On the 15th day of July, 2011, my family and I went to Penang. Pak Cik Burhan went there with us too. We went there for the SEMINAR MENDAULATKAN ISLAM –AGAMA NEGARA (SEMAIAN). The seminar took place at the Dewan Dato’ Ahmad Badawi in Butterworth, Penang.
We left our house at around 9.10 am in the morning. It was a four hours drive to Penang. On the way, I saw lots of beautiful and interesting things. I spotted three scarecrows standing in a cornfield on a hill slope!
We stopped at a restaurant named Restoran Aur Gading for lunch. The restaurant was located by the Sungai Dua river. There were people fishing at the river. My parents and Pak Cik Burhan had the Penang’s famous food, ‘Mi Udang’ for lunch. My sisters and I had fried flat noodle while my little brother had flat noodle soup.
After we lunch, we went to the Palm Inn Hotel. The Palm Inn Hotel was located on the opposite side of the Dewan Dato’ Ahmad Badawi in Butterworth.
In the evening went to another restaurant in Sungai Dua named Aziz Mee Pak Ngah Sg2 for dinner. My parents had ‘Mi Udang’ again. My mother prefers the ‘Mi Udang’ at the Restoran Aur Gading. My sisters and I had Char Kuay Teow. Char Kuay Teow is also one of the Penang’s famous food. I really love the Char Kuay Teow. It was delicious.
On the other side of the restaurant was a huge paddy field. The sun was beginning to set when we left and it caused the clouds to look reddish. The combination of the purplish sky with the red clouds and a green, green paddy field formed a remarkably beautiful scenery.
Later in the night, at around 10.30 pm, we heard the sound of fireworks. We looked through the windows in our room and found out that there was a fireworks display. It had been a splendid day. I was very excited to see the scarecrows because it was the first time I had ever seen a real-life scarecrow in Malaysia!
