...up north again...Penang n Kulim...Part 1

Wish's landmark...it was about 25k km when we 1st got it in 2006
it has taken us sini n sana since then...hence d 100k milage
...morning @ d jetty of Penang National Park

We ventured north again over d weekend as one of my cousions, Kamarul @ Ayoi, is getting married to a Kulim girl. We travelled in 2 cars...along with Abah's Pajero, with Abah, Mak, Cemi n Kak Cik joining us [n Ina arrived later by bus]. I managed to book 2 3-bedroom apartments in Ferringhi to accommodate us...n got some discount as well even tho it was peak season...regular customers maa. So, for d akad nikah on Saturday evening n d Sunday's kenduri, we just commute to Kulim...a journey of about 80km each way. For d rest of d time, we just lingering around d island...sampling kari here n there...n d Ferringhi Nite Market of course.


Friday...we arrived Ferringhi b4 5pm n later walk around for a dinner place...here we r along d Nite Market


'can I interest u in a lantern or two sir...for u only...special price one'...


Luqman looking thru some dvds...with d seller willing to go on a short notice...if any enforcement officers datang


...d Ferringhi Nite Market...a hive of activity...every nite without fail


Saturday...morning...went out to look for breakfast. Dropped by d jetty of Kg Nelayan @ Teluk Bahang


We've been to this area many a time but only now realised that there is a National Forest here. In fact, it is d 1st national forest to be gazetted in Malaysia. From this gate u can reach a light house after a 45-minute walk...which we didn't do of course...nanti la next time


When looking for food in an unfamiliar territory...just follow with d flow...d local one laa, not d touristy type. We had our breakfast @ d local pasar's foodcourt across d road from d above makcik...d food there is nice...but just keep your eyes off d floor...hihi


Later we went to ronda2 @ d World Heritage areas...stopped by @ d jetty for Pulau Jerejak Resort [d pulau is in d background - this was taken by Farhah - tu sebab siikiitt senget]...


...n visited d Queensbay Mall next


For lunch...we had a round of nasi kandar along d Gurney Drive...specifically @ Khaleel's. Here Abah was looking at our parking ticket...initially Cemi tought it was surat saman


It was low tide then n a flock of flamingos were playing around in d mud. Need to turn this image into an oil-painting effect as d jerubu is quite pronounced in d original foto


Today...went to look for breakfast in Teluk Bahang again...n stopped by this construction site. With d imminent economic difficulties coming [according to d experts laa], probably this HRC Hotel Penang would be postponed kott


With most of d area along d popular shores of Penang already taken up for development...d next target seems to be d hilly areas. This Moonlight Bay development offers units from 'only' RM1.6million with breath-taking views...but if something goes wrong...it will really take your breath away, literally...


...but with d Bukit Antarabangsa incident still fresh in our minds...n promises by various authorities to freeze these types of project...we just need to wait n see what'll happen eventually


in d afternoon we travelled to Kulim after checking out for Ayoi's kenduri...and saw this ad board...answering Mak's frequent question when visiting any restaurants...
