Road Trip To Penang

Penang, my dad’s hometown and he loves this small island so much. The place, the food, and most importantly, the people there. Almost all of my relative on dad’s side are still living in Penang. The old ones are getting older and the young ones are getting married.

Dear daddy in heaven,
I know you’ll be happy seeing us keeping in touch with Teh’s families. They still talk about you when they reminisce the old times (:

You might want to think twice before inserting money to this telescope machine. One of the telescope machines has actually “eaten” my money but did not function.

I noticed that coconut ice-cream is selling at most of the tourist spots in Penang. At the temples, roadsides and now on top of the hill!

‘Your present position is like a tree receiving no rain and water and badly burned by sun, but it does not die. The next day when the rain comes it regains its strength and becomes fresh as usual. Similarly, you are now in the same condition as the tree. At the present time you can hardly become rich, for your lucky time has not arrived yet.’
