Hi all! Thanks for actually coming back, I really appreciate it ♡ After our visitation to the temples, we went to Chew Jetty. As usual, I wasn’t being tourist enough and forgot to take a picture of the entrance and signboard but I did take and picture of the painting of the temple that was outside of the jetty.
The floorings at Chew Jetty were all wooden boards, it was practically a water village (which it probably is). It’s really crowded there during the weekends, we learned it the hard way. And they have motorcycles around delivering goods (sounds dangerous but it’s actually pretty chill). Here are some things that I saw at the Jetty.
When you get to the end of the jetty, you’ll be greeted by fishing boats and get a wide view of the sea.
After leaving the jetty, we had a tour around Georgetown to look at some of the street art.
After our tour, we had Char Koay Teow and I forgot to take a picture again (sigh). But at least on our way back we passed the Penang navy base and had a eyeful of a breathtaking sea view.
We also passed a baba-nyonya hotel that was really really nice. Mr. Van driver said that it’s super exclusive because the owner bought the entire row of shop lots and it only has like 7 rooms or so. The service is good too, I heard.
We went swimming after we got back to the hotel but that’s not important because it’s time to talk about the hotel and dinner. Okay, so I stayed at Hard Rock Hotel, Penang. The service was pretty great minus the part where you have to drive on winding roads to get to Batu Feringgi (again, I have motion sickness).
For dinner, we ate at Hard Rock cafe (which naturally, is at HRH). The chandelier at the cafe was super cool so I made a slideshow with my voice over >>
Now, the food. We ordered a set meal for 5. There was a choice between chicken or beef and we chose chicken!
, buffalo wings and drumsticks and chicken burgers. The set came with desserts.
The hotel provided free shutters after dusk that’d take the hotel guests around Batu Feringgi. Did I mention that there was a Starbucks in Batu Feringgi which had a merchandise shop and it was by the beach. So basically it was coffee and chill BY THE BEACH. This time, I remembered to take a picture.
That night, I met this guy that looked like Lee Chong Wei but he was Singaporean. I wanted to befriend him because how cool is it having a friend that looks like a national athlete? But I didn’t because I’m just awkward like that. His mom was nice though (or his aunt). It was 11pm and nobody cared. If I ever had a chance, no doubt that I’d move to Penang. It’s just a super chill place with great food and nice art everywhere. Simply amazing. That’s it for day 2! Thank you for staying around ♡
