Ken went to Penang for holiday, and he sent me this postcard from Butterworth, Penang on 27 July 2000. Showing in the postcard is a Ferry. Ferry was the only transportation to connect George Town (in Penang island) to Butterworth (mainland, part of Penang state) until 1985. With the completion of Penang Bridge in 1985, the Penang Ferry Service now is an alternative way of travelling from mainland to the island of Penang. Showing at the background of the postcard is the Komtar building. It is the tallest building in Penang island.
