2 months late & I really need to blog about penang trip with my bestfriend before 2018 ends. It’s our first trip as a complete 6, before this we had our Sabah trip but incomplete. Hard to gather the 6 of us, after 10 years of friendship we made it.
I was the only person who flew to Penang from Kuala Lumpur, they flew from Kuching and we met at the Penang Airport on 14.07.2018. As usual, I’ll slept at the KLIA if I booked the first flight and I had a bad dream. Ohh.. it’s not a dream, it’s the reality! Our reservation has been cancelled on the day our check in date! Urghhh!
I just woke up and need to spread this bad news to my friend whom I don’t know whether they’re still asleep or wide awake. Eee… lucky that they stay calm and we discussed it face to face at the Penang Airport the moment they arrived.
Finally, we found a cheap hotel at Georgetown that provided us a room that can fit the 6 of us. Our trip started with late lunch at Deen Maju but only after I took my bath. Sorry to whoever sat next to me in the plane, if you smell someone didn’t bathe, that’s me! Hehehe!
Ahhh.. to lazy to write down the details of our trip itinerary. We went to all famous places such as Deen Maju, Avatar Penang, Uptown at Batu Ferringhi, Design Village, Gurney Drive Open Air, Penang Hills, and many more. 4 days in Penang full of laughter, tummy is happy but my trip ended with sad moment. Malaysia Airlines did email and called me on Sunday regarding my flight was cancelled and they asked me to change flight time. So, I change it to afternoon but unfortunately flight was fully booked. Then I change it to second flight and the moment I was at the airport ready to check in, the staff informed me all flight was fully book for that day. Fully book! Not available until the next day. I called my husband asked him to book me a new flight under Airasia which their flight still available and end up with my husband nagged at me. I informed him about this trip just a few days before I flew, he gave me a green light but I didn’t knew that he was actually mad at me. I cried at the airport and I felt so guilty that I was so happy with my friends, I forgot about him for 4 days and I called him when I was in trouble. Hmmm.. what kind of a wife I am? I didn’t informed him about this trip early because it’s a week after his birthday and I already planned with his family to surprise for his birthday. I don’t want to make him sad by planning nothing for his birthday and busy planning a trip with my bestfriend. I didn’t told my bestfriend about this sad ending of my trip. It’s just I had so much fun and I don’t want make any scene. If you guys ever read this post, yes, my flight was cancelled and bought a new flight ticket to Kuala Lumpur on that day. Lucky that the ticket price was only Rm130 or else I will cry out loud at the airport.
Thank you to my husband who was mad but still bought a new flight ticket for me. Hmm.. I love you, sorry again. If you ever read this Sayang, please take note, maybe next week or whenever I’m free, I’ll post about your birthday surprise. Hehehehe.. too busy to blog!
Anyway, hope that the 6 of us can have our second trip soonest! Ohh, we had our first ‘secret santa’ at Penang and we need this to be our annual tradition.
