Visit to Pinang Peranakan Museum and Kek Lok Si
Penang is a popular tourist destination. But when someone comes to visit, you might not know where to bring them to. I guess the best thing is to bring them to the hawker centres. After all , the best thing about Penang is the hawker food. It has a been a long time since I last went to Kek Lok Si so we thought it would be nice to visit again. We were disappointed with what we saw. Other than the ongoing construction of the Pavillion of the Goddess of Mercy, many of the other places were in a deplorable state. The tortoise pool is a disgrace.
On an earlier trip we went to Khoo Kongsi and some heritage sites. But this time we tried the Pinang Peranakan Museum. We were pleasantly surprised with the place. Maybe it's because of the TV series Little Nonya and Iron Lady, it made the visit interesting. I don't mind paying the rm10 entrance because the owners did spend a lot to collect all those exhibits and maintained the place.
The place is also popular among bridal couples for thier photo shoots. I managed to catch a few shots. I don't think they know their lovely shots are in this blog. Anyway my congratulations and best wishes to them. May they have a wonderful life together.
