Well .. the tickets are booked. We will be arriving in Penang on the 20th of May. The hotel is booked for 10 days so I hope we can find a place to rent (for a year) in that time ... I am packing up the house and hoping all will go well with the move. I just hope it is possible to get a condo on a low floor as I am not at all keen on living up high :-) I have been looking at the IProperty.com site but there are no search choices for low floors ... any tips or just wishing us luck will be appreciated :-) .. I hope to meet some of you soon.
