Hike up Bukit Jambul Hills : 15.11.2009
On this wet, rainy morning, 5 of us went for this hike ie.
committee members Hwang Hong Shi, Hor Seng Nam, Gurdeep Kaur together
with our friend Teh Leong Meng ( who took the pics) and Molly, the blog editor.
The trail was interesting, going uphill, then levelling and downhill again.
Hike to Muka Head : 5.12.2009
This is a longer hike to one of the best, unspoilt beaches in Penang – Muka Head.
Committee members Hwang Hong Shi, Hor Seng Nam and Gurdeep Kaur went along
with friends and those who responded to our blog and the Star ‘What’s Up’ ad.
Then onto the Lighthouse – the most strenuous climb of this hike
The 115-year historical tower of the lighthouse.
Its original lights, fueled by petroleum vapour, were first installed
around 1900 by Chance Brother Smethwick of Birmingham.
In 1954, these lights were replaced by the same firm using electric lamp.
Erected atop a 240 meter (785 foot) cliff, the lighthouse makes a dramatic
marker to ships and sailors negotiating the northwestern cape of the island

What an enjoyable outing ! An invigorating break from our polluted city life.
