The roadtrip up North - PENANG

Last Thursday, my family went for a roadtrip. First, we went to Penang and then to Perak.

We departed from home at about 10.30 am. We were heading to Penang. Daddy drove us there by car. From Kuala Lumpur,we have to cross Perak to go to Penang. But we also needed to cross the bridge. We needed the bridge because Penang is an island. We were actually crossing the sea and if we want to go to Penang by sea, we need a ferry. There were also big ferries that carries cars.

After 3 hours, we reached Penang! We were heading to Hard Rock Hotel which was located at Batu Ferringhi. Before that, we stopped at a stall that served a speacial dish which was Laksa Penang. I ordered Laksa Penang and Teh Ais. After we finished our food, we went to Hard Rock Hotel.

The hotel was not far from the stall. It tooks us only minutes to reach the hotel. At the hotel, we first checked-in. Before we went to our room, the waitress served the welcome drinks to us. And then, we went to our room in level 3. The room was facing the swimming pool and the beach. The scenery was beautiful. However, the room was smaller than the room we went last time. That room had a small playground and trundle bed for the kids. While this one not. But we were still happy, thankful and grateful. We can't wait for the swimming pooooolllllllll!!!

We went to the swimming pool and swam! We swam and slided down the pool and played with the water. It was very fun! We love swimming at the swimming pool because of the slide. I was happily swimming at the swimming pool with my sisters and my parents. We only stopped swimming during Maghrib.

For dinner, we hunt for Nasi Kandar Beratur. Daddy drove us to a stall which opened at 10.00pm. We were late for dinner! The nasi kandar was yummy! I never ate nasi kandar! It was famous in Penang! While we were eating, mama saw a trishaw. The trishaw was special because it has lights at night. We wanted to ride on it. But unfortunately, we didn't manage because we were sleepy. After we ate Nasi Kandar, we straight away went to the hotel and slept.

The next morning, we took our breakfast and straight away went to the swimming pool. AGAIN! We swam untiiiil noon. We had fun swimming and playing. We stopped swimming at 2.30 pm. We went to level 6 for our tea. They served dessert. After eating, we went to Lone Pine. It only took minutes to reach there.

Lone Pine is a boutique hotel. At first, we didn't really like the hotel. But after sometimes in the hotel, we loved the hotel more than Hard Rock Hotel. The room was big. We were enjoying the hotel. We went to the park near the beach. We took a stroll at the garden, relaxed at the hammock and played! Then, we went to the beach and played with the water and sand. Finally, we went to our room and had a bubbly bubble bath. Cool! Then, we took our dinner in our room and played some more! After that, we went to sleep! Sleep on a cozy bed. Zzzzzzzzz

The next morning, while everyone was sleeping, me and mama took a stroll at the beach. Mama took a picture of me while I was playing with the water and sand. It was sooo fun. I enjoyed spending time with mama! My heart was calm whenever I spent time with ONLY her! This was because when others were around, they sometimes made my mood uncontrollable.

Then, I went to the tent near the swimming pool to relax while playing with the Ipad. Mama went to the room to wake Ariana and Arlia up because they were still sleeping.

Finally, Ariana, mama and Arlia had arrived! We went for our breakfast! I ordered char kwey teow! Yum! Later on, daddy came and joined us! He ate omelet. After breakfast, we all swam. We swam untiiil noon. Then,we changed our clothes in the tent and checked out from the hotel!

Penang vacation was very fun. I really really didn't want to leave Penang. However, we had to because we were going to Perak. I hope Perak going to be exciting as much as Penang.

Byeeeee Penang!!!!!
