Ah Quee Street (Lebuh Ah Quee), is an old street in George Town which is named after Kapitan China Chung Keng Kwee. An influential figure during his time, Kapitan Chung Keng Kwee (also known as ‘Ah Kwee’, hence the street name) presented this street to the local municipality after having demolished his shophouses to make way for the road.

A few murals can be found on the ancient walls of the street such as the popular one by Ernest Zachaveric as shown below;

Penang Ta Kam Hong (or translated as Penang Goldsmith Association) is the oldest Chinese goldsmith association in Malaysia which was founded in the 1800s at Muntri Street, George Town. Most of its goldsmith members are of Cantonese descent and they generally worship Wu Ching, the patron deity of goldsmiths within the association’s guild temple.

The large art mural of the ‘Girl in Blue’ drawn by Ernest Zacharevic can be found on the side wall of a neighboring house of the association.

The Penang locals’ fascination with the minions from the animated movie ‘Despicable Me’ has resulted in this traffic bollard being painted with the two of them by international artist Ernest Zacharevic, whose other wall murals in the island have gained worldwide fame. This art work can be found at Soo Hong Lane, the narrowest lane in George Town.
