Pedal towards Live Heritage

Hello awesome peeps! 

Sorry for the one month delay cos of the stupid and slow internet connection here at Butterworth.
The whole condo was having this problem almost for the last whole month, especially at night. 
Of course for a frequent online user like me sure can not stand the stupiak connection!!!!!!! =.=
Turned off to blog last few weeks ago.

But thank God Ah Boy (my batch mate) found an charity event for us to kill our time! :D
It is an cycling event at Penang Island in conjunction with 4th Anniversary George Town UNESCO World Heritage Site celebration. 

*LOL i thought George Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site since a decade ago, buay paiseh me*

The event's theme is "Pedal towards Live Heritage".  :)

AHAAAAAAAAA i love cycling, even though i had a hard time cycling at Pondicherry in India last 3 years ago. LOL
Very unstable cycling and i kept falling down. :P

But still i love it! I immediately agreed to it when Hooi Thang invited me. 

Ah Boy helped us to make the payment, booked the bicycles and cycling helmet for us.
We gathered last Friday at Padang Kota Lama at 7.30pm for briefing and the starting point for the cycling .

[We took our bicycles and helmets, and cycled to Padang Kota Lama. p/s: look at the boss who is talking over the phone! XD]

I can tell you, cycling at Penang roads are AWESOME.
I never cycle around the town especially in town with lots of vehicles roaming around. Yeah it was kinda dangerous but the feeling is awesome. (Pondicherry in India has less cars on the road, so cycling at that area is more or less safer than Penang)

Haha sorry for being so sua gu (like coming out from a kampung) cos i always drive my car around! :P

At Padang Kota Lama, HOLY MAMA there are around 400 plus of people there! Mostly with their own bicycles. OMG I SO ENVY THEM! ><
The event is so cool cos everyone looked so sporty and energetic that day!

While waiting, photo taking session starts! :D

And here is my personal pictures with each one of them! :3

Haha very happy during the cycling cos my make up looked nice that day. LOL
Just kidding la, i like happening places so joining this cycling event with a bunch of friends is very exciting and enjoying too! 

Too bad Yik Ming can't cycle, i must teach her how to cycle already so she can join this type of event with us next time! :)

[This is my cycling helmet with fiery flame "HOT WHEELS" design! Love it to the max!]

[Me with messy hair >w<]

So we started to cycle at around 8pm.

Here is the route :

START → Padang Kota Lama → Jalan Tun Syed Barakbah → Lebuh Pantai → Lebuh Victoria → Gat Lebuh Melayu → Lebuh Pantai → Lebuh Gereja → Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling → Lebuh Farquhar → Lebuh Leith → Lebuh Muntri → Lorong Love → Lebuh Chulia → Lebuh Carnavon → Lebuh Buckingham → Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling → Lebuh Farquhar → Lebuh Light → Padang Kota Lama END

It looked freaking far right?

But we took only half an hour to finish the route. LOL

At the beginning it was quite tough for me to cycle as there are too many people in front of us! 
Cycling at a very slow speed is very hard and i kept falling down (almost)!

Even the uncle behind me told me "Don't panic, cycle slowly". OMG how to not panic when your bicycle is not stable at all??? =.=

But after awhile my cycling was ok cos not many people in front of us, and thank God Isaac was always beside me while cycling. LOL thanks a lot Isaac for being so nice! *Although my cycling is so sucky*

The night scenery at George Town was beautiful. Enjoying the night view while cycling is one of best experience ever. The weather was nice, the wind was cooling and the traffic was ok. Perfect night for cycling.

Too bad can't take pictures! The night view was very captivating! Great for pictures but oh well... >.<

On the other hand, we found many small stalls or food shops with yummy food while cycling! That is the best part during cycling! Haha really no lies! Almost all the road that i mentioned above have at least one or two shops with a lot of people lining out side for dinner! OMG we also can smell those food ok? 

There are many different cuisines to choose from and the food looks yummy! LOL all we think about is food. XDDD

Must really go and try out all these food stalls or shop next time! :)))

So at the end we reached Padang Kota Lama after half an hour. The cycling experience was cool. I love it! :)

Haha the organizers also held a lucky draw event after that.
Li Herng told us he was feeling luckay that day. Haha so Hooi Thang and i kept hoping him getting the lucky draw prizes that he doesn't want! :P

Initially his number was announced and we thought he got movie tickets that he doesn't want!
OMG unexpectedly he got a high tea coupon at Strawberry Hill worth RM160!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cannot tahan you lor AH PEK!!!!!!!!!!!!! SO LUCKY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TT^TT

Hooi Thang and me got a RM50 voucher at a boutique shop in Penang island. But we wanted the microwave oven! T^T
Nevermind la, at least our numbers are announced during the lucky draw. :)
We went to eat supper after that and went home around 11.30pm.

It was a irreplaceable experience for me. LOL i even fell down ok! TwT
If there is any charity event like this, for sure i will join again! Way to go Penang! :)))

Getting a cool metallic pink bicycle is on my things-to-do list right now. HOHOHO.  :)

More updates coming soon and stay tuned! :D
Have a great day ahead!

*Special thanks to Rachel for the great pictures! Love ya! <3 *
