步行记:槟城第二大桥(Second Penang Bridge)

Queensbay的单车道

前两天在《蓝天白云数格子》部落格看到了槟城第二大桥的文章,拍摄了很多大桥的魅力景色。心想着,三月一日后二桥将开始通车了,到时想要在桥上拍摄这些美景必定困难许多。于是,爱好摄影与冒险的我,昨天起步前往二桥。

我下午五点从家里出发,当时的太阳还是蛮猛烈一下的。半小时后,我抵达了皇后湾。自皇后湾建了单车道后,我就一直没到过那里了,所以昨天是我第一次踏上皇后湾单车道。不晓得单车道有多长的我,原本以为只要顺着单车道就能到二桥了,但最后发现原来单车道在上林苍佑大道前就结束了。我还真的是天真啊。。哈哈。。

A couple of days ago, I have saw an article about the 2nd Penang Bridge on 'My Lovely Blue Sky' blog. They have taken many great shots of the 2nd Penang Bridge. From the blog post, I get to know that the bridge will be having it's official grand opening ceremony on 1st March. It will be hard for me to shoot on the bridge after that, therefore, I have decided to go to the 2nd bridge before it's opening and I have done it just yesterday.

I departed from my house at 5pm. Half an hour later, I reached Queensbay and walked on the bicycle path. Since the bicycle path was built, I have never been there so yesterday was my first time to step on it. With the length of the bicycle path remain unknown for me, at first I thought that it might be somehow connected to the 2nd bridge. However, the path ends just right before exiting to Tun Dr. Lim Chong Eu Highway. What a short path it is. 


离开了单车道,我来到了林苍佑大道。大道上是没有行人道的,加上大道上快速来往的车子,所以步行在大道上其实是很危险的。

Leaving the bicycle path, I came to the Tun Dr. Lim Chong Eu Highway. There aren't any path for pedestrians to walk on and the vehicles on the highway were driving at a high speed, so it is actually quite dangerous to walk on the highway.


走了不久后,我发现在大道旁有海边而且景色迷人。碧蓝的海水,细白的沙滩,加上那广阔的蓝天白云,美,是最好不过的形容词了。沙滩上,可以看到几位马来同胞正在休闲。我与其中一位马来同胞聊了起来,他说这里以前曾经是沼泽地带,没有沙滩的。

After some walk on the highway, I came across a beach beside the road. The view at there is really beautiful and I saw there were some Malays relaxing on the beach. I talked with on of them and he told me that before the factories was built, this beach was a swamp.


那位马来同胞还告诉我以前的Pulau Jerejak是一所监狱,不过这监狱已经在很久前搬迁到柔佛了。现在的Pulau Jerejak已经是旅游胜地,让游客们享受大自然乐趣的岛屿。

The Malay also told me that Pulau Jerejak used to be a jail, but the jail has been moved to Johor long ago. Now, Pulau Jerejak is a place for tourist to enjoy themselves with the beauty of the mother nature.


在不远处,看见有人在撒网捕鱼。经过允许后,我为他拍下了撒网的那一刻。槟城二桥作为背景,还不错吧。。哈哈。。

Not far away, I saw there was people casting a net into the sea. After seeking for the permission, I shot few photos of him casting the net. It is the 2nd Penang Bridge as the background, not bad huh?


换个角度再来一张。

Taken another shot from another angle.
  

接下来我一路沿着海岸继续前进。

And then I progress forward along the seaside.


走了一小时半后,看到了几个由马来同胞经营的路边摊。这时的我已经有点累了。我停下脚步,买了一包Teh O Limau Ais。我问了卖水的马来同胞,是否我只要一直往前走就能抵达二桥了?她说是的,不过还有一段路程。我又问了她我可以到桥上拍照吗?她说不能,那边会有“守护者”阻止我上桥的。听了这一番话,心里有冷了一下,不过心想既然都走了一半了,就干脆把另一半也走下去吧!

After 1.5 hour of walking, I saw some Malay hawker stalls at the roadside. At that moment I was already a bit tired and so I stop my pace and ordered a Teh O Lime Ice. I asked the hawker whether is it that if I keep on walking along the highway then I will reach the 2nd bridge? She said yes, but still have a long way to go. Then I asked her again whether I can walk on the bridge and do some shooting? This time she said no, she said that there will be 'guardian' stopping me from entering the 2nd bridge. Frankly, I was a bit down when I heard this, but I have walked so far so I will not just simply give up. I continued my journey.


这包Teh O Limau Ice才RM1,超值的。就是它一路上不离不弃陪伴着我直到二桥的。

This The O Lime Ice was only RM1, it was really worth!


没过不久我看到了石灰路。一路沿着石灰路走着,我来到了一间饮食中心。

A while later, I saw a proper road path. This road was leading me to a hawker center.


这个景是在饮食中心后面拍摄的。原本想要走到木桥尽头的,不过那里的人告诉我不行,因为那是别人的地方。

This scene was taken at the back of the hawker center. I wanted to walk on the bridge but the people at there told me not to do so as this bridge was belong to other people.


再往下走一点是个妈来同胞的小渔村。

Further down a bit is a small Malay fisherman village.


又看见有人撒网,又把他拍下来了。此刻的我已经离二桥越来越近了!

And I saw someone casting a net again and I shot this scene again. Now, I was pretty close to the 2nd Penang Bridge.


这是那位马来同胞捕获的虾子,他说如果收获多的话就会拿去卖,少的话就自己煮来吃。

This was the prawn caught by the Malay guy. He said that if he was able to catch a big number of prawns, then he will sell it to the market. If not, he will cooked it.


走着走着,遇到了这颗几乎快掉光树叶的小树。于是,我为它拍了一张剪影照片。

On the way, I met with this almost leafless small tree. I took a silhouette photo for her.


终于,二小时半的行走后,抵达二桥的桥底了!当下心情是非常兴奋的!到桥底时,看见很多人陆陆续续的前来,于是我也跟着大家一同走上桥了。目前是没有看到任何“守护者”出现。

Finally, after 2.5 hours of walking, I have reached the bottom of the 2nd bridge! My feeling at that moment was very excited! When I reached there, I saw many people were coming. I followed them and soon I have my first step on the bridge. So far I was not seeing any 'guardian' on the way.


原本以为能一直这样走到桥中间的,不过却被阻止了。穿着黄外套的这位就是卖水马来同胞所谓的“守护者”了。虽然有点失望,不过算了吧,至少我上桥了(还以为连桥都上不了的)。无法前进所以只好后退寻找别的拍摄地点了。

I thought that I can just walk straight until the middle of the bridge but then I was stopped by the 'guardians'. Though I was a bit disappointed, but it's okay, at least I was on the bridge now (at first I thought I will not be able to step foot on the bridge).


趁天还亮,在二桥上拍摄了一张晚霞的天空。

While the sky was still bright, I took a photo of the sunset sky.


在桥上并没有拍摄很多张照片,因为找不到想要的角度。

I have not been taken many photos on the bridge as I cant find the angle I wanted.


说真的,我的拍摄技术还有很大很多的进步空间。

Honestly, I still need more efforts to improve my photography skill.


对于当晚的拍摄并不满意,觉得拍出来的照片都不美。

I wasn't satisfied with the photos I shot at that night. I feel that the photos I shot were not nice at all.



最后这张是在二桥底旁边拍摄的。

This last one was taken at the left side of the bottom of the bridge.

拍摄最后这张时已经是晚上九点了,想要走回家的话又是另一个两小时半,而且夜深了随时都会有危险。我问了在一旁钓鱼的马来同胞这附近哪里有巴士站,他告诉了我地点然后问我要回哪里。我告诉他我要回立信花园,过后他说他可以载我回,不过会比较夜一些。我和他说我可以等,反正我也很得空(我的戒备心还真低啊!)。
十点半,他开始收拾他的钓鱼用具,然后载我回家了。他告诉我他叫Afiz,人们都叫他Baik。我现在明白为什么人们都这样称呼他了,因为他真的是个大好人啊!

~感恩~

When I took the last shot, it was already 9pm. I was thinking of walking back home but it will means another 2.5 hours and the sky was dark already so it will be dangerous to walk alone. I asked a Malay guy who was fishing at there as where is the nearest bus stop. He told me the location and then asked me where I wanted to go. I told him that I want to go back to Lip Sin Garden and then he said that he can fetch me back, but I will have to wait for a little longer. I told him I can wait as I was free the whole day.
At 10.30pm, he started to pack his fishing tools and then he fetched me home. He told me that his name is Afiz and people around him called him Baik (good). Now I see why he gets the nickname. Because he is really a big nice guy!

~Feeling Grateful~

  4. pulau jerejak也是给患有麻风的病人在那儿关闭,所以传说中很肮脏,很恐怖。
    我记得pulau jerejak刚把麻风病人处理好药开发pulau jerejak时,报纸也访问过当地人。

    1. 看来马来同胞没有告诉我关于麻风病的事情,原本以为那里纯粹是关犯人的地方而已。
      原来好像槟城人都知道的哦,我的槟城朋友都没有告诉我咯~

  6. 你走这样远的路?
    那一带遇到的马来人都很好的,我们时常在permatang damar laut , sungai batu 或者 balik pulau 拍摄日落照片,遇到的马来人都很好,打招呼。
    昨天早上,我有在走去槟城第二大桥,他们已经关闭了一大段桥上的路,之前我们还可以走去前面1公里。 不过现在的人潮真的够多。

    1. 是咯,不晓得要如何搭巴士,有没有交通所以只好走路了。。哈哈。。
      是的,而且一路上我都只遇到马来通同胞已,到了二桥后我才开始看到有华人。这些马来同胞真的真的是很好,很热情,而且对于陌生人的我并没有一丝抗拒的心理,我超喜欢他们的!
      如果可以的话我真想走到桥中间呢,很想试下亲自站在桥中那个巨大三角形东西的下方,那感觉应该会很棒吧?

    一路上的风景算是值得,但是走路也需要意志力,佩服。
