Pearl of Oriental ~Penang here we come~Part 1

Last weekend, bunch of us (Stacy, Benghan, Tony, Mikel, Maverick, Kopi, Jason & Sylvia) drove our way up to Pearl of Oriental for 2 days one night trip! 2.30am Stacy & Mikel came to my place pick me, Maverick & Sylvia up then heading to Tony's place to meet up the rest. We began our journey at 3am, shoot all the way to highway. OMG! the highway kinda dark and lots of lorries on the road, but i still speed 120km/p, hehehehee..:P By 5am we reached Ipoh town, hunt for dimsum, but unfortunately we can't find the famous Fushan dimsum, end up lost in Ipoh town, simply grab some lousy dim sum as our breakfast before continues our journey to Penang.

By 8am we reached Penang!! Yeah! Pass by the Penang Bridge, we went to Penang wet market hunt for breakfast. The morning market so crowded. We went to one of the kopi tiam had drinks, Jason & I manage to grab a pair of ear ring in the wet market, damn cheap! ^-^

After the morning market, yet still early for us to check-in to the hotel, we went to Bayan Baru, Queensbay mall which is the new shopping mall in Penang. Wow! Design concept same as Mid Valley, but still lots of empty shot lots yet to be opened. Most of the labels can get from KL, so just did our window shopping and camwhore session!! The funny thing was we went to Jusco food court, our mobile phone totally no network coverage there. We can't even call out while we enjoy our drinks.
