The eve of Merdeka was so much fun. My pals and I celebrated it at Upper Penang Road, rotating from one place to another. When we got to Momo, it pained me to see that free food was being offered there – buffet style. You know why it irks me so much? This is simply because I had my dinner in Babylon just few minutes before I got there! And the food there costs me a bomb! Whadda hell? =P btw, the food there was fab nonetheless. We had fun taking piccies too!
That’s us in Babylon restaurant in UPR
Pepsi ad anyone? We charge a pair of Choo’s! =P
The waiters were really friendly and it just made us feel right at home! Many expatriates got along with them really well too. Somehow, I like that place, the ambience is just soothing and romantic in the heart of Penang. Perfect for a date! Yes, I would recommend. =)
Here we are by the fountain, strategically placed outside Momo
3 chicks as an ornament by the fountain – you can look, but you can’t touch =)
Finally, they came! It was expected though, as Merdeka traffic jams are known to pose as hindrance to any desired destination; the usual. We partied the countdown away
And before you know it, Merdeka-clad Mat Rempits thronged the streets with their convoys and blasting their honks throughout. We too, joined the fun and pumped up the night atmosphere with our music and “Merdeka!” hollers. Pity though, we hadn’t had any flags to wave. =(
Had a ball of a time this Merdeka year. Happy 50th, my beloved homeland.
