I haven't been to penang for years, Feb 1992 took my wife on her first trip outside Thailand, she fell in love with Indian food which sealed the deal as far as I was concerned. Stayed at the Hotel Mingood, my next door neighbour in London was from penang, the Ong family who have a temple which is opposite Komtar. Has his picture in it, he was Malaysian ambassador to Hong Kong in his earlier days, his wife was HK society and used to mesmorise me with tails of the Orient in the 1930's.

We've just decided on a weekend in penang for our wedding anniversary this year!!!.....Cheers Smarm-mite

It was great seeing photos of places where I been before. Marmite definately tapped into nicer beer bars than I did. He has a sixth sense for pints of decent import brew. Penang is great for visa runs because you don't have to mess around with embassies. Most hotels will get the visa on your behalf while you travel around the area playing. My budget was quite different. I think I sprung for 150 baht per night rooms in a seedy Chinese district. I ate lunch for 40 baht per day at Indian restaurants. Oh yeah, that snake temple was worth a visit. I am sure that the vipers are still around.

Well I have just booked me flights to Penang for early next month, I think I shall be staying 4 nights, first night high end 1,000baht a nite hotel, second nite low end scummy back packers hotel, then obviously in great need of a shower I shall book into a hotel with hot water but not as high end as the first one, maybe I should mention that I will not wash my wedding tackle in cold water thats why I need to alternate hotels to keep the old one eyed beast a bit clean just in case I meet a nice young willing lady, then probably back to another low end dirty horrid cockroach infested back packer place, I really cant believe how much I am looking forward to the cheap indian food actually

I don't think there are any women in Penang - I only saw ladyboys and old men.

Like I said - sexual repression is the name of the game there.

Marmers showed me a great time. A quick recap. Met up at his penthouse, MRT to Lumpini for some Bass beer which was not there so we drank some German stuff instead. Off to the Barbicon on Thaniya for a great meal, and a couple pints of Speckled Hen. On to Patpong to watch some women pole dance. Then finished off the night on 33 with some pool and lady talk. Slept in his spare bedroom and his girlfriend was kind enough to give me a ride back to Don Muang.

Got home and found out the wife had lied and put the kids in a Nazi Buddhist camp and did not stay with them.

So tomorrow I am going to blow up the temple they are in. If you dont see me for a day or two, check the jails and prisons as I am dead serious.

AO, sounds more like you should be shooting the misses instead of blowing up the temple. What was she doing while the cat was away?

The visa sounds a little expensive. A mate got one of the 9 month, tripple entry types down there about 6 weeks ago, for 300 RM.

As it says in the OP, I paid someone to get it for me, hence the extra 35RM. Is it that difficult to work out?

Its often much easier to use an agent in Penang. You dont have to hang at the embassy at all.

I didn't use an agent and it wasn't any hassle at all - just about 20 mins at the consulate (2 times).

I got a taxi there and back twice (from Chulia st) - it was 12 Ringgit for each trip - thus a total of 48 Ringgit, so the agent would be cheaper.

I prefer doing these things myself though.

It's hardly running around - I find it interesting going to embassies etc....the consulate in Penang was quite shabby really.

When I used an agent it was 20MR for his troubles + 200MR for the non-B - sorted.

My agent isn't the cheapest, but he's organised and got it done.

Where did you get that figure from?

Patrick charged 35RM to do the visa, as opposed to another agent who charges 20RM.

All our paperwork was completed in advance and we got everything sorted out a day quicker than if I had done it myself as I wouldn't have got to the Embassy on time after arriving from BKK.

Anyway, for all those youngish men who are going to Penang..

I was on another forum talking about this and that, and a Dutch guy sent me a PM saying that would I be interested in fucking his 36 yo Indian wife!! He said she needed lots of sex and really wanted fucks with expats. And also that two guys would be even better, did I have any friends.

I played along for a bit, and he sent me some pics of her; not appalling, although still with clothes on.

SO, if anyone is going to Penang for a visa, and would like a side-dish, I can let you have his email.

Maybe I can put a copy of his vulgar replies here?

Hell, I don't have to do the Penang trips anymore but sounds like it would be different from any of the other trips that I went to down there.
