entering adulthood ep. 5

last 2 week, me & my wife went to Penang to attend one of my coursemate, Nurul Iman's wedding...the wedding was on sunday but we went to Penang the day before to do some sight seeing and look up some dvds at Batu Ferringhi...it was a 2 week school holiday so expecting a little bit of a heavy traffic...but luckily the traffic wasn't that bad...pushed off at about 9 am...the journey from our home and exactly to the hotel where we stayed was about 5 hours plus...instead of taking the ferry to the island, we used the bridge instead as i was a bit lazy to go to the ferry terminal and to wait for the ferry...

the hotel that we stayed at Penang island was Naza Talyya Hotel at Tanjung Bungah, Penang...we booked the hotel thru booking.com...total nett rate was RM121 including tax...but there was no breakfast included...didn't really need the breakfast as the next day we are attending the wedding...so can eat all we can at the wedding reception :P ....the hotel wasn't really bad at all for that price...the room was quite spacious and our room had the seaview....just perfect!....after checking into our room, we relaxed for a while and then went out to have lunch as we were already really starved...we went to Gurney Mall as it was the nearest that has a wide variety of food choice....had lunch at The Chicken Rice shop and after that walked around Gurney Mall...even though previously i was at Penang Matriculation College, that was the 1st time i set foot inside Gurney Mall....hehehe...








after about almost 2 hours at Gurney Mall, we then decided to head straight to Batu Ferringhi instead of going back first to the hotel...journey there took about 20 to 30 minutes...it was raining so couldn't drive fast...reached there and it was still raining...so we made a quick shopping of DVDs and my wife's brouch and straight went back to the hotel....reached the hotel, took our bath, watched tv and call it off for the day...

the next day morning, got up a little bit late...checked out from the hotel at 12 pm at straight headed to Bukit Mertajam....seriously, i did not know the way to go there and was not confident with the map given....luckily i have my thrustworthy & reliable Garmin Asus Nuvifone...the journey was a breeze...in around 1 hour, we were there at the wedding reception and we joined the rest of our friends there...

after 2 hours spent on photograph session, eating and chit chatting, we then left Penang to head back to KL...









congratz iman on your wedding~...
