Chen Chee Hong and Penang Hill

I met Chee Hong at our MOAR (Mother Of All Reunions) after 40 odd years and again up No. 3 point on the Penang Hill climb during CNY. A retired teacher now, he spends his time helping out at the No. 3 & No. 5 hill stations. He says on most days he climbs up there in the afternoons.

Here are pictures of Chen Chee Hong making coffee for all climbers up at No 3 on the track to Penang Hill and the beautiful view from there. The tea and coffee, even beehoon and mee for climbers are all free. Climbers donate to the coffers. So if you are ever up there in the afternoon, do look out for Chee Hong. Donations are welcome when you climb.

When in Penang, Malaysia

Dear Fran: In Penang, please try the KAYU Nasi Kandar restaurant at Penang Road for delicious Indian-Muslim curries, bread, etc. ... For very good Chinese cooking, please try the restaurant located at the OFA (Old Frees' Association) ... or at the Chinese Recreation Club (CRC - No. 3, Jalan Padang Victoria, 10400 Georgetown, Penang, 604-2299157) ... For the numerous delicious out-door hawker food, I have no idea because my cousins drove and I simply ate!

How not to get sick on an airplane

According to an ABC News story, the way to avoid getting sick on an airplane is to wrap yourself in a sterilized bubble before boarding ... or don't fly.

Actually, some of the advice is just as impractical: don't sit within 5 rows of anyone sneezing or 3 rows of anyone coughing.

Other suggestions are a bit more under your control: Don't use the lavatory. Don't use the tray table. Use a hand sanitizer. Use a surgical mask. Turn the overhead air on.

The longer you're on a packed airplane, the greater the chance you'll walk off sick.

A lot of travelers blame stale recycled air. But scientists say that's not the problem. Most larger planes now have special systems that filter out germs and let some outside air in.

"The problem is actually your [fellow] passengers that are seated in proximity to you," said Dr. Philip M. Tierno, Jr., director of clinical microbiology and diagnostic immunology at New York University Medical Center. "The closer the passengers are to you the worse it is for you if they have some sort of illness like a simple cold."

"Fliers Must Dodge Hidden Germs: Where Are the Germ Hotspots? Hint: Avoid the Restroom," ABC News, January 14, 2006

The longer you live, the greater your chance of getting sick...
