Penang Isle: Karpal Singh Drive (formerly The Nautilus Bay)

Completed more than 10 years ago, this seaside walkway that stretches along the coastline of Jelutong Expressway, is also dubbed the ‘New Gurney’ by the locals here.  This walkway is a popular place for joggers, cyclists as well as fishing hobbyists. At the center of the walkway lies the 4-blue-pylons art sculpture made by renowned artist NAKAYAMA Hitori.

The promenade is now renamed as Karpal Singh Drive in honor of Karpal Singh, a prominent politician hailing from Penang who passed away in an accident in 2014.

A Walk Through Heritage: A Malaysia Day

Held on the 16th September every year, Malaysia Day commemorates the establishment of the Malaysian federation on the same date in 1963. The date marked the joining together of Malaya, North Borneo, Sarawak and Singapore to form Malaysia (although Singapore was later removed two years after being a part of Malaysia).
