"I will jump from the bridge." Jambatan Pulau Pinang (Penang Bridge) Tip by yuet29

This is a real story. People stay in penang island needs to travel by ferry to get to the other side of the main land a few years ago.

One year, a member of legislative body in penang proposed to build a bridge across two pieces of land. This proposal was treated as a joke by the opposition and the opposition said: if you could build the bridge, i will jump from the bridge!

Now the bridge is here giving conveniency to people from both sides, this story was forgotten by most of the people except my mother at home..haha
