A Walk Down To Weld Quay and Chew Jetty – Penang

So after our Walk Around Georgetown Heritage Trail – Penang, we walked on down to Weld Quay where the clan jetties are in Penang.

Just before we left the foodcourt for the jetty I spotted this jolly old fella who made me think of a Chinese Popeye!

After that we visited the Chew Jetty, they even have a Homestay program!

It was really really hot by the time we’d reached there.

There were a lot of people hard at work, like this fella sorting out crab bits.

And this fella off fishing or some such.

After that it was grab a drink of water and a longgg walk back to the cars before lunch. Always time to grab a reflection on the way.


Spotted this serious looking fella riding his bicycle.

And this poor old fella who may of fallen on hard times.

We headed to New World food court for some lunch, then back to the hotel to rest before going to Ferringhi Beach for the sunset.

    I like your portrait shots, especially the vivid details on the Chinese popeye 🙂

    I bought a dSLR – Canon 1000D b4 CNY, still learning how to shoot properly. Thanks for the inspiration!

    brings back memories of my mom’s hometown – we had an old neighbor who we also called uncle popeye who looks like the feller in ur shot
