Baby Updates: 38 weeks
So, it's 2 more weeks to the due date but we're hoping baby will be born sooner because of baby's big size.

Angie and I were not able to join them for the whole time but we did manage to meet them at the reception area of the Batu Maung War Museum before heading for a durian party in the afternoon. In the evening, we went up Penang Hill for steamboat dinner at the Bellevue Hotel.

The steamed rice turned out to be quite tasty and the serving is really generous. The stall also serves steamed spare ribs rice as well as steamed salted fish rice. They only open Mondays to Fridays.

Passing by Perlis
When we did finally stop, we had arrived in Kangar and it was lunch time. We had roasted and barbecue pork rice at OK Restaurant near the Malaysia Hotel. After lunch, we drove around town before visiting other places.
The places we visited: Padang Besar, Chuping sugar cane plantation, Tasik Melati, Bukit Kubu Recreational Park, and Kuala Perlis.

We had initially planned to stay the night but found it quite unnecessary once we got there. All in all, the trip took about 10 hours including travelling time. The trip was made more 'exciting' and 'dangerous' when we realised halfway that our car tyres were extremely worn out! We got them changed today.

Our 3rd Anniversary

Lunch was a picnic at Batu Ferringhi. The weather was good and we managed to find a shade to enjoy our tuna sandwich.

For dinner, we checked out TGI Friday's. We sampled their loaded potato skin for the appetizer and our main course was the seafood platter and Jack Daniel's Chicken & Shrimp. We also tried their smoothies (Holiday Isle and Hawaiian Surfer). Food was good - better than expected. Between meals we simply lazed about having a relaxing time enjoying each other's company.

The highlight of the day, as always, was the lighting of our Unity Candle for our Anniversary Prayer.
