My Business Trip

Some of you might remember that I had a business trip to Penang and Kulim middle of Nov08 AND I promised to upload some of the photos that I took. This is actually the second time in 2 months that I went there for business trip. The first time was on my own and since it was the first time that I was there, it was really really really really boring. I was really looking forward to coming back (but I did miss the hot shower at the hotel!HAHA!! Babe, time for us to invest in our own heater...)

Anyway, the second time was with another colleague and we left together with four other customers of our to visit the vendor for an audit. And as usual, since we are with customers (and big shots too :P), our vendor took really good care of us and bought us for yummy seafood dinner. Of course, all thanks to our customer special request for mud crab, I think I ate enough seafood in that two nights to last me pretty long time.

On the last day there, since my flight was in the evening and the colleague and his family is actually staying in Penang, they have nicely offered to bring me around Penang. I was relunctant at first as I didn't want to bother his weekend with his family too much. After all, he only get to see his wife and kids a couple of days every week unless there is a public holiday or he is on leave. But after some pursuasion that the kids will enjoy it too, I agreed (KEKEKEKE! Haiyaa..pretend to be shy mar, cannot ah????)

So, after having bak kut teh and yam rice for breakfast, we drove around Penang and we stopped at a cendol store by the side of the road. He told me that this is one of the most famous cendol in Penang and I had to believe him because I can see hanging at the stall, a photo of Phua Chu Kang having cendol too! A humble A4 size photo laminated with see through plastic. Of course, the moment I taste the rich creamy coconut milk cendol with the sweet gula melaka, I am hooked! Definitely need to bring babe here to try this.

After that, too stuffed to even contemplate or think about any other food (although the colleague promised there will be more to come before he sent me to the airport), we went to the temples near the hotel. And if I did not tell you that this photos were taken in Penang, I think you would have thought I went across the border to Thailand! Just look at this amazing photos took with my motorola K3 handphone. (WISH I HAVE A DSLR!A D60 would be good. Or even a secondhand well cared for G9<-hint!). I will not put any comments at each of the photos because I think they speak for themselves.
