“In family life, love is the oil that eases friction, the cement that binds closer together, and the music that brings harmony.” - Eva Burrows
I am down with Flu, Fever and Cough. After medication, I found that I was too tired physically and mentally to come up with any Inspirational post.
Anyway, let me share with you all some photos of my happy moments with my family in the recent trip up to Penang.
On the 15th of October 2007, we went up to Penang Hill also known as Bukit Bendera.
During school holidays and weekends, the funicular train can be very crowded with long queues. Luckily, it was not crowded that day.
The funicular train is a two levels system. Each level has two tram coaches linked by a cable and pulley. The tram coaches will pass each other at a junction. There is a "Middle Station" where passengers alight and transfer to the other level system. Train arrives every 15 minutes. A total of 30 minutes to get to the top of the Penang Hill.
We had reached the top. It was time for photo taking. Well, I was not in this photo because I was the photographer.
At about 830 metres (2,750 feet) from sea level, the temperature on the hilltop is considerably cooler than the city below.
We walked 1.7km to get to Canopy Walk, which is a suspension bridge hanging over the treetops.
From this photo, which was taken using zoom, you can see that I was so far behind my family. I was actually spending time taking photographs of monkeys, squirrels and scenery of the jungle. Well, my wife and children were impatiently waiting for me. It was indeed a long walk.
Finally, we had reached and tried the 200m Canopy Walk. It was indeed cool!
We had to walk 1.7km back after the Canopy Walk. We were exhausted on the way back and we took a short rest.
On the way back, I found a safe place for my camera. Therefore, we took a couple of photos using the camera's self-timer feature.
From the top of the Hill, we can see the Penang Bridge. The bridge is among the longest bridges in the world.
We had a wonderful time for sure!
I hope you have a joyful time with your family too.
Blessings to all readers.
