Super Star Gemini (Star Cruises) to PENANG!

Part 2 of Star Cruises Trip 2008 with Superstar Gemini (SSG).

The moment I opened my eyes in the morning, I saw the scene of Penang buildings/ town from far, especially after mom gave us wake up call! We quickly prepared ourselves and waiting for the Ship to depart.


- Penang Bridge -

The Ship departed with a distance from Penang Pier, we waited for a while for the famous ferry of Penang (that everyone must try) to get closer to the ship and one by one of us got our seat on it and went to the pier and continue with the exploration in Penang.


- Penang City -

Getting closet to the pier and upon arrival, there were photo shoot for every guest of SSG and it was actually for sale before the end of the whole trip. ;) Further more, we catered a van for 5 of us to explore Penang. :)

Here's the destination that we visited in Penang :-



- The temple of the Largest Sleeping God of Penang -

It was the first temple/ destination that the Driver brought us to. If I'm not mistaken, it was actually not the first time i went to Penang and it reminded me with the blurry childhood memory that I could remember bits by bits.


- The Sleeping God and the Largest one -

Bear in mind that we should not wear any caps/ hats when entering the temple. It is to show the RESPECT towards the God.

Next, we proceeded ourselves to another place. ;)


- Wat Chaiyamangalaran (Thai Buddhist Temple) -


- Burmese Buddhist Temple -


Complete with morning temples visiting. :)


- Penang Coffee -

Beside visiting temples, the Driver did brought us purchase some local coffee too.


- Penang Coffees -

Various coffees for sale and they tasted GOOD! Each of us bought a few packages back home and distributed among family and friends.


- Kek Lok Si (极乐寺) -

Located at the highest hill at Penang. A very beautiful one.


- Koi Fishes -

Various colours for us to admire.


- The Beautiful City Scene of Penang -


- Snake Temple -

I did some stunt in there. :P From what I have understood, the amount of snakes have been reduced drastically compared with years before. And those snakes in there, eat eggs as their daily meals and NOT MEAT = IT'S VEGETARIANS!


- Photo shooting with Snakes -

I was surprised when I actually holding phython on my hand and two smaller one on my head as head gear. (lol) My mom was looking at me and she just went off without staying any longer. :P And said.... "My Gosh, you are so daring!" And after that, she don't wanna walk near to me. -_-

After visited a few places in Penang, we went to the famous local mall for a walk too. :)

That's all for Penang trip and it's a very short post (I know) for the day. 

The next place/ country - THAILAND!

Good day and happy working! :)

  1. Great pictorial travel report, I wish I have a lot of time and $ to travel.

    BTW, I like the first pic - it shows vastness of the cruise ship and there's a sense of location with the bridge on the horizon.

    Another one is the city scene of Penang.
