hello Maurice, I read your first message as soon as you posted it because the software informs me by email. To set the date for Thaipusam, they do some celestial gazing and I think it is too early for anyone to confirm the date for next year. I usually get the date from the Waterfall Temple near the Botanic Garden and when I run pass that place the next time, I will stop and ask them. Anyway Thaipusam has always been Jan/Feb in Penang. I will give you the exact date as soon as I can :-)

Maurice, during your time here, Penang was truly the "natural" Pearl of the Orient. Plenty of green and nature took precedence. Today, some say it is overdeveloped and the island is a concrete jungle. But to me, this island still shines ..... maybe not like a natural pearl anymore but like those artificially cultured pearls made famous by Mikimoto.

hello Maurice, almost all the bigger hotels can arrange for your wife's sister and husband to renew their wedding vows. Just inform the hotel and they will fix everything Smile
