Local Getaway, Penang

Each year will have a local getaway trip with my beloved. This year slightly early because of Tuan Pheng wedding invitation, so Penang here we go. Is a 5 days 4 nights trip, which is a little bit too many days as we have not much place wish to go.

Start our journey with cheap flight ticket and all public transport and reached Penang Airport
It is quite convenient to take public transport to airport, KLIA 2. We from different places so we gather at Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS) because there is KLIA Transit. If you have debit or credit card, just buy your ticket at the kiosk and skip the queue. This transit is so comfy, and easy for us to go airport, it takes up around 40minutes to reach KLIA 2. So, arrange your time wisely.

Once reached airport, waiting friend to pick up. Make friends around the world, over different places is so good *haha =D* while waiting, and lucky us make a new friend too. Deepavali was 2 days ago and we so lucky to meet a new friend, Ganes who treat us with homemade cookies. Thanks a lot!

Authentic Indian food

Never forget my balanced nutrition no matter where I go

Penang is a food paradise. The first thing in my mind when I know we will be going Penang is FOOOOD!!! ALL ABOUT FOOD. EAT EAT EAT and EAT! Don't waste time and lets start the food hunting journey!

First day, first food for lunch, we went for a healthy food, a lifestyle vegetarian cafe. The menu looks good, they have variety of choices, from chinese to western cuisine also available, even dessert. We ordered just a little bit to try because we have to hunt for other food. 

The environment is cozy, small place but warm. Pay a visit if you are around Chow Thye Road.

Then is time for famous local Char Kuey Teow. Is a local fried noodle, a soft white noodle, little bit like pasta shape but more softer. This is a local food where can be found everywhere, most of the hawker stall. There are few common ingredients such as bean sprout, cockles, prawn, and some stalls will put chinese sausage 'lap cheong' to make it more tastier.

Here I introduce Kafe Heng Huat fried kuey teow. The price is a little bit expensive (Rm7, Rm9, Rm11) but it really delicious, not bad. Can have a try, I prefer kuey teow without spicy.

They put big prawn, that's the price charged.

Well although, is all about food, and of course we have to walk around and take a look at those historical museum or figures. We do walk a lot, we just like a tourist walk with the map.

While we walk then we see Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall, which located at Macalister Road, George Town. There is a huge Three Patriot figure just infront of the house. I dont know much about history but I know Dr. Sun Yat-Sen had made lot changes during old days. 

Of course after a walk, we used energy and is time for a tea break. In such historical place, we have to have tea time at oldies cafe instead of western coffee shop. Just right opposite of Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall, we found a delicious toast bread and half boiled egg. 

Half boiled egg and kaya butter toast is the best matching ever, of course with a hot coffee is just right. If you have not try this, this is a must try. Kaya Butter toast will melt nicely when you out into mouth. If soak with half boiled egg, the bread just soft crust from outside in. 

Old people, old food.
Kiah Hong Restaurant located at Macalister Road, a corner shop lot.
Open daily from morning until 5pm.

Then next destination will be Hard Rock Hotel, Batu Feringgi. It had the famous beaches. The hotel just nice, I really want to stay there. The room when open is not ordinary balcony but is swimming pool! I love it. Promise to myself, the next time I visit Penang, I must stay there, guess March I will be doing so. *to do list, dream list*

Next time!

October is their Pinktober which support breast cancer. PINK. 
Its been a long day. Wake up early early in the morning then start our Penang journey, then eat nonstop, walk and eat then walk again haha! So decided to go back and rest. We stayed Grand Inn Hotel, located at Macalister Road. Nothing much about the hotel, after all we just need a place to rest. Quite clean, so is acceptable. 

After a short rest, time for dinner, eat again! *Penang is all about food, as I mentioned earlier* of course, we are not local, where we go, we refer to the map, we do the same thing to hunt for dinner. You can just grab few maps once landed at the airport. There are few maps, must take all! Some focus on food, some show historical places, hence, grab all then only choose the one that we need.

Since we stay at Macalister Road, and no transport, of course we choose place that is walking distance. Well, when I say walking distance might not be your walking distance. We walked around 15 to 20minutes reach New Lanes. There is a street full with hawker stalls beside Sunway Putra Hotel, George Town. 

There are so many stalls and I am so excited but headache at the same time because I don't know which to choose haha! So we choose all these famous local food based on our instinct which stall that we think it might be delicious. 

Everything taste just nice and it is much more cheaper.
Tried duck egg char kuey teow, fried oyster (Oh Chien), satay, popiah, chee cheong fun. Among all these, my favorite will be popiah and fried oyster. The fried oyster is a local dish where fresh oyster fried with egg. Next will be chee cheong fun, it is special because of the sauce, a shrimp sauce which a new try for me. Then follow with a kuih, a local delight but just normal. Below of it is fried kuey teow with duck egg, taste is bit different, fragrance and texture of the noodle is more juicy.Then special satay which is pork satay. And continue with popiah, a thin layer skin, wrap with vegetable, egg, crunched peanuts and sweet sauce.  

After eat, need to keep fit, so walk around to see night scenery. We walked and walked to the old ancient building. And this is KFC haha! So special and it looks historical. And along our walk, we discover lot beautiful shops lot. 

nice building

Ruite is just funny! He always have wonderful expression when he take photos. Penang have lot wall painting. When we walk in Nagore Square, saw this then Ruite gives us this pose haha!

Hey, pretty lady!
Then is time to walk back. When we almost reached hotel, found out opposite of our hotel have this beautiful and classy place. Totally no idea what is this place, I think is some clubhouse as I saw dining place inside it. 

How I wish this is my mansion

Alright. That's all for first day. So many to go but it's kinda long now, gonna blog more about my Penang trip with few parts, two or three parts perhaps. Overall, my first day is just explore and take a look all places to have a better plan following days. Before I stop, we travel on Thursday until Monday. Worry about our job? Our boss let us to take long holiday? We are our own boss, we work anywhere, anytime. Herbalife gives us the opportunity, work without worrying our job, our income.

Beauty is a choice, not gifted

I was planning to blog about Penang, and when I browsing for photos
I found out these classic photos.

Looking for me?
Wondering which is the mother? Who is the sister? 
Or there is no sister, only a mother and aunt for his convocation?

Well, that was me with my mom for my younger brother convocation
I was 22 by that time.
My mom look gorgeous, as always
My brother look smart and handsome as he do
Meanwhile, ME, trying to look good with limited dress with that giant body size

you may think, 'This is not giant body size, just a little bit plump' (oh yea, I must wear XL size)
you might guess, that is baby fat (I'm 22, already)
you may say, 'Dont worry, you look cute' (I'm not kid anymore, cute doesnt fit me in)

Mom-Brother-Me (22 years old) -BEFORE-
 There is a verb
Only lazy women, no ugly women

well said!
Beauty is a choice, not gifted, not born with

We can choose to become better, become pretty
There is so many solutions:

PLASTIC SURGERY -too expensive? next!

SLIMMING PILLS -side effect? next!

DIET -I am still hungry, I love food. Next!

EXERCISE - 50 reasons to exercise but 2 reasons to not exercise ~ no time ~lazy

mentioned above are ways that I used to play in my mind always
I tried few ways but it doesnt work effectively. 
and there is always a reason for me to not continue what I been doing.

Lucky to meet a person who beautify me *happy*
I had lost 10kg in total where by reduce my size from XL to M

honestly, lose weight is not easy for a person who love to eat like me!
but with the coaching and motivation, and it seems to be easy
I managed to do it. 
Give myself a time frame, a target
'Lose weight to eat more in future' had been my philosophy now

Thats me early of this year by the age of 25.
I feel wonderful, feel great about everything I wear now
can you see the differences? My arm especially!!!!

This is me after 2years. I am glad I know my coach. Glad I made a wise decision 2years ago.

 It is all because of a changing of Healthy Active Lifestyle
a balanced nutrition is so important for weight management

Are you eating right as it stated? Even if you do, can you make sure your meal is really balanced and complete?

All of these I learn from my coach

and besides from my coach, I learn from nutritionist, I pay to learn

Like I mentioned earlier, lose weight is really not easy, is HARD
therefore, after lose weight the most important and also HARDEST part is MAINTAIN WEIGHT
