A Quick Penang Update

Posted on November 20, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Hello Folks!

We both know its been a while since we updated the blog; we've changed country twice and continent once since we last sent an update, and this evening we head for another new city in Canberra. What can we say? Travelling is fun, and we haven't had a huge amount of internet time of late. However, Rachel is working up a post about Singapore, but while she's doing that, I thought I'd just send two quick additions to our Penang experience.

The first was the most unexpected. The State Art Gallery was holding a special retrospective exhibition on Penang artist Tay Mo-Leong, who started painting watercolours and moved into batik as he got older. There was a great variety of work up, and all of it was inspiring. Although the gallery doesn't have a great website, Mo-Leong does have his own (very 90s styled), where you can click around and get an idea of his work.

The second was the journey to Penang island from the mainland. We did this by ferry rather than by the uber-long bridge, and I thought the family would appreciate this shot of the ferry seats:

Like Hong Kong, or do my eyes deceive me?

That's it! To add more colour, here's a shot of a beautiful mosque that occupied the end of the road we were staying on. 

Until next time..

James
