Cycling & Explore <b>Balik Pulau</b>, The Other Side Of Penang | NICK <b>...</b>

Cycling At Balik Pulau, The Other Side Of Penang – Last Monday, I went to the other side of Penang Island, a more rural part of Penang, a more nature part, somewhere more relax, more greens and a totally different side of the urban developed George Town – Balik Pulau. Balik Pulau also means back of Island in Malay.

It's a small town at the back of the island, with the presence of villages, padi field and many fruit and vegetable farms. I've read online that there's bicycle rental service in Balik Pulau that allows you to rent a bike to explore Balik Pulau at the same time exercise some reflexes of the feet through cycling.

I called up the person in-charged Eddie who operates the bicycle rental service and meet him up in Balik Pulau. He brought 3 bikes, one for himself, and two for me and Arron. Besides renting the bike, Eddie himself was our guide around Balik Pulau that day. I didn't think we would have a guide, I though we would be given a map and follow the trail. But then having a guide is better than following a map, Eddie was very friendly to guide us along the way, and introduced some cool places in Balik Pulau.

Our biking trail was designed by Eddie himself and the whole trip took about 2.5 hours through 20km of journey. We started about 5pm and ended at 7.30pm. Normally it's 15km only but he told us that we were fast and he brought us to explore more.

Being in Balik Pulau doesn't felt like being in Penang anymore because of the rural village and the beauty of nature. Our biking trail went through Malay village, Chinese Kampung Baru, river streams, padi fields, fruit farms, vegetable farms, fishing village, Malay's cemetery and a little beach, as well as some major road in Balik Pulau.

It's fun, it's a good exercise, but sitting too long on the bicycle makes my ass hurts. After all, Arron and I enjoyed the cycling trip, only that we missed out the Hokkien Mee and Laksa alongside Kuala Jalan Baru which only available during the weekend.

Well, the Bike Trail signage are actually set up by the government, though Eddie doesn't recommend following the signage as the trail is long and doesn't has much thing to see.


Eddie introducing a Chinese temple at Kampung Jalan Bharu.


He said that if you sees a Chinese temple presence, it means that the whole area is a Chinese populated village. Normally temple is set up at the entry point of the village as well the end point, which the Chinese god will protect the people.

Typical Chinese village house.


A rice paddy field at Balik Pulau, unfortunately, those paddy has been harvested and resulted a not-pretty paddy field scene.


It's me.


Luckily the weather was pretty nice that afternoon. Google Weather did actually reported that 70% chance of storm, but there's no rain.

Yes, this is Penang Island, doesn't look like Penang right? It's the other side of Penang, the more nature side.


A hut storing stuff.


Awas = Beware.


Our rides.


At the river mouth of Sungai Burong, where here you can get a great shot of Sunset. Unfortunately, we were still early at that time.


Looking at far, it's Pulau Betong, a fishing village and at there you can find Pasir Panjang beach.


An abandoned house that looks creepy.


Locals playing sepak takraw.


Along the main road.

I've heard that Nibong Tebal has bicycle for rental for cycling trip too, guess it'll my next destination. Cycling is fun and healthy way to explore places like this.

If you plan to go cycle at Balik Pulau, do give Eddie a call to book your bike and make appointment. He told me that there will be a Explore Balik Pulau Visitor Centre opening somewhere around May 2012 at Air Putih.

Pekena Laksa Janggus <b>di Balik Pulau</b> | BLOG JAAKECHIK.COM

Posted: 21 Jan 2014 05:01 PM PST

Selepas selesai pendaftaran kehadiran PJJ semalam aku balik ke bilik then taip blog untuk entry INI, kemudian aku terus terbongkang tido... lama aihh... asar baru bangun... hahahaha....
Kul 6.30 ptg adik ipar jaa call cakap nak ajak jaa gi pekena Laksa Janggus di Balik Pulau... ingat gak diorang apa yg jaa jaa request sebelum datang hari tu... hehehe...
Lama dah haih jaa berhasrat nak kesana, cuma belum tercapai.... :)
Benornya adik ipar jaa pun tak penah mai sini... tapi dah dia kesian kan aku yang preggy dua bulan mengidam, so depa bawak kan aku ke mari. hewhewhew. datang sini pun guna GPS tau... coz diorang pun tak kenal tempat ni...
Ini pandangan dari luar kedai tersebut


Yang kiri dan kanan tu adik ipar jaa.. yg tengah tu my biras! jaa datang sini berlima bersama si baby fahmi... biras jaa yg sorang lagi takde dalam ni... coz terselindung di blkg.... adik ipar jaa ni dedua duk di Penang.
Itu yang heppy sgt jaa sekarang nih. nak gi memana ada jer sudi bawakkan... kat sini diorang beri layanan first class. jaa di layan bagai puteri... ohhh terharu betoi laa.... 
Masing2 berebut nak suruh jaa tido di rumah mereka! bab makan lak usah cerita... ramai yang nak payungkan.... ermmm syukur alhamdulillah... jimat duit aku... kahkahkah...

Kat sini kena layan diri... masa jaa tanya apa yang best, diorang suggestkan Laksa dan Bihun Th'ng. cara sebut nama menu ni (Th'ng) ialah dengan cara menyebut awalan kepada "Tengkuk".

Semangkuk Th'ng ialah RM3.50. kitorang order 2 mangkuk... makanan ni ala-ala chinese food... Th'ng itu ialah sambalnya (di campur dalam bihun/mee). sedikit pedas dan manis2.. :)
Tapi sayang gambar lupa nak snap!

Jaa pulak makan laksa special. harga RM4.00 semangkuk. laksa biasa RM3.00. bezanya ialah saiz mangkuk tersebut. dan komen jaa untuk laksa ini adalah.... rasanya hanyalah sedang-sedang sahaja... idok ler sedappp melambunggg or meletoppp letopp...

Just nice!
