PENANG Runaround 1

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!

We are headed up Penang Hill!

We were supposed to walk up at six in the morning, but we rose half an hour later. After getting ready we headed out of the hotel room and headed to the Penang Road bus stop.

We caught a free Rapid Penang CAT bus at half past seven in the morning that took us to Komtar Bus Terminal. Here we had a quite simple breakfast of Nasi Lemak and Fried Beehoon with drinks for only RM4.70 (approximately USD/EUR1). 

At eight in the morning we boarded the Rapid Penang 204 bus, and we thoroughly enjoyed an hour's drive along the streets of Georgetown for a fare of RM2.00 each (approximately USD/EUR0.50). We eventually arriving at the Penang Hill Lower Station and for a fee of RM12 each (approximately USD/EUR3) we got to experience a fun ride aboard a funicular up to Penang Hill.

Here we wandered about for a bit before we decided to take a buggy ride and explore the place. For RM30 a buggy (approximately USD/EUR7) we got to enjoy the sights and were kept entertained by an excellent driver cum guide. An experience not to be missed, and highly recommended to all.

After the buggy ride we headed back to the funicular and down the hill. We then hailed a Grabcar for RM5 (approximately USD/EUR1)to Pekan Ayer Itam with the intent of trying the Bisu *Laksa at the food court there. 

*a spicy thick rice noodle dish consists with toppings of chicken, prawn or fish and prepared with a a sweet and sour fish-based soup

Another experience not to be missed, we then walked over to the bus stop nearby and caught a Rapid Penang 201 bus for a fare of RM2.70 each (approximately USD/EUR0.60). We spent another fun filled hour or so sightseeing as the bus took us from Air Itam through Rifle Range Flats and eventually back to KOMTAR.

At KOMTAR we stopped by a Maybank to replenish our 'Federal Reserves' and then walked back to the hotel. Since the laksa we head earlier had already been well digested we decided to have a late lunch at 126 Hui Ong Cafe which was right beside the hotel. 

I quite enjoyed my Pork Omelette with Rice for RM7 (approximately USD/EUR2) while Cat enjoyed her Pad Kra Pao for RM8.50 
(approximately USD/EUR2).

We then walked over to Maliia Bakery to get some excellent and fluffy buns and headed back to the hotel. We will be on another walkabout this evening, so stay tuned!

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