    • Ferry Day

      What did we do on Labor Day? We went on a ferry ride across the main land. Here is one fun thing that we, Penanites can do during our free time with our family. It was a fast ride as the ferry went like a speed boat.

      Tim and Emily were pretty excited when they heard we are going for a ferry ride. Anyway, anything that is done outside of the house, pretty much excite them. We drove on to the ferry and went up to the upper deck for a nice view. Tim was excited and went up the steep stairs. Halfway up, he felt frightened as he look down. He was screaming “mummy” all the way up. Yeap, the steep stairway is not very children friendly. Tim was reluctant to go down by himself. Daddy had piggy back them all the way down. Tough, if I were there with them alone.

      The view was a little hazy but the weather was not that hot. We got a nice breeze and a great view. Emily was enjoying her Cheezels with Tim at the upper deck. It was a good ride.

      Total Cost the Ride: A pack of Cheezels and the ride is free.

      By the way, the ferry was not very well maintained. I saw a lot of rusty areas on the ferry. I couldn’t find any life jackets anywhere too. It is just danger waiting to happen. If disaster happens, then the govt will look at the problem. If you ever go on a ferry, take some floats with you.

    4. I’m hoping to make a trip to Penang with hubby, the kids and my mum. I’ll keep this in mind and take the ferry instead of the bridge.
