Seafood Treat at Sea Pearl Lagoon Cafe, Tanjung Tokong, Penang   Leave a comment


Evening at Hai Choo Soo or Sea Pearl Lagoon Cafe, Tanjung Tokong, Penang is the name I gave this series of HDR photos I took. We were at this Tanjung Tokong Seafood Restaurant for dinner as my sister had her guests from Kuala Lumpur. It was early evening when I took these beach side scenery as we were waiting for the crabs, prawns or big shrimps, fishes, and other dishes. Everyone enjoyed themselves.

Evening at Hai Choo Soo, Tanjung Tokong, Penang is the name I gave this series of HDR photos I took. We were at this Tanjung Tokong Seafood Restaurant for dinner as my sister had her guests from Kuala Lumpur. It was early evening when I took these beach side scenery. Using the on-board processing of these HDR shots on my Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR. A very convenient feature of this camera for which I used habitually now.

Hong San See Temple of White Clouds Hill, Penang   Leave a comment

As we had some time on hand, we went to shoot at Hong San See Buddhist Temple located at Mount Erksine or Peh Hoon Sioh aka White Clouds Hill, Tanjung Tokong, Penang. There is a smaller version of Kuan Yin Statue at this temple’s compound which is located on the side of a hillock. Thus, to get to the Temple, one must climb several hundred steps.

Strolling around Straits Quay at Penang with a visit to the Library   Leave a comment

Feeling lazy to tug along my DSLR camera and back=pack sized bag, I took my point-and-shoot cheapie camera worth RM299.00 into my pocket. I am going to Straits Quay to test the food & beverage outlets. After strolling along the mall, I picked the choice of the Library – yes, a restaurant/pub not for the dedicated book-worms. Set lunch was value for money at a price not exceeding RM18.00 per pax. Food was good.

The Flame Watching Ceremony or Chneah Hoay Ceremony of Poh Hock Seah was held on the Chap Goh Meh eve night at Hai Choo Soo Temple at Tajung Tokong, Penang. The usual question on why the Poh Hock Seah Temple which is based in town has to travel up to Tanjung Tokong to conduct the ceremony. Well? Watch for the next instalment when my internet has stabilized.

The Taoist Priest started the morning session of prayers at around 11.00 am. Lunch of dried oyster brooth followed. After lunch, another Taoist Priest led the prayers and after obtaining approval from the Twa Peh Kong, the wooden image was transferred from the main altar to portal altar by the Poh Hock Seah President Dato Lin Chooi Beng. Gongs and the drum were beaten to a loud pitch and volume. A small procession led by a Chingay flag started off towards Kuan Yim Teng, down China Street and Beach Street. The Procession turned into Victoria Street and headed towards Komtar along Magazine Road. It stopped in front of Traders Hotel where the Chingay flag, Hneoh Thay were placed on top of a lorry and proceed to Tanjung Tokong where the Chneah Hoay or Flame Watching Ceremony will take place later that night.

This coming Chinese New Year (CNY) shall be the Year of the Dragon. It is most unfortunate for me that my late wife was borned in the Year of the Dragon and she should be 60 years if she had lived on. Last Saturday night was the Temple Fair of the Hong San See Temple located along the old main road to Tanjung Bungah. I could well remembered we were jammed during Chap Goh Meh some 40 years ago along this road. Back to the Temple Fair, it was indeed a great way to celebrate CNY this year with the rich cultural and religious values.
