Kawanbike at work

Trail work
It's time to get those muscles working again after so many 'cycless' days due
to heavy downpours. Armed with an axe, a parang & a pruning saw,
we hit the trail & had lots of fun doing the trail work.


No late outing...No mountain/jungle biking...No camping...No fishing...Oh No!!!

It's that time of the year again, the 7th month of the lunar calendar or better known as 'Ghost Month', in which ghosts and spirit come out from the hell & wander the earth. It's also regarded as the most ill-fated time of the year. During this bad time most people suspend all important activities & decisions.

Sounds scary isn't it? As a matter of fact, 'Ghost Month' also known as 'Hungry Ghost Festival'. Just as Halloween is for Americans, the 'Hungry Ghost Festival' is for the Chinese in Penang. For those who have never heard of this festival, Click this!

Those nasty scars on CS's calf served as a reminder to me that i should either

ride with extremely cautious or just observe the 'Ghost Month' taboos.

Penang Char Koay Teow

On 14th February 2009, this popular Penang hawker dish has been declared as a traditional delicacy among other 172 items under the National Heritage listing.

To me, Char Koay Teow is more than just a famous hawker dish in penang. It's the culture, history & memories that make this simple delicacy so special.
I've been a great
fan of CKT for as long as i can remember. I still remember those days when my buddy & me have to cycle through dark, scary & dogs infested kampung (village) roads just to get to our favorite CKT stall for supper.

Today, i don't have to go through those ordeal for CKT anymore. I can drive or even ride a motorbike
, but i guess i still prefer the old way to get my Char koay Teow.
