I started using WordPress primarily as an avenue to share photos of Penang, a small but beautiful island off the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Despite having being born and bred here (and spending most of my life thus far), there is still always something that amazes me on every street or corner of this island, and in particularly the city of George Town. At the same time, by maintaining and writing on this site, it helps me to rediscover the rich heritage and history of the island, and therefore, is every bit a learning journey for me too. For instance, not many know that Cheong Fatt Tze mansion is one of the two such mansions outside China; Cannon Street is named so because of the cannons being fired during a riot back in the old days; or that Dr Sun Yat-sen had his first speech in Penang at the Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Centre, and so forth.

Hence, I hope this site will serve as an informative place to provide pictorial discovery of Penang.

I love drawing since I was small and I found that photography itself provides another expression of art. My photos are usually taken with my compact cameras and/or mobile phone camera and most of them are edited via Photoshop. I enjoy taking photos and then experimenting on them with Photoshop (or as most refer to it as photo manipulation).

Lastly, I hope you enjoy your stay here, however brief it may be, and feel free to provide any comment that you may have. πŸ™‚

If you are interested in using any of the photos on my websites or have any feedback, please feel free to contact me first at wcwk @ outlook.com.

  3. Hello! I am so glad to finally find you! I discovered a photo of yours ‘Stairway to Heaven’ on google images which is perfect for the work I do with people who are dying. Can you please let me know what the procedure is to purchase it, or buy the rights to use it. Thank you! I’ve never done this before, so not sure of protocol. Your photography is amazing, and I’d like to do what I can to promote it for you too.

  6. Hi there, this is probably an annoying request from a stranger but i’m from Australia and I’m heading to Penang in Feb next year. Photographically my main interests are of abandoned buildings. Is there any way you could help me out on some cool locations? I’m on flicker and if you go two my second page that’s where my abando photos start. https://www.flickr.com/photos/apocalypseyana you can contact me on flickr or at yanagrant@gmail.com
