Tracing the History

This morning I head off into Penang to visit more historical sights. I started the morning with a delicious meal of Roti Canai, Nasi Minyak with Chicken and OJ. The great meal only costs RM 10.5 that is the equivalent of $3.5, what a deal. Then I visited Mahamariamman Temple, the oldest Hindu Temple in Georgetown built in 1883. A quick photo of Teochew Temple. I also visited 2 mosques : Kaptan Keling Mosque and Masjid Melayu Lebuh Acheh ...

... load Keith and Lisa before the anchor slipped and we lurched up and down and backwards, like being tossed about in a mini-hurricane. Phil nearly lost his hand as the rope attached to the anchor went flying; Shane went racing across the (wet, slippery, uneven) deck to try and help prevent us from crashing into the neighboring boat and to rescue Phil; Keith and Lisa and the owner of the neighboring boat were screaming instructions from the beach; Hank was screaming various obscenities ...

... next day we headed to Penang Hill. A train takes you to the top which makes for panoramic views of the state.

Instead we drove up and were faced with the almighty 30 metre tall Kek Lok Si Temple built by a Chinese monk in 1890 and is the absolute pinnacle for Buddhists living ...

Peculiar Pinang!

... somewhere in the middle of it all. We decided it was definately a confused town with no distinct identity. However, the cool street art on every corner was brilliant. Paintings of children on walls and then an object attacked to the wall giving the impression the child was riding a bike or stood on a chair, was fascinating work! The world heritage statue meant their were iron welded art work attached to the walls as well with funny quotes and statements. ...

... didn't seem to get many tourists, because the locals were very interested in us. We saw rows of fishing boats, with men sat in the shade and fixing the nets. We hit the highway and headed north. The road began to climb up through the hills, with dense jungle to our right and amazing views of Penang to the left. The Infrastructure is the best we have experienced on this trip. We were planning a stop at the tropical fruit farm but came across ...

    It was the place that me and my family used to stay at every month. And here I come back! Nothing change in the hotel but the memories of the hotel will always remain in my mind! Closed by to food and attraction. But quite far from beach but it is in the center of shopping!
