нello everyone! we are caт and нarold. welcoмe тo oυr blog, creaтed ιn нonoυr oғ oυr devoтιon тo тнe everyday ғood ғor тнe everyday perѕon, aѕ well aѕ тo caтalogυe oυr мeмorιeѕ, lιғe'ѕ evenтѕ, and тravelѕ wнere oυr 'perυт' (тυммy) leadѕ тнe way!

Today is the day!

We teased about planning a short trip to an undisclosed destination in our previous video, and we can now divulge that we will be going to Penang.

We woke up at half past five in the morning and after quickly getting ready we hailed a Grab car to KL Sentral to catch an ETS train to Butterworth. The fare was RM82.00 each (approximately USD/EUR18) but since we purchased our tickets directly from the ETS counter there was an RM15 (approximately USD/EUR3) discount, so it eventually cost us RM67.00 each (approximately USD/EUR15).

We arrived shortly after six in the morning and was disappointed not to find a single eatery open. McDonald's opened a quarter to seven, but we were dissuaded by the large crowds that formed.

An hour later we were allowed onto the platform and at precisely 8:03am the train departed. The trip was largely uneventful but for a couple of loud individuals who got on at Ipoh. They managed to continuously hold a rather raucous conversation throughout the entire two hours that it took the train to get from Ipoh to their eventual stop at Bukit Mertajam. One of them had a very shrilly voice that we found very tiresome.

Oh well, when life gives you lemons, we made lemonade. Or rather, we counted the number of times (or at least we tried but eventually lost count of) the shrilly person saying the word "Act-Chili". For those who don't follow he was actually mispronouncing the word "Actually".

Once these raucous individuals disembarked it was just one more stop: We were in Butterworth!

We quite enjoyed the train ride and apart from the minor noise pollution would most definitely recommend the ETS to anyone looking for a relaxing way to get to Butterworth (and Penang). 

Lastly, we feel that it is our civic duty to remind everyone that while masks are now optional outdoors, it is still mandatory indoors!

We do what we can to support local businesses, and it's always good to know that everyone here observes all related SOPs, it helps make us feel safer and reassured.
