November Luncheon of Old Frees Classmates 2.2   Leave a comment


November Luncheon of Old Frees Classmates

The 4th November, 2017 is an eventful day in Penang with Floods taking the headlines … It started off with our Penang Free School boys having November Luncheon at Starview. We are discussing on our former classmate Tan Hock Eang at the Oval Office with President Trump. The Starview Restaurant was closed in the afternoon as the main road was flooded.

Flood prevention in my neighbourhood   Leave a comment


Flood prevention in my neighbourhood. Having stayed for more than 30 years at my current home at Pulau Tikus, Penang, we had not encountered any flooding problem. However, the walls of the monsoon drain, two doors away from my house, had collapsed due to old age. We can see the renovating works taking place now but with great inconvenience to the residents. We are able to bear these small hardship like dusty, muddy soil, noisy heavy machineries, heavy traffic due to part of road being closed, cannot enter the house, etc as this will definitely prevent any floods in the future with global; warming in mind. Previously, the contractor used even red clay bricks as the retaining walls of the drain but nowadays pre-casted drainage blocks of concrete are used. From the work so far, if you do not watch closely it is passable but not to standards. Well?
