Penang Delights (Part 3): The Peranakan Town

Have been crazily busy these past few weeks and the upcoming weeks. I'm sorry I haven't got a chance to reply to comments. I haven't even got time to blogwalk as I usually do! And thank God for scheduled posts! Sooooo, please be understanding with my lack of responses, and I'll get back to it once I have the chance to... well, to breath... properly... Haha!

Here are some pictures of me strolling around Georgetown, Penang. If you plan to visit to this place one day, I hope you'll get an idea of what you can do and see there. Also, that you can basically cover everything just by walking, if you wear comfy shoes or sneakers, of course. Enjoy!

Striped tank top and skinny gold belt: unbranded. Blue shirt and butterfly earrings: Bugis Junction, Singapore. Sunnies: Oakley. Clover necklace: Warna (MKG). Turquoise beaded necklace: DIY project. Skinny jeans: Forever21. Sneakers: Nike. Mint green purse: Les Catino.
Scarf tied to the purse: thrifted from Miami, USA.

Even just walking around, you'd stumble upon interesting buildings, like this Chinese temple here.
Government offices are located in these beautiful European-style buildings. The city is so quaint and lovely we met many couples who were taking their pre wed pictures around these places.

The Peranakan Mansion, which used to be home to a wealthy Chinese family, now open for public. Peranakan is a culture blend of overseas Chinese living in South East Asia who have adopted the local culture - and even some European influence, as well -  and mix it into their own Chinese culture. Not just the architecture and interior, but also the clothing, food, etc. We have Peranakan culture too in Indonesia. You might notice it in my batik posts where I wore the traditional Indonesian batik which has been infused with Chinese patterns or colors.
