As I publish this Bon Odori is still continuing, and fireworks are scheduled for 10PM. I couldn’t stay until then, due to other commitments, but here are a few photos from earlier this evening. There is still time to attend.
One of my favourite festivals is coming up this Saturday:
Date: Saturday 25 July
Time: 6.00pm to 11.00pm
Venue: Esplanade, Penang
Fireworks display at 10pm
Strangely it has become rainy season again. For the last week it has rained every night and / or day. And otherwise been cloudy with some sun. Thus it’s been cooler, too.
Gathering water for the garden has thus been easy.
And I’ve managed to capture some bird photos as a result of the new camera having a 30x zoom.
So, excited, it’s finally running.

Now I just need a reason to go to KL to try it out!
Hooray. Starbucks have improved their WiFi system.
Up until a few months ago one simply connected to Starbucks’ WiFi, opened a web page which went automatically to their site, clicked “I agree”, and then waited 20 seconds. Then one could use the Internet.
Next they implemented a system whereby one had also to put in the code on your receipt in order to connect – and it became very slow, and iPads won’t connect.
The latest is that when you open the web page you see a “Get WiFi” button, and when you click that you get the above page. My photo missed it, but below the Facebook etc. buttons is another which says, “I’ll do it later”. Click that and you are in. You don’t need to give them your private info. You don’t need to put in that pesky code on the receipt.
