arrived around 3pm at Berjaya Georgetown. the counter people said the rooms will only be ready at 4pm. okayyy.. so we go shop next door at the rather run down one stop shopping centre. still managed to buy two tops there though. the eternal bargain hunter!
parents went back to hotel first. only to find that the rooms were still not ready at 530pm, and only when they demanded to speak to the duty manager were the room keys produced. and after they checked in, another family knocked on the door saying they
were given the rooms too. what rubbish management! Berjaya dah GAGAL!
finally we settled in and went for a lovely nyonya dinner at nyonya breeze. rather small portions but quite cheap, total bill ran up to around RM115 for 9 people. for that u get two servings of lobak, ubi kayu, pee hu char, kacang botol, chun piah, curry chicken kapitan, sambal prawns, otak-otak, and bubur chacha for dessert.
and at night slept early to get ready for WORLD CUP FINAL!
actually i thought it would start at 3am so groggily woke up to a score of 1-1 at 2.32am. was rooting for italy(even though they eliminated germany!) coz imho france knocked portugal out on a dubious penalty. why do they keep getting dubious penalties? ah well the ref missed a legit one for france later on in the match. and i was drifting in and out of sleep so i missed the zidane headbutt too. luckily caught it on replay. and saw the penalties. poor trezeguet. ah well... if onlies...but glad italy won.
time to hit the shops at prangin mall, but after a hearty brunch of more lorbak, mee jawa, char kuay teow, laksa and po piah.
after about 6 hours of shopping, we conquered prangin mall!
haul: 1 pair of white wedges, 1 pair of brown pumps(?), 2 tops, 1 jacket, 1 skirt, 1 scarf
no more world cup at night
walked to a nearby hawker for breakfast, their kway teow thng there is really nice, with tasty soup, prawn mee not bad either. had apom and sweet banana pancakes too. penang is such a food haven!
visited grandma's grave in the morning, then went to gurney plaza.
sis bought a top from esprit and a cropped jacket from next. i succumbed to a black skirt from F.O.S.
had lunch at chopper board, i shall refrain from describing what we ate. saw foodloft at the top level and i was just floored by how amazing the decor was. too bad i didnt bring my camera. it was like a high end food court with a breathtaking view of the beach. didn't sneak a peek at the prices though. =p
left gurney and went to aunt's place in changkat minden for dad to catch some winks. then its rushing home to make it for Desperate Housewives!
