Temples of Penang Posted by Picasa

Penang Bridge Run was my very first half marathon. It was where I got my very first finisher medal in year 2000. Going back this year sure brought lots of memories. I arrived a day earlier to The Pearl of The Orient a day before with a few friends and colleagues by overnight bus. Did some sight seeing and visited two famous temples at Burma Lane. Of course, not forgetting the food. You will never go hungry in Penang. Never ever. For lunch, we went to a corner restaurant at Lebuh Keng Kwee for the famous Char Koay Teow and Asam Laksa. I had both and still had room for a bowl of ice-cold cendol. Yummy!

We stayed at the same hotel as the previous’ time - Vistana. It is the nearest hotel to the start point, approximately 5 km away. However, it is not advisable to walk from Hotel to the Start Point at USM or back. We found out the hard way after the run.

One more reason to pick Vistana – it is located 5 mins walk to Bukit Jambul Shopping Mall. We do not need to travel far for food abd shopping.
