Some of you have been requesting for a Penang Info or newsletter for some time. I know it is long overdue. For that, I thank youfor the push and patience.

Writing passionately about something for the web site is not that difficult. But a new letters, that sets me thinking for many months. So I ask myself what am I going to write in my Penang News.

We will be publish on a monthly or quarterly basis featuring latest happenings, hot news in Penang or even Malaysia. I am not a buzy body but any news that has impact in Penang or its community, I will try to place it in the Penang info News.

We will be publish on a monthly or quarterly basis featuring latest happenings, hot news in Penang or even Malaysia. I am not a buzy body but any news that has impact in Penang or its community, I will try to place it in the Penang info News.

Happenings like PGCC or intention to bring the trams back is part excitement, part concern.

Make sure you subscribe with a valid e-mail address. Hotmail and Yahoo (especially!) tend to drop the newsletter in the bulk folder. I know, it should not be there but I have no control over Yahoo mail.

If you haven't received a newsletter by the end of the month in your mail box, it's likely to be found in the bulk folder. Yahoo has too many spam mails.

So sign up for our newsletter is the way to be in touch with some latest happening in Penang. Well, here are some topics will be covered in upcoming Penang Info issues.

  • Short emails, with tips or updates related to Penang
  • Occasional answers to your (good well mannered ) questions

  • Some community or towns events and festivals
  • 5 Points Checklist: You Should Look At before you even start your trip (it doesn't matter into which country you're going to travel to!)
