Findings from Penang
I will get to see something interesting whenever I went back to Penang..
My trip back for my grandma's funeral is not an exceptional...
I will say more about the funeral 1st..
As compared to my maternal grandma's funeral, my paternal grandma had a much lower profile one..
It is simple and fast.
She was cremated. =(
But glad the rest of them are coping well..
However, the ambience was very solemn and quiet..
It seems like the family in my dad's side dun really talk..
All super quiet..I tried to break ice and talk but...
doesnt seem to work..
I wonder if we will keep in contact..
Hmmm..will try though..
They are my kins after all...
Hope she rest in peace..
As I said..
Alot of findings..
1. I am cleaner than my big aunt!
Wah tell u all ar..i kana like 20-odd mosquitoes bites at her plc just one night!!! Her floor was so sandy..and got lot of dark black patches on the floor..eeeeeeek yerrr...
2. Projection on the building wall?
I was having my dinner at a open spaced hawker and I saw this projection on the building wall..
I think the kopitiam boss trying to attract people to dine in with this additional entertainment....
Hmm..but i dun see how it is entertaining..there is no sound and the images were quite blurred..
Some more the wall that they projected on was not white but yellow..
Like that can watch meh?-_-"
3. My family in FOOD business & are doing great in it!
Two of my cousins from my maternal side are in koay chay and fried oyster egg business..
Before my 1st uncle retired..he was in the koay teow teng and wanton mee business..
Well..it explains clearly my passion in food and getting my butt into the foodie industry..
They selling at "Li Xing Hua Yuan Mei Li Hua Ying Shi Zhong Xin" near the bus terminal/Pesta in Penang..

5. Wat Chaiya Mangkalaram
It is a thai temple which has one of the world's longest reclining Buddhas (33 meters) in it.
