Wise move, Strider. You don't want to alienate The Beans!

Back to the question "Is Penang a suburb of Sydney?". Not just yet, but give us some time and Penang will be populated by Aussies.

Right now, Penang is looking pretty cosmopolitan especially around the Tanjung Bungah / Batu Ferringhi areas. You can't move without bumping into expats just like KL.

Not forgetting the wallabies a gift from the government of South Australia by a rather flamboyant premier by the name of Don Dunstan.

He had quite a soft spot for Penang.

You mean the gentleman(?) who used to wear tight pink shorts? Probably using the Col.Light connection. Anyway Aussies will get rid of wallabies any way they can lah...(not the Rugby team however)

Aussie interest are indeed on the way up unless something very nasty happens which no one can see as of yet.

Am a big fan myself as liked to be rewarded for having cash invested with the bank and UK and European banks are a bad joke.

Laos,out of interest, was offering 10% last time checked.
