Our second stop in Malaysia was the Island state of Penang. We were her for 7 nights. Main priority here was to chill out & do as little as possible...and we pretty much succeeded in that.
Hotel was great with awesome pool area where I dominated the V-ball net all week(just as well as you couldnt swim in the sea due to jelly fish...nice). But the highlight had to be happy hr everyday by the pool from 5 - 7 with 1/2 price drinks. I think we both got through the whole cocktail list a few days after arriving =)
As you can see from the pics, we both took advantage of the "watersports" (get your mind out of the gutter Adam) & both went parasailing which was amazing & I also had a bit of a jet-ski.
On the street out front of our hotel were night markets & heaps of different places to eat more delicious , cheap food. We even had the opportunity to toke on one of those ethnic pipe thingys, which ended in disaster after I knocked the thing flying off the chair & it smashed into 1000 pieces with water running through the restaurant (thats strong sh*t =). If people weren't looking at us already, they certainly were now! Polly & I both agree that this was the single most embarrassing experience in our lives!
We also spent a night out in the capital, Georgetown, where we took advantage of being able to buy a vodka bottle & get free mixers all night, though the "entertainment" was interesting.
Next stop Kota Kinabalu....
