Bond in Penang ♥

So Penang trip is another very last minute plan again that my friends suddenly call me want to go Penang or not. At first I thought they were just saying 'cause it's really very very last minute and sudden but well who knows... It's a typical 3 days 2 night trip for food hunting and sightseeing wee :3 Best part of the trip was staying at my friend's condo that we can save lotsa money from booking hotel BUT the worst part was she has NO CAR which means we have to take bus to everywhere ._. 

Well let the journey starts...

SS picture of me and Yoke Ping in front of a very famous Cendol stall :)



One of the best attractions in Penang is the famous wall painting by a Lithunian artist, Ernest Zacharevic! Google him if you don't know :p Some of you must be thinking what is it so nice about the wall painting but let me tell you that it's so famous until we have to queue up to take photos of it! Let's check out the mural below :)

#1 "Childen in a Boat" mural, Chew Jetty


#2 "Little Boy with Pet Dinosaur" mural, Ah Quee Street 


#3 "Boy on a Bike" mural, Ah Quee Street 



#4 "Children Playing Basketball" mural, Chulia Street Ghaut 



#5 "Brother And Sister On A Swing" mural, Chulia Street Ghaut



some other wall painting that we spotted along the street :)

#6 "Reaching Up" mural, Cannon Street (spot the 100 plus up there :p)


#7 "Little Children on a Bicycle" mural, Armenian Street


A lil' direction for you because fyi it's located at different places :) 


Well we only get to visit 7 out of 11 murals because it was raining halfway and we were rushing to go to Penang Hill after that. Blame that some of the painting were located too far away from each other T_T
PS. Hurry up if you wanna visit this place because the colour is fading and I heard that two of it were spoilt :( 

Next stop, Penang Hill!

Getting more pretty when the sky turns darker :) 



panaroma view ♥ 

wore sunglasses 'cause my hair was too messy! teehee :p


the guys who call themself "Big Bang" ._. 

Lastly end with a picture of my fatty acting cool :p

Like what my friend said, short but sweet memories in Penang although we have only visited 3 places. Greatest achievement ever ._. I'll definitely come back to this place again because it's really not enough for me! SEE YA PENANG xx




Lesson learnt #1: DON'T EVER TAKE BUS WHEN YOU GO TRAVELLING! It's super troublesome that you have to keep waiting and it wastes your time. At the end you will be like me visited 3 places only :(

Lesson learnt #2: PLAN WELL BEFORE YOU GO TRAVELLING! Stupid me trust the guys already plan everything nicely ended up playing cards and watch movie in condo at night.

  12. Queue up to take photos of the those murals? Wow! Impressive. I had been to Penang twice but I wanna go again just for all these murals. I agreed that it's kinda wasting time to take bus while travelling. Since you guys went in a big group, it's better to rent a car.

    Anyway, thanks for visiting my humble blog - Travel & Living Journal of DT. Hope to hear more from you soon. =D
