I am back to blog

Thinking and figuring for a few days, I decided to bring back the blogging moments to my life. Have been almost a year I never update my blog, I was just active more in social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Foursquare. Since I was using smartphone, the activity on blogging was really less. At last, I told myself that blogging was fun and I shouldn't give up on it!
The raining Monday at Penang Skill Development Centre (PSDC)
Well, today actually I didn't prepare any topic to write. Maybe I will just update for todays weather and today's happening? Alright, I think I will use Instagram photos to describe most of the things because it is easier and without editing it.
Last night went to grocery shopping with family and celebrated my dad's birthday! We went to mydin for a simply grocery shopping and the items there are lower price than other places. After that, went to celebrate my dad's birthday at coffee shop type restaurant. Delicious food located at Relau! :) Next post will be telling you guys what have I done in previous days, stay tuned!

Khui Thai Seaside at Teluk Kumbar

It is the seaside view again. Last year, I was like so happy when travelled to seaside! Maybe staying at seaside makes me feel more freedom! Anyway, I did my first time driving to Khun Thai Seaside. Not going for food but just for photography. I was like crazy about photography last time and until today I still love photography! :D

Khun Thai is a seafood restaurant name but for those outsiders they will called this place as Khun Thai Seaside. Anyway, the real name at here is called as Gertak Sanggul. The seaside here is very nice and the sandy beach is quite okay and the water is not that dirty like Teluk Kumbar.

Walking along the seaside, you can get better feeling instead of living under the stress in the city. This place is not blocked by any islands and the beach walkway is quite wide. It is a good place for model shooting or portrait shooting for those photographers who would like to do so.

Not to forget to visit Khun Thai seafood restaurant too as i was using their walkway to come over to the beach. Well, i think it is a great place which will full of people at night especially during holidays or weekends. I never have the dinner there but I tried it once, it nice and spicy! The original Thailand taste. 

Some decorations at the restaurant. I got a feeling like being inside the jungle which near to seaside. We could have the food inside it. How nice is it right? The good food with good place makes the perfect dinner feeling. I usually heard of many people brought their families to there! 
Lastly, this is the "Khun Thai Taxi" which placed in front of the restaurant. I don't think it can move and just the decorations outside the shop. Final conclusion, this is a good place and hope it will last long and no big development there along the beautiful seaside! :D Posted by GenYong 19.02.2013

PSDC Compound Walkabout

So far, I have enrolled myself at PSDC for almost a year already. I think 3 more months, it's officially 1 year study at here. However, PSDC is a good development centre for all the technicians and engineers. Even those who are working at factory also come over and have the improvement study. Prove that PSDC is quite a good institution to learn the skills on electrical and electronics. 
This was snapped a few months ago and I just uploaded to write out something. They are my classmates and some of them are from Butterworth which they are hardworking to drive to the island everyday. My college mates so far are friendly and have the high aim! Now in my group even having 4 person gaining the TOP 10 award in PSDC. Cool! 
The environment for PSDC is good and compare to other colleges, it was not that bad. But honestly something have to be improved as well especially the WiFi signal in the college. Others are still okay and acceptable. I love the green environment and the cafeteria service there! They served the good food.
Anyway, I hope I can have my another 1.5 years with a lot of memories in PSDC. I am looking forward for more interesting subjects coming soon in the next semester. I will try my best to study well in this college and hope to have some achievement throughout here too! PSDC is the good institution in Penang! :D Posted by GenYong 26.01.2013

Primary Classmates Hang Out

It was almost 6 years I never hang out with my primary mates and some of them even lost contact. Since I have used Facebook, I found back most of them and started to chit chat back from the primary school memories. Some of them might remember, some of them might forget as well for me too. However, on the year 2012 I recruited myself in PSDC and it's a local college that in Bayan Lepas. So most of my primary schoolmates were there and I used to have the chance to spend my life with them again. :D
#1 Here we are the BFF! This photo was snapped after having a movie "Stolen".
#2 The pretty look of Gurney Paragon.
#3 They were all my primary classmates from left, David's cousin, David, Zhao Yang, Chang Yin and Kai Lun. We used to have fun together last time in primary school.
They knew that I loved to take photos! That's why they left me at Gurney Paragon to take some structure photos! Seriously, I love to see those amazing building designs. Do you have the same interest too? Btw, from my comments, I like Gurney Paragon and I believe it will be rocking in Penang this 2013! 
Here we came to Gurney Plaza, we were like nothing to do after the movie. Just walk outside the mall and have some look on the seaview. Looking people arounds take some photos and just like that. Quite bored? Hahaha, because boys are usually not shopping one! :P
I seldom been to Gurney Plaza, and it was really changed from time to time. Gurney Plaza management keep on expanding the mall. Increased more parking spaces for shoppers and of course increased more shoplots too! I just realize that those restaurants have gathered at the pathway between Gurney Plaza and G Hotel.

Here my comments, so far Gurney Plaza is still the TOP shopping complex in Penang, do you agree? :D Posted by GenYong 25.01.2013

Study at Jing-Zi Books & Cafe

Hello readers, I am sorry for long time not updating my blog. It was like since last year December until now. Here come the year 2013 and I am here wishing everyone Happy New Year 2013! May all the best on your success and achievements as well. For myself, this year I am targeting to be better in my studies and also my part time job. :D
Actually this blog post was postponed due to my packed schedule and no time to blog for it. Well, I hope you don't mind to read it now. This was happened during last October which I was having my final exam for the subjects of Malaysian Studies and Morale Studies at college. Hence, my friend has invited me to the study zone and recommend me to be there.
#1 The tea and coffee menu all for only RM5.00
It is Jing-Zi Books & Cafe which located at Beach Street, Penang. We were there for around 4 hours to cope up with our studies after lunch. It is a nice place to have the own revision or group discussion. The environment was pretty cool and the air conditioned big hall makes me feel like staying at a house in China.
That time was the SPM revision period that's why we saw a lot of SPM 2012 candidates busy for their study preparation too. The place is opened to public as well it also attracted some tourists to have a break at there, reading some books and have a chilling moment with some tea.
We were studying at there for almost 4 hours and it is really a good environment to study. You can sit there from the morning until the afternoon and enjoy the tea as well. After tired studying, you can even walk out to the beach street for exercising... I have tried this, you may too... :D Posted by GenYong 05.01.2013

Bukit Jambul Lakeside Town

Penangites, do you heard before Bukit Jambul? Bukit Jambul is located at the district of Bayan Lepas as a zone surrounding with Bayan Baru FTZ area. Bukit Jambul actually is a small hill which full of the bungalows nowadays. On top of the hill still contain of one resort Hotel Equatorial, INTI College, Fairview International School, USM campus and many more. The Bukit Jambul hill is now well developed!
I went there after dropping my friend back to his house at Lakeside Tower. Since I had the camera with me, so I tried to capture down the nice picture from the lake and look for the reflection mode. It was nice and the reflection is really like printed on the surface of water.
It's a lake which contain of fish and some natural phenomenons. It's a good place for those residents to do their exercise like jogging and maybe some recreation activities. The place is yet quiet and you can enjoy the sound of the lake water as well.

Lakeside Towers were built on around year 1994 which was the 1st project by IJM Land at Bukit Jambul. As well the land there is now developed with another 4 high rise towers which called as Park View and also Alpine Tower. The whole project involved 6 towers which facing the view of Sungai Ara and Relau.

This is Park View Tower! 

I have taken the photos from the Fairview International School (formerly known as Lake Plaza). 

The Alpine Tower which is the latest project by IJM Land.

Fairview International School is the most latest spot at there. The building is formerly known as Lake Plaza which developed for the shopping retailing hotspot. I think maybe it's due to the low marketing level and caused the Lake Plaza ended up with no business and turned into an International School.

Yes the Super Condo... Alpine Tower. I like the design and also the colour too! It was the amazing design for the year of 2000-2006 which those building design is not yet that modern. Alright, Alpine Tower, Park View Towers and also Lakeside Towers, are you living there? If yes, can share something with me? :D I really missed that lake! Posted by GenYong 09.12.2012
