We've shared under #PenangFunFact series before that Penang Free School (PFS) is the oldest English school 🏫 in Malaysia as well as the whole Southeast Asia.

On 2 February 2018, the school had been declared a Malaysian heritage site by National Heritage Department.

Any renovation or alteration to the 8ha of the grounds or the school building would now have to abide by the heritage guidelines. Therefore, it will be better preserved and protected for future generations.

Penang Free School is 202 years old now and the school is open to all children regardless of race or religion, hence, it was named Penang Free School.

Many luminaries had graduated from the school, including former Yang Di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Syed Sirajuddin, first prime minister Tunku Abdul Rahman, legendary actor P. Ramlee, Penang's second chief minister Dr Lim Chong Eu and former All-England badminton champion Datuk Eddy Choong.

Last week, we shared that Penang is doing reasonably well in electronics and electrical sector. In fact, Penang is also doing quite good in property sector 🏘️, as we have the highest sales performance compared to other states in terms of newly launched residential properties (for all price ranges).
.
According to the recent statistics from NAPIC, Penang topped the sales performance at 40.6% as compared to Johor at 36.1 %, Selangor at 26 % and Kuala Lumpur at 22.5%.
.
Out of this 40.6% sales performance, 50.7% is for sales of units less than RM300,000, 62.9% for sales of units less than RM400,000 and 72.9% for sales of units less than RM500,000 as of 2017 (third quarter).
.
The sales in property sector seems to have slowed down in the past 1 year across all states but we hope the economy in Penang will continue to do well in 2018.

Besides, Penang state government will continue its efforts to ensure the provision of affordable housing ranging from RM300,000 and below which is suggested by Bank Negara.

Previously we shared that Penang is the largest magnet for Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in Malaysia back in November last year. 👍👍 Not only that, the electronics and electrical sector in the manufacturing industry of Penang has been one of the main economic drivers for the state, with 1/3 of electronics and electrical investments in Malaysia in between 2008 - 2016 are in Penang

We are proud that Penang hosts the No.1 & No.2 single largest exporter in Malaysia, with Western Digital contributing RM20 billion of exports annually in 2017 or 2.3% of Malaysia's total exports, while Broadcom is expected to contribute RM70 billion by 2018 which is about 8% of Malaysia's total exports.

So far Penang has recorded a total of RM 67 billion of manufacturing investments from 2008 - June 2017. This outstanding figure has contributed to the economic of Malaysia and also offered countless job opportunities to Penang people in the past decade.

We've been experiencing an unusual low temperatures in the past few days in Penang due to the north-east monsoon affecting the east coast of the peninsula. Some areas like Balik Pulau have recorded a minimum temperature of 22°C! 😱

The rainy season in the area is pushing the northwestern wind and the clouds to the west. That is why we have seen less sun these past few days and the temperature has not risen. So don't forget to wear thicker clothing to keep warm at night especially if it's raining 🌧️.
.
Penang has a tropical climate which usually has a daily mean of around 27°C. During the day the average high is around 31°C, while at night the average low is around 24°C.

If you are enjoying the cold weather and want to enjoy it on normal day, Penang Hill is the place you should visit often. The mean minimum temperature on the Hill is 21°C while the average temperature at the central summit area ranges from 20°C to 27°C.

Penang's Swettenham Pier has surpassed Port Klang to become the number one port of call for cruise ships 🚢 in Malaysia last year.

In 2017, Swettenham Pier has seen 125 cruise ships 🛳️ called compared with 78 in Port Klang in Selangor or the terminal in Langkawi, Kedah in between January and September.

It's expected the cruise arrivals in Penang in 2017 will surpass 2016's total of 136 calls, because October, November and December are months when visitors want to escape the cold in their countries.

We also made history when Genting Dream and Mariner of the Seas, both longer than 300m respectively, berthed at Swettenham Pier together on 5 December 2017 with 7,000 passengers and 3,800 crew members. It was the first time Genting Dream arrived here.

Tourism Tax had just been implemented in Malaysia since September 2017 and Penang was the highest contributor of this new tax in the first month.

In the month of September, Penang contributed a total of RM241,460 from 292 registered lodgings. Our state's contribution is 30% more than KL's RM185,750 even though there are 718 registered lodgings in KL.

Under Tourism Tax, foreign tourists will be charged a flat rate of RM10 per room per night for all hotel classifications. In other words, there were 24,146 of booking or night stay in Penang in the whole month of September, which is quite impressive.

It shows that the tourism industry in Penang is doing well and hopefully it will be better in the year 2018!

Penang Bridge International Marathon 2017 just finished yesterday and we have another special run waiting for us on the coming Sunday (3 December 2017). After running on our iconic Penang Bridge yesterday, this coming Sunday runners 🏃 will have the chance to run to the top of another iconic building in Penang, Komtar!

Even though The Top Komtar Tower Run will be a fun run as opposed to a race, runners will still require to climb 1217 steps 😱 up to the ending point located at the 59th floor of Komtar. Running up the stairs is not the same as running on the road, so fellow runners please be prepared. 🙂
