We depart from KL around 6:30 and we are using the Guthrie Highway, out from Guthrie toll toward Ipoh around 7:00 am. Traffic on that day is very smooth and reaching Ipoh at 9:00 am for our Dim Sum breakfast at Foh San restaurant, although is weekdays the crowd is still there and is almost full house but no need to wait for queue.
Mostly is elderly enjoying their early tea with a group of friend chatting, we do enjoy seing them so enjoying life with all the laughter and smile among them. Most enjoyment is the food there is tasty and more choice as those dim sum is not commonly saw here.
After breakfast, we depart from Ipoh around 9:45 am heading to Penang our main destination. On our way to Penang, we discuss whether we want to go by ferry as our first time visit is by the Penang Bridge, so we decide to take the ferry instead as i saw on paper few days back that ‘goverment plan to shutdown ferry services when the second bridge build’ not sure if it’s true.
Ferry services is very enjoying as you no need to drive and just wait for the ferry to bring you over plus you can enjoy the beautiful view as the wind breeze through. My dad’s car have chance to abroad ferry for the time..:) it took about 20 min to reach George Town. It just a waste if goverment plan to close down ferry service as it was an historical ferry service, it can be a tourism place or just let our next generation to get a feel it.
