【步行记】环绕槟岛八十公里(下) Round Penang Island 80KM On Foot (Part 2)

步行环绕槟岛八十公里
Round Penang Island 80KM On Foot

上篇写到我越过了直落巴巷水坝,完成了旅程的一半(40公里)。当时天气炎热,加上斜坡路,走起来真的有点辛苦。现在我足足比原定计划迟了两小时,所以我决定加快脚步。但没多久,我又开始放慢脚步了。当时双脚开始感觉疼痛,肚子也开始打鼓。于是我把剩余的三个面包当午餐享用。走着走着突然听见有狗吠声,过后看见两只狗冲着我来。不知是否遇狗经验多,看见这两只狗时我很镇定,能辨认出它们是没有攻击性的。不远之处有个空着的榴莲档口,我在那里休息一会儿,和狗狗玩了起来。

In Part 1, I have reached Teluk Bahang Dam and have completed half of my walking trip (40 KM). At that time, the weather was really hot and the road was slanting, which made my walking even difficult. By now, I was two hours delayed according to the plan so I decided to walk faster. Yet, I began to slow down minutes later as my legs were feeling painful. As I walked, I started to feel hungry so I ate the last three buns as my lunch. Out of the blue, I heard dog's bark and then I saw two dogs were charging towards me. Due to the many dog encountered experiences I had, I was calm when I saw these two dogs as I know that they were harmless. I rested a little at the empty stall nearby while playing with the dogs.

在榴莲档口休息了十分钟后,我继续赶路。这时的我像个行走丧尸,以龟速前进。走了很久,终于抵达下一个地标了。下午一点二十分抵达热带水果园(41.5公里),当时天气炎热,身体状况欠佳,所以我决定在那里小休片刻。

After a 10 minutes rest at the durian stall, I continued my journey. At this time, I was really tired that I walked like a zombie, progressing my journey at a really slow pace. After a long walk, finally I have reached my next checkpoint, Tropical Fruit Farm (41.5 KM). The weather at that time was pretty hot and my body condition wasn't so good, so I have rested a little at the Tropical Fruit Farm.

我在热带果园那里休息十分钟,洗个脸后(那里有厕所)继续前进。话说,那个休息站的长凳真的很大个咯,和我身体的比例完全不搭。

I rested for 10 minutes at Tropical Fruit Farm, washed my face (there was a toilet at there) and then continued walking. By the way, the bench was really big!

接下来的路就比较轻松些,天气开始转凉,山路是下坡路,所以走得没有很吃力。走着走着,突然有辆货车停下来,司机问我要不要搭顺风车?我向他挥了挥手表示不要,他向我笑笑然后就把货车开走了。走到这个瀑布时,脑海里浮现出与社服在这里野餐的画面,好怀念啊!之前经过宝盛园时原本也想要拍张照的,那里也有我和社服的回忆。不过当时刚好有对情侣在那里暧昧着,我等了很久他们还是不走,所以我只好放弃拍摄了。

The road after the Tropical Fruit Farm was easier to walk as it was going down the hill. The weather at that time was cloudy so it wasn't so hot. Suddenly, I saw a lorry stopped at the front. The driver asked me want to have a free ride or not? I waved my hand at him and rejected his offer. The driver smile at me and then drove the lorry away. I walked further and I reached Titi Kerawang waterfall. This is another place I that hold memory with She Fu as we ever have a picnic together at there.

下午三点,我来到了义合豆蔻厂,也就是说我终于要告别山路了!直落巴巷山路果然不简单啊,这一走就走了三小时。抵达豆蔻厂时太阳又开始出来了,并在接下来的路上一直猛烈地照耀着我!

I reached Ghee Hup Nutmeg Factory at 3 PM, which means the end of the mountain road was not far away! I have took 3 hours to walk on the Teluk Bahang mountain road and it wasn't easy at all! When I reached nutmeg factory, the sun came out to say hi, and he accompanied me "fiercely" all the way afterward.

步行环绕槟岛八十公里

我向豆蔻厂老板,郑先生要了一瓶豆蔻水(郑先生不收我钱)并买了一包香蕉酥。豆蔻厂的香蕉酥是我的最爱,每次去都一定会买来吃。不过香蕉酥涨价了,而且分量好像也变少了。

I asked the owner for some nutmeg water (he give it to me for free) and bought a pack of banana chips. The nutmeg factory's banana chips is my favourite of all time, but the price seems to have increased and the quantity was lesser.

越过山路后来到了新民学校,也就是下一个地标(47公里)。原本是计划要在中午十二点抵达这里的,不过。。。哎,比预计时间迟了三个钟。当时心想这样下去的话,肯定会在天黑后才到家了。

Passing through the mountain road and I came to SJK (C) Sin Min, which is the next checkpoint (47 KM). The original plan was to reach here at 12 PM, but... Haiz, I was more than three hours late! If I continued to progress this way, I am sure to reach home very late!

步行环绕槟岛八十公里

接下来只需要沿着Jalan Sungai Rusa走就能抵达浮罗山背市镇了。话说,这里的居民还真的是很爱国啊!国旗四处可见!

Next, I just have to follow this Jalan Sungai Rusa and I will eventually reach Balik Pulau town. By the way, the people here were really patriotic! Malaysia's flags can be seen all over the place.

步行环绕槟岛八十公里

当时真的真的很热,一路上都没有树木可以遮荫,我的双脚也开始产生剧痛,所以每看见有巴士站我就停下休息五分钟。与上次步行到巴眼色海不同的是,这次休息后并没有稍微恢复体力,反而变本加厉,我想应该是这次走太远了,双脚不怎么能承受过多压力。

It was super duper hot at that time. There were no trees along the way for me to hide under their shades and my legs were severely painful already. Thus, I took a 5 minutes short break at the bus stops along the way. However, this time it was different from the time I walked to Bagan Serai. My legs' pain didn't reduced after the short break but became worse. I think that this time I really have walked too much that my legs cant take the stress.

步行环绕槟岛八十公里

其实我曾经在Jalan Sungai Rusa步行过两次了,不过那两次都觉得没什么,感觉很短而已。但是,这次却因为炎热天气及极度疲惫的身心而感觉怎么一直走都走不完?我开始变得不理性,一路走着一路抱怨,怎么还没走到尽头啊?!

Actually I have been walking on this Jalan Sungai Rusa twice but I didn't feel any stress during that two time. In fact, I felt like it was just a short distance. However, this time, due to the hot weather and the exhausted body and mind, I felt like the road never came to an end. I began to think irrationally and started to blame the road for being so long.

步行环绕槟岛八十公里

差不多下午五点我走到了下一个地标,SK Titi Teras(52公里),比原定计划迟了差不多四个小时。很明显的,我的步行是越走越慢了。这时我已经无法集中精神,没怎么去注意来往的车辆,都是等车辆开到靠近我时才发现它们的存在。

I reached the next checkpoint, SK Titi Teras (52 KM) at around 5 PM, which was almost four hour late than the original plan. Obviously, I walked slower and slower. At that moment, I already cant focus my mind and I wasn't aware of the cars on the road until they get near to me.

步行环绕槟岛八十公里

抵达浮罗市镇时天气已经没有那么热了,但是我已经无法大步行走,因为脚板疼痛。这时我开始感觉想睡觉,我已经一整天没睡了。

The weather wasn't that hot already when I reached Balik Pulau town. At that time, I cant walked fast as my legs were really painful. I felt sleepy as I have been awake for one whole day.

步行环绕槟岛八十公里

接下来将随着这条Jalan Balik Pulau直走直到抵达下个地标。其实我走到这里时已经比预计时间多出很多,当初会凌晨两点从家里出发是为了要避免峇都丁宜山路、直落巴巷山路以及直落公巴山路。但是依现在的进展看来恐怕是无法避免夜间行走直落公巴山路了,我记得有一次晚上乘搭朋友车经过时那里是完全无灯的。我试着加快脚步,但是当时真的是办不到,快走不到十步结果又慢下来了。

Next, I will have to walk along this Jalan Balik Pulau to reach the next checkpoint. When I reached Balik Pulau, I was already few hours late from the planned schedule. Originally, I planned to depart from my house at 2 AM as to avoid walking the mountain road of Batu Feringgi, Teluk Bahang and Teluk Kumbar at night. However, as the way I was progressing, I was afraid that I will have to pass through Teluk Kumbar mountain road at night. As I recalled, last time when I passed through Teluk Kumbar mountain road at night by car, it was completely dark with no lighting. I tried to walk faster but it was no use as I started to slow down again after few steps of fast walking.

这间是位于Jalan Balik Pulau的法庭,感觉它的建筑风格很特别所以就把它拍下来了。走到这里时,我开始有想放弃的念头了,看见路上来往的巴士时真的很想直接乘搭巴士回家。一路走着我就一路催眠自己说还剩三十公里就走完了。虽然心里明白对于现在的我来说三十公里真的很长,但那份想要完成这趟旅程的坚持来得更加强烈。我就这样一路催眠自己,一路摇摇晃晃地走下去。

This is the court at Jalan Balik Pulau. I took photo of it because the architectural style is very special to me. Actually, I felt like giving up my journey when I walked until here. Whenever I saw the Rapid bus passed by, I have the strong desire to just take the bus and go back home. However, I know that I must complete this journey regardless the pain (I told myself before I depart so I have to keep that promise I made to myself). I hynotised myself by telling myself that the trip was just another 30 KM left and keep moving forward like a walking dead.

下一个地标,玛拉高等技能学院(57公里)。走到这里时已经多出了四小时多,真担心会赶不及在黑夜前抵达山路。我给自己两个选择,一就是慢步行走,多休息,让自己走得好些,反正也可能赶不及了所以就慢慢来。二是快步行走,现在距离黑夜还有大概两小时,说不定走快些能在黑夜来临前抵达山路(我其实不清楚山路还有多远)。虽然慢步行走比较明智,但我还是选择了快步行走。

Next checkpoint, MARA High Skill College (57 KM). I was more than four hours delayed when I reached MARA. I was really worried that I cant make it to the mountain road before night. I gave myself two choices, one is to walk slowly and rest properly as the probability of not making it to the mountain road before night is high. Second is to walk faster as there are still some time before the sky completely turns dark, maybe I can make it on time if I walk faster (actually I was not sure how far the mountain road was). Though to walk slowly would be a wiser choice, yet I have chose to walk faster.

步行环绕槟岛八十公里

才决定要走快快就杀出了一条上坡路!虽然当时我的脚不允许我快走,但我坚持要快步行走,无视双脚的疼痛。走在上坡路时又有一辆经过的货车司机问我去那里,但是他没有把货车停下,我还没来得及反应他就已经走远了。话说,槟城人还真贴心啊~

Soon after I decided that I want to walk faster, a slanting road appeared before me. It was really demotivating! Though my legs weren't allowed me to walk any faster, yet I insisted on walking fast ignoring the pain of my legs. While walking on the slanting road, a lorry driver passed by me asked me where do I go? He didn't stopped his lorry so when I realised what was his question, he already went far away from me. By the way, Penangites are really caring.

步行环绕槟岛八十公里

穿过上坡路我来到了天桥大道。当时依然是快走,但是感觉没那么吃力了。为什么呢?我觉得这跟环境有很大的关系。在天桥大道上能看见日落美景,天气凉爽。环境的好坏直接影响我的心态,而我的心态决定步行的动力。在天桥上我一路走一路望着日落,忘了脚还是疼痛的事实。

After passing through the slanting road, I came to the flyover highway. I was still walking in a fast pace, but I felt the walk has became easier. Why? I think that the main factor was the environment. On the flyover, I can see the beautiful view with the sunset scene. The weather at that time was cloudy and windy. The environment has directly affected my attitude and it was my attitude that decide the difficulty of the trip. On the flyover highway, I was looking at the sunset while walking forward and I tend to forget the pain of my legs.

步行环绕槟岛八十公里

我发现天桥大道上有个地方可以拍摄日出,可以开车抵达的。虽然很想看太阳与海相吻的场景,但我必须赶路,因为还有大概一小时就要天黑了。

I have found a nice place beside the flyover highway that can see the sunset view. Though I wished to see the scene of the sun kissing the sea, but I have to go as the sky will turn dark in about one hour.


途中经过小云顶,这是另一个我与社服的回忆。还记得上次我们是在这里办小学营庆功宴的,那个小学营是我参与社服的第一个营,也是个让我哭的地方。

On the way, I passed through Little Genting, which is another piece of memory I had with She Fu. We had our camp's celebration dinner at there. That was the first camp I have participated in She Fu and it was the place where I cried in public.

步行环绕槟岛八十公里

话说,这条天桥大道还蛮长一下的,我花了将近一小时才把它走完。

By the way, the flyover highway is really a long one. I have spent almost an hour walking on it.

步行环绕槟岛八十公里

傍晚七点半,我抵达下一个地标,PUSPAKOM(61.5公里)。当时天色已暗,看来是赶不及在黑夜前抵达山路了。反正也来不及了,所以我决定放慢脚步,寻找可以吃晚餐的地方。

I reached the next checkpoint, PUSPAKOM (61.5 KM) at 7.30 PM. The sky has starting to turn dark and it seems that I have failed to reach the mountain road before night. Since I cant make it on time, I decided to walk slowly and look for a place to have my dinner.

步行环绕槟岛八十公里

我一在路边看见饮食档口就马上找个位置坐下,当时走到连背部都开始疼痛,真的有点不想再走了。我点了一碟Paprik炒饭和一杯Teh Ice。这一餐晚餐花光了我的零钱,钱包里只剩下一张RM100纸钞。我是故意这样做的,因为没了零钱我就无法乘搭巴士回家(我怕我坚持不住)。我还真的是把自己逼到了绝境啊!

As soon as I saw a food stall at the roadside, I quickly find a place to sit down. At that time, not only my legs were severely in pain but my back started to feel pain as well. I ordered a Paprik fried rice and one Teh Ice. This dinner has caused me all my small notes leaving me with a RM100 note. I purposely do so so that I don't have the money to take Rapid bus back home (I scared that I might give up and take the bus back home). I was leaving me with no other option other than to continue walking.

步行环绕槟岛八十公里

我在马来档口休息了三十分钟,原本以为休息久了脚就会没事的,怎知一起身的那一瞬间双脚变得非常酸痛,那种感觉就像是在大草场上跑了十圈第二天早上睡醒后的第一感觉!我像个掰咖一拖一拖往前走,没多久就来到了进入美湖的路口,接下来的路都是我熟悉的了。

I took a long rest (30 minutes) at the Malay stall. At first I thought that my legs will be less painful after the long rest, but who knows once I get up from the sit, my legs were terribly painful in that instant. The feeling was like the moment you woke up in the next day after a 10 rounds run at the stadium running track. I continued to walk like a zombie and soon I came to the entrance road to Gertak Sanggul. I was familiar with the roads from here onwards.

步行环绕槟岛八十公里

大概晚上九点多,我来到了我一直担心的黑暗山路。但是,现在这条山路有路灯了!一路上也有车辆经过,我也在车灯的照耀下行走。虽说有路灯,但是一旦没有车辆经过时,山路还是黑漆漆,阴森森的。这条山路其实没有很长,我一下子就穿过去了。

At nine something, I reached the dark mountain road that I was worried about. However, the mountain road was installed with lamps (previously don't have) and there were cars along the way. I walked under these little light source along the mountain road. When there were no cars passing by, the mountain road was still quite dark even though it was installed with lamps. The mountain road wasn't that long and I have passed through it shortly.

这个交通灯是下一个地标(66公里),右转就会走到峇都茅了。虽然还有十四公里,但现在我连走一百米都觉得很远。双脚已经疼痛得难以忍受,现在完全是在靠毅力走下去的。

This traffic light is the next checkpoint (66 KM). Turning right will lead me to Batu Maung area. Though I still have another 14 KM to go, but I felt like walking another 100 meter is a very long distance for me! My pain on my legs was unbearable. They were at their limit already. What keep me from moving forward was my strong determination.

步行环绕槟岛八十公里

走着走着,我开始感觉有点不行了。我找个地方坐下休息并喝下一罐红牛。不过红牛似乎也起不了作用了,喝下后我没变得更加精神,也没能解渴。休息五分钟后,我继续赶路。休息过后,步行似乎变得更加辛苦,反效果了!

I walked and walked and I started to feel that I cant take it anymore. I find a place to rest a bit and drank a tin of Red Bull. However, the Red Bull doesn't refreshed me even a bit and it doesn't quenched my thirst as well. After resting for five minutes, I continued walking. After the short rest, the walking seems to have become even more difficult than before. At this point, I know that resting was a no good for me.

步行环绕槟岛八十公里

晚上十点,我经过了机场。一路上没有路灯,而且道路也在修复当中,所以是相当危险的。过后一直沿着直路走,脑海里想着的都是为什么这条路那么长,怎么走也走不完。当时也开始有点神志不清,整个人摇摇晃晃地走着,时不时还会突然笑一下,整个画面就像是喝醉酒一样。后来在路上看见有警车亮着警灯朝来,后面有位黑人很努力地在慢跑。过了一会儿我才想到那位黑人一定是Penang Ultra 100的选手,于是我便一路走一路数着看看有多少位选手参与此活动。

I passed through the airport at 10 PM. There were no lamp along the way and the road was under construction, so it was really dangerous to walk on that road at night. Then, I walked along the road and I started to think that why is the road seems like endless one? I started to become delirious and walked unstably and sometimes I laughed. The whole picture was just like a drunk man walking on the road. As I continued walking, I saw the police car with it's alarm light on came from the opposite way. There was a man running slowly at the police car's back. After a while, I just realised that that man must be the participant of Penang Ultra 100. Then, I started to count the number of participants as I walked.

步行环绕槟岛八十公里

大概数了一百六十多位参赛者后,不知不觉我就来到了槟城二桥!哇,这招果然很有用啊!只顾着数,一下子就走了一小时了!此时的我已经不去管什么地标不地标的,因为我知道槟城二桥离我家不远了!

As I counted until 160 plus participants, I reached the Penang Second Link without me realising it. Well, that was really a good tactic as I have walked for another one hour as I counted the participants. Now, I have ignored the checkpoints as I knew that my house was quite near already.

步行环绕槟岛八十公里

过了二桥后就要和这些参赛者们说拜拜了,因为我们的路线不同。话说,我还真的是很佩服他们这群铁人啊。同样是环岛,不过他们却是用跑的!真的是太太太强了!

After passing through the Penang Second Link, I have to say goodbye to these participants as we were taking different route. By the way, I was really respect and amaze these participants. Though we were all rounding the Penang Island, but they were running for it! That was something really amazing!

步行环绕槟岛八十公里

难得在这么夜独自一人来槟城二桥,一定是要拍张照留念下的。

It is a rare chance for me to be alone at the Penang Second Link so late so I must took a photo to record this moment.

步行环绕槟岛八十公里

虽然心里明白还剩下十公里左右就能完成环岛,但这十公里真的是走得不容易。此时身心都疲惫到一定极限,一心只想着要回家。每当脚踩下地的那一刻,那份疼痛是痛到骨头里的,脚也开始抖了。虽痛,但我坚持不要休息,因为我怕一坐下去就很难再起身了。

Though I understand that I still left with 10 KM to go, yet this 10 KM wasn't an easy one. My body and mind have been tortured to a limit and all I wanted now was to get back home as soon as possible. Every time I took a step, my leg was really painful that the pain get into the bone. Despite that, I told myself that I have to keep walking without resting as I scared that once I sat down, I might not want to get up again.

步行环绕槟岛八十公里

终于抵达皇后湾了!以平时的速度步行的话我只需要半小时就能到家了,不过这次我却用了一小时才回到家。回家路上巧遇我的朋友,当时他开着车,问我要不要送我一程,我拒绝了他。我就是那么的固执,一定要亲自走完才算环岛,要不然我会过不来了自己那关的!

Finally I reached Queensbay. According to my normal sped, I would have reached home in half an hour, but I have took an hour for this trip. On my way back home, I bumped into my friend who was driving at that time. He asked me whether I need a ride or not and I have rejected his offer. Yes, I was so stubborn. I must walked until I step into my house otherwise I do not considered that I have round the Penang Island.

步行环绕槟岛八十公里

八十公里,二十四小时十五分钟,我完成了我的环岛梦!回到家的那一刻,我并没有很兴奋,只是在想着我为什么会那么笨,让自己经历如此痛苦(应该是我人生中经历过最痛苦的事了,肉体上和精神上)。真的,那一晚我真的觉得自己像个傻瓜一样!隔天醒来后,我依然觉得自己很傻,但我很庆幸,很庆幸我能坚持完成环岛,让我的人生多了一个值得骄傲的回忆。这份回忆虽然很痛苦,但同时也可以很甜。这完全取决于我的心态。

80 KM, 24 hours 15 minutes, I completed my round Penang Island dream. The moment I reached home, I thought that I will be excited but I don't. All I felt was just why am I so stupid, stupid enough to let me go through all the pain (this should be the most suffering experience I have ever had, both body and mind). Really, the whole night I felt like I was a fool. When I woke up the second day, I still felt that I was stupid, but I was really glad, glad that I have achieved something that I wanted for so long. I was proud that I have done it even though it was a painful one. Someday, I am sure that it will be a great memory for me.

请让我大喊一下吧
我完成我的步行环岛梦想了!!!

Let me shout out a bit
I have achieved my dream of round Penang Island on foot!!!
