Not our usual travels to exotic places, but home ground in Penang.
Last year we contracted to purchase a 2 bedroom unit in a nice condo at Miami bay not far from Batu Ferringhi. We finally got State Government approval for the purchase and collected the keys.
Our initial visit lasted only 2 and a half days, but enough time to use up 10 lit of paint and give the place a fresh look throughout.
Rediscovering the old parts of Georgetown has been a joy. Wonderful old building; the smells of so many different types of food; friendly smiles; contrasts of old and new; the great Clan temples and houses…it goes on. This is the essential heart of Penang.
The Island has a special vitality of its own and the more time to soak it in, the better.
