Bukit Bendera in Penang

We went for short holiday in Penang recently. Or more like few weekends ago. Just don't have the time to sit down to blog these days! Erin is taking much longer to sleep nowadays. Instead of being fast asleep around 10pm, this girl now wants to go downstairs to play with her toys and then bring up her toys one-by-one, sometimes up to almost 12am.  Sometimes, I doze off while waiting for her to come back upstairs. And then wake up to find assorted things like a beach ball, some naked Barbie dolls, a plastic hair dryer etc etc next to me.  Haiyoh.....

Anyway, back to our Penang trip. Got plenty of photos in my phone, but here are the ones for Bukit Bendera :


All ready to go kai-kai - Sunglasses?  Checked!  Caps ?  Checked!


At the foothill


New Train to go up
Gotta be careful though! While we were asking the guard whether we could still enter the carriage (only standing space available), Elyssa suddenly screamed cos her right leg fell in between the gap of the train and stairs. We quickly pulled her up - luckily no injuries but she was in shock for a while. 3 girls who were sitting on the bench practically jumped up and offered to let us sit. (caring Malaysians still exist. Yay!) By the time we reached the top of the hill, Elyssa was back to her normal self already.


Posing with some owls


Nothing much to see at the top of the hill. We decided to have a leisurely lunch at David Brown's Restaurant.  Ended up spending almost 2 hours there.

Love the garden!
 
 
Girls enjoyed the garden while we waited for our food. Weather was nice.
 

Lunch is served!
Edible but nothing great. Definitely overpriced.



Luckily the nice surroundings made up for the food quality. 

 
Some pretty flowers from the garden
 
After the leisurely lunch, we walked around a bit then took the train down.
 
 
We got first row seats on the first carriage. Nice!

 
Happy on daddy's lap

Dear Adrine,

We will be having a free clinic consultation for parents who have picky eating children. We came across your blog and thought that you might be interested to attend. It will be happening very soon this week so do get in touch with us if you are interested to learn more. Thank you.
