Penang (Part 1)

My heart beats like a drum, like a drum. Dumdumdum dumdumdum ♥

That's me @ the famous cendol & asam laksa shop in Gurney, Penang :) How it all started? Let's rewind back to 20th of Aug; I was called in to work cos they told me that they don't have enough ppl. Thomas picked me up & while we were in the car with several others they discussed whether to go to Malacca or Penang THAT very night (ikr, so random). A so-called mini company trip with the excuse of visiting other branches but actually all aso wna go eat & play only lolol while I was pretty excited about goin to the beach (^∇^)

I was quite interested although I dreaded the long car ride but I knew I needed a getaway. San ha sam a bit, escape reality for a couple of days. It wasn't a confirmed decision, said that they'll lemmi know later after everyone has decided. Reached workplace & I immediately whatsapp Mabel to come along with me. She asked her bf Jack & surprisingly they wna go too! Kk so ended up everyone was very keen.

At 10.30PM, Michelle called & rushed us to close the shop, go home, & get my stuff packed within 30 mins. How?! Customers kept coming in & we were counting the sales cash, really can't make it in such a short time. So we delayed till 12am+ & started our journey. Off we go!!!

Ppl who went were Thomas, Mich, Hazel, Mabel, Jack, Seng Loh, Kien Tat, Wai Yip & Jason. Thomas flew like 220km/hr, I almost got a heart attack. The road was so dark & some parts were quite curvy, I didn't manage to sleep a wink at all. When we finally arrived, the first thing the boys hunted for was prawn mee. & I don't ever eat prawns. Or spicy food (-。-;) So I saved myself from the after-midnight calories.

Dave came to find us cos he was alrdy in his hometown @ Kedah. So late dy still come all the way, how nice of him (: Next, we needed a hotel. Found one at Cititel @ 5freakingAM, rented two joint rooms. Settled down with our bags & all when WY said let's go have a drink by the beach. A few of them were tired & hesitated, but my mood was definitely ONS ;) Every single one of us went in the end after our persuasions. Although Thomas, Mich, Jack & Mabel left and went back to the room after reaching the destination for only 15 mins when they realized that it's the quicksand beach that they can't step foot on.

When we reached the hotel, waiting to check in. Seng Loh said I look like I'm whispering to him. Truth is, he wanted to camwhore & I didn't so I was tryina block my face. Excuse my messed up hair, I was sittin in a "flying" car for a couple of hrs (◎_◎;)

Jason & WY doing some crab catching. Really brave but silly, I can't imagine what'll happen if they accidentally fall into the quicksands.

Untitled

And so they caught one!

Don't worry we didn't torture the crab. It alrdy lost a claw when we got it.

Closer view. We released it back to the sea afterwards.

Untitled

Went to another beach!

Untitled

Now we can play with the water!!! Actually still cannot cos all of us nv bring extra clothes or towel, nv expected to hang around till so long. But being the usual playful me, I went in anyway, up till my shorts thr then I told myself that I had to resist & not walk any deeper lolol. What a waste ):

Untitled

It was very sunny. I really love beaches!!!! My idea of a perfect getaway. You can just lay there, relax, & push aside all of the stress for the moment. Next time I'm gna be prepared; with swimwear, shades, sunblock, music, drinks & all. I'll be waitinggg.

& it's obvious that the rest of us played till sunrise wtf. We even drove around to see whr else we could go. Wanted to head to the waterfall but it was too far away & I was exhausted. Till 8.30-9am only satisfied to ciao. Can't believe I managed to wake up on time & check outta the hotel, had only 4 hrs of sleep & survived the whole day. Next, we went for food, food, & more food. First stop; asam laksa, rojak & cendol. Everyone was excited. Everyone but me. It may be a surprise to you but I've never tried asam laksa before in my 21 years of living lol (゚o゚;;) I don't know why either, I just categorized it as "not my type" on first impression so I never bother to try. Since I said before that I can't eat spicy. But even if ppl tell me it's not spicy aso I reject hahaha got problem one me. So yahh :/

I just sat thr & my sisters kept forcing me to try one spoon but I didn't want. So Michelle ordered rojak & cendol for me, afraid that I was hungry. Ate two pieces of the rojak & gave it to everyone else, didn't like it sighhh. The cendol was okay only.

    sometimes they purposely disarm themselves because the claw is rosak, but no worries it can grow back :)
