NOTE DE L'ÉDITEUR : The late Khor Cheang Kee was a pioneer of Malaysian journalism, with a career spanning over half a century. He started with the Straits Echo and the Penang Gazette, became regional editor of the Straits Times  and editorial advisor of the Star.  He wrote many popular columns for all these papers.

« The Penang Perspective » was such a column published weekly in the New Straits Times  in the middle seventies. Spanning 15 months, his column became known for its richness of material, and the style glowing with Penang's own sunny charm.

These « Perspectives » first saw print 20 years ago, but they still retain their pristine appeal. Taken together, they are one man's sentimental journey along the happy highways of his beloved Penang. Those who buy this book and join Cheang Kee on his journey will find him a really good companion.

This is the first collection of his articles. A second collection will be published soon.
