    The clan jetties are at the sea front of Georgetown, Penang. More than 2000 ex-port workers whose contribution towards the establishment of the Penang port and the Georgetown city has largely been forgotten. They live in an endangered heritage area with their land lease having to be renewed every year. After waiting for more than over a century, the application for World Heritage City status for Georgetown hold up a hope for getting their right to land recognized.

    Suku kaum jeti terutamanya sumbangan pekerja eksport kian dilupakan. Kawasan kediaman mereka yang kian pupus, kini ada harapan untuk tanah merekan disahkan, dengan adanya permohonan Georgetown mencapai status Bandar Warisan Dunia.
