Ten hours

It has been more than a year since I last been to Penang so it is about time to go and visit my brother there and we did just that recently. The three of us - my mother, sister and I decided to do it during weekdays so that my brother and my sister-in-law can still have their rest days on weekends instead of needing to show us around.

All three of us can't remember when the last time was that we took a 5-hour bus trip to anywhere and since we can't remember, we took the bus this time - 5 hours from KL to Penang on day 1 and another 5 hours back on day 3. And we concluded that this is our last long distance bus journey.

Even though the double-decker bus was clean and comfortable but we are too old to withstand the swaying of the bus. This post is to remind us to never take the bus again. Previously we either take a flight or self-drive.

For the 42 hours that we were in Penang, we spent 12 hours sleeping and only 30 hours sightseeing and eating but we are satisfied because our purpose is to visit my brother and sister-in-law.

A big thank you to them for putting us up at their lovely place and buying us dinner. Will it be another 1 year before we visit you two again? Perhaps.

My apple ..

.. is my stainless steel tiffin carrier as shown in the photo below. I find the individual portion of meals served by restaurants to be too much for my one meal so when the food is served, I will keep half of it in my apple to be eaten later at home. By doing this, I prevent any wastage of food whenever I eat out and can't finish my food.
