For the first time in our entire dating history, we decided to throw our mothers together.
For four full days, from KL to Hatyai to Penang and all the way back to KL, they had to sit together in the car, walk together in the sun & under the moonlight, eat the same food, sleep in the same room and on top of all that, deal with the two monkeys that are their son & daughter.
Our first meal on the road trip was Ipoh’s famous steamed chicken, sprouts and kueh teow noodles for lunch. DELICIOUS! I could eat Ipoh kuehteow everyday.
# – With my mom.
# – With his mom.
It was a great holiday. I can’t believe it took us this long to do something like this. Holidaying with our moms is awesome cause we get to be children and get doted over.
Like you know, when we went swimming, there’s always someone who would pass us towels and sunblock. Or when we’re out exploring, someone’s always got an extra bottle of water or someone’s always got an awesome hat that I could borrow to hide from the hot sun. I LOVE IT!
# – My mom’s incredible hat that kept me in the shade.
Like how we could also snack like monsters and make a mess in their room till late at night before scooting off to our clean hotel room to sleep :P
# – In moms’ room, eating on their beds /evil laughter.
I don’t know if it’s holiday for our momsies, but it’s definitely a kickass holiday for us…hehehehhehe.

# – Mom taking pictures of floating market.

It was our first time seeing the floating market in Hatyai. It was pretty impressive actually. Loads of food and touristy stuff but most things go for only 20Baht. Cheap and fun!
# – On the bridge to the floating market.
There’s this fella in Hatyai that sells clothes who was particularly attached to Gareth. He kept shoving a clothes hanger into G’s crotch, while threatening G to buy clothes from him.
# – G looking far too happy with a clothes hanger up his…
And when he refused to buy anything, he just hugged G, very tightly.
# – Affectionate.
We shopped quite a lot. My mom basically wiped out the pet section in Tesco Lotus. The dog beds were ridiculously cheap, like 370Baht for a mid size one! Where to find?? We got cashew nuts, dried fruits, booze, the usual suspects.
G also bought me a set of 10 piece Anolon saucepans and pans with some kind of awesome copper base and oven safe up to 260 degrees celcius. My oven doesn’t even go up that high! <3 Sorry, housewife talk overloads :P # - Car so full with shopping until back window completely blocked out.
From Hatyai, we drove down to Penang for an overnight stay. There was an episode where someone went hysterical because she almost couldn’t hold her pee anymore while getting stuck in a traffic jam in Penang.
# – Stuck in crazy jam for over an hour to see this.
Of course, that person was me cause I have an abnormally small bladder. I had to endure my mom watching over me while I peed behind someone’s car. Pee patch was so massive on the ground she had to skip away from it, while I was STILL pissing T_T
Anyway, like we always do in Penang, we ate too much and still ended up wishing we could eat more. We left Penang on a ferry, the perfect ending to our holiday.
# – On the upper deck of a ferry back to mainland.
I shall end this post with a picture of a random buffalo at a petrol station in Penang. It had really saggy, large testicles.
Have a good weekend, peep!
