I started using WordPress primarily to share the photos taken by me, mostly of those taken in Penang, a small but beautiful island off the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Having born, live and work here, there is still something that amazes me on every street or corner of this island, and in particular George Town. At the same time, this blog helps me to rediscover the rich heritage and history of the island, and is every bit a learning journey. For instance, not many know that Cheong Fatt Tze mansion is one of the two such mansion outside China; Cannon Street is named so because of the cannons being fired during a clan war/riot back in the old days; or that Dr Sun Yat-sen also reportedly conducted his first speech in Penang at the Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Centre, just to name a few.
I hope this will be a nice place to provide pictorial discovery for those intending to visit Penang.
I like drawing since I was small and I found that photography is also another medium of capturing and showing what you see or feel with your mind and heart. All of my pictures are usually taken with my compact cameras and mobile phone camera and most of them are edited via Photoshop. I enjoy taking photos and then experimenting on them with Photoshop (or as most refer to it as photo manipulation).
Lastly, I hope you enjoy your stay here, however brief it may be, and feel free to provide any comment that you may have. 🙂
