I went to town last Sunday as early as 10.30am, parked the car at Beach Street and met up with Alvin at the Rapid Penang bus terminal at Jetty to take the bus to Prangin Mall.
The reason that we don’t want to park our cars at Prangin Mall because the parking rate at the mall is blood sucking, it was once I got sucked up RM5 for only a 2 hours movie and I don’t want to park there anymore unless I am forced to, else I would be taking the bus to town.
Since it’s Sunday, parking at Beach Street was free and the whole thing was going to Jing Si’s Books and Cafe to read up some book but since it’s early, so we went to Prangin Mall to look for food first.
It has been a long time since I had boarded the bus at this terminal, the Rapid Penang bus company revamped the terminal and gave it a better look then before. Still remember the last time I always get on the bus was 2 years back when I was a frequent visitor to Jing Si’s as that time I was having PMR examination.
We’ve waited for the free CAT (Central Area Transit) bus for a long time but it didn’t show up at the time we wanted it to be, so we were forced to hopped on the lousy old bus to get to KOMTAR.
Well, we walked around and had lunch there. Saw that Maxis Broadband was having a roadshow there and I went to played some Facebook’s typing game and got a free goodies bag for myself. I love free stuff. It was just just quite simple, just play the game and free goodies bag I got.
Back to the bus station, we successfully hopped on the CAT bus this time and saved up RM1.40 to go back to Beach Street.
Since I didn’t really know where to stop, I suggested to stop at Pitt Street then take a walk as exercise after lunch to Beach Street.
It’s only about 1km away and I was leading the way because Alvin doesn’t really know the way around in town.
It’s lovely to find the Peranakan Mansion along the way which I have never been in before but now I can tell people that I’ve passed by this place before. Hehe.
I then spent my whole afternoon sitting at Jing Si’s Books and Cafe, for tea and also revision for the trial exam that is happening right now. I ordered a very weird tea, the Lavender Tea and it smells like soap. Not guarantee that I will never order it again but for now, I’ll prefer not to order it again. Hehe.
