Penang Apartments for Rent

It has always been Mommy's dream (and Papa's dream too!) that one day, out of the many Toto bets that Papa normally places on weekends, Papa's bet hits the Jackpot prize! ^_^ If this really happens, then both Papa and Mommy can afford to have super-early retirement and enjoy quality life and quality family time with Juan Or. Quality life and quality family time, for Mommy, means not having to be bound by work schedules and work stress. That means we can go for vacation anytime, anywhere, whenever and for as long as we want to!

One place Mommy has in mind to go for our not-bound-by-time vacation is Penang because Penang is the place that has it all - food adventure, sight-seeing, beach, shopping, educational visits and historical sites. We can possibly rent an apartment there for one or two months to enjoy our vacation whereby it is going to be a relaxed vacation unlike those guided tours which are very hectic. And then while staying in Penang, we can also venture to other vacation places on the northern side such as Langkawi, Alor Star, Wang Kelian and other southern Thai destinations for food adventure and shopping.

Just to have a feel of part of the dream vacation, Mommy decided to make an internet search to see whether there are apartments for rent in Penang and what the price range is like. That is how Mommy stumbled on this Malaysian property website called PropWall Penang. What is interesting about this website is that it offers various kinds of apartments or condominiums (and even houses!) ranging from the economical to the luxurious types, a choice of unfurnished, semi-furnished or fully-furnished types plus those that come with added amenities such as swimming pool, garden, gymnasium and panoramic seaview. The rental price ranges from as low as RM600 to as high as RM5000  per month for condominiums and house rental from RM1600 to RM8000. Of course if Papa wins the jackpot prize, then the rental price of a reasonably luxurious condominium of say RM3000 per month wouldn't be a problem, but if you are a working class person who wants to go for a one-whole-month vacation, then going for one advertised RM700 per month semi-furnished condominium in Sungai Ara, Penang would be a good option. That means paying only RM23.33 a day for one month to enjoy a vacation in Penang instead of paying hotel rates. Not just that, you can even bring along extended family members on vacation without extra cost on accommodation because the condominiums generally have 3 bedrooms.

Hehehe.....now let's just hope Papa hits the jackpot soon, then all this will be a reality. ^_^
