Even if you've visited a place many times, there's always something new to discover. Or in the case of Penang, something old. It's our first time visiting the Seven Terraces heritage hotel, which has been beautifully restored and furnished by a proud returning Penangite. Being a family who appreciates Straits Chinese furniture as well, this was a visual feast 😍

✥
Be mindful to others.
We made sure we visited the Cheong Fatt Mansion this time round on our first day in Penang, as they only have a few scheduled paid guided tours per day & I missed it on my last visit.
✥
We were at the ticket booth when they opened with quite a few others. Starting at the front entrance hall, the tour of about 30min covers the history of the Mansion and Cheong Fatt himself.
You could choose to either follow a English guide or Chinese guide.
Informative and well conducted. (Definitely recommend it. We enjoyed it so much, we decided right there we want to come back the following day for lunch at their restaurant. It to was an amazing experience.)
✥
✥
Now, as the other group moved to a different part of mansion ours stayed in the entrance hall. A few from our group were a bit more interested in taking photos & ended up talking so loud we had to strain to hear & which lead to them being told to please be quite.
✥
Please be mindful & respect others, your fellow travellers and the tour conductors, everyone is there for their own reason, being it the history or taking photos.
There was time after the guided tour to take photos.

Even if it doesn’t last the afternoon, for at least a small moment, November in DC felt like my childhood home.

These wall, if they could talk.
Imagine all they could tell.
❃
Why do we always want to replace when something gets a bit old.
They have history, character, embrace that.
Just look at these weathered walls, how beautiful aren't they, with a touch of art. ❃

Indigo restaurant was a pleasant surprise which we discovered on our tour through the Cheong Fatt Mansion, we immediately reserved lunch for the following day.
❃
Located on the first level of the Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion /Blue mansion hotel.
A Penang fine dinning experience, with a fusion of East and West not only within the cuisine but the interior as well. The details are incredible, the interior is so beautiful even the roof.
Thank you chef Weng, the food was amazing.
If you ever go to Penang, go check it out. ❃

I absolutely love these tiles!!
Peranakan tiles, they are beautiful reminders of George Town heritage.
A fusion of east & west, from late 19th and early 20th century. Chinese traders who settled in the straits incorporated element of European architecture into their own style. These Peranakan homes architectural style is called 'Straits Eclectic'. Straits Eclectic architectural style can be seen all over shophouses in George Town, Penang especially in Muntri Street. (we stayed here) These tiles were regarded as a symbol of wealth and affluence(wall tiles decorated the front of houses, these would be images, such as flowers and relief tiles). Walk around George Town and you will find beautifully decorated houses and the geometric pattern floor tiles in the Goh Kha Ki or five foot ways.
❃
Ps. When comfort is of the atmost importance, you need reliability. I just want to shout out to @edenleatherco for the most comfortable sandals I have ever owned. Two days we walked the streets of Penang in search of street art and tiled floors and my feet where happy. Happy feet!!

The beautiful Pinang Peranakan Mansion, is a must for anyone travelling to Penang.
It gives you insight to the life of the Peranakans (Baba and Nyonya from about a century ago)
The Mansion is filled with artifacts, showing their opulent lifestyle, customs and traditions. ✥

Introducing traditional handmade-with-love Ama Potato Chips, a heritage of over 50 years from Penang inspired by a Grandmother and Grandson duo. Growing up with the grandson, I witnessed the bond and love they share with each other, and it's beautiful beyond words.
