Penang - Day 2 @ Straits Quay

Day 2 in Penang....

Caleb woke up at 7:30am just right after sunlight shinning through the window curtain. Arrgghhhh......he was trying to peer my eyes open. Well, it makes sense la, being in other place there must be a lot of things to explore. Better wake up early.... :)

We had a simply breakfast and lunch at home. After Caleb's 2 hour nap, we went to Strait Quay for dinner.


A brand new iconic landmark in Penang. 

Can you spot "Straits Quay"?

Walking through the foyer. Some booths set up selling Christmas ornaments, house-deco, household thingy, forks, plates, spoons, bowls...you got the idea.


Spotted a HUGE Christmas Tree at the entrance.


Since we came here on one of the weekday, it was empty. Caleb can run around like wild goose without me chasing after him. I can just sit on the bench watching him without the worries of him knocking into somebody else or somebody else knocking into him.

Empty. Not a soul....

 
The wild running goose....yeeee haaaaa!!

And then he found something. Oh great, a fountain......

mmmm...what should I do with it?

He looked at me with this weird smile and I said "No, you cannot swim-swim in there, ok?" He is soooo addicted to pile or pool filled with water now ever since he had his first dip in A'Famosa last Dec.

And he coming up with this stunt........

Ready....

Steady....

GO!!!.....

Look...it's a bird, no, it's a plane..., no, IT'S SUPERBABY..... Hahahaha.....

and he can go on and on and on.....until we need to drag him away. But then he sweet-talked my aunt to go there again. This baby really don't give up easily....

"Ee poh...come come, go there again, ok?"

Finally we succeed in luring him away when we said we will bring him to see boats. 


He was stunned for a moment after seeing so many boats around.

"wahhh....so many boats"

"Mami, mami...tai boat (see boat)"

Caleb getting haywire and running like a wild goose again

After a few rounds of climbing up and down the stairs and running here and there, finally he sat down. Battery 'RECHARGING'....

Oh wait...I need to recharge.

Oh stones...fascinating uhhhh.....

Tonight's dinner @ Ding BBQ and Steamboat Restaurant. After heard my cousin raving about it so much, finally I got chance to taste it.


Displaying all their ingredients on a kaiser belt.

My cousin done most of the grilling and cooking part as she said she is already an expert :) I just need to entertain my 'boss' and eat....

Oh thank you very much. I gladly obliged. :)


While waiting for food to cook, as usual Caleb will request to play with 'bear-bear', one of his favourite apps in my IPhone.

After a full dinner, we walked around on the side walk and trying to speed up our digestion.

The night view is simply amazing and breathtaking. I was admiring the view until Caleb came to me tugging my hand. Yes, he wants to go playing with bloody stairs again.... Sigh....

Hi Wabbitfoot, love your callsign. I sure miss Penang, last time there was in the early '80s.
You sure got one real cute boy there.
I guess Penang must have changed a lot too.
Love eating at Gurney drive, poh pia, oh chien, and pasembur especially.

You have fun and keep a song in your heart.
Lee.
