Penang Food Trip

This is my third time flying to Penang just for food excitement. I am quite like Penang for the food offering there but I hate the traffic there. The road tend to jam up during the weekend. Maybe this is due to many people like me, who rush to Penang to satisfy their gastronomical appetite. My previous trip was exciting as I am giving the opportunity to be in the plane cockpit to see the pilots in action. This time is good as I am staying a night in Penang. Previous trip, I took the first flight and came back by the last flight of the day. That was tired, imagine have to take 7am flight and come back by 9.30pm flight.


Departed from Subang Airport. Looks so nice now after major renovation last year.
