Letter to the Editor


I thoroughly enjoyed the August issue, reading it from cover to cover when our family chanced upon a copy.

As a Singapore-based Penangite shuttling between the two city states, it deliciously satisfies the instant craving for meaty info. It helps me catch up quickly on the interesting people, places and events of my beloved hometown. (It reminded me nostalgically of the precious defunct Pulau Pinang magazine, copies of which I have bound in leather in my Singapore home.)

This August issue provided a rewarding read on serious issues like the constitution and the Orang Asli, plus lively personal updates on the Youth Park (Anwar Fazal), Tan Choon Gee's art (Ooi Kok Chuen) and a feature-cum-review by Louise Goss-Custard of Mike Gibby’s recent Penang Hill title, which I had received as a wonderful birthday present in Singapore.

Even an ad on Pilot Studies on a New Penang made me want to rush out to get a copy. (Regrettably it is not easily available here.)

And the magazine is free! What more can anyone ask for? Penang is a paradise in more ways than you can imagine, says this Singapore PR.
