The Old Penang and The New

I'm not a very good Penangite simply because I tend to spend all my time in the newly developed parts of Penang as opposed to the Old Penang Town.So last weekend I decided to do something different.

I drove into town to where the famous Penang Jetty, in an area also known as Weld Quay.

The view of the sea there was beautiful.

I admired someone's yacht parked in the water right in front of me for a moment and I pondered if I would ever buy a yacht if I were really rich one day.

But I lost interest in the yacht when I realised that I probably wouldn't use it for anything apart from impressing girls (which to some people could probably a good enough reason to spend millions of dollars).

Since I was there, I decided to have lunch at a new Hainanese Restaurant called Hainan Town.

While I expected restaurants in that part of town to be at least dirty looking, this one was clean, cosy and most importantly for me... cooling. Upon finishing my meal I walked around town a bit and glanced at the famous Penang Clock Tower that my school teacher used to tell me about.

My school teacher used to tell me that in his days, not many people in Penang had watches so they all depended on this one clock tower to tell the time.Though I'm not sure whether to believe him or not since he was the same teacher who once told the class that it was normal for school teachers to twist the nipples of their students if they were naughty or didn't do their homework.

The shy boy students who got their nipples pinched often cried in shame... but the thick skinned ones liked to act tough and moan
"Oooohh.. Ohhh... STIM... KUAT LAGI... TEKAN!!!".

I don't think I have to tell you guys which type of student I was.

Anyway, according to the nipple twister, sooner or later everyone neglected the clock tower and started getting their own watches and I could see why.

Because the damn clock wasn't working anymore and nobody bothered to fix it.

While my modest Swatch told me it was about 12 noon.

The old clock tower tried to lie to me by telling that the time was 12.55pm (HAH! SNEAKY CLOCK TOWER!).

So I walked around the quiet town a little bit more until I had enough.

Then I got into my car and........

HEADED TO OVER NEW PENANG WOOHOOO!!!
THE NEW QUEENSBAY MALL...

Now take a look at the OUTSIDE of the new Queensbay Mall in Penang.
Okay... then take a look at the INSIDE of the new Queensbay Mall in Penang. Does it look familiar?

YES IT DOES!!!

IT LOOKS JUST LIKE ANOTHER 1-UTAMA OR MIDVALLEY... BUT IN PENANG... HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

PENANG IS BECOMING more and more like KL.

And we're even reclaiming lots and lots of land.

Heck soon we'll have reclaimed so much land that we won't be an island anymore... in fact, Penang will be known as an INLAND city.. just like KL.

HAHAHAHAHAHAH

Anyway, I walked around Queensbay Mall to look for something to eat.

I was considering Beard Papa's lovely and rather expensive cream puffs but I decided that these expensive 'snacks' weren't meant for people in the lower income bracket like myself.

So I went over here. And had ice-cream instead!

Boss Stewie is fat... and happy (eventhough the picture makes it look like something was wrong with the ice-cream I was eating)....

Chapree Da Grande said...

Queensbay Mall were in Bayan Lepas area, right? It looked exactly like 1-U or Mid Valley maybe because they shared the same anchor tenant: Jusco. XD

Btw, I didn't go to the mall when I was in Penang last month. If I want the same city experience like KL, I would not go all the way to Penang damnit XD
