I have known Doc Gelo for a long time through blogging and have been stalking his blog occasionally leaving little comments but it has remained that way for years.I have always wanted to meet him personally but never had the courage to do so until I learned that he already transferred to Penang Malaysia along with his family.
I was very happy therefore that I got the chance to go back to Malaysia and finally visit Penang.Kinda strange that I met him pa in another country.The days leading to our scheduled trip,I started stalking him again tru Facebook with the hope of finally meeting him.I am very happy he didn't turn me down,and on the eve of August 25,the long awaited meetup happened.
He dropped by Old Penang Guesthouse to fetch me and my wife.He immediately asked us where we wanna go.I told him to suggest a place where we can eat dinner together.We took the cab and Doc Gelo instructed the driver to take us to Gurney Drive which is a seaside promenade (Baywalk?) where high end hotels and shopping malls are located.This is also where you can find Anjung Gurney---- famous for its hawker food similar to that of Jalan Alor in KL.
