步行记:槟城美湖 Gertak Sanggul

Walking to Gertak Sanggul

继上次美湖步行记宣告任务失败后,我又再次踏上了以美湖为终点的旅程。这次的步行记耗了五小时半(休息二十五分钟),路程二十三公里,是我目前走过最长最久的。上次美湖步行记之所以会失败是因为太迟出门,在抵达美湖之前就天黑了。这次我提前两小时出发,下午一点十五分从家里(立信花园)出发,傍晚六点四十五分抵达美湖。

这次我选择了林苍佑大道作为我的主要路线,主要原因是上次走Bayan Lepas时那里全都是工厂,很闷!说起来,这已经是我第三次走林苍佑大道了,第一次是走去槟城第二大桥的时候,第二次是去看二桥开幕礼时。从家里出发半小时后我来到了皇后湾的脚车道,然后就一直随着脚车道走下去。当时的天气属阴,抬头只见阵阵乌云,原本还担心会下雨的,但是不久后炎热的太阳出现了!

Once again, I step on this journey to Gertak Sanggul. This time, I have spent a total of 5.5 hours (25minutes rest) to walk a journey of 23km. This is the longest distance and time I have walked so far. Last time I failed to reach Gertak Sanggul as I departed too late from my house, the sky has tuned dark before I can reach Gertak Sanggul. This time, I departed two hours earlier, 1.15pm from my house (Lip Sin Garden) and reached Gertak Sanggul at 6.45pm.

I have chosen to walk on the Tun Dr. Lim Chong Eu Highway. The main reason is because the Bayan Lepas road (my previous choice) is full of factories, very boring. This has been the third time I walked on Tun Dr. Lim Chong Eu Highway. The first time is when I walked to see the Penang Second Bridge and the second time is during the opening ceremony of the Penang Second Bridge. Half an hour after departing from my house, I reached the bicycle lane at Queensbay. The weather at that time was shady and I saw the dark clouds were floating above me. I was afraid that it might rain but soon before I knew it, the hot sun came out and greeted me.


走到脚车道尽头时,脚车道突然这样一条直线割过就完了,感觉还蛮可笑的。

When I reached the end of the bicycle lane, the lane just suddenly end like that. It will be better if they can make a U-turn.


接下来就是走到大路旁的海边。那时候刚好是涨潮时段。

Then, I walked on the beach besides the main road. The tide was high at that time.


不远处,我看见一位大叔手里拿着一只有壳生物沿着海岸上走着过来。好奇心的驱使下,我走到了大叔的面前,问了大叔他手里拿着的是什么生物?大叔告诉我说那是“Belangkas”(鲎),涨潮的时候可以在海岸上发现他们。我问大叔他是否要将这只鲎卖了?他说没有,是拿来当晚餐吃的。我又问了大叔这只鲎没有攻击性吗?他说没有,只是在尾巴部分有刺,只要小心就没事了。我摸了摸鲎的腹部,软软的~

Not far away, I saw an uncle holding a creature on his hand walking along the seaside. I quickly went towards the uncle to see what is that creature. The uncle told me that the creature is called 'Belangkas' (Horseshoe Crab), it can be found on the seaside during the rising tide. I asked the uncle whether is it he was going to sell it? He said no, he will cook it for dinner. I asked the uncle again whether this horseshoe crab will attack people? He said no, only that at the tail part of it has some stings, he just have to be careful while holding it. I touched the abdomen of the horseshoe crab and it feels soft.


在沿海走不久看见了一群人在海上的木桥,可以听见敲打声从那里传来,他们似乎是在修理着什么东西。

Walked along the seaside some more and I saw a few guys was hitting something on the floating wooden bridge. They seem to be repairing something.


还没吃早餐的我,在沿海路上看见了一档马来当口。原本没有打算要吃的,后来想想还是吃点好吧,要不然饿晕的话就不好了。我点了一碗叻沙和一杯Teh O Limau Ice。叻沙一碗RM3.50, Teh O Limau Ice一杯RM1.20。那里的叻沙蛮大腕一下的,味道也不错,不过唯一很不满意的是那里的卫生。从我开始吃到我吃完为止,苍蝇都不停在我的叻沙上围绕着!

Soon, I saw a Malay food stall at the seaside and that time I was not having my breakfast yet. At first, I didn't think of having my meal at there, but then I was afraid that I might be fainted because of too hungry so I decided to have my breakfast at there. I ordered one bowl of Laksa (RM3.50) and one glass of Teh O Limau Ice (RM1.20). The Laksa is quite big in portion and tasted not bad. The only thing I wanted to complain is the hygiene at there. From the moment I started eating my Laksa until I finished it, the flies never stopped flying around the Laksa!


我用了十分钟吃早餐,吃饱后继续赶路。在路上看到了这个电话套和手套,那个手套的主人应该是对他的工作很不满意吧。哈哈!

After having my breakfast (10 minutes), I continued my journey. On the way, I saw a phone cover and a glove on the road. It seems like the glove's owner was really dissatisfied with his work. XD


很快的,我就要抵达槟城二桥了!

Pretty soon, I was going to reach the Penang Second Bridge again!


不久,我抵达槟城二桥了!这次我用了两小时才抵达二桥。

Soon, I reached the Penang Second Bridge! This time I have used two hours to reach there.


来到了槟城二桥就意思意思为它拍一张照吧。。嘻嘻~

Snapped a photo of the 2nd bridge before I leaved.


二桥过后来到了南沙湾,这里对我而言是个陌生的领域。

After the 2nd bridge and I came to South Bay. This area was like a stranger to me.


曾经坐过朋友的车经过这里,当时他只是沿着一条路一直走,所以我相信我只需要沿着大路走就不会走错的!

I ever passed through here sitting on a friend's car. He was driving along the main road that time so I trust that if I continued to walk along the main road then I will not get lost.


在路上看见了一面广角镜,给自己拍了一张照片。

Saw a wide angle mirror half way and taken a photo for myself.


原本在大路两旁是马来屋,越走越远后路旁开始出现商店了。

At first both side of the main road are occupied by the Malay houses, after walking a little longer the shops started to appear.


走着走着就走出了住宅区。在右边看到的是学车中心,而左边则是大海。

Soon, I walked out from the residence area. At my right is a driving lesson school and at my left is an ocean.


在学车中心的隔壁就是槟城机场了。看到机场我就很确定我没走错路了,因为上次跟朋友车子时有经过这里。

Next to the driving lesson school is the Penang International Airport. When I saw the airport, I was pretty sure that I was in the right way as last time when I followed my friend's car, we got passed through here.


我的朋友告诉我在这里降落的飞机会飞得非常低,所以很有可能可以拍到飞机的正面。

My friend told me that the air plane landing at here will fly at a very low position, so there is a big chance i can shoot the direct front of the air plane.


我在这里逗留了十五分钟,只等到一架飞机起飞,无缘看到飞机降落。起飞时的飞机飞得蛮高的,所以拍出来的飞机也只是小小的。

I wandered at there for 15 minutes. I didn't get the chance to meet the landing air plane but I saw an departing air plane. The departing air plane flew at quite a high position so the plane I shot looked quite small in the photo.


这些是引导飞机降落时的灯柱,上次我经过时是晚上,场景很漂亮哦!

These are the lamps leading the landing air plane to the lane. Last time when I passed through here was at night, the scene was pretty nice!


这是在篱笆与篱笆之间的最前灯柱,应该是为了不让飞机撞上篱笆而设的。

This is the most front lamps in between the fences. These purpose of these lamps seem to be preventing the air plane from crashing into the fences.


虽然很想等到飞机降落,但我还是继续前进,因为害怕又再次耽误时间。从机场往前走不久,我来到了熟悉的道路,公笆。我下午五点抵达这里,在走不远就能到前往美湖的山路了!

Though I wished to wait for the landing air plane, but I decided to proceed on my journey as I was afraid that I will delayed the journey time again. Walking further down a bit from the airport, I came to this familiar place, Teluk Kumbar. I reached there at 5pm and Gertak Sanggul is just not far away!


抵达山路前看见了这辆巴士。平时看见的巴士前面都是平的,但这辆却是凸的,很可爱叻!

Before reaching the mountain road, I saw this bus. Normally, the buses I saw was flat at the front, but this one was just kinda cute~


走了一小时后,我来到了山路入口。这次比上次早到了一小时,天也还亮着,预计在七点之前就能抵达美湖了。

After one hour of walking, I reached the entrance of the mountain road. This time I was one hour earlier than last time and the sky was still bright. I estimated that I will arrive at Gertak Sanggul by 7pm.


在山路上走了二十分钟,终于来到了Tanjung Asam。上次我就是在这里结束我的旅程的,败给了逐渐暗下的天空。这次我没走进Tanjung Asam了,我继续赶路前往Gertak Sanggul,而我也发现了在这里的对面其实是一个坟场。

After a 20 minutes of walking on the mountain road, finally I have reached Tanjung Asam, which was the place I ended my last Gertak Sanggul journey due to the soon to be turning dark sky. This time, I continued my journey without entering the beach and I found out that opposite this place is actually a graveyard.

其实,当我回到家时,不幸的事情发生了。这里过后的所有照片都发生故障,一张美湖的照片都没有了。后来,花费了一天的时间,尝试了多种不同的软件,总算在网上找到了可以修复部分图片的软件了。接下来的九张照片是我成功救回的。我在想啊,会不会是我在经过坟墓时不小心得罪了安息在那里的亡灵,所以他们才让我的照片故障以惩罚我。不过我在经过坟墓时确实有向他们点头致敬的,或许我还做得不够吧。

Actually, when I reached home, unfortunately all my photos beyond this point were corrupted. I spent one whole day on finding the solution to save my photos and I have downloaded many software and tried them all. Finally, I managed to find one software to recover part of the photos. The following 9 photos were the photos I managed to recover. I was thinking, was it that I have done something disrespectful to the graveyard? So that the souls resting there corrupting my photos to punish me. But for sure, when I passed through the graveyard, I have pay my respect to them by nodding my head, perhaps that was still not enough?


过了Tanjung Asam,山路变得越来越狭窄,森林也越来越茂密。

After passing through Tanjung Asam, the mountain road became more narrow.



傍晚六点四十五分,我抵达了美湖。很多美湖的照片都已救不回,所以我只好用写的来描述了。刚进入美湖,就看见一间华人寺庙在我的左边,寺庙旁则是一间医务所,不远处就是这个义务消防队了。

I reached Gertak Sanggul at 6.45pm. Many of the Gertak Sanggul photos cant be saved, so I will describe this place in words. When I enter Gertak Sanggul, there is a Chinese Temple at my left, beside the temple is a clinic and not far away is this volunteer fire fighter team.


美湖其实是个华人的渔村,我真的是没想到过了一座山后既然会有这样的一个村子。在村子里有很多寺庙,也可以看到一些上了年纪的大人们在海边聚聚闲聊,是个很悠闲的地方。

Gertak Sanggul is actually a Chinese fishing village. I have never think that there is actually a village like this beyond the mountain. There are many temples inside the village, and I saw there were some adults gathering at the seaside, chit-chatting with each other. It was really a nice place to go if you wished to get away from the busy life.


至于海边,海岸和海水我都觉得没有Tanjung Asam的来得清澈,而景色也没我想象的美。说真的,其实我有点小失望。

As for the beach, the sand and the sea water was not as clear as the Tanjung Asam one, and the scene was not as nice as I thought it would be. I was a little bit disappointed actually.


在海岸上走着的时候,突然间有一群狗冲着我而来。但是它们却没有攻击我,反而在我身旁陪伴着我一直走,这种感觉真的是很温馨,尤其是里头有一只哈士奇狗是我非常喜欢的!

When I walked on the beach, suddenly there were a bunch of dogs running towards me. However, they do not attack me but walked side by side with me. Among them, there was one Husky that I really like!


在海边有一条木桥,据说这是美湖的情人桥哦~

There is a wooden bridge at the seaside, it was said this is the lover bridge of Gertak Sanggul.


经过日月的风吹雨打,原本美丽的美湖情人桥已变得残破不堪,所以走在桥上时需要特别的小心,要不然很容易跌下去的。

Having experiencing the big wind and the heavy rains for years, the beautiful wooden bridge has now turn into a broken bridge. When walking on it, I was very careful as I don't want to fall into the sea.


最后我还是没走到桥的尽头,因为这里要经过一个很大的空洞,而空洞之间就只有一块木板让你走。

At last, I didn't made it to the end of the bridge as there is a big hole before reaching there. In between the hole, there is only one wooden plank for me to step on and I found it very dangerous so I decided to move back.


在那里待了一会儿,很快的天也黑了下来。其实在来这之前,我告诉了我的朋友,说如果他得空的话就来美湖找我吧。我抵达美湖不久后,我的朋友也抵达了。离开美湖的时候我是乘搭他的车回家的。这次走了五个小时半的旅程,终于抵达终点了,也解了我那颗不甘愿的心,赔上的也只不过是那起了水泡的双脚。相比起来,值得了。

I spent some time at there and soon the sky has turned pretty dark. The fact is, before I came here, I have told my friend that if he was free for that day he can come find me at Gertak Sanggul. Soon after I reached Gertak Sanggul, my friend has reached as well. I leaved Gertak Sanggul by following his car. This time, I have walked for 5.5 hours and I have finally reached the destination which I have failed to reach once. All it takes was just the little pain on my legs. This pain was nothing comparing to the great achievement I have in my heart.
