Grouper and Bokchoy with Noodles

Summer Vacation 2019, Day 4 of 7.

In Penang, on a day excursion.  Via Royal Caribbean’s Voyager of the Seas.  Our first cruise.  Departed Monday from Singapore, stopping in Penang (Malaysia) today and Phuket (Thailand) tomorrow, returning to Singapore on Friday.

I should’ve ordered the Ultimate Bloody Mary.


Room service for breakfast – a lifelong dream for my father.  Alas, after 74 years of waiting, the quality of the food shattered the fantasy.


To conclude a ho-hum taxi tour of town – the Upside Museum was kind cool, if only for the photos – we had dinner at a hum-drum restaurant recommended by the taxi driver – actually not too bad, just expected more from my first dinner in this famous food city.

Still, Penang isn’t a place that I would’ve gone out of my way to visit on its own, so I was glad for a quick peek as part of the package.

Upon return to the boat, another shot at late-night room service: Cheesecake (3.0), Spicy Wings (1.5), Grilled Salmon (2.5), Hot Dog (2.5), Chicken Tenders (2.25) – a bit better than last night, but not worth the calories.
