Penang – family and kampung


Life’s good. I am in Penang’s Gurney Hotel Executive lounge waiting for a friend who promised to belanja if I ever come to Penang… but he never showed up, unfortunately

Luckily I stayed in executive floor… else, I’d be running to Thailand already!

View from 15th floor of Gurney Hotel to Georgetown. It was raining, as if not welcoming my presence 😦

After visiting the orchard, we visited grandpa’s bungalow in Balik Pulau, but grandpa’s already moved to Kulim. So nostalgic

After Balik Pulau, we drove to Kepala Batas to paternal grandfather’s kampung. The rain was unforgiving…
