A Tourist in Penang

I really recommend to yall who are planning to go to Penang, yall should go explore the other side of Batu Feringghi, which is Balik Pulau (if I’m not mistaken) yup yes it is Balik Pulau. Okay hahaha just try ok? Go there and you can see the beautiful view of Penang from the hill top, but yeah you have to be really good at driving through steep roads. Then, go to Chowrasta Road, and you can find old books (and new) stores just up the stairs leading inside the Chowrasta Market. I love going there! You can find old and new books at cheap price. I also did found an old book with post-it’s inside with notes. Omg feels so cool righttt? Then you can go to Street Art, ride a bicycle or beca or you can just walk around there because the mural painting’s is not on one spot. While you’re walking, there are cafes, hotels, that are really old and vintage.
Seriously, explore more then just the famous spots of Penang.
Next time in Penang, I would loveee to go to Escape, Botanical Garden, and Taman Negara Pulau Pinang!! Crave for some thrilling activities. 
And alsooooo go to Sungai Pinang,  where P. Ramlee house is located! And go to Bukit Bendera hehe.

What’s next?

2 days. 2 days straight of “girls-day-out” with my close friends. We go for karaoke, movies, shopping, and we laughed a lot. I don’t have many close friends. I only go out with them or my family, that’s all. No backup friends etc. Today, (again) (haha) the four of us are reunited again! Actually…I have 7 close friends, including myself, but…now they’ve decreased, but that doesn’t mean the other 2 is not my friends anymore. It’s just that…. one day, you suddenly stop talking to each other, ignore their presence, just smiled and somehow its just awkward to start all over again.

So you keep quiet. You move on. You try to cheer up, open up your mind and see where’s life bringing you. At first, I thought I lost my best friend. I am so mad at this situation.  Of course I am sad, me and my best friend rarely talk anymore. But then…. I realized that she is happier now. She is more focused in her studies. And if she’s happy, I’m happy. That’s enough for me. I accept what has happened. Because a true friend, is the one who at the end of the day, no matter how long you guys have been separated, or you meet new friends, both of you still remember that nothing is gonna change between the two of you. Both of you are still friends. Maybe not today, maybe tomorrow, or maybe you will reunite again…..in heaven. So SPM has ended. After this, life is just going to get harder. But that doesn’t mean life is never gonna get fun too. I realized that, all of us are going to pursue our own dreams. It’s going to be a long journey.
