Penang photographs

Batu Ferringhi beach

Casuarina Hotel's poolside

Vapour trail of a jet aircraft

These monkeys were copulating just 2 seconds before I clicked the shutter.
I think they were doing it doggie style.

The Teluk Bahang dam

The greenish water in the foreground is the dam's contents, the light brown strip is the dam embankment, and the dark blue bit beyond is the sea

For a fee, one can ride on one of these things along the beach

Alley downstairs; living quarters upstairs

Kek Lok Si temple

This last image was really not necessary was it? :p

Edited 8pm:
Sonia said in the comments: Try imagining Yee Wei bending down (really near) to take a pic of the horse's penis. LOL...

Please do not do as Sonia says. I was actually squatted quite far away (perhaps 3 metres) and all I had to do was to zoom in (remember that this camera has 12x zoom) and depress the shutter release.

Yuan Harng:
sadly, pretty young things are not available. Most (all, actually) of them in Penang at this time are senior citizens and with loose over-tanned skin. Shudder.

Ah Pek:
No beautiful girls along the beaches la... I was quite surprised also.

So, you like horse balls one is it?

Yeah, optical zoom is done using the lenses, but digital is just enlarging a part of the existing image. As a consequence, digital zoom cannot make use of the full resolution of the camera's sensor, and may result in grainy photos.

Go on, it's you who'll be having horse penis nightmares!

lol have fun :)
