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

Mc Cafe at Penang International Airport

Mc Donald Malaysia had launched their new business project on coffee which named as Mc Cafe. Mc Cafe is actually founded at the Mc Donald International Headquarter at US which is expanded widely starting from this year. Most of the branded franchising network will first drop by to KL first and spread to nationwide in Malaysia.  
Mc Donald had expanded the first Mc Cafe to Penang International Airport. It's a pride for Penangites which can have the chance to try out the brand new coffee from Mc Donald. Now Mc Donald is expanding as variety F&B outlet which served fast foods, drinks, ice creams and now coffee too! Nice one.
Mc Cafe served the great coffee like Coffee Bean and Starbucks too... They provided the Latte series, Cappuccino series, Frappuccino series and many more! The most great one is every coffee pricing is from RM 5.90... it's much cheaper than others! :D
Well, Mc Donald is expanding their business from kids until the all-aged F&B. As I always visit Mc Donald at Penang International Airport, I could see that the most crowded place is Mc Donald. Mc Donald has more than 20 outlets in Penang and the most great one is at Greenlane! Students' all time favourite... after school, ice cream time! Do you like that too? Posted by GenYong 03.12.2012

Random Visit to Teluk Kumbar

I got a friend living at Teluk Kumbar, on last semester I used to fetch her home after class. Well, she is my primary school mates and also my local friend too. After dropped her home, I went to Teluk Kumbar seaside to take a look for the beautiful scenery.
I wonder that the little seaside estate was well developed as the modern living housing estate called as Sunway Aspera. The houses at there were directly faced to the sea and in front of that having a service road which can see the seaview and enjoy the sunbath too...
The pretty seaview of Teluk Kumbar. You can view it widely at here. Better advice is come during sunset, because the sun is really bright, perhaps you can snap some photographs of sunset living too! :D
The developer Sunway Properties has planted the conifer plants at the sea side and tends to make it as a little "Gurney Drive". I liked the environment there which you can witness those fishermen how they capture the fish and you can even buy the fresh raw seafood from them. There is also famous for fresh raw prawns!
I snapped myself before I left the beautiful place which near to my hometown. I hope this place is not over developed and the fisherman jetty should maintain and the kampung village should upgrade as well. The friendly people and the pretty environment especially beautiful sandy beach should be maintained! I Love Teluk Kumbar, do you? Posted by GenYong 29.11.2012

Mural Arts Wall Painting TShirts

I was sorry for no update for my blog post in those days as I was busy working at Planet Popcorn Gurney Plaza. The tiring but yet happy working experience was really cool, I will share it out in the following blog post. Show you guys some photos out from there too!
I think most of the people know that this year there were many mural arts wall painting around the heritage site in Penang. Those artworks were perfectly done by Ernest Zacharevic, the cool artist! I really admire on his effort in those wall paintings and he makes the Georgetown turn alive.
I went to Chew Jetty for supporting my friend for their TShirts. Actually they were making the shirts with the permission from the originate mural arts wall painting artist, Ernest. They are Henry Chew and Kyle Tan who were my Chung Ling schoolmates. They are talented and creative in mind thinking of making a shirt for the tourists to purchase on it... business minded! :D
Here is their business place, it is just right in front of Henry Chew's grandma house at Chew Jetty. They are selling the shirts for RM20 each which attracted a lot of tourists purchased from them. They called themselves as ELANOO as a company and those part of the Tshirts profit will be donated to Children Protection Society.
After purchased the shirts, you can even snap one of the mural arts collection in the Chew Jetty. Besides that there is a little shipyard for small boats to land at there too. It's a good place to snap for beautiful scenery.
In weekends there are a lot of visitors came in the jetty and take a look or maybe snap photos. They are wonder that how come Penang has such kind of special place which the residents can live on the water and there was a lively community there. Besides that, some of them were even offer the resident to start up their boats and offer them a ride around the Esplanade area. It was pretty cool and I was glad to see that Chew Jetty is well maintained!
Mr Henry Chew, CEO/Founder of ELANOO.
Mr Kyle Tan, CEO/Founder of ELANOO.
The young entrepreneurs making their creativity into a business. It's a good job for them and I was proud of my schoolmates have achieve such business level and start to earn money. Actually I did sell Tshirts too, but the respond is not as good as them. Well, there is something else I should learn out from them! So I wish them having a good business and also the good studies as well! :D
Walking out the Chew Jetty, let me think of the view of my kampung at Bayan Lepas. I really hope those kampung houses can be restored in good conditions and hope that teenagers like me love to live in kampung more than in cities. The natural one is always the best! :D Posted by GenYong 23.11.2012

Planet Popcorn Poster (20 days) designed by me
I was designed quite a lot of posters for the Planet Popcorn Gurney Plaza before their opening. Guess what?Because it is another store that opened by my boss! The same boss as La Kaffa and Chatime. I was his worker and I played my role on promoting and sharing too. I love design and I try my designing skill on those posters. Not bad right? xD
Designs from Day 19-Day 10
All those posters are done by myself! Flashback for my artworks, I feel so glad and proud of myself! LOL. I know my design ain't good and I am still learning on more advance designing skill. Even myself also can't believe I can make it... Too bad until 10 days counting down the FB Page Planet Popcorn Gurney Plaza was joined into Planet Popcorn Malaysia and I have no more chance to post up my productions there!

It's alright, I still can post on my timeline. Not a big problem! Well, talk back about the Planet Popcorn Gurney Plaza. We are having the opening soon! Penangites do check it out for more details! :D
