Ferrying Across To Butterworth, Penang

It has been years since we have been ferried across from the island to the mainland...  Normally we will use the bridge but this time we went by ferry because the place we wanted to go is near to the jetty at the mainland. 

Going from the island to the mainland is free but coming back to the island, we have to pay a RM7 toll charge but my son got this Touch n Go card where the toll fare is bit cheaper, one way is RM5.40. 

Coming back to my ferry post, time passed very fast cos we kept on taking picture after picture... not so much on the scenery but on "ourselves..... "  In no time, we reached the jetty at the mainland...
Behind us is the Libra... I think....
Same face moe?  
Ever since he started working, he has gone down a lot!
Blue skies looming above..
Yes..... my two bodyguards...
Different length, I know... 
hahahaha...
Spot the difference... 
Real sunny day...
And I forgot to apply sunblock lotion...
ouch... ouchhhh!! 
 
Anyway... after the photo sessions....
The mainland was in sight... 
Time to heal our "hunger" in Butterworth!

  1. RM5.60, not 5.40 LOL! 20% discount off RM7, that's what that Touch n Go does. But they said they going to end that discount in 2016 or 2018, not sure is real or just rumors :(

  6. First time I went on it was in 1973 - did go on it again more recently - 2008 or 2009, I think. When were you on the ferry? There was a fire a few days ago...

  9. oh, coming out of the island is free.. no wonder, muahahahaha!! we were puzzled why there was no counter o gate or toll or what-so-ever when we drove in or out of the ferry when we left..

    and TnG has got 20% discount using the ferry?? how nice.. you know in KL if you use TnG there is no discount and worse still you gotta pay 10% extra if you use it for parking, how ridiculous right?? it's supposed to be cheaper since there is no paper tickets and paying facilities needed for TnG wat~~

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
