You know how we always say that people take things for granted just because some things are considered easily accessible to them? For example, Ipoh people don’t really fancy pomelos that much and Klang Valley residents don’t dig Ikea and all that jazz?
Well, we’re just as guilty.. 😛 and I will tell you why.
Despite living in Penang for so many years now, we have NEVER taken the kids on a ferry ride. The bridge has always been the easier and more convenient option for us. However, during the past school holidays, since we had not planned on travelling anywhere, we decided to take the kids for an adventure on the ferry.
They were excited to say the least, and kept asking us when we were gonna reach the ferry terminal. We had a few errands to run before that, you see…
The queue to board the ferry wasn’t long so we were relieved, but you know kids, they get really impatient…
“When are we getting on the ferry, Daddy?”
“Hey Daddy, why are those motorbikes cutting queue?”
“Why is the ferry not here yet?”
“I wonder how many vehicles can go on the ferry?!”
Finally, after about 10-15 minutes of waiting, we boarded the ferry. The kids were super excited!
Here are a few shots I managed to take while ensuring the kids stayed safe while catching a glimpse of the sea. Pete had to stay in his car, because for some reason, his car alarm would sound as the ferry rocked to and fro.
It was a fun trip for us all. We drove to Sunway Carnival Mall and had our dinner there before heading for home…this time, we used the bridge 😛
