Penang Lim Jetty

Featuring [Penang Chew Jetty], [Penang Tan Jetty], [Penang Lee Jetty] and [Penang Mixed Clan Jetty]. I was really excited when I walked into Lim jetty. I never knew it was there, just beside the bus terminal so I walked past it to Chew jetty at the first place. As I walked back to the bus terminal, I accidentally discovered this Lim jetty. With pride, Lim Yun Sing stepped into the jetty. (drumroll) lol hahaha

I think I took the most picture there. So, again, let pictures tell the story.

Lim jetty :)

It has a beautiful scenery, though :D

You can see a lot of things from this jetty as it is the nearest to everything xD

This thing really did attract me when I first walked into the jetty.

They have weird plants I've not seen. Or should I say that I am a noob when it comes to plants? xD

Well, unlike the other jetties, this jetty is quite quiet. When I walked in, I don't see a single human. I don't know, maybe the Lims like to sleep in and wake up after sunrise, who knows.. Everywhere I walked, I saw banners.. name card printing, call Mr. Lim.. boat ride, call Mr Lim.. This, call Mr. Lim.. That, call Mr. Lim.. and I was like, practically everyone here is Mr. Lim xD

Then, Ms. Lim would need to rush and leave as she needs to attend art class at 10.30am so she charged for the bus terminal instead. The end of jetty tour story :D More coming up, stay tuned ;)

Penang Mixed Clan Jetty

Featuring last entry - Penang Lee Jetty (lol). Next will be the mixed clan jetty. There are like other six jetties, each owned by one clan. This mixed clan jetty is a jetty where the other remaining clans form a jetty by their own. Let's see how this jetty looks like! :D

Clan Jetty Heritage Home

Mixed Clan Jetty

I like this swing. A lot. Wanted to sit but it was like really awkward. Going into people's housing area like a boss and now sitting on their swing like a boss.

Clan Jetty Heritage Home

Seaview. No more sunrise. It's late already.

Well, have you been here?

When do you want to visit this place?

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.

- Steve Jobs

Do not afraid of what others will say and talk about you. You can't simply please everyone in life. When you are up to something, there will sure to be someone out there who wish to put you down. Do not give them the chance to do so.

Penang Lee Jetty

Back to Penang. Hehe.. Have you read [Penang Chew Jetty] and [Penang Tan Jetty]? Yeah.. so this is Penang Lee Jetty. Right after Penang Tan Jetty.

The entrance

These are the two uncles that were talking about the fish they caught or something when we came. When we were leaving, they said in Hokkien "The girls go already." Lol.. practically 'cha bor' xD

Sea view. But the thing is no more sun rise, after visiting two other jetties and had breakfast..

Penang Lee Jetty :)

The Lee Jetty:-

Housed the people of the Lee clan, who migrated from the village of Dui Shan Chan, in Tong Aun district, Quanzhou Prefecture, in Fujian Province, China, during the 19th century.

It is located in between the Tan Jetty and the Mixed Clan Jetty.

What is in the Bag?

Well, uh.. this is just for fun. This entry will tell you what is actually in my school bag.


Ya, uh.. this is the bag :) The yellow and blue body glove with only two compartments.


The main compartment shows the soprano recorder I've been bringing everywhere. There is an umbrella and two long rulers for school use. And, uh.. silver polish and polishing cloth. Wut? Yes.. for the instrument ^^

Missing: Pencil case and food. There was once a teacher asked me, "Yun Sing.. your friends told me that in that bag, there is no books, only food. Then I saw your bag. It is full of food. Didn't you bring any books to school?" I'm like hehehee.. live to eat and eat to live :3


The smaller compartment. There will be what I call basic necessities, the purse and keys.

I know this is totally random but ya :) What is in your bag? Do share in the comment below ^^

Frozen - Reindeers Are Better Than People


Reindeers are better than people
Sven, don't you think that's true?
Yeap, people will beat you and curse you and cheat you
everyone of them's bad, except you

"Aww thanks buddy"

But people smell better than reindeers
Sven, don't you think I'm right?
That's once again true,
for all except you

You've got me!

That's call it a night,
Good night

Penang Tan Jetty

As in the previous entry, Penang Chew Jetty, this is Penang Tan Jetty, the jetty next to Chew jetty. I have nothing much to talk about this jetty so let's just let picture tell the story :) This jetty is somehow smaller than the first one I visited. This is because the Chew Jetty is the biggest clan jetty.

Here we go, Tan Jetty!!

Just like Chew Jetty, we can watch the beautiful sunrise from this jetty as well..

Just look at how big the Chew Jetty is!

Sunlight :) Day light :)

The view of Chew Jetty from Tan Jetty

I as well googled this jetty is:-

- Houses people of the Tan clan whose forefathers were Chinese immigrants who came from the village of Bing Zhou She, in Tong Aun District, Quan Zhou Prefecture, Fujian Province, China
- Created to house the coolies who were unable to afford living quarters on dry land, much of which is already owned by the Europeans or the Chinese towkays.

After a long journey (nah), we walked out of the jetty and as we continued walking, we found a kopitiam located in between Tan Jetty and Lee Jetty so we decided to stop by and have our breakfast.

Bandung with kuey teow th'ng

I don't know about you guys reading this, but for me the food here is quite delicious. It reminds me of my childhood where I followed my parents to kopitiam and they made me have these food although I used to hate them. What I ate was only Hokkien Mee. Now I start to love these food, they are delicious. The woman who took our order is friendly :) I will definitely love to eat there again! Do drop by and try ^^

Culling of stray dogs, is it a must?

As we all know, rabies is spreading in the northern region of Peninsular Malaysia. There were like three cases already happening in Penang. The state government is taking the step of culling of stray dogs to prevent rabies from spreading. This decision is somehow kinda opposed by animal activists.

A little from the article "Animal Activist begs halt to culling of stray dogs" in The Star paper today:-

Penang Animal Welfare Society (4Paws) founder Babara Janssen was in tears as she went down on her knees. She passed out momentarily before she was help up.
"I love Penang like I love the dogs and this is my home. If I have to die for Penang for the betterment of dogs, I will do it."

We as humans will always have the love for other living creatures. The guilt of killing a living creature will be there. But there will always be people who loves them more. We will be like "Poor dogs.." but we won't really do anything. These people will be fighting for the dogs, trying to spare them a life. Hearts are made from crystals. When a person chooses to made such decision is either from his/her:-

1. Rational thinking

or

2. The person is selfish

Well, it depends on how we see the issue. From one perspective, we will be like, yes.. what the state government do is correct. This will save more lives.. human are in risk. As featured in The Star:-

Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said he was only doing his job as a state leader by not putting people at risk, adding that he was willing to lose public support over his decision. 
"I respect opinions of animal activists and non-governmental organisations and I hope they will respect mine. I only made this decision after getting advice from experts in the state veterinary and health departments. I don't want to put lives of 1.6 million Penangnites at risk."

And some people will be like "Yes, you do it right, man! Hey, we love dogs too, but.. you choose.. the dogs die, or you die?"

Being a leader is not easy. When it come to issues like that, I guess.. nope, I am pretty sure that this is a really hard decision to make.

From another perspective, like, as in from the animal lovers' perspective, it is really a hard reality to swallow. It is bitter to see these happening without doing anything. Imagine, the animal activists were doing so much, preparing places for stray dogs and cats to stay, organizing a lot of events to raise fund for these lovely creatures. Whoever follows their pages should know. It is a great effort and we really see how much they really care regarding this issue.

But, to think rationally.. I read my friend's status a few days ago. It really opened my eyes on this issue.

"Culling dogs? Maybe we should cull humans who are infected too! And also cull uninfected humans coz they risk being infected!"
 "Maybe we should start killing Africans to prevent the spread of Ebola."

 And if you think, stray dogs' population can be considered large. You think it is possible to cull all of them?

I'm not saying who is wrong and who is right here but.. to me, maybe there is other ways? Culling of stray dogs is not the only way, right? It is sad to see this. I think I might cry if I'm there to watch this happen. They are living creatures just like us. Why we can kill them just like that? Why can't we kill human too, just like that? If it is human, why we do take the effort to find other ways? They have families, just like us. They breathe, just like us. They have feelings, just like us.

Someone Like You - Adele


Verse 1:

I heard that you're settled down
that you found a girl
and you're married now
I heard that your dreams came true
Guess she gave you things I didn't give to you
Old friend, why are you so shy?
Ain't like you to hold back
or hide from the light

Pre-Chorus:

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
but I couldn't stay away
I couldn't fight it
I had hope you see my face
and that you'd be reminded that for me
it isn't over

Chorus 1:

Nevermind I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don't forget me, I beg
I'll remember you said
"Sometimes it last in love 
but sometimes it hurt instead"
Sometimes it last in love 
but sometimes it hurt instead

Verse 2:

You'd know how the time flies
Only yesterday was the time of our lives
We were born and raised
in a summer haze bound by
these surprise of our glory days

*Repeat Pre-Chorus*

Chorus 2:

Nevermind I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don't forget me, I beg
I'll remember you said
"Sometimes it last in love 
but sometimes it hurt instead"

Bridge:

Nothing compares no worries or cares
Regrets and mistakes they are memories made
Who would have known how bitter sweet this will taste?

*Repeat Chorus 2*

*Repeat Chorus 1*

Student Life Part 1

So, here is a real fact and category of student life. Normal human, as a student will either be in one of these 3 categories:

Category 1: STUDY + SOCIAL = NO SLEEP

As we can see here, you want to be a perfect student that many people like or either you just wanna socialize but doesn't want to mess up with your studies. You either spend a lot of time with people in school and burn the midnight oil at night to keep up with studies. OR, you doesn't really talk to people much in school, you did talk but at the same time study. BUT you help people a lot and takes most of the group work so you end up burning the midnight oil at night to finish up other's work. The legend continues and only God knows when you will actually have a real good sleep without any worries *smirks*

Category 2: SOCIAL + SLEEP = NOT VERY PRESENTABLE EXAM RESULT

You were busy spending your time with your friends in school instead of studying or doing your school work, causing it to become homework. Worse, when you come home in the afternoon or in the evening, you somehow still need to spend time with your family so you actually only do like, half of your homework? Then you will be like nah, a student need to know how to stay alive. My body needs rest and I don't wanna die so I don't care, it is now 12 and I'm gonna sleep. So the question is, "WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO STUDY?"

Category 3: SLEEP + STUDY = NO FRIENDS

There are actually people who excels in their studies and have enough sleep at the same time. I'm surprised to actually find out there are still a lot of people that pay full attention in class and never even once sleep in the class (although this group is decreasing and seems like will soon extinct). These people think that sleeping in the class is a sin. People in this group are normally defined as stressed when it is near to exam. They can lock the world out and study. Well, they are used to this way of life but just people from other categories think they are crazy. Well, everyone actually thinks students of the other category is crazy so this is quite normal.

And the not so normal category:-

NO SLEEP, NO SOCIAL, NO STUDY

Are you alive?

Well, this is just what I've got from my observations. No offense yo! So, which category are you? Or did I actually left out some other categories? Do comment ^^ Thank you!

UPSR tomorrow..

Time passes so quickly. I feel like it was just last month I took UPSR, it was just last week I entered secondary school.. it was just yesterday I took PT3.. just in a few blink, here I am, in September, sitting in a form 4 class, eating so much to prevent myself from falling asleep like nobody's business.

But, guess what, tomorrow is the UPSR examination! Since I left my primary school until today, I've known quite a few brothers and sisters who are now in Primary 6. Friends' siblings, juniors from SK Batu Lanchang, 'adik-adik' (younger brothers and sisters) from SJK (C) Chong Cheng that I've met during the exchange programme (especially my "女儿" ("daughter") xD, neighbours, sons and daughters of my parents' friends, to name a few (actually quite a lot).

Today, whether I did mention you just now or not, whether I know you or not, even if you are a stranger or even I don't even know who you are or you actually existed, practically everyone, who will be taking the exam tomorrow. Good luck for your exam. Do your best and leave no regret. Whether your result will come flying with rainbow colours, tumbling down the hill and hit you, flowing away together with river water or whatever form it will come to you, don't think of it now.. Think of it on the result day. Haha.

Whatever it is, I wish everyone of you all the best, good luck! 加油! Gambateh! You can do it! Wait for my SPM next year T_T haha huhu.. lol~

Random story out of nowhere

As a formal form 4 student who is in science stream, I always have this problem with the Chemistry. Not only me and the subject Chemistry have no chemistry, but same goes to me with the teachers. The first day I step into the class I have a feeling that I will have this problem with the teacher. She taught me Maths in form 1. She was like "Yun Sing this class argh?" and gave some reaction as like she is very unlucky to have me in the class she is teaching.

This teacher likes to ask questions the day after she finishes a subtopic, which is a very good thing to do to make sure the students are aware of what is going on in the class. I will always be the last person standing in the class for not being able to answer her questions. Last one standing. Not good. I need to change but how?

Then there's it. She's on her maternity leave. We've got this new teacher, like really new, very young.. just 3 years older than us. But she was super good. The thing is she is really energized and teaches really fast in class. It's ok, we can understand what she was actually teaching. And she gave a lot of homework, too. One month, Then, we never see her again.

Poof! There'll be another teacher. Ok, we're not surprised. Waiting.. POOF! A man walked into the class. The first impression given was, "he is too weird!! I cannot!! x"D" Yeah.. practically it's like that. Every time he taught in front we will be giggling, he acted really weird and that's cute and funny.. He's like a mystery. When he first came, he don't even introduce himself. I got to know his name only when the lab assistant called him.

When other teachers asked, who teaches you Chemistry now? We'll be like.. "hmm.. the new teacher.. err.. *describe* *describe* *describe*" The teachers will be like "ooo.. him.." I always thought he is someone different and yeah.. poof! Today's the last day of him teaching us. Our teacher will be coming back tomorrow from her long holiday. He didn't actually taught us today. He gave us some talk. Inspirational talk. Yeah.. Bingo! I said so he is different.

Everyone was inspired and yeah.. bye bye~ To me he is still weird -_- Somehow.. It's ok.. I've seen a lot of weird people in my life. I, myself is weird, I think. Practically everyone is weird. Ok.., deep! You seldom find a girl who will actually go to people's house and talks to herself, then say "Stop talking to yourself. If not, the people in the house will be like, there's a weird girl talking to herself in my house!"

That's all the random life story for today. Bye xD

Inside Out

Yesterday, my friends and I hangout at Gurney Plaza. The main objective of going out that day is to watch Inside Out. We all agreed to watch it at 2.45P</ On that very day I discovered that there are people who actually doesn't know where the cinema is. We went out to bring my friend in. It was like, 2.43PM? And this girl actually ran to the cinema, insisting that she doesn't want to miss the first part. Three of us actually ran to the cinema. Yes, like seriously xD

It took forever to reach the cinema, with human jam, with a bagpack, with the big plaza. We finally reached the cinema. We went in without getting ourselves some popcorn. (Sigh)


We sat in the cinema like.. this is the first time I sweat in a cinema, with no popcorn. And guess what we ran for.., advertisement -_- Told her that there'll be 15 minutes of advertisement but she kept on running. Let me list down what she had missed. Nescafe, Mc Donalds, KFC.. (facepalm).. Well, cut the crap.. the movie was really awesome.


Introducing you these cute little personified emotions

Joy

Anger

Sadness

Disgust

Fear

They are shoo cute <3

The movie takes place in the head of this girl, Riley Andersen. Everything is really under control since the very beginning. The five personified emotions work in the headquarters. The headquarters is where the memories are played, the core memories which form islands- which is Riley's personality. When anything goes wrong, Joy will handle them. Riley's life is kinda perfect, I could say. A loving family, great friends and fun. Riley is really good in playing hockey. One day, the family just moved away (might be due to financial problem cause the dad kept on talking on the phone about work). Then, there's Riley's first day of school in the new place.

Joy wanted it to be a nice day for Riley. The teacher asked her to introduce herself. Sadness touched one of the memories. Riley started crying. Joy and Sadness fought over the memory when they accidentally entered the tube which brings all the memory to the islands, out of the headquarters. Joy and Sadness both are thrown out. Joy tries her best to save all the core memories. Sadness showed the way back.

Sadness is shoooo cute xD She's exactly like me, I could say.. LOL. Things kept on going wrong. The two had gone through a lot of things. The islands fell apart, the train stopped working, the train fell off, Riley's imagination friend, Bing Bong, Riley's dream boyfriend, the workers, the forgotten memories, the dream..

While Joy and Sadness struggled to go back to the headquarters, Anger, Disgust and Fear did not know how to control things. Riley argued with her parents, screwed up during hockey, booked the ticket back to her old house, stole money from her mu's purse and ran away from home. That caused the personality islands where Joy and Sadness are in, trying to walk back to headquarters, to collapse.

What could happen to Riley? Will Joy and Sadness able to get back to HQ? Will everything be under control? Watch the movie to find out ^^ See what is happening in everyone's head.

Watch the trailer :D


Moral of the story: In order to have happiness, you must have sadness (credit to Ishwari) xD

Proud of you

Source: facebook

On the 29th of August, two of the students from my school, St. George's Girls' School, competed in the Anchor Idol finals in the English category. Was quite upset I could not attend to support them but they did really well. My senior, Sheree Tan emerged as champion, following the footstep of our senior, who was the champion for last year's Anchor Idol. Despite having SPM Trial, she still did her best in the competition. Congrats, you made the school proud. Continue pursuing your dream to become a broadcaster. We will all support you :)

Rashveen Kaur, a form 4 student in my school whom I don't even know existed in my school, to be honest with you. I'm sorry, didn't actually know everyone who is same form as me in school. I thought she was actually from CGL when I first saw her in the training workshop. Congrats upon winning the third prize in the Anchor Idol competition. Proud of you :) Finally know you. You should really talk more in school, man! I don't even see you in school.

Proud of you guys :) Was quite sad that I could not join you in the battle. Was stuck in semi-final. I can try again next year~ Well, I couldn't attend to watch because I was involved in the 'Pertandingan Literasi Sains dan Teknologi 2015' in RECSAM. Our school have got consolation prize. Anyway, go SGGS! Once a Georgian, Forever a Georgian ^^

Penang Chew Jetty

It has been a while since I visited places in Penang. One day I needed to meet a person at one of the food stall to collect a book. So, I was forced to go to the jetty. As I walked, I realized there were actually jetties - Chew Jetty, Tan Jetty and more.. I decided to go back again.

This fine Sunday morning I travel by Rapid bus to the jetty bus terminal. I walked to my left side once I walked out of the bus terminal. I kept on going until I saw this Chew jetty. I thought it was the first one but I actually missed some of the jetties.

I was at the Chew Jetty before and it was really cool. The people who lives there in their old wooden houses on water with just wooden planks, every single house sells something. I bought a keychain with my surname - Lim. They sell other stuffs like ice-cream, too!

It was before.. I went like 11 something in the morning. This time it is 7.30, where everyone just woke up. You feel the awkwardness when you walked pass their houses. Its like villagers and suddenly an alien walked into the village. People just woke up, an aunty going to the market, an uncle driving his motorbike home, another man getting ready to start his business, a little girl running around the house and two older men talking to each other.

You hear their conversation in Hokkien which sounded like "I woke up late." "Yesterday it was (something3)" "Last morning I woke up early and it was a lot.. today late already, it is lesser." "People start to come in dy." (Which I think they were talking about me..) I walked until the end of the jetty and yeah.. I saw a group of teenagers coming to take photo at Chew Jetty early in the morning, just like me.

I heard them accusing each other for waking up late. "You woke up late." "Hello, I wake up at 7am" "6.30am I woke up dy.." And I'm like.. I woke up at 5.30 just now.. I just looked at them taking pictures of the sunrise when I realized I'd forgotten my camera. Haiz... Let's use the phone to take some photos then..


The end.. I've walked pass all the people's houses. Now I reached the temple. (Even I wondered why I did not take the picture of the temple instead but the picture of the view from the temple -,-)


Sunrise <3 I realize the need to take this when I looked at the group of teenagers zooming away, focusing at the sun with their DSLR camera.


There you go, the temple :)


Sunrise.. boats.. jetty.. housing.. people.. Mr, Mrs, Miss Chews


Leaving the village, this is the I don't know what.. I think it is a temple.. which is located at the entrance of the jetty..


The Chew Jetty Kongsi


Chew Jetty :)

I walked out of the jetty, stopped and googled about this place. Let's read about it! ^^

- The biggest of the waterfront settlements in George Town
- Created in the middle of the 19th Century
- The only clan jetty left that continues to have observe the once a year annual worship of its Temple Deity and the Jade Emperor (Thnee Kong, or "god of the skies")
- Consists of a community that has existed for over a hundred years, suspended in time above the tide lines
- Consist of seven sets of wooden piers
- Home to one of the seven clans who migrated from China: the Lims, Chews, Tans, Lees, Yeohs, Koays and one mixed jetty.
