Notre maison

On the edge of the sea, a sunny, airy bright 3-bedroom condo called Sri Golden Bay.

Our condo unit is 2,880 sq foot in size. The condo has an elevated private swimming pool and overlooks the sea - facing the Straits of Malacca- where sunsets can be stupendous. There are two patios with vintage cane chairs for easy reading, sipping mojitos or just watching the glorious sun set.

The Master Bedroom is very large with a king-sized bed, and a two-seater sofa for watching telly. The ensuite bathroom has a jacuzzi for an evening soak as well as shower stall for quick showers.

Another cozy bedroom has a queen sized bed with ensuite bathroom and toilet which is usually reserved as a guest room for singles or another couple.

The third room is used as an art studio-cum-computer room..

The living room is bright and airy with comfortable sofas and even a massage bed for in-house private massage which is very inexpensive in Penang. In fact, we have 2 such beds and it is quite an experience to have massages in your own home while listening to the sound of waves in the distance.

Two kitchens serve your cooking needs (but who needs to cook in Penang?):
one for easy food preparation around an oriental marble table with 6 chairs and the other for serious chopping and frying with proper exhaust stove facilities.

An elevator ride downstairs brings you onto the beach in 1 minute; or, if you prefer the swimming pool. There's also a BBQ pit you can rent by the pool. The pool is also surrounded with greenery and easy chairs for sunning and reading. Walk on the beach early in the morning and get to meet a community of dog lovers walking their pets or in the evenings, and catch a glimpse of monitor lizards or, otters.

    He began by focusing his time and skills on executive coaching and counselling, a job which has given him complete satisfaction for the last 16 years! He now works as independent training consultant around Asia, so he has flexibility to travel and enjoy!

Where is it?

Votre Quartier

Penang Island is on the west coat of Malaysia.
It was named Prince of Wales Island when it was occupied by the British East India Company on 12 August 1786, in honor of the birthday of the Prince of Wales, later King George IV.
The capital, George Town, was named after the reigning King George III.

Penang's extremely rich with multicultural history of Malay, Chinese, Indian and European influences. This has resulted in Penang is also well known for being the "Street Food Paradise" of Malaysia.

You will find many attractive pre-Second World War houses and shop houses, as well as 19th century churches, temples, mosques, and colonial buildings. Hence, George Town is now gazetted as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Other areas like Batu Ferringhi are popular with white sandy beaches, luxurious hotels & restaurants, a favorite spot for both locals & tourists or Balik Pulau a small town nestled among Malay villages, fruit orchards, and padi fields.

Others like Teluk Bahang, a quiet little fishing village at the northwestern tip of the island and Tanjung Bungah used to be a fishing village but now is a resort area with large hotels and residential condos built along the beach.

Georgetown contains a melange of late 19th century colonial and settler architecture, texturized by a community that still maintains a traditional way of urban life. For walking, highlights include Armenian Street, Pitt Street, Love Lane, Little India, the esplanade and Beach Road. Within this area, the Khoo Kongsi clan temple, Kapitan Keling Mosque, and Pinang Peranakan Mansion are highlights.

Further towards Penang Road, the Cheong Fatt Tze mansion on Leith Street exemplifies early Chinese courtyard houses is also a favorite.

Penang Hill probably has the best view of Georgetown especially at night. At the summit, you can take a leisurely stroll, or ride a buggy, along a track that runs for about 1km into residences built around turn of the 20th century.

The Penang Botanic Gardens were established by Charles Curtis of Britain way back in 1884; it's generally known as the Waterfall Gardens by the local community because of a little waterfall located within it. Many locals will come to the gardens to perform their daily exercises like walking, jogging, jungle trekking, aerobic dance, and to practice Tai Chi, or Qi Gong. The garden hosts an annual international floral fest as well as a world music festival.

Another highlight (though I do not myself frequent) is Snake Temple, built in 1850 in memory of the renowned Chinese monk Chor Soo Kong. The Snake Temple is situated in the small town of Bayan Lepas on the edge of a highway and is famous for the fact that it has pit vipers living within the temple grounds. Legend has it that Chor Soo Kong, who was also a healer, gave shelter to the snakes of jungle. After the completion of the temple, snakes appeared on their own accord. Today, the snake population of the Temple of the Azure Cloud is very small, due to the urbanization of the area, but you can still see them coiled up on the altar tables, and you can touch them, if you are brave enough. Originally, the snakes were said to be rendered harmless by the smell of the burning incense, but today, to be safe, the resident vipers are devenomed. There is a snake museum beside the temple where there are snakes galore and you can see a staff member occasionally handling an albino Burmese python.
