Beautiful pictures, Zainal. Pictures of Gurney Drive always bring back memories of my childhood, about 60 years ago, when I used to spend my school holidays holidays in Penang. We stayed in our family bungalow in Tanjong Bungah and sometimes in a friend's family mansion on Gurney Drive. What a fun time we children had, swimming in the sea at Tanjong Bungah and Gurney Drive. The water then was pristine and unpolluted.Nowadays I dare not even put my toes into the water! Gurney Drive was then known as 'Millionaires' Row' with all mansions of the rich situated there. Most of the old mansions are still there and now listed as heritage buildings.
What a pity you couldn't spend more time at Gunung Jerai. Used to be a favourite place of mine. Have not been there for years but a planned trip is coming up soon when the weather gets better.
