Letter to the Editor


Thank you for the great articles that really do bring back so many memories. I am now a resident of Perth, Australia, and since being introduced to Penang Monthly, I have encouraged my friends who are ex-Penangites to sign up with your magazine.

One article that I particularly enjoyed was “The History of Bukit Mertajam” – more so because my late father was a BM boy and though I was living in Penang with my grandparents, holidays were all spent in BM. My dad used to take me to the market; I recall the altars put up to the gods on their various feast days. I also walked up to the filtration plant on the hill. Though Bukit Mertajam High School was my rival where sports were concerned, I did have many friends from the quarters of the District Hospital.
