Hap-Penang: The Cruise

:Reminder:
Hap-Penang is a specially-created term for Pulau Pinang that means "the happening Penang" in Azham Vosovic's dictionary ;)

Click here for Part 2 of my Penang trip.


We had our late lunch at Batu Ferringhi and stroll around the beach for a while. The beach is wonderful and I felt like taking a swim but too bad I was not in a proper attire. 


Suddenly it was time for all of us to leave the island and headed to the mainland. I drove back to the city and in less than half an hour we managed to park ourselves inside THE CRUISE. 


Oh yeah, we were on the upper deck of the ferry and the last on the line actually. Alhamdulillah that there was a spot for my dad's car on the ferry so once the ferry started moving we all went out to enjoy the breeze.


For those out there who have not been to Pulau Pinang yet, there will be NO CHARGE if you take the ferry from the island to the mainland. However, each car will be charged RM 7.70 if you choose to travel from the mainland to the island (different charges will apply on different types of vehicle).


However, the charge is RM 7.00 for each car if you use Jambatan Pulau Pinang to the island part of Pulau Pinang. To Touch&Go users who bought their cards in Penang, you will be charged only RM 5.50 if you travel via the bridge to the island; I have tested this theory and it is proven true! My dad told me this secret but those who bought their T&G out of Penang, the charge is still RM 7.00, right Penangites?


What I love about the ferry is that we can walk around it, and see the lower deck plus there are toilets on it, so no worries. This is certainly another chance for all of you to view Pulau Pinang in a different perspective, on a CRUISE!


Pulau Pinang

Insyaallah next time, I want to sail with Star Cruise Libra from Penang to open seas on one night (from 6 PM-10 AM) because it is only RM 150 per pax with a cabin! For no cabin, it is only RM 110 with dinner and breakfast included on the ship. You guys and girls can go shopping, swimming in the pool, relax in the jacuzzi, watch movies in its own cinema or probably just enjoying the breeze of the sea and wait for sunrise the next morning, cool right!


I think that marks the end of my Penang trip this time and I am so thankful to Allah for giving me the chance to go on a short vacation before my new semester starts. Our final examination result is going to be announced soon so I hope that all of you can pray for the best of it. Insyaallah, I have struggled enough and put my greatest effort for every paper so hopefully the result will turn out well, AMIN!
