      Battery for laptop

      by betska Online Now Mar 2, 2014 at 2:23 PM

      Have been trying to source a replacement battery for my Dell laptop. Got a call from a guy in Penang, wanting my credit card details so he can send the battery to me here in Australia. Not keen on giving out my CC details over the phone.
      So, I am wondering, since I will be in Penang next week, if anyone knows whereabouts I might be able to go when I am there to buy the battery? The guy on the phone would not tell me his location (as they only service Australia?)
      Any help would be appreciated.

      Going to visit Penang hill but have trouble walking due to knee replacement, have read that you can get golf buggies when you reach the top, are these for hire or do you have to be driven around. If this is true does anyone have any idea of the price

      I do not like Humidity at all, but to visit when it is at its lowest humidity would be ok.

      I am unable to find a reputed City Tour operator in Penang ?
      Can you please recommend one ? also what would be the approx. cost ?

      I was able to find a local contact form the hotel that give private tours - however - this would be just a private tour and I am unable to find any references. Plus he is charging me RM35 per hour minimum for 5 hours - is this a good deal ?

      Please let me know your thoughts.

As I heard, penang got a very beautyful old citycenter but the beaches are not famous. What else can I see there? Are 1,5 days enough? And what is the best way to travel there? With the ferry or by bus? How long takes the ferry and about what costs are we talking about (bus and/or ferry)?

    • Specialist leather tailor

      by comps01 Online Now Feb 9, 2013 at 9:58 AM

      Hi VT'ers
      Heading over to Penang later this year for 2-3weeks and was wondering if anyone can recommend a tailor that specializes in leather, i'm looking to maybe get a jacket each for myself and the good wife and maybe a skirt or dress for the wife as well. Iknow in Bali there are tailors that only do leather and was hoping for the same in Penang. We're regular visitors having been 1/2 dozen times over the last few years and have had the mandatory suits and dresses made by traditional tailor but I don't recall seeing a leather specialist. Also someone mentioned to me a jeweller on or near Chulia St that custom makes jewelry, the name Max comes to mind. Got a milestone anniverary coming up and thought i'd get something made(happy wife=happy life). cheers
