Most of my trip to Penang was at night, right after I finished my work . Usually I arrived at Penang after 3 1/2 hours of driving via PLUS . Driving at night means the only thing that u see is the illuminated panel of your car’s dashboard , the reflective signboards along the highway and the white/red eye soaring lights from other fellow highway users.
Last week, me and wifey decided that we will drive to Penang on Saturday morning , right after breakfast. At 8 am in the morning, my oh my the view along the PLUS highway, especially around the valleys and uphill routes near Ipoh were simply breathtaking !!
The tops of the hills were partialy covered with dense thick mist , the temperature was cool and the air was so fresh and sweet at the same time. We stopped at the Ipoh Viewpoint area to take some pictures. The grasses were still dripped with morning dew , and the air was soooo cool.
