开幕礼:槟城第二大桥(Jambatan Sultan Abdul Halim Mu‘adzam Shah)

Jambatan Sultan Abdul Halim Mu‘adzam Shah Opening Ceremony

 昨天,三月一日,槟城又记载了历史性的一刻。耗了六年建筑工程的槟城第二大桥终于在昨天以燃放烟花仪式开幕,今天已经能通车了。

自从上次从我家步行至二桥后,我就爱上了那段路程。虽然有免费的巴士可以搭,不过我还是坚持走路,想要欣赏路边美景。我一点四十五分从家里出发,三点半抵达二桥,比上次步行时间短了四十五分钟。抵达二桥,我第一时间就是冲向嘉年华买饮料解渴。说真的,我对这个嘉年华真的很失望,感觉没有规划好,草草了事。

Yesterday, 1st March, Penang has added a historic moment into it's record. The Penang Second Bridge that has been built for six years has finally launched it's opening yesterday with grand fireworks displayed. The bridge is named after Sultan Abdul Halim Mu‘adzam Shah and today, the bridge is ready for vehicles to pass through.

Since I have walked from my house to the second bridge last time, I have been in love with the view along the journey. Though there was free shuttle provided to fetch the public to the second bridge, yet I chose to walk there just because I wanted to see the view again. I departed at 1.45pm from my house and reached the second bridge at 3.30pm. I was 45 minutes faster compare to my last journey. The first thing I do when I reached the second bridge was went to the carnival to buy a drink as I was really exhausted and thirsty from the walking. Well, frankly speaking, I was really disappointed with the carnival as it was not well-planed and it was really boring, at least for me.


在嘉年华那里吃了我的午餐和喝了很多水后,我决定到附近走走,寻找待会儿拍摄烟花的地点。离二桥不远,有个填满着大块石头的海边。我在那里找到了满意的角度,也在那里遇到了一户马来人家。我们聊了起来。我问他们是到这里休闲的吗?他们说他们是来晒咸鱼的,顺便休闲。我又问了他们为什么要在这里晒?他们告诉我说这里比较清静,不会被别人打搅。聊了一会儿后,时间尚早,所以我又走回二桥那里了。

After having my lunch and drink a lot at the carnival, I have decided to roam around at nearby area, searching for a nice spot to shoot the fireworks later. Not far from the second bridge, there is a seaside area that was filled by rocks. I have found a nice angle at there and I met with a Malay family at there. We talked and I asked them whether they were there to relax or something else? They told me that they were actually there to dry the salted fish and enjoying the sea view at the same time. Then I asked them again why is it they choose this place? They told me that this area has less people coming by so they wont be disturbed by others. We talked for a while and the time was still early so I walked back to the second bridge.


前往二桥时,我看见一辆接着一辆的巴士抵达二桥。这十多辆巴士上都载满了国民服务的实习生,大家都一起来凑热闹了!

When I was on my way to the second bridge, I saw buses were coming one by one. These buses were fully loaded with the national service training students and they were here to join in the fun!


这时大概是傍晚六点,人潮已经开始不断涌现了。

It was around 6pm at that time and people were coming non-stop.


民众将椅子搬到沙滩上。

The audiences were carrying the chairs to the beach.


这样子坐在沙滩上看着宏伟的二桥,应该很享受吧?

Sitting on the chair at the beach looking at the magnificent Penang Second Bridge, wasn't it the best?


七点半左右,我返回石头海边那里,准备迎接烟花的到来。其实我不晓得几点开始燃放烟花,之前问了一位工作人员,他告诉我应该是八九点之间,所以我七点半就开始准备了。趁天还没暗,先拍摄一张二桥照吧。

Around 7.30pm, I went back to the rocks area and get ready for the fireworks later. Actually I wasn't sure about the time of the fireworks display but a crew told me that it should be around 8pm to 9pm. I took a photo of the second bridge before the sky turns dark.


天黑后也来拍摄一张。

I took another photo after the sky turns dark.


这就是我要的景啦~ 很漂亮吧?

This is the view I was satisfied with, is it nice?


烟花大概是九点半开始燃放。就在烟花燃放前的几分钟,突然来了很多人,把我的景给遮着了。在那里守了两小时的景就这样没有了。无奈,我只好起身,找过新的景了。

The fireworks started at around 9.30pm. Just few minutes before the fireworks started, suddenly there were many people coming this way and they have blocked my view. I was waiting at there for two hours and now everything was gone. Well, there was nothing much I can do about the people so I stand up and searched for a new shooting spot.


在那里的海边直线上几乎都站满了摄影师,我也勉强找到了一个空位。

Along the seaside was almost fully filled with photographers. I managed to squeeze in myself somehow.


就在我还在找着最佳角度和调整相机设定的时候,烟花开始燃放了。措手不及之下,我只好按下快门,希望能有一张好看的照片就可以了。

While I was adjusting my camera to the best view and adjusting my camera setting, the fireworks started. Unprepared, I press the shuttle hoping that there will be at least one nice photo.


拍了三四张后,我开始紧张了。发现烟花都没能完全入镜。我试着拉开距离,不过由于前面有人,所以最好的距离只能这样了。

After shooting a few photos, I started getting nervous as the fireworks was not fully captured in the photo. I tried to zoom out, but there were people in front of me, so this is the best distance I can get.


看着盛放的烟花时,我又不想看镜头了。感觉透过镜头就无法真正的享受其中。

When I looked at the amazing fireworks displayed, I wouldn't wanted to look at the camera anymore. I feel that I cant really enjoyed myself looking at the fireworks through the lens.


于是,我双眼看着烟花,手指却死命按相机快门。

So, my eyes were looking at the fireworks but my hand keep on pressing the camera shuttle.


接下来我只能祈祷了。

All I can do now is to pray.


拍了很多张烟花照片,可是却没有一张是满意的。
经过这次,我学到了三个教训:
1。100%的付出比一定会有100%的回报。
2。计划永远赶不上变化,要懂得随机应变。
3。有时,想要得到一样东西就必须放弃另一样东西。

I have taken many fireworks photos but I wasn't satisfied with any of them.
Through this, I have learnt three lessons:
1. 100% effort doesn't promises a 100% returns.
2. A plan can be ruin by a change at any time, learn to be flexible.
3. There are times when you have to give up on something to get something.
