After meeting up with Chiwiland, we went to Pangkor Island. That is where my Mom’s hometown is and where my maternal Grandma is residing after she got married to my late Grandpa. Fyi, Grandma is a Penang lang.
Tip: If you plan to go Pangkor Island, remember this. At the Lumut jetty, ferry operator is selling the tickets at Rm10 for tourists and RM6 for Pangkorists.
Not many people know about it. More like a hush-hush thingy among authorities, but my Mom warned us beforehand that we should pay for the tickets at RM6. I mean, we are still a locals and these people hike up the price to earn from tourist. So, what happened was…. my Mom went and bought the ticket.
“APA SEPULUH RINGGIT. ENAM RINGGIT!”
Of course, the ticket seller was caught by surprise and was dumbfolded.
We made a stop at my Grandma’s house. As usual, my aunt had prepared a big pot of asam laksa. That was our favourite! Maklumlah, ikan kembung (mackeral fish) originate from Pangkor. And… and… do I have to add? Aunt uses the traditional way to cook the stock, i.e. by using charcoal and clay pot! Syok 99!
During our younger days, we used to stay over night at my Grandma’s house. Nowadays, you know… our family members have multiplied by 4. There is no way to accomodate so many of us plusssssssssssss I CAN’T SLEEP WITHOUT AIRCON!
Off we went and checked in at the hotel near the beach. Woohoo! Suaku city people like me love
I have sea phobia; sudden drop + big wave + swept by wave + drowning. It all happened again when we recklessly assumed one of us is watching the kids. I’m sorry baby. But when unexpected things happen, please don’t blame the other to make yourself look innocent. Ok? But, didn’t I tell you to play at the beach and not in the water???!!! Huh! Huh!
We had fun digging a hole and burying Baby Princess in it. At the beginning, she was smiling and laughing with us. After sometime of wiggling, she found out that she can’t move any of her body part. She was wailing for help. All we could do is continue laughing and mummy is so bad to camwhore with her. lol
Beach isn’t complete without going for a stroll for seashells. And I stumble upon this right before my big toe.
I have seen and picked star fish but not this type of seashell with an engraved star on it. Overall, we found 4 of this. Isn’t God creation marvellous?
I waited whole afternoon……
… where art thou?
By the time I finish writing this post, it turn out more than “Pangkor Island Trip cum Grandma’s Birthday”. lol
So, Grandma is turning 93y/o this year. Still going healthy and strong.
Typical chinese with typical red eggs.
Dinner so-so only. Nothing much to show off but I’m sure this is attractive!
Mantis prawn in steam egg. The taste? Really nothing to shout about. This is not my usual food angle. They look a bit crappy to me. What to do? I’m sharing a table with my other cousins and they can’t wait to dig into this dish.
The whole night I have been bribing my kids with this,
“Who did not finish the rice, tomorrow cannot sit fast-fast boat.”
“Who is naughty, tomorrow cannot sit fast-fast boat.”
“Time to sleep. Don’t talk. If not tomorrow cannot sit fast-fast boat.”
So, be good ya? Tomorrow I bring you go sit fast-fast boat
