VIPs On Wheels

Do you know what the trending use for the acronym VIP is around here? It stands for Visually Impaired Person.

Not that they aren’t important, of course.

Here are some snapshots of these VIPs out and about on two wheels:

Riding To Bagan Serai

To Bagan Serai & Beyond

Penang Permatang Tinggi Church Cycling

In September of 2017, we decided to explore the townships of Bagan Serai and Kuala Kurau in the northern Perak region.

We started off in Penang, from the Butterworth ferry terminal, and made our way south along the old trunk road.

Woooah, straight down!

You end up passing a lot of little towns and palm plantations.

The roads were straight and the traffic low, and the locals probably weren’t as accustomed to hordes of cyclists passing through.

I hobbled my way to the nearest hardware store; thankfully this town appeared well accustomed to servicing passing vehicles. However, these vehicles tended to be of the larger variety, so I had to MacGuyver together some tube levers and a patch from keys and some decent duct tape.

Fortunately, the hardware store had a powerful pump and soon I was off on my merry way.

Bagan Serai is a relatively simple town that I suppose is known for food, apart from being a hub town for the surrounding area.

Nothing much to see there, really. Lots of shops though.

After Bagan Serai, it’s a quick 15km jaunt over to the coastal town of Kuala Kurau.

Now Kuala Kurau is much more interesting.

Kuala Kurau is a bustling little port town by the sea, with some quaint little bridges spanning the delta.

It appears to be a town with some history – old, weather-worn buildings; typical salty fishing shacks; new, stone temples and bungalows.

And just out of town was where our true destination lay: My Homestay 21.

Located literally in the middle of a palm plantation, deep in Kampung Lian Seng, is a large expanse of pomelo orchards and sturdy houses with a thriving Chinese population.

So we came along to feast on the pomelos, but stayed around to support (morally) the kind medical doctors that were there to offer free medical check-ups to the local residents.

Let your figurines come to life!

And down the back you have a quieter, more well-equipped area for figurine enthusiasts to work on their models and miniatures.

So in short (bit late for that, perhaps), this is one of the most well-equipped and designed board game shops in Penang, with a roomy and relaxing environment and fun for the whole family!

Of course it also helps to be one of the only board game shops left in Penang. Actually, I can’t think of another one off the top of my head, so I guess it really is best!
