Cuti-cuti Malaysia - Penang (Day 2)

Lets continue with my travelling story...

On our 2nd day in Penang, we all woke up early to get ready for the journey of the day which is going to be sooo long. We dressed up into our most comfortable clothes and headed out straight away for breakfast. We just had a short breakfast at a mamak shop just nearby our hotel...

good to go!
After enjoying some toasts and cups of tea, we travel to our first destination, Prangin Mall. Actually, it wasn't our actual destination. We just went there to park our car and decided to walk around the town.

We strolled down Penang Road and stopped at a small hat shop just nearby the bridge. Daddy managed to get his hand on a nice cap (the one golfers usually wear). Next, we passed by some pickles shop and manage to get ourselves a few bags of different types of pickles ranging from 500g to 1 kg each. As we moved on further, we found this famous nasi kandar stall called 'Line Clear'. I wonder why it was named as it is though there always a long line queuing especially during peak hours.

When all of us were done with our lunch, we headed out of the stall and find ourselves a beautifully-decorated trishaw. Andak was so thrilled looking at it and insisted on riding on it. Since there were 6 of us, me and boy decided to walk in order to let the others got the feeling of riding a trishaw. We already been on it a few times, so we didnt mind.
Me and boy have some fun walking down the street at the same time taking some pictures of Penang Road (it was a good thing we didnt get on the trishaw). Be bought some chestnuts to kibble along the way as well as a hat for myself since it was burning hot being exposed under the afternoon heat.

Our next journey brought us to Batu Feringghi. As we arrived in front of Tropical Spice Garden, we were welcomed by the sound of the waves crashing the beach together with the calming breeze. It was one exhilarating moment of the day. After paying the entry tickets, we saunter into the garden excitedly. The view of the garden was stunning! I couldn't help myself from taking a huge amount of pictures! Daddy unofficially became our tour guide since he knew almost each and every type of plants in the garden. Thanks, daddy!

From all these pictures, you can judge yourself how cool is this place!

From Tropical Spice Garden, we drove off to a new Hard Rock Hotel which was located at Batu Feringghi beach. It was the coolest place in town! We had our hi-tea at Hard Rock Cafe (which was fabulous!) and shop a few souviners for ourselves at the Hard Rock Shop. It was my first time there and i will go there again!

We went back to Georgetown before sunset. We had our dinner at Gurney Plaza again since all of us were already exhausted by night time. We ended our day dozing of to wonderland..

To be continue...
