Dear Gabby,

Yesterday after work, 2 of my housemates-colleagues and I went to the Island with no plans in mind but to de-stress. We ate dinner at one of our default fast foods here, what else but KFC (wala kasing Jollibee e!) then after I dunked my fork and knife at those chunky crispy Original-recipe chix, we roamed around the newly opened (the launch was like 2 days ago) 1st Avenue Mall in Georgetown, Pulau Pinang.

It reminded me of Gateway and Glorietta where we used to stroll like mall-rats before I went here.  The smell of newly painted interiors wafted as we enter 1st Avenue; its strong air conditioning was such a welcoming stimulus amidst the Pinas-like humidity of Penang.

A lot of stores and shops are still yet to open. Nonetheless, the Parkson Department Store, similar to Rustan’s back home has an on-going sale that will end tomorrow, Sunday but will have another Mega Sale on December according to the sale staff.

I bought an extra pillow (my 6th actually)  for you to use here as you and your mom arrive at exactly 13 days from now (countdown never stops!)

I promise, I’ll take you there at 1st Avenue on your first Monday here. *naka-ready na ang itineraries, anak!*

I want you and your mom to view a piece of Pulau Pinang at dusk from the 1st Avenue Mall’s Level 8 viewing deck called Cloud 8…

Anyone will have a different impression of Penang when viewed from the top…

I did not take pictures inside the mall as there’s nothing new to me.

I have to admit that malls in Pinas are so much better and bigger (Miss ko na din Greenbelt, Trinoma and Bonifacio High Street-Serendra) than what we have here in this part of Malaysia nevertheless, their edge over the rest of the malls there are the massive “buy-me-take-me-home” discounts ranging from 50 to as huge as 70 –80% off! Saya dito, Anak kung may extra budget nga lang sana lagi, hehehe..

So, it’s a date at 1st Avenue on December 13.  See you & your mom here on December 11th.

I love you, Gabby!

-Tatay-doc. 😀
