Old and New Buildings

We visited Penang, also known as the Pearl of the Orient. Well known for the food, it is also known for the buildings. The island has limited land. It is quite a feat. We saw quaint old buildings reminiscent to her colonial past.

But to utilize her land well, there are also new sky-scraping structures.

One can’t help but admire the merging of the two. The marrying of the wooden and cement structures somehow does well with the concrete steel buildings in this place.

My parents who used to frequent this island found surprises. I wonder how stringent their town planning is…!
