This pic makes me miss Penang more. Are the myriad hawker stalls still allowed to operate along the Esplanade in the evenings?

The hawkers have all been moved to a new hawker complex just next to where they used to operate in the open. To me the charm is gone. Always good to eat under a tree and make a dash for shelter when it rains Smile Have you sat along the seawall of the E & O Hotel? Guaranteed romance there!

Kayes, that goes without saying. Wink And there were also those slow dances up at the revolving nightclub at the Continental Hotel.

Last Thursday night I sat at the E & O Hotel's seawall, at that end nearest the pool. It was wonderful.

Hi Kayes,


I am presently here in the UK experiencing less than comfortable temperatures, and there you are taunting me with descriptions of warmth and happiness, with perhaps a frisson of romance thrown in along the Esplanade at the sea wall at the 'E & O' Hotel, a fine establishment if ever.


Lovely picture, and so reminescent of my time this time last year when my beloved Margaret bought some Durian for a first time experience, and sat along the very sea wall shown and consumed durian with my dear friend Dickey Lam's daughter, Jo-Anna Lam, thank you for the memory 'Kayes'. We'll be back in 2009.

hi Norman, the weather is cool and nice here presently. We get some rain and we get some sun. Those in love also get lots of opportunities for romancing since the tropical weather does not really urge you to stay indoors and the seawall of the E & O is a beautiful place to be Smile
