This year is the first time I attended such event. The International Dragon Boat Festival in Penang where’s 2 dragon boat competition, Club Crew World Championship and Asian Dragon Boat Championship. It’s quite a big event in Penang and it’s held at the Teluk Bahang Dam which is quite far from town, every year. Thanks Sheng for driving me there or else I won’t be there to join crowds.
(Chong Wee‘s pass.)
I went there on the last day of this dragon boat festival and unfortunately, it rained when we arrived. I was worrying about me not taking any photos because of the rain, but soon the rain stopped and it’s started to get hot and sunny.
I was there to meet my school’s dragon boat team, they’re quite a strong team, all macho macho, I guess that’s explain the reason of them getting 3rd in the Club Crew World Championship.
My main purpose being there was to take photos and share with my fellow readers. It’s so nice to see that there’s so many people from different countries etc. Singapore, Hong Kong, China, Japan, Indonesia, Philipines, Australia, Canada, USA, Germany, Russia, where else?
When you see blue shirt, with the word Forward marks on the back, it’s my school’s dragon boat team. Forward is actually a dragon boat team that not only of consist of members from Chung Ling High School but also adults. So there’s 3 team that went out for the competition, Under 18, Adults and Seniors.

I was kind enough to help people to take photo because in the mean time I could get some content idea to write on my blog. Haha. Thanks Khan for the Media Pass, though it doesn’t seems to need any pass to get closer to the boat, but it served as a souvenir to me.
Sources told me that Singapore’s NJC girls team loses to some team and were penalize to run around the dam. True or not, that’s what my friend told me. It seems like they got a tough coach there.
I went back at 3pm it was so tiring running here and there. Luckily there’s free drinks sample to quench my thirst. I’ll be there again next year for the same thing, it’s kinda fun but then it happened when my test is here, it just make me feel uneasy. Nevertheless, I had great day and once again congratulation to all the winning team especially Chung Ling High School’s dragon boat team.
