A day's plan abandoned. We had intended to take the jeep up Penang Hill from the Botanical Gardens but the queue to enter the car park was backed up to the traffic lights, well over 1 km. So we turned and headed for the E&O hotel for a refreshing drink and the peace and quiet following which we dropped Alice and Mary-Ann off at Queensbay Mall for an afternoons shopping spree.
Actually, we were here due to a wrong turn but which for Gek and Mary-Ann, turned out to be a right turn. Durian. Alice and I left them to enjoy, only suffering when we had to let them back into the car. Terrible, lingering stink the fruit has.
So, we meet again. The museum guys and gals have done an excellent job on refurbishing the model with a super cabinet to display it in complete with spot lights. It did feel strange to be with something I had made in such place,
given that the terminal has a Peranakan theme with full scale shophouse style fronts modeled in the main departure area with real shops on the ground floor some more.
I am amazed that the museum considered the model exhibitable given the location. What to say but thank you.
