Continuation of “3 years ago: set foot on Butterworth

When we woke up that morning, he felt like he’s posting a photo in Taiping before dawn on Instagram. Here’s what he posted:

Hello, Singapore from Taiping! #RIPgodofInstantKarma

A post shared by Justin Tan Wen Cong (@justintanwencong) on

Before that, we went to Eco-Shop @ Taiping to buy supplies for the following day before we head back to Butterworth, then Singapore. We traveled around Taiping Lake Gardens. Within the vicinity, we had lunch at Taman Tasik Food Centre. After that, in the evening, we went to Restoran Matang-Yee Seng Seafood for a nice dinner. Before we reach back, we stop by at 7 Eleven Jalan Datuk Seri Kamaruddin to grab things for later.

3 years ago: set foot on Butterworth

3 years ago, our writer, Justin Tan Wen Cong has missed out Youth Day Celebrations in Pathlight School due to unforeseen circumstances, Tan Cheow Hian’s brother in law Yeoh Yen Lee passed away at age 45 after falling ill with tuberculosis. There’s no choice but to return home to Penang, Malaysia, which is way too far from Singapore.

My father’s younger brother-in-law’s apartment is located with Perai, Penang, Malaysia. Somewhere near Megamal Penang is near the KTM ETS tracks.

Originally, my phone ringtone set to… WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT SONG WAS RELEASED IN 2007 AS ONE ALBUM. It is classified. Please read our article we wrote back in 2014.

By the time we got to Taiping, it is almost sunset and we somehow got lost when we followed the GPS map… DAMN. It was so stupid.. smelly mouth of Siri.

After we ate, we’ve arrived at Leisure Home Taiping, we had to shower, wash up and sleep.

My travel diary

Day 1 (1 Jul 2014)

Today we arrived in Butterworth, Penang, Malaysia for my dad’s brother-in-law’s funeral there because of his passing caused by cancer. Two nights and three days, we traveled there by the Grassland Express Coach registered PGQ8811, we experienced the bites at the rest stop last night as my parents had the mee rebus, but I only had a ramily burger and potato wedges. By afternoon, my relatives in Malaysia introduced me to my cousin.

Day 2 (2 Jul 2014)

We woke up at about 8-9am for breakfast, then to the shop targeted at RM2. We also had a long drive in the lake in Taiping, near Zoo Taiping & Night Safari. We also went into a secret location for dinner.

Tomorrow night, we’re going back to Singapore by Grassland Express Coach from Butterworth. We had two night stay at Leisure Home Taiping. It was a awesome journey we had.
