Go Cart Race in Penang After 30 years, Visit Penang 2010 – 2012
There was a Go Cart Race in Penang around the Esplanade during the first week end 12th -14th March of the school holidays. As I understand it this the first Go Cart Race in Penang after 30 years. With the race there was a food bazaar as well as an Ms Umbrella Contest.
A very commendable effort by the tourism people in organizing this race. Fact is I am old enough to remember that the following were orgenise in Penang, Scout Car Race, Go Kart Race, Motobike Race and even Car Races a long time ago. Will all these event be making a comeback soon in Penang?. A Festival of Speed so to speak
On going right now in Penang is the Penang Orchid Festival located at the New Food Stalls of the Botanical Gardens 9pm to 7pm (will try to make it as I do not have any Orchid Festival this Friday) and the Penang Floral Festival will be held on the November 27th to 5th Dec 2010
After this will be the The Siddhartha Musical Show, for those who do not know what is Siddhartha (I am one of them)– The Musical is essentially an Eastern story re-told and presented in Western musical style.
