An extract from a Bernama news report today:
Lim (Guan Eng) also said that the state government was considering a proposal to declare July 7, 2010 a public holiday to mark the recognition of Georgetown as a world heritage site by Unesco. "We will celebrate the first anniversary of the recognition on July 7 this year, and we are considering declaring a public holiday on that date next year," he said.Good for George Town. I mean, the public holiday is secondary but the celebration of the UNESCO recognition is primary to George Town and by extension, to Penang. And I hope come this month-end, UNESCO will clear George Town of any wrong-doing in the controversy surrounding the four proposed high-rise hotels in the city.
Anyway, Bernama should also be taken to task for continually mis-spelling the name of the city. Someone should tell the Chief Editor that it's GEORGE TOWN (two words) and not Georgetown (one word).
