- No, this is not an Internet hoax. There is a real, 2.3-km,
cable-suspended, concrete, bridge just for your angling pleasure.
The US$40-million Pulau Bunting Bridge in Kedah, northern
Malaysia, links the mainland to an uninhabited island without any
industry. The fishing and photography haven, however, comes without
any public toilets. (This Pulau Bunting is not to be confused with
Pulau Dayang Bunting of Langkawi islands, also part of Kedah.)

- Durian flowers or blossoms is a rare treat because the trees
blooms only for a few days, normally only once a year. Preparation
is also labor-intensive. Hence restaurants do not serve them.
Durian flowers can be stir fried with meat, belacan (fermented
shrimp cake), or cookied in curry.

- What might families enjoy in Penang, Malaysia? What do reviewers
say about each attraction? We start from the ferry terminal, course
through the city, northwest for kid-friendly attractions, south to
Balik Pulau, swing around to the War Museum, aquarium, and plane
spotting. Then perhaps cross the bridge to the mainland, for a
little natural wonder - flireflies on river bank.
Please make your suggestions via Comments. The "Chops" section
includes reviews about local hawker food.

- Bamboo gun, or "bedil buluh" in Malay, is a traditional Malay
game, but it is also played in other Southeast Asia countries and
Taiwan. You can use "buah cenerai" or wet newspaper pellets for
bullets. The "modernized" and safer version may use drinking straw
and rolled-up wet tissue paper. Interestingly, a series of copycat
bloggers apparently built on one another's writings and images, and
eventually left an enriched set of instruction about how to build
this traditional toy.
