PENANG Runaround 2

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 going to Tanjung Bungah!

Today we made plans to meet up with my cousin and visit her mother at a nursing home. The last of my father's 3 sisters, we made visiting my Aunt our main priority when we first planned our trip to Penang.

The morning began with breakfast across the road at Roti Canai Transfer Road. I had the Roti Canai Ayam for RM9.50 while Cat just wanted plain Roti Canai for RM2.50. In any case both our Roti Canai were swimming in a pool of gravy which Cat frankly was not a fan of. Together with a round of Teh Tarik our breakfast came to RM15 (approximately USD/EUR3), not a bad start to our morning.

We then made our way to Penang Road, walked across and turned into Jalan Chowrasta. Street vendors flanked both sides of the road making our morning walk very vibrant and lively indeed. We then came across a fruit stall where we purchased Mandarin oranges and peaches for our visit with my Aunty later.

We then headed back to the hotel since my tummy was rumbling very hard. Five relieving minutes later we headed out of the hotel and waited for the Rapid Penang bus 104. After waiting for about twenty minutes the bus arrived, and for the next hour or so we enjoyed our sightseeing session. 

The Rapid Penang bus 104 took us in a generally northern direction cutting across Tanjung Tokong before arriving at Tanjung Bungah. The fare was RM2.70 each (approximately USD/EUR0.60).

We then hailed a Grabcar to the nursing home for a fare of RM7 (approximately USD/EUR2). We spent a good half an hour visiting with my Aunty accompanied by our cousin and ended the visit with prayers and good wishes all around.

My cousin then drove us to Batu Feringghi and bade farewell before making our way to our next destination, SAF Street Pasta. Alas, the stall that our favourite YouTuber Ken Abroad spoke so highly of was not open. Turned out it operates only in the evenings, so we resolved to come again in a future trip.

We then walked across Jalan Batu Ferringhi headed to the Hotel Golden Sands bus stop. After waiting for about ten minutes the Rapid Penang bus 101 arrived, and we again enjoyed a sightseeing session in the opposite direction back to town. The fare was RM2.70 each (approximately USD/EUR0.60) and the best part of all the bus dropped us off right in front of the hotel.

We decided to have lunch at Nasi Padang Minang located within Kedai Kopi International Hotel just two blocks from the hotel. We both had a plate of rice with various cuts of chicken and gravy plus other side dishes, together with a round of bottled water each the entire meal came to RM16 (approximately USD/EUR4).

We then headed back to the hotel and will be on yet 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!
