Day 1
Random registration for the Penang Bridge International Marathon and there we went to Penang Island.
It was my final retreat in 2012 before my piling assignments, competition deadlines which followed by final exam.

The traffic was bad when we reached Georgetown.
Runners were invading Penang I guess.
Start scouting for food upon settling down at Penang to feed our growling stomach!
 our OOTD! :D
(we look like tourists from Indonesiaa.. xD)

 B&B~!

 Yeah we know it's not 1 of the famous food at Penang but who cares when one is hungry?

After that, we departed to collect our Runner's Pack.
It was like amazing race that we kept searching on the map, turning round & round in Georgetown to get to the Gurney Plaza.
Then realising we went to the wrong place instead.
Yesh, the race pack collection was at Queensbay Mall!

 
with complimentary LED star in the race pack
(just kidding :P)

Not to forget to meet my long-lost old friend: KHeng over there :D

We headed to the seafood seaside village to have our dinner.
It was a belated birthday celebration for me too, they said.



Thanks for the treat! ♥
