The Ninth Families Trip - Penang

Mom and dad have mentioned about not stepping foot on Penang for ages; therefore, the island was picked as our ninth families trip location for this year. As usual, we were travel in a big group - total 16 of us.

Unlike my last visit to Penang, we chose to stay at a beach-front hotel in Batu Ferringhi this time. We wish to let kids enjoy the seaside but alas, to our dismal the beach was less than satisfaction; fortunately there is still a nice play pool at hotel for kids to spend some splashing fun time.

Well, there was also a little mishap happened to Sarah that worth mentioning. While we were all happily playing in the pool, suddenly I heard cries from Sarah…it turned out the bottom of her right feet has pricked by a stone near the pool side. The cut was small but deep, and luckily the hotel staff was able to stop the bleed with some first aid kit. The wound is still visible until these days.

For places of interest, we’ve covered the usual hot spots that we think mom and dad will like. We went to Kek Lok Si Temple, Penang Hill and the clan jetty; Sarah did not join us for the jetty walk but she did enjoyed the buggy ride at the Penang Hill.

On the last day of the trip before heading home, we detour to Georgetown for some souvenirs. While the men are in charge to hunt for it at the streets, the ladies and kids were enjoying the cool air in a nearby mall.

Goodbye Penang, until we meet again!
