Stroll in PTikus 006Taking a slow Sunday stroll to lunch
Following the Friday night scare of having extreme pain on both my legs, I felt it is more worthwhile to exercise my legs and feet. I wondered whether I shall be wheel-chair bound if I cannot use my legs anymore. Can I face that type of situation as a senior citizen, retiree and photographer who goes to every nook and corner to photo-shoot anything of interest to me ? Good question but impossible answers.
Taking my camera with me and acting a role as a tourist in town of Pulau Tikus (translated as Island of Mouse) where I live presently, away I venture “into the world”. Slowly with my painful limbs, I took a slow stroll with “sliding” footwork instead of bold strides foot-steps. We are heading towards the Gurney Paragon Mall and the Gurney Plaza – where I need to pay off my Standard-Chartered Bank Visa payments. Slow and steady in the hot sun but clear blue sky and probably take the free bus to a bus stop near my home on the return trip. Known to be “stingy” or rather “frugal” as one of the prominent characteristics of Penangite – rumoured to have the most millionaires per population figures in Malaysia without pocketing any “corruption” money. FREE is always an attractive word to any true-blooded Penangite, I assume.

The Gathering and Fellowship at Gurney Plaza, Penang   Leave a comment

The Gathering and Fellowship at Gurney Plaza, Penang
The Gathering and Fellowship of the Senior Citizen from the Class of 1964 to 1970 was held at Seoul Garden, Gurney Plaza, Penang tonight January 4, 2016. This is a Korean food restaurant with an “eat as much as you want” tag – a sort of steam-boat and barbecue meat restaurant. Only chicken and beef meat were served as it is supposed to cater to Muslim customers too so no pork meat. Limited range of seafood was also included with prawns, cockles and of course, the fresh greens for salad. If you are not full, instant Japanese noodles, koay teow – rice noodles, eggs are added as extras. Desert and cold drinks were also available. Desert is in the form “Ice Kacang” or “Chendol” with sugar syrup and shaved ice.The best deal was that we were charged half price from the regular price as senior citizen above 60 years old. The food was good and tasty with the reasonable seasoning of the meat served.

No matter what camera you use. so long as you are passionate in photography, this entry is dedicated to you. I liked Mr Michael Chuan-style of photography = to capture at all cost from every possible angle even from bottom-up. Yes, photographers are an enthusiastic lot when coming to capture an image for record or competition. Good luck.

Children’s Traditional Wear Contest held at Gurney Plaza, Penang   Leave a comment

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

In conjunction with the Merdeka’s Day of Malaysia, a Children’s Traditional Wear Contest was held at Gurney Plaza on Saturday, 20 August, 2011. I am indeed impressed with the contestants especially a five-yeared girl from Bukit Mertajam who was so full of confidence and poise. She posed for every photograph which I took. Though she did not win, she won my admiration. Definitely, a future winner if I can say so! The parents must be acknowledged as “training” these children from such tender an age to such contestants oozing with such determination and confidence. Syabas and early Merdeka Day celebrations to the winners namely, ‎1. Melissa Lee 2. Nurazyn Arysha 3. Michelle Ooi.
