Bukit Mertajam Penang

What do we know about Penang?

What do we know about Penang?

Penang was formerly under Kedah territory before becoming a British-ruled state, and it has been separate ever since. It was developed as a trading port and became especially diverse. It was for a time the only Malaysian state with a Chinese majority population.

Aside from the three major ethnic groups of Malays, Chinese, and Indians, it also brought in migrants from other Southeast Asian countries like Siam and Burma. Some families and communities have maintained their traditional trades and crafts to the present day in Georgetown, like the Indian-Muslim songkok makers and the Chinese puppeteers.

The Eurasian community are the descendants of locals who married European colonists. They had their own village of Kampung Serani. The word Serani is from the Arabic Nasrani, originally meaning Nazarene. In Malay it was used for Christians, and Eurasians in particular

My favourite 3 delicacies in Bukit Mertajam are Curry Mee, BM Yam Rice, and Beef Noodles from Sentosa.

The curry noodles are slightly spicy, genuine Chinese-style curry with pork blood and cockle.

BM Yam Rice is a mixed pig organ soup with meatballs and bits of almost every part of a pig.

Beef Noodles (specifically Koay Teow Soup)

There’s an ongoing argument saying that Mainland Penang isn’t really Penang.
It’s a joke! Without the mainland, the island wouldn’t have enough water (from Sg. Muda and Mengkuang Dams)

Penang retains a lot of the colonial-era British architecture, especially in the Georgetown area, to the point where it’s taken for granted by residents. Many of the old buildings have been repurposed, sometimes losing their character in the process. More local architecture is mostly visible in the places of worship, and the Chinese clanhouses. Penang has an abundance of mosques, churches, temples, and shrines, sometimes within walking distance of each other.

Cross-cultural influence is apparent in the Chinese reverence for the datuk keramat, originally a Malay animist practice. The older mosques in Penang are mostly built in the Indian-Muslim style, which blends Persianate and Central Asian mosque architecture.

Port Dickson

1344 km trip November 2023

I made a trip from Penang to Bidor (pun chun wanton noodles) to Setiawan to Lumut to Teluk Intan to Port Dickson to Melaka to Klang (bak kut teh) and finally Kuala Lumpur .

Total distance was 1344.8km and RM 163 was spent on fuel so that’s 79.5 litres. So my mileage is 16.9km/litre of 80% highway 20% city driving on my 2017 Perodua Bezza 1.3. Not too shabby yea?

Bidor was fun. We had Pun Chun on the first trip and another roadside stall for the 2nd time. My friend preferred Pun Chun saying the prawn in the wanton was more satisfying.

Went to a lunch at Yan Bin Ge Restaurant, Setiawan. The curry prawns was good. Gu Lou Yoke was nice too.

Lumut is the town where you take a ferry to Pangkor. There are hourly boats to Pangkor and there were not many people when we were there.

Boat ride was RM12, but we had other plans to visit the south.

There’s a leaning tower at Teluk Intan

Also went to Port Dickson and Melaka. PD was quiet as it was a weekday. Most tourist come on weekends only. At Melaka, we had a few recommendations (new vlog and blogpost coming next week 10 Nov) on recommendations by friends for food.

Follow me on Instagram:

Follow me on TikTok:

Avoid Jonker Street and avoid Chicken Rice Balls. It’s a trap! Follow me next week for I will write down a list of places recommended in Melaka.

Thanks for viewing.

Pip breaks walking record

Show some love

Today I broke the 1 hour mark of my 4.4 km walk. Mind you, there’s traffic and motorists, so I have to yield. Today was a clear day, fewer people on the street, and my mind set to break this record. So glad I did.

For reference, last month I was doing 1 h 6 min averages. I did 13 walks in September, and now I plan to break the number of walks as well.

Flipper, Vasectomy and Codependency

Let’s begin by not googling and blurting out whatever I know about these three topics:

  1. Flipper is an RFID programmable device that can detect radio frequencies used to unlock cars, gain access through security systems, and much more. According to my friend (let’s call her, Big P), this Flipper device costs RM 800 but it’s an investment worth making for someone like me.
  2. Vasectomy is when a guy cuts off the tubes that connect his balls containing sperm from flowing to his sexual partner during ejaculation. It’s a method of birth control.
  3. Codependency is when a guy relies on a rich girl’s wealth to fund his hobbies (eg. golfing, writing) or the other way round where a guy funds a girl’s spending habits (eg. shopping, hairdo, etc)

Phew, now let’s do some research to find out what they are really talking about.

  1. Flipper – you wait at the parking lot for your victim. You turn on the sniffer (Flipper Zero). Your victim unlocks the car. The signal to unlock has been detected and saved. Now you have access to the car. Sounds dangerous? Well, yeah, of course it is. Hackers are now able to clone access cards, RFID systems, and other security access cards that use radio frequencies for their own use. Link to – here you can find out more. My buddy Big P told me I could use such a device to learn and explore. I have my doubts about whether it is legal to own in Malaysia since importing radio frequency devices needs SIRIM (regulatory body) to approve before we can get it. I tried importing a Wi-Fi Pineapple (a router with 2 radios for hacking purposes) and the U.S. government blocked its export from the US. Some devices need certain permits, like HAM radio where you can use walkie-talkie-like devices to communicate, even to the Space Station 200km above us.
  2. Vasectomy – Big P told me I could consider Vasectomy if I don’t want to impregnate girls. Good idea, except it is irreversible. Maybe I strike the lottery 10 years down the line and would like to continue my bloodline. Then I would regret cutting off the tubes. Vasectomy is nearly 100 percent effective in preventing pregnancy. Vasectomy is an outpatient surgery with a low risk of complications or side effects. Win-win right? Well, maybe not. I like to keep my options open as I know my tendencies are to make rash, impulsive, wild decisions at the spur of the moment. Blame it on the ENFP traits!
  3. Codependencies – it’s 1:00 am and I found this: A codependent relationship can look like love, but it isn’t. Love is predicated on choice, the choice to support and care for another. If you are dependent on another person for your emotional security and welfare, then the relationship is no longer based on love. Instead, it is based on need. In a codependent relationship, one partner provides the money to support a habit, denies / avoids conflicts at all costs, and feels responsible for your partner’s thoughts, feelings, and actions, saying “yes” to your loved one when you want to say “no”. Sounds like a bad romance to me. But people still do it; they still engage in such practices.

My concluding thoughts on these 3 topics:

About 10 years ago, Knoppix STD was the best bootable Linux CD you can find to hack machines and Wifi passwords. Now, it is left untouched and not updated. It’s sad, really… such a useful tool for security professionals. There used to be a hacker series called HAK.5 with Darren Kitchen. That was what aroused my curiosity on the subject of infiltration and social engineering.

Now, chopping off the tubes on a man’s balls is a big decision. An ovulating woman will get pregnant if a condom leaks or breaks. Just look around our society, where babies are left in orphanages or worse still, dumped into the rubbish bin or flushed at toilets. The best way to prevent pregnancy is abstinence. No sex before marriage. And after marriage, well… at least your kids will be taken care of. Modern-day society tends to be disinterested in a traditional marriage. That’s why there are alternative couples (guy-guy, girl-girl, non-binary, transgender) that some speculate will mean the end of the human race as we decide not to repopulate the world. I think at 8 billion people, the world is too crowded. And we might need to be careful of too many humans in this scarce resource world where our crops and livestock are failing due to climate change.

Codependency, if I understand it correctly doesn’t mean stay-at-home mothers are guilty. I think the extreme where a tendency to apologize or take on blame in order to keep the peace, a pattern of avoiding conflict, a tendency to minimize or ignore your own desires, and excessive concern about a loved one’s habits or behaviors. On a similar note, I feel, that if a woman is able to provide, the man shouldn’t be too ashamed of being the stay-at-home father. I think a dependent relationship is one that lasts. I can see from experience that if one partner is reliant on the other, the relationship will last longer. But if both man and wife are adventurous and capable of their own accord, relationships tend to break down. In summary, I’m all for a one-sided reliant relationship – whether some might find it toxic or not.

[WIP] Burning Crops

Your crops are dying
As the world is heating
Sun in my eyes
As the sea levels rise
Hope is all shaken
Rice field are all barren
What can I do?
All I have here is you

I long for the days of plenty crops
I yearn for the times in our hang out spots
This suffering is gonna be just the beginning
As the weather fucks up; thunder and lightning
Blaming polluters ain’t solving the problem
Blaming the greedy ain’t stopping them from hoggin’
We’re all little pigs with the straw houses as shelter
Look out, it’s the climate change’s here to destroy you!

Penang Hill 2023

Here are pictures from the past, slightly or moderately related to Penang Hill.

Christmas 2010 – Asia Cafe was popular in SS15 Subang, so they brought the brand to Penang. Today, it is gone.

This is not Penang hill, but Mengkuang Dam in February 2012. There’s a fishing spot at the end of the trail

I was one of the earliest bloggers given a Yes 4G portable router to test back in 2012. There I met many bloggers in a social gathering setup.

Pippintosh EP – Interlude of My Heart

(work in progress: 11 May 2023) Interlude of my heart

Song 1 – Dental Hygiene

I can see no better way

To leave this place or stay

Thinking of just the other day

I need to fix my tooth decay

Walking to the dentist hall

Feeling just a wee bit small

I fear the sound of rumbling drills

See me running to that Penang hill


The drill turns on, it goes


Water gushing, it goes

ON and ON and ON

I’m shouting now in pain

My head cannot brain

Why I neglect my dental hygiene

Verse 2

The dentist wanna keep me aligned

With something called Invisa-Align!

I peered out at her beautiful garden

As the fillings they start to become hardenned

“No hard feelings” she said

Not like some girls who tend to mislead

Cook some porridge and Bovril

Racing down to BM’s foothill

Song 2 – Hey you!

Hey you, 

Your smile look just so bright today

The sweetness causes tooth decay

I wish that you are here to stay

I’ll hold the clouds so you could play

Hold me close, I’ll bring you up a hill

I promise you it is a thrill

Worry not we’ve got time to kill

Save your tummy for that one big meal


Play me a song

Sing me a tune

It won’t take long (interlude)

Your smile makes my day!

Buy me a beer

I’ll guide you through your day

Cutie my dear (interlude)

Let’s make it to the end.

Verse 2

Hey you,

There’s a sparkling twinkle in your eyes

Your gaze freezes me to a deep surprise

Like a fox you are so sly

I want to be in your embrace

Evertime you fix your nails and hair

If you’re happy, I’ll just be there

Picking a dress and sexy underwear

Hold my hand, I’ll take you there!


Please forgive me for I try

No excuse to make me cry

Think of me, my cutie pie

Come with me, don’t ask me why

Song 3 – Love ‘em while you can

As the new dawn breaks

7 am, oh my head aches

Daddy’s already awake

Making me coffee and my bread

Driving miles and miles for seafood

Doesn’t matter as long it’s good

It matters not where we are heading to

Just as long as I’m with you


And they say,

Love ‘em while you can

Please don’t make up other plans.

Dad’s your comfort and your strength

Love him deeper while you can.

Friends may come and they will go

There’s no certainty with our bros

Tell you daddy, I’ll be at your side

I cannot promise, I’ll find my bride


When the day he leaves this earth

We will miss out what he’s worth

Loving friendship, we all crave

Oh my god, I gotta be brave

Song 4 – This Organism

Here’s my body – it’s big and round

No comparing, I just can’t look around

Beautiful women, Buffy men

No escaping, I comprehend

God made me a healthy man

Not perfect but while I can

I will fit in HIS perfect plans

(dialogue) Beautiful woman, you want me? Surely, Can!


Come let’s dance for a little while

Just like particles in the sand

Being whole, it makes me smile

Like a kid in no man’s land

I am living in a dream

Against all the odds I was created

Together as a team

My cell they remain, undivided


The doctor said today

This body just needs some pills

Not as bad as a tooth decay

Your eating habit is overkill

Running jogging you must do

So your brain don’t go cuckoo

Don’t overthink, just move along

Idle mind is a devil’s playground

And round and round around and ground and round and round (interlude)

Bonus Song 5 – Racing thoughts

I swipe my card, hard

I spend my cash, in a flash

Emergency savings? I have none

In an accident, DNR!

I put my hands up

My live is lived so recklessly

Why is the hold up?

I wanna move forward, onward, march!

(Soldier marching interlude)


Friends they think that I am mad

Plan to live til I’m only fifty.

They keep saying that life’s a gem

So exclusive it bothers them

We are fighting our battles

Not as easy as chasing cattles

Social structure we dismantle

You have access to my Control Panel

Verse 2

Look around, population boom

30 million in our motherland

Our resource, it’s getting slim

No more chance to be making babies

Look I’m not here pushing doom

Most solutions are in our hand

Fighting hard we go to gym

Don’t give up, don’t be crybabies!

What this means is that under normal battery usage, the Windows laptop performs worse than a mobile phone. It is usable, but the experience can get laggy. After paying more for an OLED, your battery life is 10 hours according to Dell. Apple claims 18 hours of movie playback on their M2 Macbook Air.

Price? Apple RM6,699 Dell i7 RM 7,649
