Wrong Time Wrong Place In Penang

I posted about my Penang trip last Friday and getting caught in the jams almost everywhere. If my car did not have automatic gears, I think until today I would be still be "limping" on my left leg due to heavy pressing on the clutch.

Maybe I was at the wrong place at the wrong time. It was almost lunch hour when I went to see my son at the college. It was a prayer time for Muslims during that 12-2pm period as well... and not only that, schools also closed around that time. Gosh, I don't think I wanna stay in Penang... lol...
I snapped this while waiting for the traffic to ease
along Kelawei Road in Penang
ahhhh.... this is different...
cos this is IPOH...
so quiet... so un-alive.... hahaa...
u want peace and quiet, come to IPOH..

  5. KL and Penang jam more or less similar ... Ipoh better I think. Everything is near. A lot of good food

  6. Lunch time around here is always a busy time, and then around 4pm until 6pm when people are getting off work. I try to stay off the highways during those time periods. LOL Thanks for your visits, sorry I haven't been around much, it seems this whole month of April has been busy, busy, busy. Have a great week-end.

  13. Got a colleague in Kuching who goes back home for lunch on weekdays. How nice! Think this is not possible in KL unless your house is nearby and a walking distance from office what about Ipoh? Do you have the time to go back home for lunch presume it's all ready cooked for you? tQ.

  14. Yup! I wouldn;t wanna stay in Penang...or KL, for that matter. So nice...in Sibu, no jam and every place is near. So laid back and relaxed...can live longer like this (or maybe it just seems so)! LOL!!!

  16. bananaz: kl no way of going back for lunch.. as for me, it takes 15 min to reach home so no point too.. lunch hour is a bit jam.. but other than that, it is acceptable..


    stp: hope we can live longer in our quiet towns..:)


    sweetwitch: yes, only when many come to cari makan during the festive seasons, otherwise ok.. even jam, also will be 5 or 10 min later..

  19. Being caught in a traffic jam when you have an appointment is really frustrating.

    The pace in Ipoh just nice for me, a good place to relax and destress.
