I have already been back again to Batu Ferringhi several moments over the last number of years. I am so unfortunate at what is actually transpired to Penang recently and my condolences to each of the survivors as well as their familes. Terima Kaseh Ron Collins
Hi everyone I'm back again having a new deal with. I am now seeking any RAAF wives who experienced their babies with the RAAF Hospital on The bottom within the 7 days foremost approximately as well as the 7 days following February 27th 1980. Our children are coming up 21 future yr And that i'd like to understand how all of them are actually. My son Chris is extremely properly and performing an apprenticeship, goes into his last calendar year on December 10.
My family lived at 34, Highway three from 1963-sixty six. I recall visiting the Australian Hostel, Which waitress referred to as Mary, who accustomed to appear out in the kitchen with plates of chips, saying "who? who?" when she could not remember who'd ordered them! My mum and father was once from the Penang Gamers, and I bear in mind going to see the Desert Tune (for which I assisted to paint the surroundings), and Sinbad the Sailor there.
Pam Rackley Thank you for that look at Tanjong Tokong and Tanjong Bungah. I accustomed to are now living in Jalan Hashim, Tanjong Tokong from 1978 to 1980. I haven't observed the put due to the fact then and it is sweet to discover it's developed and designed over time. Tags around the images to tell people precisely where by the photographs are actually taken will be superior.
A native of Penang, I remaining the lovely isle in 1978 for Australia. Given that then, I have returned residence on a regular basis and adopted its transformation from a sleepy island town into a bustling town bursting at its seams. Nevertheless, what isn't going to alter could be the people today, the meals (albeit a tiny bit extra dear now)and the general mentality of Penangites.
Mild founded George Town as being a absolutely free port to entice traders clear of nearby Dutch buying and selling posts. He also encouraged immigrants by promising them as much land as they may crystal clear and by reportedly firing silver dollars from his ship's cannons deep to the jungle.
Penang has adjusted alot, gone are classified as the Wonderful very long obvious seashores "Silver Sands" and many others,now motels have sprung up all over the place. Effectively that's progress for you personally. I need to acknowledge that I do miss the foods and hope to pay An additional go to soon. Many thanks for the memories. Maurice Hillier
This webpage signifies a little something Unique to me because my relatives life in Tanjung Bungah as well as every one of these images in your website are really acquainted to me, some of them was my hold-out places visit and sites I have handed by so over and over just before. These times back in Penang - I took a great deal as a right due to the fact i did not are aware that at some point I might have go away Penang and migrate to UK.
I am also surprise nobody say nearly anything with regard to the Satay stall directly throughout from your outdated website Fatty Loh hen rice location several blocks down in the previous Fettes park sector. A Malay woman and her sister or sister-in-law used to run the organization. But I read they've moved. Where by can I locate very good satay the following time I return to Penang???? Sigh....

I spent two, two week periods in 1953 and 1954, and carefully savored the rustic quality of Tanjong Bungah, back in that period, and only want that I could return. However, I am in no posture to journey anymore, but I do have fond Reminiscences on the Depart Centre.
In some cases we could see in disappointment that there have been only one or two RAAF staff occupying The complete bus although area college students needed to watch for several hours after which jam-packed after we finally boarded the buses! The previous Springtide hotel is gone! Visitors is chaotic; the freshwater stream that led out to the sea is no more there! In some way, you can by no means "! go residence" once the destruction of the natural splendor and peace that was when the epitome of Penang, the "Pearl with the Orient". It is currently the chaotic Penang....I hope that someone has the foresight to stop the further erosion in the magic of Penang and my hometown, Tanjong Bungah.
Tanjong Bungah is a fantastic area, almost everything you may need in 15 minutes push. I can not wait around until eventually i return for an extended vacation in two decades time! Definatley well worth the go to for all those thinking of heading.
Plenty of constructing has long gone on at the conclusion of the road. Any one around who will mail me pictures of a lot more of Jalan Hashim also the previous RAAF universities and Fettes market they might be here really appreciated. Any ex RAAF individuals living on Penang would really like to hear from you. Pam Rackley
