I plan to retire in Penang within the next couple of years. Ideally a 2 bedroom sea front condo in Tanjong Tokong. I am visiting Penang over Easter when a property agent will show me around The Quayside. Does anyone have recommendations for other options I should consider like Marina Bay and The Brezza? Must have impressive seaview and be near to a supermarket. Guess that any construction or motorbike racing noise would be reduced if facing the sea side.

Hi Kebinger, Many thanks for your valuable comments. As you say, perhaps it is too early to focus upon a particular block now, since things may well be different in a couple of years time. I'd certainly appreciate your insights closer to arrival when you will hopefully still be there. Meanwhile, I will look out for the views, or absence thereof, when I tour The Quayside. Shortage of time this trip probably rules out meeting up for a beer but I shall look forward to buying you one (or two!) the next time round. Cheers, Bob

Hi Hong Kong Bob?, Penang is a really good choice for retirement but it might be a bit early to check for a place to stay if you intend to move there in a couple of years. There are always some new condos coming up and you might have chosen an apartment with construction just starting next to you when you move in. But anyhow Marina Bay is very good choice if it is the right block (not block C) and away from Jalan Tanjong Tokong. The E&O condos around Straits Quay are in my opinion overpriced for what they offer. Only one tower has unobstructed sea view (in the moment) and all others enjoy the view into their neighbors apartment. I’m in the kitchen furniture business and did quite a number of kitchens for Cathy and other people from HK. By this I know most of the condos’ pros and and cons and if you want some insider advise we could meet for a beer when you are in Penang.

Hi all. I'm specifically looking for native English speakers to assist me with my proofreading, translation and editing services. I currently have a fantastic group of freelancers that I would like to add to. Would suit retired, semi-retired individuals with time on their hands. The majority of my work comes from Malaysian Students (payments are usually in Malaysian currency). Note: I am getting an increasing number of requests for paraphrasing ; so if this is your forte, this could be for you :-) Although I would prefer to hire expats in Malaysia (because they are generally used to Malaysian's particular ways of doing and saying things), this position is really open to anyone with an internet connection, patience, sense of humour, and a good command of the English language (the patience element is essential :-). For more details, please please please PM me as soon as possible. Kindly include a) your email address and b) a short synopsis of yourself; I will email you back as quickly as I possibly can. Thanks and kind regards, Phil

Hello Phil, I plan to retire to Penang in a couple of years on a mm2h visa. Guess I could legally do some freelance work with this? I am a British expat retired professional and living in Hong Kong. Will hope you still have need for people by the time I arrive as I may well have a lot of spare time on my hands!
