Shangrila Penang was closed for major refurbishment a few years back. During my last visit to Penang, we stayed at Golden Sands ( beside it) instead. I love the greenery which surrounds this hotel. It's old and matured and this makes it different from the newer hotels I've been to. The service is very good. I got a DVD player put in my room ( upon request) to watch my Korean dvd during the weekend. Yup! Brought 2 discs with me....to watch at night rather than CNN. Service is definitely with a smile. My inquiries about Catholic churches and mass times were attended to diligently. And yes my fresh fruits were replenished:) Love this hotel. It's a pity I didn't have time to sample the massage and pedicure
The name of this blog was shamelessly pinched from that wonderful programme starring Joanne Lumley and Jeniffer Saunders. Thank you for dropping by...
Most of the pictures are my own. When I can remember ( which is only lately) I credit the folks whose pictures I blog. Apologies to the owners of earlier pictures used in this blog. Back in the dark ages, I wasn't as tech-savvy as now.

God if you can't make me thin, at least make my friends fat.
