Malaysia – Georgetown; The continuation search for Street Art (5)

This is my 2nd time walking on Lebuh Armenian on foot and each time I come, I find and see different things.

A typical old shop house. Inside, an old man making a rattan chair by hand. This is something you do not see much anymore.

Taipei – The City @ Night

Going out to Taipei city at night is always interesting especially near the Taipei 101 and the shopping area near there. In fact, near that area is also the office area. So there will be lots of tourist, local and also the office staffs.

It is wasted that the government did not put a briefly information of the history of each building after the restoration (some of them have and some do not) as it will help the tourist and also the locals to understand the history of them but they did put in a good effort.

Lunch in Georgetown….

Penang has a lot of old heritage buildings especially in Georgetown. One has to walk around to enjoy all this.

I was having lunch @ Mizi Bistro in New World Park on Shatow Lane ( you can read more on this on my food blog) and this area has a lot of old buildings where they have been restored beautifully and also painted colourfully. 😊
