Trip to Da Zoooooo....

Salam to all loyal readers (yes, both of you),

I know it has been a while since i updated this blog. So 2010 and 2011 were busy years for the family, lots of birthdays an new cousins, Alhamdulillah.

Kids also started school, so there was a lot to do and DISCOVER!!!

Here is our first family Zoo trip. We went on a weekday to avoid the crowd, which was a smart move!! Anyway, here are some picks. ENJOY!!!

Took day off to avoid the crowd...Smart Plan
Cutie in Golden Cage...not part of the exhibit
Train ride costs extra...of course
The birdies population grew from a few to a few hundred within a few years. Phewww!!

First stop : El Tigre of course.....
They can easily jump that moat, and i thought tigers love water??? Better hurry off kids!!!
Then it was Jaguar and Puma....Mr Grrrowlleeeyyyy
Waiting for the show to start

Making faces while we wait for the Animal Show

Pakat Mai Penang @ Nasi Kandaq OD

Back in August, the company I work with organized a Family Day + Annual Dinner getaway to the Pearl of the Orient...PULAU PINANG!!!! Funny i didn't notice any large plantations of pokok pinang around the island hmmmmm but i didn't get to round round the whole island.

Had a most excellent time. Needless to say twas the first trip to Penang for the kids and my last one was 21 years ago, with Abah and Awang. I remember vividly because it was during that trip that i switched my guitar strings to lefty and actually learned a few chords.

We stayed at Holiday Inn Batu Feringgi, which was excellent considering the company paid for everything. We got to drive around a bit, not to the Balik Pulau side but just between Georgetown and Batu Feringgi. There's a place called Miami Beach hahaha... I thot i almost saw Lt. Horatio Caine YEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYY!!!!!

Anyway, here are some pics for posterity. We definitely will mai Tanjung again, Insya Allah!!!

The hotel room...not bad at all and the hotel food was quite tasty

Couple of Cabana Boys, looking Cool :P
