Christie and Jay come to Malaysia

In February, we had the pleasure of hosting our second set of guests, Christie and Jay!  We were super excited to have them visit for two weeks, where we showed them around Penang, and took a long weekend trip to lovely Langkawi. 

We spent their first few days hanging around Penang and eating the fantastic food!  Christie loved wantan mee and Jay loved soup dumplings.  While Eric was at work, Jenn played tour guide taking our guests around to Little India, the Blue Mansion, China House, Cafe 55, and our local market.  We happy houred every night on our patio, eating homemade hummus, salsa and drinking margaritas and rum and coke.

Mid way through their visit, we escaped to Langkawi, to show Christie and Jay a little more of our adopted home country, Malaysia.  Unfortunately, Eric had to work and joined us a bit later on our adventure.  Jenn, Christie and Jay visited the cable cars and took in the great views and cool breezes of the island.

We also took part in the Island Hopping Tour, where we rode a small boat to three of Langkawi's 99 islands.

Eric joined us on Friday night and we spent the rest of the weekend enjoying the beach, drinking duty free beer, reading books and relaxing.

We returned late Sunday evening and had one more week to check out the rest of Penang's offerings! Here are a few more pictures of our adventures!

We are so glad that Christie and Jay came and experienced our island home!  We had a great and full two weeks!  Visitors are always welcome at the Hartner's!
