U.S. Warships Spotted off the Coast of Penang!

While taking photos for a little thing called Project Trafford on June 4th, 2008, we saw 2 U.S. Navy warships and a cruise liner off the coast of Fort Cornwallis. It wasn't until a couple of days later till we found out their names and purpose in Penang.

So ladies and gentlemen, may I present to you the USS Cape St. George, a state-of-the-art Ticonderoga-class guided missile cruiser:

This is its escort, the USS Halsey, an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer:

Now for something different, we spotted this ship right beside the navy vessels. This is the Sun Princess, an Australian luxury cruise liner carrying 2,600 passengers.

  3. Warships are escorted with luxury cruisers. Better than the days I was in the Marine Corps! Well, the Navy as a rep to be lazy.

    Good to have your country under the protective eye of the US.

  4. Ipohchai: They probably chased away those pesky pirates. :P

  5. Dear Blogger,


    My name is Edward Skading, from Selangor, Malaysia. I am writing for your viewpoint and support towards a good cause campaign to protect and uphold our consumer rights.

    I am being sued by an arrogant corporate company (F&N Dairies (M) Sdn Bhd) because I exposed a horrible discovery concerning one of their products on my weblog. It is all about my shocking finding of an abnormal substance (mould) in a “Tea Pot” brand, sweeten condensed milk tin-can. You can read the full story (all the correspondence letters) and view photos of the contaminated milk and the disgusting hazardous conditions of F&N Dairies’ plant at my weblog

    As a consumer, I am sickened by the fact that we are not provided utmost protection from this sort of situations and whatever consumer rights we have now are defenceless. I also feel that my human rights had been deprived when I am being forced to silence and on top of all, I feel cheated when the company executive responded to my grievances that they are not liable for damaged products in the marketplace.

    I am only requesting that the company be truthful, reliable and accountable for their mistakes, moreover produce cleaner and safer food. I believe, it is the responsibility of our whole society to protect the rights and benefits of consumers, and all concerned parties should together strive to do the work of standing up for consumer rights, improving the consumption environment, and pushing for faster, better economic and social development.

    I sincerely hope you will cover my story on your weblog and tell it to the world. I would greatly value and appreciate your kind support.

    If you wish to contact me, please send an email to

    Thank you.

    Yours truly,

    Edward Skading
