a breakie

Howdeeeee, Bahija is currently in Penang. Been sleeping a lot, hiding myself in the room, today woke up at 10 am, wow - this is a privilege where I missed so much...thesedays life in KL kind of busy, hardly can sleep till 10 am. It's great ! I am staying in this super cheap hotel , where else besides the Air Asia Tune hotel. I paid $24 for 3 nights room fees, $30 for admin fees, $12.85 for 12 hours air-cond, plus the taxes - total is $ 73 for 3 nights of stay. To me, it's super great value for money. This Tune hotel is at Jln Burma, right in the town center , nearby Komtar , Prangin mall , nearby the new mall Times Square as well. It's still new, the room is clean, the bedsheet is white, clean and soft - very nice to sleep. It's a very simple small room with attached bathroom. There's no TV. At first I felt tooo quiet , after a while, I got to enjoy the quietness :). Ironically, when I paid for expensive hotels, I usually don't spend time in the hotel, likewise, I am spending almost whole day in this cheap room which has no facility at all ..haaa, well, this is my rest lepak do nothing vacation, so it works well for me. Rapid Penang is operating in Penang (PG), this is good for the travellers, we don't have to take the super expensive PG cabs. From PG airport to Komtar, take bus 401, 401A , $2 bus fare - but the fare will be increased soon. FromKomtar , you can walk to Jalan Burma Tune hotel , 5 mins walk. I didn't know it's so near, paid a cab $10 for that short distance, the meter only showed $3.50 of fare ....oh well. From Komtar, take bus 101 to Batu Ferinngi, Tanjung Bungah area. Basically, it's good to stay in Tune hotel, strategic location. From the hotel, walk across to Jln Zainal Abidin, walk all the way till the end, turn left , then cross the road - it's the famous hawker food in front of Sunway Hotel - yummy food !!
I'm glad to meet up with some old friends, and catch up with things or 'gossips' in life - heee. Special thanks to Kancil , for belanja me food and drinks, for picking me, sending me to various places especially to Kim Possible's house , to visit her and her new born baby. My trip will not be so fruitful without you. Thank You Very Much !
