I joined Sam for lunch at an Indian restaurant for lunch, then crashed in my room for a nap in the afternoon before venturing out on my own for dinner. Found a nearby Thai place where I got pad thai and a Diet Coke for 9 ringgit! What a deal.
Had a good final day yesterday in Penang. After the tournament ended (I finished 5th) , I went to the Esplanade and took a brief tour of Fort Cornwallis, before hauling tail back to the hotel to catch the 3:00 guided tour of the Cheong Fatt Tze mansion across the street. Once owned by one of the richest men in China, it's now rented out for special events and as a guest house. I just killed a couple of hours at the hotel lobby until my flight to Kuala Lumpur, which was late, of course. Taxis to and from the airport were more than the flight!
