Difference Between Bus Express Terminal Penang And Ipoh

Three of us boarded a bus express direct to Penang and it stopped at Sungai Nibong. The moment my friend stepped down from the bus, she commented that the terminal in Penang is so different from our Ipoh bus terminal.

Ipoh one is an eye sore compared to this Penang one...(refer to this post)

So neat, tidy and systematic too!
The row of lanes and the platform numbers....

whereas in Ipoh, the buses were everywhere...
practically the passengers have to run to search for them!

Penang Bus Terminal with platform numbers...

I remember one time I missed the bus in the Ipoh terminal...
I couldn't locate it and when I enquired, the girl told me that it had left...
That was a few years ago..
but till today, they never improve the system..
Guess you got to be more "alert" in the Ipoh bus terminal...


  1. Sibu's one also problem but then again I guess we do not have so many buses going to so many places. The waiting lounge here is not air-conditioned so it may be quite hot - what about there? Come to think of it - it may be a blessing as all kinds of people use the buses and the commuters maybe very smelly...

  2. Have you seen Taiping's? Also quite neat I'd say~

  3. The most systematic and modern-looking bus terminal is the newly-renovated Puduraya Bus Terminal. Equipped with air-conditioner, escalators, brightly-lit surrounding and huge signboards, it is perhaps even better than LCCT.

  4. haha, really a big big difference!! hmmm, have you also compared to one in KL?? :p

  5. stp: no choice then only i go bus stations. otherwise.. no go.. hahaa..

    hayley: i heard not nice also? dont know..never been yet..

    pam: i heard about it too.. but never been there yet.. should be brightly lit..last time was so rundown!

    sk: not yet.. heard it is very nice now..

  6. yeha, and i remember you also told us that the ipoh bus terminal is dirty too, with rubbish everywhere!

  7. true, ipoh bus terminal is rather messy..

  8. Puduraya used to be worse. But now I heard it's very comfortable already. Hope the next thing they improve will be Ipoh bus terminal la...minus the water down the roof

  9. haven't seen the one in ipoh yet, and now come to think of it, I havent seen the new Puduraya bus station too!

    As for the Penang bus station, it used to be my usual spot during my uni days as I sit the bus back to Penang every few months or so.

  10. That is too bad, maybe they don't have the money to fix it? Does government give the funds for these things?

  11. Aloha from Waikiki;

  12. Because they are different companies run the show and nobody coordinate it. That's why I don't take any bus express in Ipoh nowadays , and if I have to , I only go for the one with "sendiri punya shop and parking" and you never missed, eg the "YOYO" (Bercham), Sri Maju or Alisan (sorry , not an ad here!!). And if to KL , I prefer to take train (ETS) than bus.

  13. I have not been stepping my foot on any bus terminal for very long already.

  14. I guess what they need is maintenance... perhaps privatize it or it already privatize?

  15. The bus terminal was built by BN gomen,yes but the maintenance back then bad, now PR gomen did a good job in maintaining it nice nice,,,,,,,

    actually Penang has improved tremendously lot since PR,,, too bad Perak, frogs killed it

  16. I think the one in Malacca is the best. ;p

  17. eugene: they are doing their best..

    tekkaus: i have yet to see!

    LV: yes, very!

  18. hahaha. ahem. politicise a bit can ah? hahahahhahahhahahahahha maybe the local gov didn't look at the bus terminal leh. LOL

    btw, ur ipoh terminal post, so conveniently got 2 lines at the bottom about tutoring one hor? hahahahahha pandainyer...

  19. Thanks Claire for the good comments of Penang bus terminal. I could not agree more with you. :)

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
