This is one of the best and most fun-filled holidays for the girls in Penang. Ever since Cass' operation in Penang in 2009, our family has been making yearly trips to Penang, for Cass to see the surgeon for follow-up consultations and new treatments.
This time, we stayed at Four Points Sheraton, Penang and we loved this hotel and the awesome beach.
The beach was teeming with an assortment of seashells. Never in our
lives had we seen such a bountiful of seashells on a stretch of beach.
Can you spot Alycia, Sherilyn, Cass, my dad and me in the picture below?
The girls could not contain their curiosity and got their daddy and
koong koong to climb the rocks with them to the other side of the beach
to check it out and bruised their knees and hands. I joined in the fun
too! I used to do a lot of these adventurous stuff during my teenage
days. I'll bet you won't believe that this puteri lilin here who would
literally melt in the sun was a Girl Guides Patrol Leader and an avid beach
camper eh? ;) Well, that was yonks ago.
The girls found some life clams and did an experiment by submerging a clam in some water in the hotel sink but nope, the clam did not open up.

Can you believe my mum is just 2 years shy of her 70th birthday? She is exactly 68 years old today! Happy birthday mummy! May God bless you with many, many more happy birthdays. I pray that you will live long enough to witness Alycia, Sherilyn and Cass' graduation from university and witness their wedding and birth of their children too! :)

Everyone had a blast in Penang. Not forgetting the seafood - we had crabs and prawns for 2 days. Hubs also brought us on a 'jalan-jalan cari makan' tour of Penang to search and tuck into the best hawkers food in Penang. Hubs commented that he ain't going to touch crabs and prawns for the next 3 months. Hmmm, I shall see how long he can abstain from his favorite food!
