I visited Penang Museum today, 15 April 2012. I have never been inside this particular museum because I did not know its correct address, location and building. I read about it and wondered but never dreamed I would even step foot inside this tiny museum. Today, my husband and I bravely made our first visit to this museum.

At the museum, I discovered that Penang was first called Pulau Ka Satu (meaning the first island). I would have certainly named it Pulau Pertama. Why did they call it Pulau Ka Satu when they were referring to it as the first island?
