Penang trip

I had a last minute plan. I called home few days ago and my sister happened to be there with my mum. So I asked her if I could visit her as I would love to visit the 3D Interactive Museum in Penang. She actually had an appointment with her friends but because of me wanting to go, she cancelled her appointment and she's free to take me around.

I was so glad and I suggested that I should meet her up at Queensbay Mall. So I got ready for the trip with my eldest girl. Yesterday, we started our journey after I had topped-up my Touch n Go card at the Maybank ATM. The time showed 7.20am. So off I drove all the way till Juru rest house. My brother called me and told me not to park at Queensbay Mall's parking area. He would take me to Giant instead.

Just after 9am, I had reached Queensbay Mall. I gave my brother a call and he told me to wait. Waited about 20minutes. My sister came over to my car while my brother drove my sister's car. We went to buy some buns near Sunshine before we headed to Giant. I parked my car there which was free for the whole day while my girl and I hopped over to my sister's car.

We headed to Lebuh Armenian. We went mural hunting and photo taking. It was a hot morning. We managed to view most of the murals. 



After much satisfaction, we were on our way smoothly to the 3D  Interactive museum. We paid RM15 for the entrance. My girl became my photographer as she didn't want to take any pictures. I enjoyed myself and it was fun.



It was raining abit so we had western food nearby. My brother had gone back earlier after dropping us. He came back again to pick us. On the way, he took us to the new emporium, The Paragon. We had some food over there.



Later he took us to the floating temple. It was a great experience.




It's time to go back. My brother took us back to Giant. From there, he led us to the Penang second bridge. 



Good bye to Penang and we headed to Taiping. I allowed my girl to drive the car for the very first time on highway from Penang straight to Taiping.

  6. Yes, I also think that your sister is very nice to cancel her appointment for you. Very savvy of your siblings to lead your car to Giant for free parking. If you parked at Queensbay the parking fees will be quite substantial.

  7. I like your impromptu trip. Very carefree and good bonding with your siblings and eldest daughter. Nice photos too. I must find out where this floating temple is and go visit it the next time I am in Penang.

  8. Nice pictures. The murals look wonderful esp those at the museum. Any idea who did those? Is it the same person who did the street murals?

    Short ad hoc trips and family-bonding make for a lovely experience. Thanks for sharing.
