11th September (Friday) - Farewell to everyone
Today is our last day in Penang. These 5 months have been truly memorable. On our last day, everyone from the STK1 and STK4 offices gave us parting gifts of Butterworth's local specialty. It is very touching as we say farewell to everyone and took group photos together.
Here are the ladies from STK1. Our site office is in the STK1 office, so we are in contact with them all the time.
And the ladies from STK4. The staffs from STK4 feels like one big happy family. I visit their office very often too.
The extended family of STK1. There are two storeys to STK1, so the ladies from the second storey also join us. We always see them walk up and down the stairs as our site office is just next to their stairs.
8th September (Tuesday) - Dinner at Tao
The visit to Tao has been quite a great coincidence. Kent, who has already returned to Singapore, sent me a newspaper article of this Japanese restaurant in Autocity call Tao. In the afternoon, the local subsidiary team asked for advice on the places to have dinner and they were referred to Tao too. I immediately call one of them and told them, we want Tao!
And here we go. Walking up the stairs of Tao.
It is Japanese ala carte buffet. We ordered lotsa food till we are full.
And also bottoms up two glasses of beer.
7th September (Monday) - Dinner at Ferringhi Garden
Wan Keong, our local big boss arranged a dinner with us on this day. This is an exquisite high-class restaurant at Batu Ferringhi call Ferringhi Garden.
A lot of foreigners like to visit this restaurant cos the ambience is really nice.
The place is lighted by candles.
There is live music going around table to table.
Here is our group photo. :-)
Check out the size of this pepper.
I went for grilled salmon steak.
The musicians came over to our table and started singing 'Pretty Woman'
The koi pond is quite well maintained.
This is the more posh area in Ferringhi garden where people just hang around for pints of beer and strong liquor.
The garden is also a great place where exotic plants can be found.
After dinner, Wan Keong recommended us a place at Jelatong where a famous Leng Lui (pretty girl) dessert can be found.
5th September (Saturday) - Northam Beach Cafe
After reading through the Ho Chiak list sent by Wan Keong, we decided to check out the Northam Beach Cafe.
It is al fresco dining by the sea.
We ordered a lot of BBQ stuffs.
3rd (Thursday) and 11th September (Friday) - Morning Dim Sum
During Kent's and our final day in Penang, we have Dim Sum morning breakfast. According to Kent/Chok, the Dim Sum here is half the price back in KL.
2nd September (Wednesday) - Korean Dinner
We decided to go Korean for Kent's farewell dinner. We ordered the steamboat and some side dishes. It comes up to only RM140.
Here is our group dinner.
Every morning and evening when we cross Penang bridge, I love to observe the beautiful sky. Here is a morning sky.
