A trip out of K.L.

I just got back from Penang, 4 days 3 nights there which was pretty tiring trip(due to the weather). My body was so tensed and not enough rest I guess.

Anyway, this trip the things I did there was the same leisure activity that I do in K.L. every weekend, e.g. go for movie or have coffee at cafe. Watched "The Book of ELI" at 1st night & "From Paris with Love" at 2nd day in Gurney Plaza. "The Book of ELI" was good and I liked it. Taught me to have some faith. I was a little confused by "From Paris with Love" movie's title because I thought it was a love romantic movie but it wasn't. It's funny and action movie with a lot of 'fuck' words, cast  by John Travolta & Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Surprisingly GSC didn't censor the movie but anyway it was worthy paid.

Recently quite popular advertised Hotel from Penang is the Hard Rock Hotel. Went there for RM 25 drink....Haha...of course also took a look around the hotel. Personally I think it is damn expensive from T-shirt/souvenir to food/drink, the room rate is even more expensive than any 5-star hotel in K.L. I can see alot of guitars display in the lobby lounge and Rock Cafe, they even have shining tiles of The Beatles on the wall. Nothing I like about this Hard Rock Hotel except the swimming pool, though. If you're rich and you really don't know where you can spend the money on, please go visit this high-over-rated hotel & it will swallow all your money. (Sorry my English writing is not good.)

Once in a while get out from K.L. I thought it would be different experience. Apart from the 8 hours go & back on the long journey, I can't see any other difference. (well, maybe I didn't go explore all the places in Penang...hehe..)


This is Foh San(富山), Ipoh. They serve variety of DimSum. 2nd floor is self-service only. It was fully packed and if you want to eat, you have to stand next to table and wait...wait...wait. Haha.
Star: 2-star. The DimSum wasn't good enough as compared I had in K.L./P.J.

Name: 金山steamboat
Location: Gurney Drive
Star: 3-star. The chilly source they have is good tho.

Name: Hard Rock Hotel, Penang
Star: 5-star. I gave 5-star because it is a 5-star hotel. Don't go there and spend if you're not a rich fella. Visit only is allowed and anyone can just go in and use their swimming pool.(If the staff there did not know you didn't check in)

The rest of photos are parts of Hard Rock Hotel. Enjoy yourself fellas.
