2016 family outing & Jamie Loh’s wedding

Well, it’s festive season again. Last year our family outing was in Bali. As for this year, coincidently, Jamie Loh was getting married on the eve of Christmas, so we decided the whole family would attend the wedding and had our get together in Penang.

Arrived at Penang International Airport at around 9.20 am. Our hired driver was there to receive us. Soon we were on our way to Penang Road for the famous Penang Road Teochew Cendul and laksa. On the way, we picked up some relatives from Australia,  Ivan, Ivy and Alice who were in Penang too for their holidays.

Currently very popular smoke biscuits among youths.
Liquid nitrogen (BP -196 degree C) is bubbled into biscuits. When biscuits are taken out from liquid nitrogen, it turns into vapour giving a sensation of smoke coming out of the biscuits. Mind you, be careful when handling liquid nitrogen as it may cause frostbite!

At around 2.30 pm, we crossed over to Seberang Jaya to check into Light Hotel. We would be attending Jamie’s wedding on the next day at the restaurant near the hotel.
