Last week was quite eventful. First, I went on a short trip to Penang Malaysia for an unit retreat.
Glad to see that vegan meal served in Philippine Airline was not too bad, just wished quantity was larger.
I arrived the hotel around 7pm, after leaving my luggage I went out looking for some food. As I walked around, i realised that Penang looks like an old fashion chinese small town
quickly I found the vegan restaurant I found in HappyCow
For appetiser I order the air-fried mushroom satay with the typical peanut butter sauce of Penang. It was absolutely the most delicious satay I’ve ever had!!! I finished it in <10 min with a lot of omg in between.
for entree I order a soy milk soup that came with red rice. The soup had mushrooms, tofu and bok choy. Compared to the satay dish, it was just okay. But I was hungry so I finished it all anyway.
On the third day, we had an outdoor treasure hunting activity at Georgetown
it was hot but we had a lot of fun exploring the town visiting clan houses of first chinese immigrants.
and so many street arts
in the last day of my stay, I visited Penang hill
to watch the sunset
so peaceful and calming
I got back on Saturday evening and realised that I had a hiking adventure booked few weeks ago with my running group. It was Masungi Georeserve, a stone formation reserve that had 8 “challenges”.
the course was rather easy and the course was mainly flat but the view was gorgeous
I love love love being in the nature, it invigorates me
it was really nicely done (3 years in the making), very secure and entertaining, preserving the nature as much as possible
and doing it in a group was really fun
Needless to say, I was exhausted by the end of week but at the same time recharge for the new week. 🙂 My only complaint would be how much I missed the girls. Fortunately grandma is with them so I know they are well taken care of.
