1-PSP Outing KSepetang 551

Boat trip to the river mouth

Introduction
After a whole day without electricity. I am back at 7.45 pm after Tenaga “rewired the loose connections” of my 3-phased supply. Thanks to Chye Hong’s wiremen for “pulling out the plugs” of all electrical appliances as we thought it was short-circuit problem which was of a more common occurrence in my house. They checked every possibility and said that Tenaga meter is the problem and they are right. It was hot and sticky day because of no fan, no internet, no blogging, no TV, no fridge, no washing machine, and we are so dependent on electricity in modern time. Felt so helpless and “depressed”. Anyway, all things said it is back to normal again. I can do my blog entry again from now. Better late than never.

Tenaga is the sole Malaysia’s National Electrical Utility Company.

Though Malaysia has Islam as the Official Religion of the country, the non-Muslim section of the Malaysian population also practise other religions like Christianity, Hinduism. Buddhism, Taoism, Sikhism and others. I am a Buddhist who also observe Taoist rituals and prayers due to traditional ancestral belief.

1-BalikPulau Murals 5D 048
Balik Pulau (literally meaning “back of the island” in Malay) is a town in Southwestern part of Penang Island, Malaysia. The town is most famous for natural local agricultural produce like Durians and Nutmegs. A visit to the town will be incomplete if there is no visit to the wet market and food court for the food like laksa, pasembur, and nutmeg juice.
However, Monday is not a good day to visit this town for my recent trip here as most stalls selling pickled fruits, fish fritters, spicy potato chips, belachan, and local procusts…

The Kek Lok Si Temple (simplified Chinese: 极乐寺; traditional Chinese: 極樂寺; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Ki̍k-lo̍k-sī; Penang Hokkien for “Temple of Supreme Bliss” or “Temple of Sukhavati” or “Jile Si”) is a Buddhist temple situated in Air Itam in Penang facing the sea and commanding an impressive view, and is one of the best known temples on the island. It is said to be the largest Buddhist temple in Malaysia. It is also an important pilgrimage centre for Buddhists from Hong Kong, the Philippines, Singapore and other countries in Southeast Asia. This entire complex of temples was built over a period from 1890 to 1930, an inspirational initiative of Beow Lean, the Abbot. The main draw in the complex is the striking seven-storey Pagoda of Rama VI (Pagoda of Ten Thousand Buddhas) with 10,000 alabaster and bronze statues of Buddha, and the 30.2 metres (99 ft) tall bronze statue of Kuan Yin…

Dengue In Malaysia Watch CDC

What is the current situation?

According to the World Health Organization, from October 18-24, 2015, there were 2,286 cases of dengue reported in Malaysia.

Travelers to Malaysia should protect themselves against mosquito bites to avoid getting dengue.

What can travelers do to prevent dengue?

Learn more about dengue.

No vaccine or medicine can prevent dengue. Travelers can protect themselves by preventing mosquito bites.

Prevent mosquito bites:

  • Cover exposed skin by wearing long-sleeved shirts, long pants, and hats.
  • Use an insect repellent as directed.
  • Higher percentages of active ingredient provide longer protection. Use products with the following active ingredients:
    • DEET (products containing DEET include Off!, Cutter, Sawyer, and Ultrathon)
    • Picaridin (also known as KBR 3023, Bayrepel, and icaridin; products containing picaridin include Cutter Advanced, Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus, and Autan [outside the United States])
    • Oil of lemon eucalyptus (OLE) or PMD (products containing OLE include Repel and Off! Botanicals)
    • IR3535 (products containing IR3535 include Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus Expedition and SkinSmart)
  • Always follow product directions and reapply as directed:
  • If you are also using sunscreen, apply sunscreen first and insect repellent second.
  • Follow package directions when applying repellent on children. Avoid applying repellent to their hands, eyes, and mouth.
  • Treated clothing remains protective after multiple washings. See the product information to find out how long the protection will last.
  • If treating items yourself, follow the product instructions carefully.
  • Do not use permethrin directly on skin.
  • Use permethrin-treated clothing and gear (such as boots, pants, socks, and tents). You can buy pretreated clothing and gear or treat them yourself:
  • Stay and sleep in screened or air conditioned rooms.
  • Use a bed net if the area where you are sleeping is exposed to the outdoors.

If you feel sick and think you may have dengue:

  • Talk to your doctor or nurse if you feel seriously ill, especially if you have a fever.

She Walks the World

The Hard Rock Hotel Penang is located along the coastal stretch of Batu Ferringhi, in Malaysia’s northern island state of Penang. It is one of the most popular tourist spots on the island– a stretch of beach lined with world-class resorts, hotels and ritzy condominiums. The beach itself isn’t anything to shout about, but with the luxury and comfort most of the resorts provide; it more than makes up for it.

And of course, if you’re staying in a resort like the Hard Rock– with specially designed rooms, sandy bottom swimming pools and fun-filled activities; there is really no need to go anywhere else.

The Hard Rock Hotel PenangOverview
I stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel Penang a couple of times when I visited Batu Ferringhi. It is one of the more prominent resorts along this stretch of coastal road– after all, who can miss its signature purple sign? Just like the other few…

She Walks the World

My second time back in Tenggol Island for another round of diving. There were many sites I missed the first time round– so I decided to head back to explore some more! You can read about the island and how to get to it in my previous post:- Scuba Diving in Malaysia’s Pulau Tenggol. I was with a smaller group for this trip, and some of the dives were lead by the resident Dive Master and Instructor from the Tenggol Island Beach Resort Dive Center.

I was visiting in September, and it can be considered the tail end of the dive season on the East Coast of Malaysia. By the time the fourth quarter of the year kicks in; the monsoon season begins and most of the resorts will close. During my visit, I was surprised to find that the secluded Tenggol Island had quite…
