Now that I have you attention, can I have your 1 minute? I am currently participating in a JUMPFACE campaign where the winner wins away a 10,000 feet skydiving experience. The winner is chosen according the number of votes. To put it simple, the contestant with the highest votes wins! Since the prize is too attractive, thus the contestants are very competitive. I need to get as many help as I can so I need your vote!
The contest ends on 3 January 2015, which is another two more weeks to go. The system allows the voter to vote for the same person once a day. So I would like to have your 1 minute everyday to vote for me. It would be great if you can help me share this news to your friends and family. I really appreciate your help!
Please vote for me (Liew Chi Khong) at this link –> https://seeties.me/jump/547e2983576133047d8b45b8

This is a fisherman village (I don’t know the name of this village) located at the Teluk Bahang, not far away from the Teluk Bahang Dam and is located few hundred meters away from the National Park. The scenes at there are so beautiful that you will wanna stay at there for quite some time. Too bad that we reached there quite late (around 6pm) and it was quite dark already. The photos taken aren’t so nice, but do hope that can give you a view of this beautiful place.
This is my first time being there and I was completely attracted by the breath taking scene!!! I wish that I could go there again very soon, not to take photos but to jog, relax and enjoy the beautiful scene. 😀
This Ghee Hup Nutmeg Factory is run by Mr. Chang Kun Mim. It is located at Balik Pulau (of the Teluk Bahang area) in Penang. Mr. Chang has revolved in this business since he was 15 in 1953.

Blue : Drum performance during the Penang Bon Odori Festival 2012This is a photo taken at the Penang Bon Odori 2012. The team is a group of Japanese people and they are performing the drum performance. This is my very first time seeing live drum performance by the Japanese people and I love it very much! they way they play the drum, they way they enjoyed the performance and their spirit really inspired me! Click here for more photos of Panang Bon Odori 2012.
Green : An artist drawing the beautiful heritage site of Georgetown, PenangThis photo was captured on my visit to Penang Georgetown during the celebration of the Fourth Georgetown Festival. Many artist gather at there and drawing their masterpiece of the beautiful Georgetown. Looking at their work, wow, it just looks so real! It was really a great experience for me to be able to meet with so many artist and see them draw live. There are many other events going on during the celebration. To see more of them, please click here.
Yellow : A gigantic statue at Kek Lok Si TempleThis photo was taken during my visit to the Penang Kek Lok Si, the largest Buddhist Temple in Southeast Asia. This statue, together with another one which is opposite of it is located at the front of the biggest statue, the statue of the Goddess of Mercy, Kuan Yin in the temple. I am not quit sure what is the role of this two statue, but judging from their position, I believe that they are guarding the Goddess of Mercy. just by looking at this statue, I can feel the aggressive aura from it. It looks fierce and it is one that you wouldn’t want to offend in your life. There are more photos of the Kek Lok Si Temple that I have captured, you can see them at here.
White : The windowThis photo was taken at Georgetown, Penang. The first sight I saw this window, I have the strong feeling that it was worth the shot. And yes, I am right. I like it’s texture which give me an feeling that it is a very old window. In fact it is.
Red : Penang Clan Jetty of the Tan ClanThis is a photo I captured at the Penang Clan Jetty of the Tan Clan. I love to shoot at a low angle and this photo is definitely suit the low angle. I love the way the small red house is located as if it become the main object in the photos and not the bridge. Sadly, I heard from my friend saying that the small red house is destroyed. I am lucky to have shoot it before it was being destroyed. For more of the Penang Clan Jetty photos, please click here.
Now, I will nominate 5 bloggers to take part in the competition.
1. Hua Wei at huawei89photography.

Oh gosh! I think I have fall in love with Penang Georgetown. Today I went there for the third time in this week. Of course, I went with another friend. We walked for around 8 hours at Georgetown. The photos below are the photos that my friend took for me and I wish to share with all of you. 😀 Hope you will like it as I really jumped quite a few times just to take these two shots. The worst case is, I got my hand and my leg bleeding but it worth the pain!
This is one of the famous wall drawing by Ernest Zacharevic at the Armenian Street. This talented artist has added colour to this wonderful Georgetown of Penang. There are a total of 5 drawing so far and I managed to find all of them. 😀
Another walk and shoot experience for me. This time I went to the Penang Clan Jetties which has a very old history. The houses are all built above the water. Clan Jetties, as the name sounds, the people are living within their own clan (long ago, not sure for now) and each clan has their own house built along a long path (which we called it a jetty) on the water. Be sure to visit this awesome place the next time you visit Penang 😀
Temple Kek Lok Si is a must-go-place for tourists and today I have went there alone. It was a really great experience and now I get what it mean by a must-go-place. Really a plce not to miss if you happen to visit Penang one day.
