Sungai Petani - My Hometown

Sungai Petani (can refer as SP or San Pedro) is the second largest town in the state of Kedah Darul Aman, in the northern part of Peninsular Malaysia. . I read the name Sungai Petani has its roots from sungai meaning river and petani meaning farmer in the Malay language. Sungai Petani in full means "Farmer's River". Hmm.. interesting.. I always thought Sungai Petani refer to river in town that was dirty and smelly..

Anyway, please read what I will write about my hometown..

    Fascinating pictures of Sungai Petani Angi! I hope you are well. I just got back from a trip to Italy. So far I have only done some pages on Orvieto and Mestre. Come look when you have a chance :)

    Ouch, those mozzy bites look unpleasant; luckily I escaped without attracting them when I've been in Asia

    So, that is where you come from, Mimi! All "important" religions are represented here in a sort of idiosyncratic society; beginning of peace and brotherhood between people. Nice page for a nice place, Mimi!

    This is your best page and there is no doubt about it. Many South Indian people migrated to SE Asia during British rule and settled there. I have met a few of them , they are doing very well there.

    Looks like a nice place to live and grow up. I have not been to this part of Malaysia (except for Penang), but it would be interesting to visit Lembah Bujang.
