We headed for Genting Highlands after Penang and stayed there for two nights. This time, we made sure the kids were asleep during the ascent so there was no motion sickness vomiting from Adam. The weather wasn’t great and it was rainy so we didn’t do very much outdoors. It mainly shopping and eating but Anya had fun playing too.
I remember taking the funicular train up Penang Hill many years ago with Nav and Angie. We called it the funny colour train. During our Malaysia trip, we went up again, this time with 3 extra little people!
I’m quite fascinated with the old, abandoned buildings on Penang Hill and would love to explore and poke around a little bit more on my own without the kids in tow.
When we went back down, we couldn’t get a cab so we walked all the way out to the main road but still didn’t manage to find one. A very kind passerby offered to call his taxi driver friend to come and get us but we got a cab in the nick of time and didn’t have to trouble him.
We had traditional English afternoon tea at the E&O and it was simply lovely. The kids were a bit restless so it was fortunate that 1885 was relatively empty when we were there. The afternoon tea comes with many little delicious sandwiches, pastries, scones, cakes and chocolates. One of the highlights of our trip for sure!
