After A Walk Down To Weld Quay and Chew Jetty and some rest it was time to head to Batu Ferringhi Beach for the sunset.
We reached just before 6pm (quite difficult to find parking!) then setup on the beach for some sunset photography, there was still a lot of activity and it was quite busy with people banana boating, parasailing, jet skiing and horse riding.
Jet Skiing is fun! Good way to get sunburn though (I found the hard way).
Horse Riding on the beach? Unless you know how to gallop or at least canter – I can’t see it being much fun. Anyway horseriding is not for people who have testicles!
The kids of course love playing on the beach.
Beach boy taking the ATV back, too cool for school.
Shutter Asia photographers getting ready for the sunset.
Parasailing must be awesome during dusk, I did it once in Penang it was a really good experience.
Shortly after that the sun started to set and it was time to start snapping.
Caught a bit of flare on this one.
Parasailing into the sun!
As the sun disappeared behind the hill, it started to rain so it was time for us to make a quick exit – pack up our stuff and head to Jemputree for dinner.
And well that was the end of that trip, great that it was. Went for a bit of food hunting the next day but all the famous food had too many customers and they actually turned us away (yes the red hat lau yee Lorong Selamat CKT).
Then a long drive back to KL and back to work the next day, oh well!
That’s all for that trip, maybe the rest of the Sabah pics soon.
You can see the full set of pics here – Penang – March 2009
I see a flash gun pointing at the sun. 😛
I have been to that “red hat” lady’s CKT at Lorong Selamat several times and so far never got turned away nor asked to leave! One of the visit was even a Sunday lunch time. Besides the price, everything else was great! 🙂
Lorong Selamat CKT = lame. Most Penangites would never go there
I like the photo very much.
Even I stay in Penang but still seldom go until that far…
Very nice picture shot.
Damn…. Your shots are Great man.
Penang. food. beach. sunset. all these were so close and yet I’ve been neglected them.
Very nice picture taken, as usual! Good job =)
Amazing photos, ST! I’m looking for places to go during the long labor day weekend. Have considered Penang, but a bit far to drive down there.
Beautiful Photos as usual 🙂
KY: Heh fill flash for foreground subject?
Babyboss Michael: Yah first time I’ve been turned away, it was a holiday weekend though – place was packed to the rafter with Malaysians & Singaporeans.
michaelooi: Yah I know, and I keep asking them where they would go…and I get offered chicken rice haha. I still have yet to see the proof there is a better CKT than hers (I want it with huge prawns).
Every Malaysia: Thanks, go explore Penang…I’m happy to drive down from KL to visit Penang so at least go out a bit.
L30nArD: Hey Leonard, thanks 🙂
Myhorng: Yah we take what is in our own backyard for granted quite often.
shaoweii: Thanks 🙂
Huai Bin: Penang is a great place to go, it’s not really a long drive if you don’t stop it’s less than 3 hours and it’s pretty straight on the North-South highway. You could try Malacca if you want somewhere closer, Malacca food is awesome.
Joey Logano: Thanks.
