Entopia by Penang Butterfly Farm

Entopia

Entopia is the newly renovated, upgraded and expanded version of the Penang Butterfly Farm. After a year of major rework and upgrade, Entopia opened its door during the middle of this year. It maintains its free roaming butterflies concept while at the same time, includes other types of bugs and even reptiles, as well as establishing several new attraction and educational zones.

Penang Street Art (“Looking Up” by Jarus)

A beautiful art mural created by street artist Emmanuel Jarus. This artwork titled “Looking Up” depicts a woman (Caryn Koh) looking up from presumably her mobile phone which is being held on her palm. This mural, apparently the largest one in the country, is easily visible if one passes by 1st Avenue shopping mall along Magazine Road. It is painted on the wall of the shopping mall building in George Town.

Jarus is a Canadian mural artist who usually paints the people he meets during his travel.
