The best curry house in town
My favourite restaurant in Penang, a curry restaurant owned and managed by so far, six generations of an Indian Muslim family. Although the appearance is somewhat rustic (to put it mildly), the food here is to die for. Located in the heart of old Penang.
This was taken on a rainy day in the Kek Lok Si temple in Penang.
This was taken at the entrance of Kek Lok Si temple in Penang, one of the largest Buddhist temples in South East Asia. Perched on a hill, it commands a magnificent view of the surroundings.
One of the oldest shopping streets in Penang, this was a view taken during a trishaw ride.
I spotted this wall as I was walking along Penang's Chinatown - the vividness of the blue seemed to be so out of place compared with the rest of the peeling paint surrounding it. Of course, seeing this exposed socket on an outer wall of a building where tropical rainstorms occur almost on a daily basis did not inspire much confidence! :)
Well, almost. This was taken in Georgetown in Penang.
There was no colour manipulation for the sky, just my polarizing filter gone a bit beserk!
Composition inspired by Greg Ling.
Tasik Dayang Bunting
Less romantically, it means the lake of the pregnant maiden. Legend has it that a lady who had been trying to conceive for 19 years drank water from this lake and then was blessed with a baby.
This is an fantastic, somewhat eerie freshwater lake, accessed by a 100m walk from the beach on Pulau Dayang Bunting. Great for swimming! Amazingly, the sea is immediately beyond the hills in the distance.
