步行记:升旗山上拍夜景 Night View At Penang Hill

Penang Hill

这次的步行记决定要到升旗山上拍夜景。原本是打算在中午十二点出发的,不过却突然下起雨来,所以就拖到下午两点十五分才出发了。这次我选择步行Jalan Paya Terubong,路程十五公里,耗了四小时四十五分钟才抵达升旗山。

其实呢,这次步行记有一半是为了要去探索四季新天地的,因为我不熟悉那一带,而这个星期五在那里有个博客聚,所以要去看看要到那里应该乘搭什么巴士(虽然上网就有得查了,但是感觉自己亲自努力得来的答案会比较有满足感。我还真是怪人一个啊。。哈哈~)。

This time, I have decided to walk to Penang Hill to shoot the beautiful night view of Penang. I was planning to depart on 12pm but unfortunately the sky suddenly rain. Thus, I have delayed my journey until 2.15pm. I have chose to use the Jalan Terubong path and the distance to Penang Hill is 15km. I have spent 4 hours and 45 minutes to reach Penang Hill.

Actually, half of the reason I walked to Penang Hill  this time was because I wanted to explore the All Seasons Place. I have a bloggers' gathering at there this Friday and I was not familiar with that area. So, I have to explore that area to know which bus will pass through there (actually I can check which bus will pass through All Seasons Place on the internet but I feel like finding out myself will be more satisfying. Called me a weirdo if you want..haha~).


从家里出发一小时十五分钟后,我又再次走在这个路口了。上一次经过这里时是走去浮罗山背,这次是走另一个方向(右边),前往亚依淡。转右之后就是个陌生的区域了。之前看了谷歌地图,似乎是只有一条路而已,所以只要一直沿着山路走就没问题了。

After departing from my house for an hour and fifteen minutes, I have reached this junction again. Last time when I passed through here on foot was when I walked to Balik Pulau. This time, I have walked the opposite way (right) to Air Itam. This road to Air Itam is called Jalan Paya Terubong and it was a new area to me. Previously, I have seen on Google map that there is only one road to reach Air Itam from here, so I will just have to follow the mountain road all the way.


沿着山路走不久,看见在我右边有个小农场。

Soon after I turned right from the junction, I saw a little farm on my right.


我走进农场探了探,看见的只是枯萎了的葫芦植物,这个农场似乎已经被遗弃,没有人在打理了。

I walked into the farm to see what are the plants and I saw the wilted gourd plants. It seems like this farm has been abandoned and no one takes care of it anymore.


道别小农场后,我走回山路继续我的旅程。没多久,我看见一栋栋的公寓出现在我的右边。接下来的山路都是有这些公寓陪伴着我。

After the little visit at the farm, I went back to the mountain road and continued my journey. Soon, I saw buildings of flats on my right. I was accompanied by these flats along the mountain road afterwards.


这些公寓都看起来蛮旧了,不晓得有多久了。公寓的建筑风格很有规律,可以成为很棒的拍摄背景,我很喜欢哦。

These flats seem like quite old already, I wonder how long have they been built? I like the alignment of the flats, they are so neat and it can become a good background for shooting.


再往下走些是一栋比较新的公寓,Green Garden。这栋公寓可真的是很巨大呢!

Walking further a bit and I saw this gigantic flats, Green Garden. It is so big that I cant fit in them completely into my photo.


过后看见的就是这些排屋了,建筑风格比较摩登,应该是近年来才建好的。我没想到的是,我竟然会在山路上看见排屋咯。

And then I saw these townhouses and the building style is quite modern. What I was surprised was that I have never thought that I will saw these modern townhouses along the mountain road.


接下来看到的还是公寓,不过这些公寓就比较矮了。其实我在看着这些公寓时心里有种与世隔绝的感觉,感觉这里就像是在另一个世界一样。

What I saw next was still the flats, but these flats were shorter compared to the previous one. Actually, when I was seeing these flats, I feel like as if I was in another world, a world that was hidden somewhere in a mountain.


通过这些公寓后就抵达山路的出口了。这条山路比去浮罗山背的山路短了很多,我只用了半小时就把山路走完了。

After passing through the flats, I reached the exit of the mountain road. This mountain road was way more shorter compared to the mountain road to Balik Pulau. I merely used half an hour to walk pass it.


走出山路后继续往前走就看见市镇了,这里应该就是龙尾了。这可是我第一次亲临龙尾哦,每次都是坐车经过的,而且也只经过两三次罢了。

Exited from the mountain and walked further and I started to see the features of a town along the road, here must be Farlim already. This is the first time I stepped on Farlim myself. Previously I only passed through Farlim sitting on my friend's car.


抵达龙尾市镇时我做的第一件事就是寻找食物!我还没吃午餐就出门了,所以当时已经是很饿了。我抵达龙尾时已经是下午四点多了,很多饮食档口都已经收档了。

The first thing I do when I reached Farlim was to find food! I haven't have my lunch yet so I was really hungry. Unfortunately,  many food stall have already closed their stall when I reached Farlim.


最后,还是被我发现了有一档买鸡饭的档口还挂着一两只烧鸡。于是,我马上走进咖啡店点了一盘鸡饭食用。当时的咖啡店就只有我一位顾客罢了~

At last, I saw a chicken rice stall which still with the chicken hanging on the stall. I walked into the coffee shop and ordered one plate of chicken rice. At that time, I was the only customer in the coffee shop.


在咖啡店里休息了二十分钟后我继续赶路,才走没多久我就看到坟场了。这时我想到了上次我去美湖时发生的事,就是上次经过了坟场之后的照片全都故障了。我在心中默默地祈祷,希望这次不会那么衰,要不然我就真的是要去拜拜了。幸好,回到家时照片都没事,感恩啊~

After resting for 20 minutes at the coffee shop, I continued my journey. Soon, I came to this Hokkien graveyard. It reminds me of the incident that happened last time when I walked to Gertak Sanggul. Last time I also passed through a graveyard and then all the photos beyond that point were corrupted. I pray hard in my heart hoping that this time my photos wont be corrupted, otherwise I really have to go praying. Luckily, when I went back home, all the photos were safe. =)


沿着坟墓直走,我来到了Y字路口。之前看谷歌地图时,要到四季新天地的话在Y字路口要转右。至于要怎么认得是哪个Y字路口呢,地标就是旁边的Shell油站了。可是我没想到的是这个Shell油站竟然是被坟墓包围着的,在里面工作的员工一定是很勇敢吧。

Walked along the graveyard and I came to a Y-junction. Previously I saw on Google map that to reach All Seasons Place, I have to turn right when I came to a Y-junction. As to know which is correct the Y-junction, the landmark would be the Shell petrol station at the side. What I didn't expected was that this Shell petrol station is actually surrounded by the graveyard. I bet the workers worked at there must be very brave one.


转右后我就一直沿路直走。走了超过半小时后还是不见四季新天地的踪影。这时我开始怀疑自己是否走错路了,因为看谷歌地图时好像是没有很远的。我从裤袋取出我的电话,正当我要拨电话询问住在附近的朋友时,四季新天地就出现在我面前了。

After turning right, I walked along the main road. I have walked for more than half an hour and I still can see any sign of All Seasons Place. I started to doubt the road I have taken as when I saw at Google map it wasn't that long of a distance. I took out my mobile phone and just when I was about to phone my friend who is staying nearby for the direction, All Seasons Place has appeared in front of me.


到了四季新天地,第一件事就是去寻找星期五博客聚的地方。

When I reached All Seasons Place, the first thing I do was to find the place for the bloggers' gathering on this Friday.


走着走着就看到了。这就是我将要去的地方啦,东炎不败!

This is the place I will be going on this Friday, Tomyummy Noodles House


其实,一路走来我都没有看见巴士经过,也没看见巴士站。后来我问了那里的保安,他告诉我说他在这里工作已经一个月了,但是却从来没有看见任何巴士经过。过后他向我讨RM1,说他想买水喝。我经他得到了一些资讯所以我也不是很介意给他RM1。给了他RM1后,他突然变得更热情了,他告诉我说要搭巴士的话需要走到大路才可。看来我也没得选了,星期五当天只好早点搭巴士去,然后再走一段距离了。

Actually, when I was walking along the All Seasons Place, I didn't saw any bus passed by and there wasn't any bus stop along the way. I saw a security at there and I asked him what bus I have to take to reach here? He told me that he hasn't seen any bus passed by for the one month period he has been working at there. Then he asked for RM1 from me and I gave him since I have gotten some information from him. He then told me that there is a bus stop at the main road. Well, I guess I have no other choice but to go earlier on this Friday and walk a little bit.


我离开四季新天地时已经是下午五点半,心想好像有点迟了,在犹豫着还要不要去升旗山。然后我告诉自己,不如这样子好了,如果七点之前抵达升旗山的话就上山拍夜景,如果赶不及就下次再来好了,反正我也已经去过了。我继续我的路程,然后看见这间香严寺。这时我很肯定地告诉自己说我走对路了!(其实一路上是有点迷茫了,因为不熟悉那一带)

I left All Seasons Place at 5.30pm. I was thinking that the time was a bit late already and I was hesitating whether or not to continue my journey to Penang Hill. Then, I told myself that if I reach Penang Hill before 7pm, then I will go up the hill and do the night view shooting, if not I will just have to go next time. I continued my journey and I saw this Chinese temple. Now, I was pretty sure that I was in the right way! (actually I was a bit lost as I wasn't familiar with that area)


走着走着。。。。。咦?怎么有间回教堂呢?啊,原来我走错方向了!!!那时天空飘着乌云,而我又走错路了,真的很想就这样放弃,回家。但是我还是选择坚持,往香严寺的方向走回去!

I walked and walked and I saw a mosque appeared on my right hand side. Hmm? Why was there a mosque? Ahh! I have walked the wrong way!!! The exact opposite way of the Penang Hill!!! That time the sky was crowded with dark cloud, and I was walking the wrong way, it was indeed really demotivating for me to continue my journey. However, I insist on to continue my journey and I walked back to the direction of where the Chinese temple is.


接下来的路上,我看见了钟灵中学,这次我敢肯定我是走对路了。

In the later journey, I saw this Chung Ling High School. I was pretty sure that this time I was in the correct way.


一路上还看见了这间被遗弃的豪宅,看起来像是会闹鬼的感觉。

On the was I saw this abandoned mansion. It looks like a haunted mansion to me.


后来我来到了这个槟榔屿华侨抗战纪念碑,这次我可以100%大声地说我走对路了!!!哈哈~

Then I reached this monument. Now, I can 100% say out loudly that I was in the right way!!! haha~


只要沿着这条道路走到尽头就能到升旗山了。

I just have to walk along this road until the end and I will reach Penang Hill.


终于来到升旗山入口了,抵达时正好是傍晚七点。从我家出发到这里一共耗了四小时四十五分钟,明明就只有十五公里的路程可是我却用了这么长的时间,看来我是退步了。

Finally I have reached the entrance of Penang Hill! I reached there at 7pm sharp and I have used 4 hours and 45 minutes for the 15km journey. I have used much more time than I expected this time, it seems like I have to admit that I wasn't young anymore.


我到的时候并没有很多人,应该是周日的缘故吧。

There weren't many people at that time. I think maybe it was because it was a weekday.


前往升旗山上的缆车道。

The rail road for the cable car.


我在购票时给了售票员我的大马身份证和我的学生证(Matriculation时期的,2008/2009)。售票员问我是否我的学生证还可以用,我告诉他不能用了。然后我又告诉他我的大学学生证不见了,所以我才给了他Matriculation的学生证(我没有说谎哦,我的大学学生证真的是不见了,只是我没告诉他我已经毕业了。。嘻嘻~)。原本以为售票员会向我索取大马成人票价的(RM8),万万没想到的是他却向我收学生的票价(RM4),看来是我赚到了。。哈哈!

During the ticket purchasing, I showed the ticket seller my IC and my student card (my Matriculation student card, 2008/2009). The ticket seller asked me whether my student card still can use or not. I told him that the student card cant use already but I have lost my university student card so I just showed him the matriculation one (I wasn't lying. My USM student card really went missing. Only that I didn't told him that I was graduated already..hehe). At first I thought that the ticket seller will asked me pay for the adult price (RM8), but who knows in the end he only asked for the student price (RM4). I was really lucky..haha!


上缆车时想要去抢前头座的,不过我的步伐始终没有游客们来得快,所以在缆车里无法拍到缆车道的照片了。不过没关系,我到了山上时拍了这张缆车道补回了。

When the cable car arrived, I wanted to sit at the front part of the cable car so that I can shoot the photo of the rail road. However, those tourists have the greater intention to do so and they moved really fast, and so I didn't took any photo of the rail road in the end. When I reached the top, I took this photo to make up for the rail road photo.


再来一张有缆车和槟城夜景的。

Another one with the cable car and the Penang night view.


好的,现在是时候实现我的步行记的目的了 ——拍摄槟城夜景!我开开心心地走到拍夜景的地方,怎知得来的却是失望。看见这一排绿色的围板时,整个心都软了。这样的结果是我没料到的。

And now, it is time to accomplish the mission - shooting the Penang night view! I walked happily towards the best place to shoot the night view but it turns out to be a disappointment. I wasn't expecting there was a construction going on at there.


最后,我爬上了在附近的David Brown's Sky Terrace,拍下了一张有`瑕疵的槟城夜景,给自己有个交代。在山上待了十五分钟,突然就下起雨来了。其实我也算是幸运了,至少在下雨前我还是拍到了槟城夜景,要懂得感恩啊~

At last, I went up to the David Brown's Sky Terrace nearby and shot a Penang night view with flaw. After staying at the hill top for 15 minutes, it started to rain. Actually, I should considered myself lucky that I managed to shoot a Penang night view photo before it rains. I should be grateful~ =)
