Since we could not request for an extended check-out time on Friday, hubby and I decided to while away our time at Gurney Plaza. We wanted to take a cab there but taxi operators in Penang charge exorbitant fees. We were slaughtered 3 times there. For a drive that lasted less than 5 minutes, we were charged between RM10-RM12! So we walked from Northam Suites where we stayed to Gurney Plaza, which took us about 25 minutes. It was a long walk and thankfully it was really breezy and not too hot. But when we finally reached Gurney Plaza, we were both really sweaty and hot. I quickly did some shopping and bought some clothes while hubby took over Baby C. He had cakes and juice at a nice little English-like eatery that sells cakes and tea, served in dainty and pretty plates and cups.
At Gurney Drive. The weather was really fine and it was really breezy that afternoon. We could walk quite comfortably along the beachfront at 3pm and smell the not-so-fresh ocean breeze.
