We have no idea who planted them but Penang is currently covered with pink and white Tecoma trees.  And the views are to die for. However, we do know that four years ago, Seberang Perai Municipal Council (MPSP) President, Datuk Rozali Mohamud decided to plant 3,002 Tecoma trees around 13 spots in Seberang Perai. And boy oh boy, aren’t we all glad for this ingenious plan. Fast forward today, we are able to enjoy long spans of scenic streets filled with majestic pink trees.
