Good to see this very old and neglected beach bungalow being restored. Must be the new owners. In the 60s, you could rent this bungalow. I have forgotten its name but many people call it the "house of the galloping ghost" because there was this ghost on a horse that would gallop around the house.

It is very close to the road. A wayward Kancil might land in the dining room Smile

Interesting trivia about the galloping ghost, Kayes. It looks like the house and its outbuildings would be needing really extensive restoration work. Is this place near Tanjung Bungah?

hi Phoebe, this galloping ghost house is between Tanjong Bungah and Batu Ferringhi. Opposite the road, on a hill, is the mansion of the late Jimmy Yeap of Ban Hin Lee Bank. It is my personal opinion that this galloping ghost house was once owned by a successful jockey who just couldn't stop riding Smile

funnily enuf, was talking about this house on the phone - the ghost we heard as teenagers took the form of someone appearing on the rear seat of bicycle (or motorbike) seen by someone else as they passed by this house late at night. Am interested in the galloping ghost tale (not aware of this "form"), please can you describe it Kayes? And what will become of this house? Thanks

Hi Kayes, In Penang on our holidays for the next three months. Was horrified to see the old 'Australian Hostel' has been demolished, is there nothing sacred left on the island anymore!!!!

hi Derrick and welcome back to the Pearl of the Orient. Enjoy the island in the sun :-)


By the way, someone at the club told me the original name of this bungalow was "Adorable". Can anyone confirm this?

You are correct Kayes, we were visiting a friend in Miami Green a few days ago and he confirmed your suspicions that this house was indeed called 'Adorable'

First met the 'adorable' Joanna Tan from Green Lane here at a party in 1969. She'll be in her mid sixties now but, I'm sure, still as lovely. Fond memories....

Gosh, I hope she doesn't! No I don't mean that.... All good here kayes, thank you - I trust all good with you. We must do another Malaysia trip sometime - seven years since the last one.

hi Lee, you should make a trip back here soon. Despite all the high rise buildings, George Town and the rest of the island remain very recognisable. A major part of George Town has been recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site and therefore, the present architecture will have to be preserved. Let me know if I can help plan your next trip Smile
