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~~

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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
