(Clockwise: Churches of Saint Francis, Saint George, of the Assumption, Saint Anne)
We are still cheered in thoughts about our last minute decision of traveling to Penang despite the ifs and buts (like staying there for only a few days). It is a long story, but yes, we spent the Holy Week in this island prominent for its representation of East and West (claimed to be one of the 10 islands that one should explore before he dies). Although after a short stay, it marked more on me as “one of my weakest spots” (read: food heaven).

Another set of captures aside from those previously featured in travelogues about Malaysia.

This is a long overdue post, which I am finally putting ”in print”, especially for those who asked about our executive bus experience when I tweeted about it months ago.
We have tried traveling from Singapore to Malaysia by air which was a breeze at 30-minute flight. While in Kuala Lumpur, we were reoriented (I had a first glimpse through KG’s post) by the hotel staff that trailing through the executive buses seems more attractive. Hence, from Malaysia back to Singapore, we jumped in it. We took the 18-seater (3 x 6) Five Stars bus and hardly believed the comfort it offered. It is decent, homey, armed with entertainment (like the in-flight) system, and has more leg room than the economy flights. While I insinuate that it was like being in a plane, you will not see the clouds up close but the refreshing views of Malaysia instead.
(I am not sure if I mentioned in any of my Malaysia travelogues that most of its views and corners are very much like the Philippines’.)
