By the shores of Tg Bungha - Penang

Penang, the metro island in Malaysia, brings sweet memories and I used to long for another visit. Now, the second visit also proved to be magical as we stayed in Tanjung Bungha, by the beach. It was a good holiday and our days either started or ended with a beach walk. 

After enjoying sunrise from our balcony with a cup of tea we went for a stroll and captured this awesome loner.
Gazing @ noisy friends


That day, Sun was too lazy and still trying to play hide and seek even at 7.50 AM!


Shoreline is packed with high-rises and gives a sort of Sigaporish feel, but still more spacious than the land of Lion!



This bare tree with name-cards besides Paradise Resort caught our attention...

It had names with dates and said 'In Paradise'. The duration was anywhere between 3 months to 6 years, so I was sure that it was like a memory mark or visitors dairy, like the ones typically seen in popular spots. Instead of assuming or just wondering, I chatted up with a cleaner (ignoring the killer stare from my crazy half!), he confirmed that the resort does this as a token of appreciation for their long-stay guests!

The beach is quite well maintained...


A beach walk is incomplete without collecting shells, right?

Great photos. They are all such beautiful scenes. i can not visit the beach without picking up shells. It is my favorite thing to do, simply walk along finding shells and walking along the water's edge. So peaceful!

Such lovely photos! I loved the composition of the shots - and really enjoyed getting to see part of the world I would otherwise never get to see.

Beautiful place! It doesn't always work out that the second visit is as wonderful as the first, but it obviously did for you here! Thanks for sharing.
