Photo Diary Flashback: Touring Georgetown! (Part 1)

This visit was held during the Heritage Walk, which was actually part of my assignment for Social Studies last year. Unfortunately I did not have time to update it and I have barely time for refreshing my memories to recreate the entire scene in words. Hence, here is a picture diary specially by me. I hope you will like it and enjoy the story behind the pictures.

A picture speaks a thousand words. (I have a good excuse for laziness and business, huh? Tee hee! ^^ )

Welcome to Chew Jetty, a historical settlement of the Khoo clan in the Pearl of Orient, PENANG!

The jetty reflected the Chinese lifestyle strongly.

Look at the sampans and the houses on stilts! Obviously, this is a fishing settlement. 
Town kids should see this and appreciate such beauty in simplicity away from the hustle and bustle of the city!

Did I mention that Chew Jetty was used for the filming of the famous Malaysian Chinese comedy-romance, "Ice Kacang Puppy Love" (初恋红豆冰) too?

Don't forget to pray for a safe journey for everyone. :)
