The 'beach' at Porthcawl front. Always looks as though the sand has recently been washed away.

So I haven't. Funny thing is, I don't remember the castle having a moat.

This window sees the view Turner saw from his studio window in the early 19th century.

Relau used to be a very sleepy place but now it is as though a completely new town is being built around us. We are off to the UK for 4+ months come Monday. Lord knows what the Relau will have become on our return. This is the new wet market and food court 5 mins walk from our place. Guess this will be open when we get back.
And then there is the second Penang island road bridge, scheduled to be open to the public in October or may be September, they are ahead of schedule. Around 26 KM. That is one long bridge which snakes across the Penang straits, not straight at all. Very appropriate in the year of the snake to have a snaking bridge. Wonder if the planners arrange for this to be so?
What was PISA is now SPICE and is coming on nice. When we return there is likely to be a very big hole in the ground in the centre of this picture. All the conference facilities are to be underground, a reversal of normal construction practice; garden on top accommodation underneath.
And this strange building on the road junction opposite the Public Bank. There is no picture board to show the architects vision so we have been left guessing as to what the heck is going on the top of this concrete monster. Very strange it is.
Finally but by no means the last, The Golden Triangle. We are learning a lot about construction practice by eying the guys working here through our binoculars each day. With the low cost housing being built at the same time behind the G T, there are 8 cranes working , sometimes to past 11 at night, and come rain or shine. Don't know how the guys stand it. I would be a goner after one day up there.
