11 Days In Penang – Day 1 to Day 4

I am back once again in Langkawi to begin my CA2 phase.

But lets just put CA2 aside and focus on my hometown – Penang, for the time being.

Going back to Penang really helped me a lot. After the gruelling 4 months of CA6, I finally get to relax a little and I took this opportunity to spend quality time with my family and friends and kind of forget about flying for a bit there. >.<

Touched down on Penang on 7th May and am very excited to be home!

Lots of activities have been planned and first on the list? Cameron Highland!

Am going with my parents and believe it or not, its my first time. >.<

Started out journey on the 9th around 0930.

Hohoho! High terrains in sight!

P1060466

Going up! Not as steep compared to Genting Highlands though.

P1060467

Huge farms in sight! Looks more like some top secret lab!

P1060470

Oh there is this place called the Time Tunnel which is a must go for everyone. Its sort of a museum and it is very interesting. They have a lot of really cool collection inside like this 1941 World War II newspaper. And seriously the number of people killed…shocking…P1060471

Another newspaper. This time about Hitler!

P1060475

My mom told me this is what they used to carry when they go grocery shopping. Enviromental friendly indeed!

P1060476

This is one of my favourite. Very simple but very cool.

P1060477

Some old road signs. Some of these signs can still be found on the road still I think. Remember seeing some of these road signs when I was driving around.P1060478

Ammunition box. Carries 3000 5.56mm rounds and weighs 38kg if I remember correctly.

P1060480

This is my first time seeing a real old radio. Only seen in TV before this.

P1060482

Some scales. ^^,

P1060485

Another seen-only-in-TV table lamp. Would probably love to own one next time.

P1060486

A student’s ‘Best Friend’ – The report card!

P1060487

Old Colgate toothpaste’s packaging.

P1060490

This is another of my favourite! A pocket calculator! I am amazed how people designed this. Nowadays everything is electronic but back in those days almost everything is mechanical and it is really cool to see how these things work.

P1060492

Old telephone, projector and a bottle of Dewar’s. Nice~~~

P1060493

Old water pump.

P1060494

Ok I suddenly can’t remember what this is called. Somebody please fill in the blanks. >.< Some sort of repellent.

P1060495

For all the soft drink fans out there!

P1060496

Another soft drink shot. Some of them no longer exist. Can you spot them?

P1060497

This is another favourite! Old school cash register! And surprisingly, it still works! Ka-ching.

P1060499

More soft drinks. I wonder why they don’t produce glass bottled ones anymore. I thought glass is better than plastic? Maybe because of the heavy and fragile glass thats why plastic wins.

P1060502

Spit spit spit and you are creating an epidemic!

P1060504

Kopi anyone? The kopitiam feel.

P1060505

Black and white TV and I have no idea what is the machine below it. Looks like a type-writer but it is not.

P1060506

Some old money.

P1060507

Another unknown machine. Something to do with money definitely but I don’t know how it works. Probably used to print price tags??

P1060508

Forgot what this is called again.

P1060509

Bread toaster! Yum yum! Hungry I am >.<

P1060510

I believe this is called the Gramophones? Yes? No?

P1060511

And I also believe this is called an aeroplane. LOL.

P1060512

Old cameras. Spotted the SLR there. ^^,

P1060513

I have no idea what is this. Maybe a TV?

P1060514

Now Showing! We have the electronic version but this is how it looks like back then.

P1060516

The mobile phone in the 80s. My dad says it cost more than 10k. Guess iPhone wasn’t so expensive after all. >.<

P1060520

Hair dryer that shoots laser. LOL. Kidding.

P1060522

Shopping reminder. Coconut – check. Maggi – Check. LOL.

P1060532

P1060533

After the Time Tunnel, its back to the hotel room for a break before going for dinner and then heading off to the Pasar Malam.

This is out room. Love the slanting roof. The room is at the top floor, so that explains why the roof is slanting. Kinda like living in an attic and I love it. The room cost RM203 for 3 person with breakfast and a dinner steamboat for 3. Quite reasonable to my mind.

P1060539

Then its day 2 at Cameron!

P1060546

We checked out and then we head off to visit the Tea Plantation. And this is another favourite.P1060548

Majestic! This is the Bharat Tea Farm

P1060554

Don’t you wish that we were a ball and just rolls down the railing? ^^,

P1060555

That’s my dad over there on the right of the picture.

P1060556

I love clouds! Fluffy fluffy clouds.

P1060557

After Bharat, it’s off to visit a Temple. Forgot what it is called.

P1060559

Don’t know what flower is this. Anybody knows?

P1060560

A very ‘fat’ toilet sign. >.<

P1060562

Again I have no idea what is this. My mom told me what it was but I can’t remember. Only remember it was called Buddha’s something something.. =.=||

P1060564

This I can remember. Its called the Silver Dust. I can remember because the name is very cool.

P1060566

Can’t remember where this is but its probably a strawberry farm.

P1060567

After that, we head north to another Tea Farm. This time its BOH’s tea farm. Classy indeed.

P1060573

Love the corridor. Look very nice. Love all the wood.

P1060574

An old rolling table used during tea manufacturing.

P1060575

Lets have a cuppa tea shall we?

P1060585

After BOH’s tea farm, we went to conquer the highest road in Malaysia. Situated 6,666ft amsl, it is the highest paved road in Malaysia. Though I do not recommend anyone going up because the road is extremely narrow and it is quite steep. Our car had a tire spin on the way up. Go at your own risk or go if you are driving a jaw-dropping 4WD. We went up with our Iswara. ^^,

P1060588

The view is awesome but still nothing beats the view from the peak of Kota Kinabalu. ^^,

P1060589

That conclude my Cameron Highland’s trip. Went back on the 10th and reached home at about 1900 hours. It was fun and what an experience! Definitely enjoyed it.

I guess I will continue my report again next time since this is already becoming a really really long post and I am just about half way through.

More pictures coming soon. ^^,
