In places where paddy fields are everywhere (for example:Perlis), those paddy insects are one of the things fear us the most and we are most familiar with. During some specific periods, we will face insect and bug problem which make our life quite miserable and itchy limbs and body is common. Luckily I don't have sensitive skin, but some of my friends suffer endless itch and some even has swollen 'wound' due to the insects.
This time, another type of insect attacks again.

Since there is a request on writing this post (and I'm freaking damn honored!), so here it goes...
On Friday, Wesak Day, we (me, CK, Voon and BeeYing) went to Danok for a day trip.
It was initially a plan to have the cheap steamboat after I had one on January, but, you know, delays and delays happen. Until one day, we had enough and decided this is it!!
Since CK has been there few times at night, I have been there once at night, the other two never been there, and they can NONE about description or recommendation of day trip in Danok online, we decided we gonna give it a try (a day-trip try).

UPDATE (Sept 2017) 1) All trains to-fro Padang Besar no longer stop at Penang, which means no more forward facing then back all the way to KL yay!

Do note that seats 14 and 15 at coach ABEF, seats 10 and 11 at coach C and seats 1 and 2 at coach D are facing each other, so unless you travel in group or family, try to avoid this seats as it can be uncomfortable.
Also, for those with luggage, you might consider taking seats like eg #8 at coach AB in southbound trip as there is vacant space in between the south and north facing seats, so you can put it there in case the luggage space is full.
