Malaysia; Penang’s 2nd bridge to open to traffic..

Tomorrow 1st March 2014, Penang’s 2nd bridge will be open to traffic. It is the longest bridge in South East Asia. It’s length is 24km; 16km out in the waters and 8 km on land.

This 2nd bridge will help to ease the traffic on the 1st bridge which is more than 20years old and is only slight more than half the length of the 2nd bridge.

Me passing the entry point to the 2nd bridge which is hours away from the opening.

Anyway, once I have more on this, I will share with my readers.

P.S. If any of your are interested in marathon, they may organize a marathon on this 2nd bridge in November this year. So do keep a look out. 😊

Malaysia – Christmas is Just Round the Corner (2)

This is my follow up of my post on Malaysia – Christmas is Just Round the Corner (1) . By now, all the shopping malls and shops are in full force and ready for the Xmas shoppers with Xmas song blasting in the background. People busy window  shopping and looking for gifts or items on offers.

This is the final decoration up in one of the biggest shopping mall in South East Asia. Sights of giant ‘hot air balloons’ in the center of the concourse.
