Penang – Pearl of the Orient

Penang still maintains it charm and uniqueness when I paid her a brief visit recently. I also found the people there very friendly and helpful.  Hope the new state government will spare no effort in improving its cleanliness and preserve its title as Pearl of the Orient.  I am pleased to share some snapshots of Penang here for your viewing pleasure.


Smoky KOMTAR?
KOMTAR used to enjoy the status of The Tallest Building in Malaysia before The Petronas Twin Towers came along.


Rows of pre-war shophouses with KOMTAR as the brackground.

Ubiquitous pre-war shophouses that have become one of prominent identities of Penang.
