Penang 11 June 2010

Sunday am.
EnHui caught a cold (their first one!) on Saturday evening and down with fever. Hui recovered the next morning but En was still having fever. After much hestitation, we went to Penang as planned. En slept in the car mostly till we approached the ferry terminal.

This time around, we crossed over to Penang Island by a ferry. (Car RM7.70) . Toll fare RM41.70 from Sungai Buloh toll. We paid another RM1.30 toll to Butterworth, ferry terminal.

Full of cars and motorcycle at the lower deck of ferry. Upper deck are for passengers only.
Approaching Penang Island. The disembarkation area is near Fort Cornwallis.

Oncoming ferry.

Tunes Hotel @RM67(include taxes) per night, a room with fan only.  This is our third time at this hotel and we could see the room getting older..
Room photos were taken in April, 2009 where we paid RM8 nett per night ! (still new)

 What I love most, is the ever-ready recycle bin near the lift.

We headed to Batu Ferringhi Beach in the evening when En was better Our hang-out beach is located after Hard Rock Hotel.  A right turn after Bayview Resort which is after Hard Rock, and drive into the narrow lane till the end.

En was weak again.. and she couldn't make it to the sand whereas Hui pestered dad to a horse ride that cost RM30 for 15 minutes.

Sunsetting.. :)  taken from the restaurant at the beach. The only restaurant over there, serves average local and western food. En slept again while Hui picked many coat buttons.
