We stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel on Penang in the area of Batu Fenenghi. It was a really good family hotel. Pool: check. Waterslides: check. beach: check. We were set.
The food was amazing, even at the hotel. I had nasi lemak for breakfast every day. I am giving up Western breakfast for now on and just going for rice, curries, and noodles. Malaysian food is too good to not eat at every meal.
We spent a day in Georgetown and found ourselves in the middle of a race and some kind of festival. Then we meandered up to the area of town where the street art is located.
It is a very historical, slightly dilapidated old UNESCO heritage site of the old British colonial Penang. They commissioned street art to raise awareness of animal cruelty and it was great to go check it out.
|PLEASE MOM! I don't want to go on a bike!!!|
We persevered and forced them to ride, helmetless, through the streets and they actually had a great time.
For some unexplainable reason everyone thought Seth was a celebrity and got their picture with Seth on a tiny bike with Tiger in the back.
The next day we went to Escape Adventure park which is like a jungle outdoor amusement park but instead of rides you have ropes and carabiners. We all had a lot of fun and sweated buckets
The next day we went home. Stopped at a few of the R&Rs which have little local wet markets and squatter toilets. It was good to be home.
