The architecture of Penang reflects the 171 years of British presence on the island, coalescing with local,Chinese, Indian, Islamic and other elements to create a unique and distinctive brand of architecture. Along withMalacca, Penang is an architectural gem of Malaysia and Southeast Asia.
A very quiet street on a Sunday afternoon. The one and only Indian mini mart at Lebuh Malayu is the only shop that is open. Just when i have finished the sketch around 4pm, it closes.
Makan Ban Leong Ean at Armenean Street. For a moment, a warm gentle breeze blew, and leaves began falling off from the surrounding trees and I thought to myself "Autumn in Penang"!
The white-washed George Town World Heritage Inc at Carnarvon Street. Most of the buildings in the vicinity were built before modern conveniences like air-conditioning, and since white colour reflects the sun and keeps the buildings cool, they were painted white.
