This is Ainsley’s 2nd flight but first time to Penang, my previous trip was more than 10 years ago. We took the morning flight to go and come back on the night flight.
We should book for earlier flight so that she can sleep through the flight, the best is sleep through the flight. We could also rest if she sleep.
We took the cab from airport to Hotel Jen, previously known as Traders hotel, its next door to prangin mall, 1 avenue and komtar, strategy location to go. We spend 3 nights there. The room was rather old fashioned, carpeted and with all the wooden furniture, the TV is the old crt monitor style. We did change our room for last night since we couldn’t connect to internet the night before. The new room is better than d existing room, higher room, newer TV. they even have the weighting scale in bathroom which d previous room we stayed do not have there. Rather spacious room, comfortable bed. apart from the unstable WiFi, the rest is so far so good.
The Prangin mall is rather old and not much interesting shop inside.. we had late lunch at Sushi King. En, keep trying to stand. we end up letting her to play with d plate. Haha, teaching how to stack the plate together. She so smart, can do it again after we teach her. I manage to bought one pair of shoe in Parkson. There is also one Teochew chendol shop in the Prangin mall, but it’s not nice at all. Not recommending anyone to try that. Better go to the one at Lebuh Peng Hwee. It’s much nicer.
The hotel is so near that we often go back to rest and go out again. Around 5 plus, we went over to lorong baru hawker center, but none of the shop open, so we thought we must have been very early. We later found out that d shop doesn’t open on Wed. sigh.. wasted trip. The other shop we interested also couldn’t find, I should have checking the opening hours. some of the stall only do morning or night business. Lesson learnt, we google the places we wanted to go at night for next day visit. Don’t wanna waste effort n energy to go there and return empty handed.
We end up having dinner at the kopitiam near lorong baru, food not nice. Then happen to ask the auntie working there, she told us that lorong baru hawker center does not open on wed.
