Hi Malaysia!

... Penang island which is where we were heading for. We are staing in the capital of the province which is called Georgetown - we are staying in Little India. I'm writing this after we have been here for 4 days and extended another two as it could really be the best place ever! We arrived around 6pm - the clocks go forward another hour so we are eight in front now - and didn't really have any idea of where to go or where to stay. We were due to meet up with my friend ...

Georgetown pt. 2

... or who possesses particularly good culinary skills, this might seem like an odd choice of places to visit. However, it was really interesting. From being sprayed with especially fragrant mosquito repellant at the entrance to exploring the spice, jungle, oriental and perfume gardens and then drinking citronella tea at the the top of the hill. There was a hammock and a swing in the middle of the nutmeg and clove trees too where the smell was mouthwatering. Apparently ...

Penang-the padlock, the museum and the mall

A travel blog entry by johnnym


... what I've read. Half marathon this way, 10km fun run turn. As if a runner can just sniff these things out. In the afternoon I walked to the mall.

It's more like an indoor market, with lots of little stalls and goods spilling out, than ...

    It was the place that me and my family used to stay at every month. And here I come back! Nothing change in the hotel but the memories of the hotel will always remain in my mind! Closed by to food and attraction. But quite far from beach but it is in the center of shopping!
