Discover Penang under ECO Tours Part 1

Penang National Park and Pen Mutiara Restaurant

Never stop to traveling to find something new. Last year, I visit Tioman Island and Malacca in the raining season. I feel so excited during my short holiday in Malaysia. I do not know, Malaysia county has many parts to visit. I am so lucky when I get invitation to attend ECO Family Trip Penang 2018. I would love thank you to Malaysia Tourism Government and all sponsor in this wonderful event. It was my first time I visited Penang and I was so excited to look around this places.

The meeting poin was in changi airport Singapore to take flight to Kuala Lumpur and continue to Penang by flight. In the aiport I met Mr Toni (johorkaki), Mr Mike (writer andphotographer) and Mr Edi (Director Magazine in Batam). Ah and also the nice and friendly woman Ms Rozana who help us in the airport and make sure we were flight in time. Thank You so much to invite me and I wish it was not the first and the last hihihi.

I went to Malaysia by Malaysia airlines and I enjoyed my trip on the flight. Nice seat and nice peanut. I get double packs peanut. Thanks to Ms flight attendant who service us with lovely smile. Singapore to Malaysia need around an hour. Then, we arrived with safe in Kuala Lumpur airport. We continued to other flight, before getting to other flight. We have to get stamp in custom airport. O.K queue and finally I get it with simple way.

Kuala Lumpur to Penang, I still get same flight Malaysia airlines but the flight was more small. The weater was not so bad. Suddenly the nice weather become cloudy (overcast) and I get little airsickness and it was my first time I felt like that. It was not so bad only 15 minutes I should close my eyes and I also eaten a lot of peanut to make my dizzy gone so fast.

Short story, I arrived in Penang airport, duration flight Kuala Lumpur to Penang around 50 minutes. We taken our suitcase and go to outside. Where was two people already wait us there. I just remember Mr Paul Ng, our tour guide in this ECO Fam Trip Penang, Kedah and Kuala Lumpur. Our hotel was not so far from Penang Airport. The participants group would stay in Olive Tree Hotel.

The hotel was very nice, my friends and I should registration first and give my passport to get my identity. Then I get the key. Let’s rest for a while and shower before opening the Eco Fam Trip 2018 in 7 lounge in the second  floors. When I arrived there, some participants already in this room and we chitchat for awhile before the opening was started.

I could say Olive Tree Hotel was nice hotel and modern with the system Eco hotel. I love it. The food in the Seven (7) Lounge also cute. I tried some traditional snack and also yummy food. Thank you so much to host us with nice and comfortable bed. Do you want to know more about  Olive Tree Hotel? You can read on my blog here.

Morning time was coming so fast then I realize. Any body knew when holiday time was going fast then when we were working behind the desk. I took shower and then prepare myself to eat breakfast because eat food was very important to fill energy.

The first day, participants including me visited National Park Penang. This located in Teluk Bahang. It was need around an hour from our stay in Olive Tree hotel. No worry, the way to went there so lovely. My heavy eyes became so fresh. We went to Penang National Park and get little useful information about this area.

I went to Turtle beach and look around this area. More info about Penang National Park, you can read on here and plus in Bahasa Indonesia of course all different style and  it would make you want to visit this area. We get our lunch in here, simple buffet but nice food. There was fishes, vegetable and fruits. Eating and talking were nice because I have new friends.

We were not just get fun but we also get a lot of information about turtles. So lovely and I love to get that information. This place is beautiful places for human and turtles because special sands. We were also doing Eco conservation program. Do you want to know what it is? True! We were tree planting (Scavelea Taccadda) activity in turtles beach and we wish turtles will exist forever and the turtles circle life never end. 

We could not stay forever in the turtle beaches even this place so tempting to stay there, because it was exist to camp area. I would love to camp there one day and see and hike in the forest in  Penang National Park.

Let’s back to the city to grab dinner hihihi. Pen Mutiara Restaurant is located at Batu Maung. Where this restaurant serves traditional food of Malay. When we were arrived, we were not waiting so long time and the waiters put some foods. This foods was so smell good and make some people water mouth want to eat them. In this Pen Mutiara Restaurant I get menu curry fish, spicy deep-fried fish, egg, pickles fruits and some yummy food. Let’s eating all them. I was sorry I can not take many photos of this menu because my phone was off because low bath to much taken photos in the turtle beaches.  Belly full already and let’s get rest to other adventure tomorrow.
