东方花园逍遥游-Penang Tour

当我开始在写这心情笔记时,脑子里都是那几天里的美好回忆,但是相对的心里又会觉得这次写这篇帖子是非常挑战性的,因为我有几位朋友是不谙中文的,所以只得双语并用。友人笑我为何这么辛苦,直接写英语就好了嘛!其实由始至今我这心情部落都一贯保持以中文书写,所以为了迁就大家,就只好豁出去啦!(先声明,我的英语文法是实在有够烂的!如果读了之后感觉怪怪的,敬请见谅)

When i was thinking to write on this post, there were many sweet memories filled up my mind. Due to some of my friend can't read any chinese charactors, I started to feel that this was the most challenged for me to write in both mandarin and english.


由于早前工作繁重的压迫感,当时的心情的确是糟透了,于是决定找一天请假出去走走透透气。因缘就是那么不可思议,正巧得知有一班来自[槟城福建]的听众有举办一个聚会,同时也是好友奕龙的乔迁还有生日之喜,友人双喜临门是的确该前去道贺一番。星期四晚上下了班之后,就赶到车站去乘搭长途巴士直达槟城。

I feel very pressure due to overloaded work load previously, my mood getting bad & bad. So I planning to give myself a break for me to take a breath. As get to know that there was a [Penang Hokkien Podcast] listener's gathering held during Raya season, thus also to celebrate my friend "Dragon" moved in to his new house & advanced birthday. So on thursday nite afterwork, I quickly rush to bus terminal nearby & straight away travelled to Penang.


由于司机漏夜飞车的关系,隔天早上我其实大约早上8点半左右就抵达槟城车站了。由于见距离约定的时间还早,于是就步行到车站附近的九皇爷庙去拜拜并享用素食早餐。当时间差不多9点半之后,想必夜猫友人也应该起身了吧,于是就开始发送手机简讯告知。等了一下子,友人奕龙连早餐也来不及吃,就匆匆赶到车站去了。

I actually arrived in Penang around 8.30am, as It's still early, so I decided walk to the temple nearby to prayer & also having vegetarien breakfast. An hour later, I started to sms my friend "Dragon" to meet up at bus terminal. So sorry when get to know he actually rushed over without having breakfast.


上了车子后我们一起到小贩中心去吃东西,奕龙说这里有个摊位是卖爪哇面的,我的内心一阵欣喜,毕竟我都整10多年里都没吃过了。眼见桌上那碟热腾腾的爪哇面,还没入口之前,就好像乡巴佬般拿起手机对着美食猛拍一番。饱食一顿后,奕龙就带我到那新开张不久,而且又是北马最大间的Queen'sbay Mall去逛逛。大约中午时分,我们就回到[龙门客栈]-奕龙的新家休息去咯!下会再跟大家分享槟城的美食篇,不要错过哦!

Afterwards we decided to having a breakfast at nearby hawker center. Dragon Said to me that there got a stall which selling Jawa mee, I was excited coz since already 10++years I didn't eat this liao... when the food is serve on table, I snap photo crazily using my HP. After breakfast, Dragon drive me to Queensbay Mall - the largets shopping mall in Penang. Around noon time we back to Dragon new house to take some rest. I'll be sharing something regarding Penang local foods in my next post, so do checked back here more often ok!
