Main Attraction Of Penang Sights And Travels

From Penang Road, we drove around the town area looking for the main spotlight of the trip... ie. the Wall Paintings....  We heard and read about these wall paintings in the town but never really seen them in real yet... Thanks to our our Penang tour guide, Andy.... in no time, we managed to park our car around the vicinity and walked around.... ooopsss.. must take umbrella, OK!
If you see the crowd, you will know that something Happening must be there, right? 
Yes, another line-up!
Not for cendol this time though....... hahahaa.....
But for the bicycle and two joyful kids....
Something familiar, right? 
ahhhhhhh!!!
Around the area, we came upon some cartoons made from metal and wires...
Anyone read the scripts above?
  
Not sure what these cartoons meant... 
Must go and read properly next time... 
But at least they "brighten" up the town area.... 
A Giganto Cat!!
Step By Step Lane... hmmmm....
Very nice and real though... 
Hope the paint colours won't fade so soon...
For those who prefer not to walk.. you can opt for 
CYCLING!!
Yes, we can go cycling around... especially in the evening when the sun is down...
It is a better option... I think I will do that next time! :)

  3. I hope to be able to go there and see all those nice paintings some day...that is if they have not been vandalised. Have read reports of that happening at least twice, if i remember correctly. So terrible those people, can't appreciate what's good and is for them to enjoy and be proud of!!!

  25. The person who started the mural-concept should be given a well-deserved datukship since it has been a huge plus point in attracting more visitors to Penang.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond
