Yesterday, I met up with Chris and Andres along with their host Alex and his friends. It was a nice evening catching up and Alex was kind enough to invite me to stay at his place along with the others. I had the room for the night so decided to go there tomorrow (which is today).

I woke up at the stroke of 7, cursing why I can’t sleep a little more. But hey, I was up and walked around little India and got myself a B’fast of Pongal and Vadai and started off on my bike. The ride was nice going through the historical buildings and sites followed by high rise residential housing. This is very different from the Penang I remember from a decade ago.

I went through the expensive neighborhood of gurney road and along the beaches to Alex’s place. It was nice to meet him again and the rest of the day was spent bumming in his house and hanging out in a small Pau shop near by.

In the evening, Alex and his friends invited us to the beach at Batu ferringi, a popular spot for people to hang out. A lovely sunset later, we got some good grub and headed back. Well that’s day 2 of bumming done. Hopefully, just two more!
