Next day morning, we had breakfast at the zimsum restaurant. the dim sum not bad and quite a lot local having their meal there. There is also zichar stall, saw quite a lot people order the meehon fish soup. it opens at 6.30 till 2.30pm..
After breakfast, we start our adventure using the cat free bus. We took the cat free bus at komtar and drop by near the trick art museum. We then realized there is quite a number of museum in penang, but more of smaller size one. Got camera museum, coffee museum, ghost museum, etc.
We purchased two tickets at 3D Trick Art Museum, Ainsley went in free. Ainsley wasn’t quite happy, she cried when the staff trying to get her to smile. I guess is the weather and probably not enough rest. Throughout the trip she sleep more than usual. The museum is two storey shoplot, not very big area, some of the scene is not really looks real. The staff there was quite friendly and will help us take photos. For more details on the museum, do refer Penang 3D Trick Art Museum. It’s better to look for latest updates from their official website, as some of the information might change over time, for example the entrance fee.
After museum, we spend sometime in the cafe nearby. Their coffee is so disappointing but the environment is quite comfortable, we get to rest our feet. Ainsley is busy to crawling and picking up the magazine.. I’m so afraid she might tear the magazine.
After that we walk back to bus stop, took the cat free bus nearby the blue mansion. aiyo, the website info is inaccurate, so we ended at the nearest coffee shop to had our late lunch. the food is so-so, air-conditioned and free WiFi, that’s why we went in. By the way, there’s free WiFi within Georgetown, however but not all the places is accessible and the connectivity
Thereafter we go to the blue mansion, entrance ticket is rm17 per person for adults, details may check on their website. The person-in-charge start her story telling after 3pm.. considerably a lot people in a weekday afternoon I guess.. So she share about the story of Chong Fat Tze.. how he become rich and how it become a private properties now. Some part of the house has been converted to boutique hotel, so u can stay inside the house as well. again, information can found at Blue Mansion website.
Was rather boring session, rainy afternoon, that wasn’t much showcase, as not many things or furniture being left behind, that’s some old clothes from the last owner. Perhaps it would be good for them to prepare some drinks or at least selling drinks there lo. Most of the time we just standing there while listening to the story. This place is very much commercialized, they do have room for stays, restaurant and event halls that are open to public. Second floor got some photos and exhibition of the old stuff used by the family member. Ainsley was sleeping throughout the whole event. haha.. how come she so tired?
We took the bus go around and walk to chendul stall at lebuh peng hwee, the chendul was ok, there was a kopitiam beside the stall, the char kwoay teow is quite expensive, we spent $6.50 for a small plate of duck egg char kwoay teow, if we order the chendul from the stall outside, we got to pay 50 cents per order -_-”’ Don’t quite like the idea. else must order drink from the drink stall within d kopitiam.
Again we took the cat free bus.. we tot it was going to be round trip.. end up it stop at the Pengkalan weld bus interchange. Since it’s near to the Clan Jetty, so we just walk over.
I was expecting it was quite long walk for the clan jetty. But apparently it was rather short.. as much as this place has become a tourist attraction, some of the resident still living their live as usual, some turn the house into hostel, some doing small business. Some apparently do not want any attention.. The place is nice and peaceful.
After the visit. we took the bus back to hotel for a rest before we go out for dinner. Dinner we went to Lebuh Kimberly, ordered the char Koay Teow and prawn noodles and the dessert next door as well. Taste wise I prefer this char koay teow over the afternoon stall.
Thereafter we still walk over to lorong baru to takeaway some food for supper, which is lor bak, chicken wings and popiah. The portion wasn’t big, so just nice for us. The lor bak amaze me, despite the ordinary look, it actually quite tasty.
