To commamorate their 30th Anniversary, my parents decided to bring us kids for a holiday. As the decision was made 2 weeks before the event, my sister in Malang, Indonesia could not join us. She needs at least 3 weeks notice for her to apply to the Indonesian Immigration Department.
We began our journey on Friday morning. Our first stop for breakfast was Yik Mun, Tanjung Malim. We had some of its famous pau and roti kahwin. Roti kahwin was marvelous! It melts in your mouth.. ooohhh... yummy... My brother tried the king prawn mee.. The sauce and prawn was perfect but maybe it was not hot enough so the Yee Mee was a bit hard..
We were supposed to have our lunch at Line Clear in Penang but we decided to go up north to Sungai Dua first to try the famous Mee Udang..
To feel like a tourist, we have to act like a tourist. So, we decided to take the ferry to Penang. My sister in law, Salina, Adam and me are all Penang Ferry virgin :) So we were so excited about the ferry ride. I did not expect the ferry to be so fast. I started to change Adam's diaper when we had just parked the car in the ferry. By the time I was done, we were already half way accross the sea. So we quickly ran to the rest of the gang and joined them enjoying the cool sea breeze.. It was quite a nice experience.. I enjoyed the scenery as well..
Once we reached Penang island, we headed straight to our villa at Ferringhi Villa. I was really glad to see the villa was actually quite nice and comfortable. It was a two and a half storey bungalow that could accomodate 14 people. There were 3 queen beds in 3 rooms, 1 room in the attic with 2 single beds, 1 queen size mattress and 2 queen size sofa beds. They provided Astro with basic channels only so you can bring your own Astro card to watch your favourite channels. The bungalow is in a guarded compound where only registered cars could enter. They also have a common swimming pool with kiddie pool as well. It was situated towards the end of Ferringhi and very near to Hard Rock.
After some rest and freshen up, we went to the beach which is in walking distance though you have to cross the main road. We opted to drive to the beach and found the beach quite nice. As it was quite far from other hotels, the beach was quite empty. There was a cafe where you can enjoy your tea while watching the sunset. You can also ride a horse, parasail and other beach activities like banana boat and jet ski. Hubby tried parasailing while Adam and me had a horse ride by the beach. The rest of the family just relax at the nearby cafe while enjoying the sunset..
