so many temples

I doubted ><

This temple is full of stair cases
The stair cases are very small in sizes
Thus, it's very hard for those who have big feet size to walk on it
Not a problem for me at all though LOL!!!
We have took many funny and nice pics here
But too bad.... the pics are gone =(

Nice pic

My first Penang trip with Mei Kawada

Don't be surprise to see a Japanese name in my entry title. Hehe, this is all because I'm going for a trip to Penang with Hwan and his family AND a Japanese young girl, Mei. She's actually here for the student exchange programme. Hwan's sis, Michelle will be going to Japan next year in return. Argh, JAPAN!!! *Envious*

Alright, before we started our trip to Penang, we decided to bring her to KLCC SkyBridge. It's a must, especially for tourist. Click here to check out for the first time I was there, alone. We went there early in the morning to get the tickets. Unfortunately, there're just too many foreign tourists queueing up(since it's winter break now). We had no choice but to postpone it as we're going to Penang in noon, we don't want it to be too hurry.

Failed to get tickets for SkyBridge
Went for a walk at KLCC park instead
Me, wearing both of our ring-necklace ^^

Marry me Juliet♥ Will you marry me? ♥
Hwan spotted a ring on the floor

RingWe decided to put it back on the floor
Who knows the owner might return and look for it right?
It might not be some kind of expensive ring

but perhaps a ring full of valuable memory

*I know I'm thinking too much LOL*

KLCC ParkPark in the city
So nice to jog here early in the morning

Commit suicideHwan~ trying to commit suicide
Hmm but before doing so,
please let me hold that RotiBoy for you okay?

That's our snacks on the way to Penang later

Kuan Yin, Goddess of MercyI used to kneel down to get the water from Goddess Kuan Yin
which dispenses water from her jar when I was young
But I'm upset to see it's under renovation
Worse still, I don't think it's really under renovation
It's full of spider web that I think it just got abandoned =(
