What can I say about this Penang trip?
It was really totally all about the airplane.
We went out to eat 2 times. Once in the foodcourt opposite Swatow Lane for lunch and the other time at a coffee shop near Swatow Lane for breakfast. I was totally disappointed both times.
Ordered Laksa for lunch that didn't meet up to the sourness, spiciness or the quality. Ordered Koay Teoy Ting (fishball noddles) for breakfast and ended up with more Pork noodles that Fish!!!
Any all other talk of the day was about Christopher in the airplane and the lollipops he got to eat (courtesy of his kungkung).
Of course, we attended the wedding which of course ended up with some rumours. And yes, hubby had a good time since some of his buddies were also invited.
Good thing we rented a car. Cost us RM129 for 24 hours (and a bit). Managed to go around the next morning.
Went to Gurney Drive and had trouble getting the kid back into the ar. It didn't help that I was as mad as him in jumping and running and enjoying myself. Gurney Drive does bring back childhood memories to me too!
One good foodie that I found good though was the fried carrot cake we had in one chinese restaurant in Midland Plaza. It had the right amount of spiciess and was very very tasty. Not too oily too. Reckon it was partly due to the unsatisfied craving from breakfast (where I wanted Char Koay Teow (fried noodles) but the guy refused to take my order!!!).
oh...and the plane ride was easy peasy! :) No ear ache whatsoever. Maybe it had to do with my insisting he swallow saliva every other minute, opening his mouth like a goldfish (I had to open mine in return) and his multiple sips of water (which ended up in 3 wet pants by the time we landed).
Christopher of course didn't keep to his seat especially the trip back since he realised he could get away with it (partly) and that it was more fun sitting on mummy's lap looking out of the window. But all in all, when the seatbelt sign was on, he tried very hard to keep in his cannot-see-anything-middle seat!
Now....hubby is talking about going back again before I deliver. Next time we will drive up!
Kiddo all smiles in the airplane!
By the way, the bleeding was due to a fibroid in my uterus.
