For those of you that I am friends with on Facebook, you have probably seen that I moaned a fair bit and when I was doing the moaning I was moaning about Malaysia, which is not really fair. I went to Wigan for 2 …

Moral turpitude or delightful irreverence?

Having had serious reservations about coming to Georgetown, capital of Penang, all I can say is “wish you were here!”
It’s a fascinating mix of the kooky and the magnificent, which creates the most amazing little city. On its outskirts are the slum type tower blocks and in the middle is a vibrant centre jam packed with …

We decided tonight to move up to a hotel in Georgetown and chill out a bit as Bec was starting to get quite sick. After finding a nice place for a reasonable price on wotif.com we went and checked in, organised our train tickets to Singapore and did a wee bit of shopping before settling in for the night

... of home and combine them with the Malaysian cuisine. We now have new cultures, new recipes and variations on old favourites. I heard from someone that there are over 40 recognised variations on that Indian Classic, Biryani, woo hoo. Sadly we won't be here long enough to try them all :(. After our cultural and glittering tour, we made our way back to the waterfront and found ourselves back in the clan jetty area. We decide to visit another clan jetty just to make sure we ...

... this morning then we headed out on a local bus to Penang Hill. At the bottom of the hill there were loads of Hindu Women who had come to visit so we queued up for a bit before we caught the funicular railway up to the summit (1996m high). At the top, we enjoyed the views of the port and Georgetown as well as the mainland in the distance. We had lunch first (really cheap too!) then went to look at the Hindu temple and Mosque ...

    Nice Hotel, Great Views, Poor Service

    We moved to this hotel from the Hong Ping and what sold it was the amazing view from the room on the 16th floor. The hotel was nice and of a similar standard to a 3 star hotel at home (UK) The service however was bad, staff were very ignorant and in no way wanted to help with anything! Also the rooms have WIFI at a shocking charge of 15RM per 24 hours (about £3) It's free in the lobby, although logs you out about every 5 mins...PAIN!
