A Evening Walk Along Gurney Drive On Festive Season – It’s Hari Raya, Day 2. Penang has became a very congested little island on this festive season with Malaysian from other states flocking into the UNESCO World Heritage City of George Town. Traffic congestion are everywhere in Penang.
To prevent getting trap and being frustrated in the traffic congestion, one of the activity I did to kill time was strolling along Gurney Drive, a quick walk for a little sweaty exercise with my parents. It was some unusual activity, normally I would just jog, but it was just walking with a faster pace, enjoying the breeze and laughing at those who were stuck in the traffic jam. HAHA.
Gurney Drive has more people than normal day as it’s a public holiday. Unfortunately, it’s low tide and a huge part of it revealed the ugly muddy shore. Seriously, I am quite sad to see this unhappy scene. It’s like the shores are crying. Something need to be done, environment expert, state government, just turn it into a park, expand the walkway, or whatever way to bring back the lovely shore.
The other end of Gurney Drive still looks good. It’s still looks good and kids picking up seashell can be seen at there. It was a dull and cloudy day, a nice day out for walking, but not so nice for photography.
On the way back, detoured to Gurney Paragon for a little desserts and Gurney Drive hawker for some nice soya milk, as well as fresh cockles (si hum) lok-lok. What a nice night.
Happy Hari Raya, day 2 and enjoy the kotai in your area. Happy hungry ghost month too!
One more thing, did I mention I met local artist and TV host – Miau Miau Lin Jing Miao (苗苗 林静苗)? =)
