Penang is a pretty small and cozy place. There’re only so many places of attraction around; even less that are kids friendly.
We try to bring the kids out as often as possible for the obvious reason; kids like to play. But then going to the mall time and again does not really cut it. It is still somewhat restricted in term of things they can see. We favor outdoor activities more.
Samuel has been to most part of Penang, Alaina has not. So we are making our rounds again for the girl. Samuel, of course certainly does not mind visiting places that he has been before; in fact, he welcomes it.
We went to Butterfly Farm a few weeks ago.
The garden did not change much but the indoor gallery has been expanded with much more exhibits.
Samuel appreciates the place more now that he understands biodiversity better.
For Alaina though….
she’s just in for some plain ‘ol fun
and opportunity to practice her new found skill…. walkin’.
We went indoor when it poured momentarily
But roamed out again when the rain stopped.
The butterflies must have like the cool damp.
They suddenly flocked out by the dozens.
The indoor gallery is as interesting as the outdoor garden….. Samuel enjoyed himself heaps.
After we finished touring Butterfly Farm, we drove down a bit to the Tripocal Spice Garden, to the Tree Monkey Restaurant again, this time for lunch.
And this time since the sky was clear; we got to sit at the patio and enjoyed the sea breeze ….
Ah! such a serene sight.
Food was not too suitable for kids though; they serve Thai Fusion. Then, as always we had backup as we packed some food from breakfast earlier : )
