heritage shophouses

Abandonedthe fading goldThere are so many of them in Georgetown, Penang. Some are under re-construction or preservation, but quite a number of them have been abandoned or in ruins. I loved the colours, the wood carvings, the old rusty locks and the adorable vintage mozaic tiles. If only the municipal council can do something about those stinky drains and canals…


Brown sugar cookiesI haven’t seen these biscuits or tasted them for aeons. They are not too sweet, with a distinctive molasses flavour, and a soft crumbly crust. Perfect with a good cup of chinese tea in the afternoon while chatting with my mum! And they can be quite addictive too. I should have bought more when I had the chance.
