Malaysia – Penang Starwalk 2013; Along Georgetown Heritage Trail (2)

Welcome back to my series on the Penang Starwallk – Walk Along Georgetown Heritage Trail.

The crowd were waiting for the flag off  the 7km non-competitive walk by the Governor of Penang from the Birch House on Dato Keramat Road. (Birch House was built to serve as the office of the tin smelting plant of Escoy Smelting, known in the late 20th century as Eastern Smelting. Now is it used as HQ for one of the housing developers)


… and the walk begins.


The participants walked along Penang Road. One a normal working day, this road is packed with cars, buses and not forgetting lots of motorbikes

Malaysia – Georgetown; The continuation search for Street Art (7)

More mural painting as I continued my search in Georgetown Heritage Trail.

Walking along Gat Lebuh Chulia, there is a small entrance to a bicycle rental shop near the street of old Kwong Wah Yit Poh building and you will see a painting of brother and sister playing basketball.


Still on Gat Lebuh Chulia, opposite the children playing basketball, you will  find another street art painting of ‘Children on the swing’ on the street named Step by Step Lane.  This drawing was done by a local artist; Louis Gan.


While shooting the street art mural, I can help looking the graffiti on the iron sliding door of the back of a printing warehouse.
