Malaysia – A View from the Airplane Window

This is my one of trip back from Penang to Kuala Lumpur using flight. As flights were getting more affordable (provided you book early) it is more convenient to fly than to take a bus which may even cost more. Malaysia have a lot of choices of flights to choose from such as Firefly, Berjaya Airlines and Malindo which flies to Subang Skypark, and Airasia to LCCT. Flight time is usually around 45mins to 1 hr whereas a bus trip will take about 4 to 5 hours.

In the Firefly ATR 72-500 propeller plane taxing to take off.


passing by an Airasia 737-400 which just arrived.


A nice shot from the airplane window overlooking the 2nd Penang Bridge link; which is 24km long (land and sea) which is expected to be open in Nov 2014 linking the island to the mainland at Batu Kawan.


The Island of Pulau Jerejak which is a short 5min ferry ride from the island. This island was formerly the main leper asylum for The Straits Settlements (1868), then Quarantine Station(1875) and later penal colony (1969) for the ISA detainees. Now, it has been converted to a resort which is facing the island side. While the other side of the island of Jerejak is a shipyard.


Lastly…. a short out of the window of the clouds at 25,000 feet.

Kids play … in an Adult world

School holiday is on till 1st Jan 2013 and now…kids are having a great time playing and having fun.

Today, brought my kids to a place where kids play in an adult world where they become what they want to be as an adult. You can see kids as young as 5 to as old as 17 years old coming to this place; Kidzania. There is one and only one in Malaysia and I heard that they are going to only start building one in Singapore.
