ASICS Penang Bridge International Marathon 2014

This is the first time I am up the bridge without the car. We tried something different instead of walking. We ride our bicycles. The bike I was riding was a bit defective. I was a little distracted because of that. Note to self, get a properly working bike.

This year, the event is very different. Apart from being held at the 2nd Penang Bridge, it is also much more social media oriented. Runners were seen fiddling with their smartphones and taking #selfies during the marathon.

九皇爺 Festival 2014

I attend this event almost every year. I enjoy this kind of event where I can freely shoot and get the best out of it.

The Nine Emperor Gods Festival is a nine-day celebration on the first to the ninth day of the ninth lunar month of the Chinese calender.
