Bukit Genting at dusk

 We returned to the hill...at dusk.

 Lights coming on all over the plain.

 As dark came the fishing fleet lights appeared on the horizon.

The garden takes on a very eerie quality in the dark!!!

Penang Philharmonic.

This is totally amateur group of classical music enthusiasts....and they are damned good!!!  We attended their recent concert at the E & O's ballroom (not in pic).

Edvard Grieg: Peer Gynt Suite No.1, 
Franz Joseph Haydn: Cello Concerto No.1 in C major
Antonin Dvorak: Symphony No.6 in D major.

Impressive yes?  Russian night at the end of December.  Tickets  bought already.

Bukit Genting, Penang style.

 A new place to us.

 See Rock and Pat visited Penang this weekend and with a hired car we were able to visit this hill.

 Fab views and lovely Thai food for lunch,

 with some weird and wonderful models.

Viewing sunsets are feature of the hill with the park curios lit after dark.  Must return to see the show.

Relau night lights. View from the 11th floor.

 An evening beer, feet up on the balcony watching other peoples lives as they go by.

 With the food stalls doing business well into the early hours of the morning.

And to feed the mind,  a brand new college about to open.  Love Bahasa Malay.  Kolej Komuniti.  We need to spell this way. I for one would find writing in my own language a little easier.

Our New Bridge.

 Well, now I am really settled here.  Our bridge, indeed!!  But it is on track to be ready 2013.

 Close up you can see the road platform and the machine making it.  Magic.

And it appears there will be two parts that ships can pass under.  This one is just south of the airport.  Pictures taken from our condo roof.  First clear day for weeks.  Rain, Rain and then more rain.  But thankfully no floods.

 Gek has turned her brush to faces.

 A little more than life size on 20in x 16in canvases.

In oils, of course.  No prizes for knowing the first and last image.  Chris in the middle.
