market’s noodle soup / curry mee stall

located somewhere at the outer middle part

of the market.

My bowl of noodle soup.

12.30 pm – Wasn’t feeling really well. Spent the whole day sleeping.

07.00 pm – Hopped on over to Tanjung Bungah’s Sri Ananda Bahwan for a change of environment.

It’s a branch off the main one in town, located exactly opposite Sandy Bay Paradise Hotel.

The environment of this branch looks more pleasing to the eye compared to the one in town. You get to sit in mini personal huts and

see managers scooping out dirt from the fountain bed.

Surprisingly, the price of the items here is the same as the main one in town.

A good example is the common banana leaf vegetarian meal.

Ordered a mango lassi,

a fragrant rice phonggol and

a piece of garlic naan which by the way goes very well with all the three dips provided.

09.00 pm – zzzzzZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzz

09.30 am – Had oats with milk and

2 soft boiled eggs for breakfast.

12.00 pm – Went over to the great Peng Yang Chicken Rice for lunch.

Shared a big plate of white chopped chicken, roasted chicken and

a big bowl of kiam chai boay with

this fella.

01.30 pm – Was shocked when I went over to Komtar. The toilet looked different!

Check out the sink!

Check out the men’s urinal!

It looked so much cleaner and brighter. I wonder if the change was caused by Penang’s new Pakatan Rakyat government under Lim Guan Eng.

After that, we went to Exotic Tattoo to

listen to Max on what he can do to save John’s retarded looking + crooked left leg tattoo.

02.00 pm – Lucky for John, Max’s clients were unavailable to come for their appointments, so Max was free to touch up John’s totem pole.

Step 1 : Shave off the surrounding hair.

Step 2 : Apply vaseline.

Step 3 : Take a deep breath and

Step 4 : GO!

“I think I am at my limit”

“Seriously. Painful man!”

“Kill me instead. Please.”

04.00 pm – You see. One of the major reasons why I recommend Komtar’s Exotic Tattoo to everyone is because of hygiene.

They wrap their tattoo markers.

They wrap the ink bottle.

They wrap the antiseptic spray.

They wrap even the lamp.

Each wrapper is changed after every customer. See. So hygiene.

They even wrap their sandwiches.

Just kidding. The sandwiches were bought from a Sunflower Bakery, right where all the jewelry shops in Komtar are situated.

06.00 pm – Changed the grip of the old badminton racquet.

Concord badminton grip.

Ta da~

07.00 pm -Badminton @ Grand View Apartments.

09.30 pm – Tapau-ed from Makbul Nasi Kandar.
