Impromptu Trip To Simpang Ampat, Penang.

My friends have been talking of making a one day trip on Tuesday but nothing was decided until Monday night. Thinking that the trip will not take place, I booked an appointment with my hairdresser for Tuesday evening. Just after I have booked the appointment, a message came through to inform that the trip was confirmed. We were to meet in a friend's house at 10 am next morning (Tuesday). I decided not to cancel my appointment with the hairdresser, hoping I will be back on time because I badly needed a haircut.
Praise the Lord! It was a bright and beautiful morning.
We started our day trip at about 10.30 am. 
Initially, our plan was to go south to Genting Highlands. Anticipating heavy traffic and traffic jams due to the exodus of holiday makers after the long weekends, we decided to go north to Simpang Ampat.
 On our earlier to Penang on the 10th June, we stopped at Simpang Ampat to enjoy the fresh seafood. Little did I know that 15 days later, I was back here again with my friends.
This time, we were taken to another seafood restaurant, which is a bit further from the previous place we went to. 
Simpang Ampat is a small town known for its reasonably priced fresh seafood. You can find many seafood restaurants here.
Our friend drove us to the jetty and Makanan Laut Jeti or Jetty Seafood is the place she wanted to recommend to us. It is located right next to the jetty. 
My friends hurrying to find some shade from the hot midday sun.
Three beauties in the cool shade while the camera person under the hot sun. Lol!
We were hungry by now and looking forward to taste the fresh yummy seafood.
One is choosing a table while the rest busy taking snapshots of the surrounding.
I will be posting the food photos in tomorrow's post.

ferry and the rest taken in Penang island to share with you.

Linking to Good Fences.

For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil.

Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith

and pierced themselves with many griefs.
