Penang – family and kampung


lounge

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
