~ A Place I Feel Connected With ~

Bukit Mertajam is on the mainland of Peninsula Malaysia. It belongs to the Penang state. It is my birth place. The exact location of where I was born is the General Hospital in Bukit Mertajam (and mum had a bad experience there and from then on, she swore that was the last time she would go there).

As a small girl, my family re-located to Johor Bahru, some more than 650km away from where we used to live. However, we still feel very much connected with this place.

I still remember those day when I used to miss coming back to Penang during school vacation. I usually spend my school holidays back in B.M. / Penang.

Much have changed here. So much so that I cannot recognise some roads / streets and places. Gosh!

    The mystery of honey-bee finally revealed. My birth place lagi "gai" man.
