Driving down the North-South highway from Perlis back to Kuala Lumpur, after our short holiday recently, gives us the opportunity for a quick drive-through tour of Penang Island, ingressing the island via the first cross-channel Penang Bridge from Prai to the USM Interchange, a quick run-around and a 'Nasi Kandar' lunch in the city center, and doubling back past the USM interchange to egress the island via the Sultan Abdul Alim Muazzam Shah Bridge, which crosses over from Batu Maung to Bandar Cassia (Batu Kawan) in Seberang Perai on the mainland.

Locally referred to as the Second Link, the bridge was opened in 2014 and has a distance span of  24 kilometers, making it the longest in Malaysia and the second longest in Southeast Asia, next only to the 30 kilometers Sultan Haji Omar Ali Saifuddien Bridge, or the Temburung Bridge, in Brunei, which was opened in 2020. The bridge crosses Brunie Bay to connect mainland Brunei to the semi-exclave of Temburong. It was a bright and sunny day, with plenty of cloud cover, and the panoramas across the bridge were fantastic.

These images were shot on the 12.5x Optical Zoom 16MP CCD Olympus VR-370 travel zoom, which are palm-sized digital camera cameras, compact enough to slip into your shirt pocket or a small purse, looking none too obvious. Post-processing and cropped-frame were done on Olympus Workspace.
