Back from Penang

Hi there, I'm back from Penang! Couldn't say the bus seat was enjoyable. The constant bumping made my neck ache. And it turned out that I'm riding the new transit to the top of Penang Hill, which is something that looks like this...

instead of the quaint little train I originally imagined...

...but at least the new train is air-conditioned and moves faster.

Next, we went to the Logos Hope, a very huge ship with many handsome and pretty crews / foreigners who, I suspect are all Christians doing a missionary jobs on board the ship. The entrance fee was RM 1 for every adult. I spotted some handsome Europeans (can't blame me for my special ability to spot a good-looking guy from 10 metres away, I'm a girl after all) and many welcoming, friendly crew members, especially the plump but pretty lady at the counter.

There are a lot of books, but most of them are Christian novels, which I usually avoid reading, as from past experience, I found them to be preachy and talk too much about religion. In the end, I bought only three books.
Face of Betrayal
#3: A
I've read Girl, Stolen by April Henry before, and she sure can write a good mystery. That's why I bought the first two books of Triple Threat. The dictionary is to help me translate some French words I found in Anna and The French Kiss, which I'm halfway through.

Later, at Queensbay mall, we girls had a great time shopping! I bought 3 X-Girl T-shirts for RM50. I really appreciate the unique graphic designs on certain T-shirts. Both of my sisters bought themselves a pair of B.U.M. sneakers each. My cousin, Ann, got herself a pretty cool black hat and a FAITH bracelet.

Overall, I think this trip is rather enjoyable, despite the fact that I suffered a severe headache and my neck aches like hell after getting off the bus.

Wow, a bookfair on a boat, was the boat swaying or something?

No, it's too big that you don't feel it swaying. :)
