Hi Kayes , conflicting reports on what is happening in BF and I am sure you are the person to get a definitive answer !
Question , what is happening or happened to all the shops etc from the new Mosque up towards the Casuarina ?
Have been told that they have been or will be demolished to make way for housing / condos !
Have tried various people but phones , landline , are no longer being answered .
Any pictures will be greatly appreciated .
Hope to be back for a short visit early September ,was hoping to stay at Hard Rock but this is not opening until 19/09/2009 .
Thanks in anticipation Alan

The shops in that area you mentioned have been demolished which are those on the "beach side". Those on the other side of the road (i.e. Happy Garden side) are all intact. Below are two pics:-

Hi Kayes , any news on what is or is not going to happen to this vacant lot ?
Prime real estate with no return , perhaps like here in the UK the owners are putting into a landbank hoping for a better return in the future .
Are there any hotspots now in Batu Ferringhi ?
Should have been there in Feb uary but had to return to UK now ready to pick up our travels , back in 2 weeks time , sure will be amazed at all the changes .
Hello to all that know us and those that are in Penang see you soon
