we missed the bus to penang.
I'll spare the stupid details, but in the end they stopped the bus at the shah alam terminal and we had to take a taxi there...two taxies because there was five of us. :(
there were loads of rest stops, and finally before my eyes became glued to the window we arrived in penang Sg. Nibong terminal whichis on the island by the way.
and get this, at that BUS bloody TERMINAL , we couldnt get any buses that were going to mcAllister road, where YMCA was, so we jumped into TWO taxis again and coughed up ten ringgit each AGAIN, to send us there..baah...
after checking in, and extending our stay to thursday, we all headed out in search of food. bryan had eaten in Gurney, so we all went to eat in gurney. getting there was a minor headache. KOMTAR? what the hell was tht!?!?.(main bus terminal apparently) take a bus there first, then get on any bus that takes us to Gurney
