Feeding the farm animals at Audi Dream Farm, Balik Pulau

We found out about Audi Dream Farm months ago when I saw some friends postings on going there but then, we forgot about the place until recently so we decided to take the kids there since Balqis had been bugging us to take her to the zoo. FYI, Penang tak ada zoo ye. So, Taiping is the nearest and we just been there last few months too.

Audi Dream Farm is located in Sungai Rusa, Balik Pulau, Penang. Just Waze "Audi Dream Farm" and it will take you there straight away.

For MyKad holders, the admission fee was RM 10 each for adult, RM 5 for children 3 to 12 years old and free for below 3. For animal feeding, the basket cost RM15 including several animal foods, pre-packed.

Penang Sentral, the newly opened transportation hub in Penang

Remember last time when I blogged about our little outing taking the train to Butterworth and hanging out at Penang Sentral? Well, I did not mentioned much about Penang Sentral because I think it deserves a post on its own.

Penang Sentral is the new hub for all transportation and transits in Butterworth - KTM station, bus station, jetty for ferry and of cos, taxis. In addition to the convenience of public transportation, Penang Sentral offers several facilities and services to enhance the traveler's experience while in transit. 

Penang Sentral is build with shops, ticketing counters, prayer rooms, a food court, a nursing room and many other facilities to accommodate the needs of travellers. There are also parking spaces available for the convenience of those using transport facilities there. Penang Sentral is hoped to play an important role in streamlining transportation in the state as the place was a hub for long and short distance buses, taxis, ferries and trains.
