Scenes Along Armenian Street And Burmah Road, Penang

After we checked out, we drove around town for a short while before we headed back to Ipoh.... It was a Sunday Star Walk in Penang on that particular day and certain areas were very jammed up. 

If not mistaken, this is around Little India area...
This area has lots of tourists and it is due to to the murals around here...
Slight drizzle so we didn't get down to take pictures...
Just managed to take one or two actually.....
Those with long queues, we skipped taking the pictures....
Most of the mural paintings are around here along Armenian Street
Just look at the cars and the people....
The cars got to look out for the pedestrians instead...
Outside Ming Xiang Tai Pastry...
One of the branches along Jalan Burmah... if not mistaken.. :)
This mural must be recent... still so clear and nice....

  2. Actually Star Walk or not, every weekend also more or less the same with the crowds. Weekends are no car day on Armenian Street so many people come out to lepak.

  9. Queue? No way. They should close the roads, at least during peak hours - since it is such a tourist attraction. I would just avoid those roads on my own accord. Honestly, I can;t understand why people would insist on driving through knowing it is going to be jam-packed. So crowded. Old man, cannot liao - plus the heat, my head will start spinning. So kotak one, me! :(

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
