typicalben airport

Nothing beats a spontaneous trip! Went to Penang for a short getaway with Peishi last week! ;)

typicalben luggage

My airport fashion for this trip, in sweater and sweatpants with my newly bought cabin luggage! Got it a day before my trip as my previous cabin luggage was spoilt. I guess I'm too used to checking in my huge luggage all the time haha.

I can never get tired of this view. Window seats ftw!

Always in awe of the clouds formations, such a beauty.

airport sim card

After landing, we got the data sim-card at these counters. Randy told us that it will be cheaper with more data if we get it outside but for those who didn't want the hassle, you can just get it here.

Our first stop was Armenian Street, the street of art in George Town.

Armenian Street is a street in the inner city of George Town and within the core zone of the Unesco World Heritage Site. Really happy to be able to explore the area although the sun was scorching hot.

Kangkong! The food was pretty good. I think it's one of the better food places to go to if you're staying in Batu Ferringhi area.


The next day, we stayed in the hotel for spa and chill before flying back to Singapore.

We also went to have small bites before flying off! I might be coming back to Penang again soon in the near future. I know we didn't explore much of Penang, so if you have any suggestions on where I should go the next time I visit Penang, do let me know! Will really go try them out next time! Thank you all! ;)
