Fun, fun, fun…

Well, I’m finally home…back home in Sibu, that is. I took the 8.50 a.m. direct flight to Sibu and got here on schedule before 11.00 a.m. Unfortunately, I did not get a chance to go online in the past three days while I was in KL, so the next few posts will still be on things that I did in Penang before I get to what I had been up to in KL.

For instance, my friend, Eng, took me to the Botanic Gardens in Penang…

Penang Botanical Gardens 1

The first and last time as well, I think, that I set foot at that place was in December 1973, and if my memory serves me right, it was called the Botanical Gardens at the time…

Penang Botanical Gardens 2

I cannot recall what it was like at that time and all that I remember is that there was a waterfall and that there were a lot of monkeys. I came across this tree with some interesting fruits…

…and some uniquely beautiful flowers…

Penang Botanical Gardens 4

…and I did notice that the monkeys are still around in abundance…

Penang Botanical Gardens 5

I guess they are the descendants of those that I saw in 1973. This ice cream stall also caught my attention…

Penang Botanical Gardens 6

…but we did not have any as we had stopped at a coffee shop somewhere near the New World Park earlier before we went for a stroll in the Botanic Gardens and I had this ABC (air batu campur)…

…which did not impress me at all. We went for a steamboat dinner after that, but that will come later in another post.

Well, I have the rest of today to rest and recuperate from all the fun, food and the hectic travelling…and tomorrow, it’s back to the grind! Sigh!!!
