My CNY Trips

This Chinese New Year holiday to me is another busy trip, the 2 weeks off is still not enough time for me to meet up all my friends. Anyway, it wasn't a good holiday to me as the first day I touched down to Malaysia I had food poisoning, my food hunting was gone for the first few days.

As usual the first day of CNY is my family gathering day, this few years was not as happening as old days, not all relatives were come on the first day.

On the 3rd day of CNY, my boss & project manager came down to Penang for holiday, so I brought them to tour the places they haven't been so far.

Sam Po Gong

At first I brought them to Sam Po Gong at Batu Maung to see the legendary Cheng Ho's big foot print.

After that we went to Penang New World Park for famous Penang foods. I didn't take any food pics as so many bloggers posted it before so many times. After that we went up to Kek Lok Si temple, it was so conjusted and by the time we reached, all also tired. We just have a short walk there and I didn't manage to snap more photos.

On the 5th day of CNY, I went down to Kuala Lumpur. This time I was planning to meet as much friends as I can, but I failed again... So many were outstation or busy with own families.

The 6th day of CNY, so coincident my favorite guitarist 'Fasy' was playing at my regular pub 'Backyard Pub' in Sri Hartamas. Since I never met him more than 2 years after he became international super star guitarist, so I don't want to miss this chance!

Fasy & Great local musicians

As usual, he is still friendly as he was, when he met me he was so surprised then greet me. We had a short chit chat and I hope he will play in Dubai or Abu Dhabi soon.

My KL trip was so rush, luckily manage to meet up my old blogger gang, Wingz, Han, Golfnick & Penny. This time the meeting was too short, I still have other meeting with my boss & manager on the same day. I hope my next trip to meet up them will be much longer, I really missed the laughter session that we used to have.

Yesterday I came back to my hometown Butterworth, and suddenly the environment here is much more quiet compare to first few days of CNY. I think most of them were back to work, so everything is back to normal here.

Today I went to Penang island to meet up another blogger, Erina Law. Finally I got chance to whack my favorite Penang Asam Laksa opposite of Peng Hwa Girl School, it's been more than 3 years I don't have the chance to eat it. Then I rush to meet up some old friends.

Penang Ferry

It's been long long time I never travel to Penang island by ferry, really miss the moment during my lower six school time & working time in Penang many years ago.

I always love this scene

Heritage buildings nearby KOMTAR

I'm trying to organise a meeting with my old schoolmates tomorrow before I fly back to Dubai on Friday. Time really flies, it's almost 2 weeks I've been in Malaysia, but I felt like I done nothing much, I really wish can drag the time to stay longer here.

Anyway, I'm ready to resume my work in Dubai or Abu Dhabi, maybe my next trip back will be permanent station in Malaysia if no more new project in Middle East. Let's wait and see what will happen next, nobody can predict it yet.

It was great to meet up with you. I have not been going to the stall for laksa quiet long liau. It's near my working place but very lazy to go. Thanks again for the camel. Actually, the person who like it most is my son. When he came back from school and saw that camel in my bag, he straight away smile and told daddy there is a camel in my bag. Then, me and hubby told him that it's a gift from friend. He replied, no it's mine camel. He loves animals alot. Now the camel become his belonging liau. Yesterday nite, sudah hide the camel away because the sister want to play with it.

2 weeks is definitely too short, too fast. I miss home and family. I had some mild food poisoning too, but I didn't care, still continue eat a lot.
