Ok, here’s the long-awaited post.
We started off on our long-awaited & much-anticipated trip on a fine Saturday morning. After everyone was fetched, we stopped for breakfast at McDonalds.
Next eating stop, Funny Mountain Tau Fu Fa in Ipoh!
Where: Funny Mountain
49, Jalan Theatre, 30300 Ipoh, Perak.
And they even have a drive through service!
After Funny Mountain, on to Nam Heong White Coffee for, errm, brunch (egg tarts, white coffee & some fruit SY packed along which we curi-curi makan in the coffeeshop).
Where: Nam Heong White Coffee (original Old Town White Coffee)
2 Jalan Bandar Timah, Ipoh, Perak.
Time to hit the road again. Next stop: Penang island!
We checked into Hotel Heritage 1926, our home away from home for the next 2 nights. Not a bad hotel, & strategically located… right across the Him Heang biscuit shop (for you tau sar pia aficionadoes).
President came to get us from our hotel & brought us to have an early dinner at Ocean Green.
Where: Ocean Green Restaurant & Seafood
Paramount Hotel, 48F, Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah, George Town, Penang.
Nice views, yummy food, great company. This is what the Greater Dining Club is all about 😍
After a great dinner, we headed to Gurney Paragon, newest shopping mall in Penang to date. Missed the turn into the carpark & had to make one big round (no thanks to new one way traffic flow system in Penang >_<!!).
Got there eventually.
A very cool coffee place that we passed by but didn’t go in for coffee.
Off to have drinks at 600cc next.
Gurney Paragon, Penang.
And after this, off to Bee Hooi Restaurant in Pulau Tikus for supper!!! Yep, still not quite done eating for the day!
Where: Bee Hooi Restaurant
415 Jalan Burma, George Town, Penang.
President dropped us back at our hotel for some much needed sleep. Don’t know if anyone snored or talked in their sleep (too tired to notice, or care).
We did quite a lot of eating, posing & driving today.
End of Day 1.
