I Spy With My Little Eye

While out shopping last weekend (yes yes, I go shopping almost every weekend), I was amazed that there were no freebies for the daddies celebrating Father’s Day.  Okay, I admit I was actually hoping there would be some free claimable stuff… they gave flowers and chocolate brownies for the moms last month, right?  So anyways, there was nothing for the fathers.  It really looked like Father’s Day had to make way for the Mega Carnival Sale, which started on June 16 2007.  Note to self: need to go to Kay-el one of these weeks for shopping… heh heh… Hubby gently *reminded* me that “Penang also can shop what…” 😛

So back to the matter of spying.  Instead of doing a full-fledged shopping last weekend, I spotted some interesting details in the malls and areas around the malls:

There…that’s a shot of the swimming pool in the newest hotel in Penang, the g Hotel….It’s located on Gurney Drive, hence the name “g”.  Yeah, they could not think of a more creative name than that.  The swimming pool area looks picturesque, no?  This picture is akin to pictures taken by the papparazi because we spotted the pool from where our car was parked in the Gurney Plaza parking lot.  I could not help myself, because the dreadful blogivitis made me take that picture….. SIGH.  I should be able to get clearer and more descriptive pictures of the hotel this weekend, because I have a lunch invite there…. woo hoo!  Can hardly wait….I’m still deciding what to wear though… but more on that later, yeah? *wink*

The next day, I spotted this in Queensbay Mall… can you guess what it is?

Entrance to a disco? ….. W R O N G!!!!




The latest fitness center? …. Nah…Guess again!




Give up?




It’s the entrance to a ……






Spankin’ new LOO! 

Yup….located on (I think) the topmost floor of Queensbay Mall, my hubby and I were surprised to discover this hip-hop designed toilet.  Entrance is free, by the way.  And yes, it is clean.  At least for now.

On another note, I went to Friday’s yesterday…yes again! for Father’s Day.  Still cannot understand why most of my friends don’t dig this place, but man, it was jam-packed!  We had that entree on the house to redeem for Daddy too … and guess what, I got another FREE sizzling fajita meal for my next visit!  Check out the pictures from the our Father’s Day celebration here.

    Chup! The G Hotel is very swanky! One night there is about Rm322 cheapest!

    The Giddy Tiger says: Really? You checked out the rates already?!

  2. chinnee says:

    Why the hotel name so weird ? Only with a “G”?
    din notice Queensmall has got this nice toilet in my last visit there.
    What is that Blogitivitis fuss about? It seems to appear everywhere on many blogs…

    The Giddy Tiger says: You might have already contracted blogivitis already – it is a fast spreading disease and has already affected a LOT of people.

  3. rinnah says:

    An invite to a brand spanking new swanky hotel is an event that calls for a new dress, yeah? Yeah!

    Hehehe… like we need an excuse to shop during the Malaysian Mega Sales…

    The Giddy Tiger says: Of course! Either a new dress or a chance to dress up! 😀

  4. may says:

    that’s some nice entrance to the loo. grand! makes pee-ing a little extra special, lol!

    if I don’t go out shopping every weekend, I’d be at home rotting to death! can’t have that happening, eh? *wink*

    The Giddy Tiger says: I know *I* felt special 😛

  5. jazzmint says:

    eh tgif new menu very nice leh…..

    The Giddy Tiger says: Did they change it recently? I only know of one menu cos they just opened in Penang, and I can’t remember what the menu looked like when I visited the 1-U one last time!

  6. Neo says:

    Aiyah… show us the inside of the loo!

    The Giddy Tiger says: Too busy admiring the view from the loo…yup, it overlooks the streets 😛

  7. zewt says:

    i am begining to feel penang is a much cooler place to stay than KL…

    but then again… starhill has got a more spanking loo… you should check it out when you’re here.

    The Giddy Tiger says: Oh, I most certainly should, but then again, I have not gone to the Bukit Bintang area for ages now.

  8. Pinkelle says:

    I’ve heard about the G! Apparently it’s quite a new funky hotel so looking forward to seeing your pictures of it! 🙂 I saw in another blog though that the pool area was a bit messy with lots of construction for the second phase. Is that true?

  9. Neo says:

    You only took pics of the entrance? take more pics and show us mar… haha.

    The Giddy Tiger says: Maybe next time?

  10. Blur Mommy says:

    wah.. entrance to loo also so cool !!! isit nice inside ar?

    The Giddy Tiger says: Nice, very nice and clean….

  11. No bikini clad leng luis at the pool? I’m not going there!

    Wah! Such a strange restroom concept. You hip hop to the loo kinda of dangerous. What if you hop too hard and can no longer hold off. Yikes!

    The Giddy Tiger says: LOL….this loo’s entrance is sloping upwards too….so you burn *some* calories while you hip hop 😛

  12. zara's mama says:

    Wah… so cool the toilet.. Stylo Myly.

    The Giddy Tiger says: Yeah, it should be one of the attractions in Penang.
