Housing - Paka

Housing

Housing Estate for Employees

The employees of Petronas live at the Paka housing estate which was developed by the Company. It is a large estate with a few different designs of houses. I took this picture from the road, so it doesn't look like much. In reality, the houses are attractive, reasonable size and with gardens and good roads. The houses are located within easy reach of the office complex and the golf country club.

The nearest airport is the Kerteh airport, (which used to be served by MAS) but I believe that it is only used for charter flights now.

Petronas Refinery - Paka

Petronas Refinery

View the Refinery from outside

The Petronas Refinery here is the largest in the Peninsular Malaysia. It is so large there is an entire township built around it. The only other place with this scenery is the town of Miri in East Malaysia.

The township consists of Kertih & Paka and is self-contained with its own houses, shops, office complex and even a golf country club.

Paka arch - Paka

Paka arch

Have a Look at the Arch

Just before the turn off to Kertih Port, look out for the rather impressive arch that is done up in bright yellow (Yellow is the colour of royalty). The words on the arch refer to the Sultan of Terengganu and his Queen, and asks Allah to "watch over/bless" them. (the Malay words used were "Allah Pelihara Al Sultan dan Tuanku Permaisuri Terengganu)
