This morning I went for a walk down at Straits Quay. Very nice and surprisingly quiet. I'm trying to work out what mountain this is. Does anyone know? I might have to get on google earth and work it out otherwise.

Talking of Sunny Penang... it was rather yesterday. Went over to Bt Ferringhi with friends for a snacky lunch. B Ferringhi is a funny ol' place. I used to dislike it. Now I do like it It can be a bit touristy and tacky in parts.

I think Penang is not particularly rated for its beaches but you can find a few nice bits here and there. Took this pic right in the heart of the touristy bit Ah... could be worse.

beaches are a bit underrated in penang ....... there are some quite nice ones on the way to telok bahang from batu ferringhi ...... not the greatest perhaps, but quite passable

Yes I agree with you. I haven't fiddled with that photo (wouldn't know how to) but was surprised how good it looked somehow. Not a patch on Langkawi beaches though.

Hot and hazy day today. I think there will be a storm coming.

The last time I was at G. Jerai, there is just one challet serviced by a Malay group. They have quite interesting activities like staying in nylon tents out in the open with the wildlife around.

However I was quite saddened by the amount of garbage at the stream nearby that is opened to the Public. Sometimes the civil mindedness of us Malaysias can be very depressing.
