This 20 meter art mural at Alliance Française de Penang was created by local Malaysian artist Elan Hasyim and it was painted in a way to portray the relation between the two cities, Paris and Penang.

It can be found on the wall of the building of The Alliance Française de Penang (a French learning center), which is located right at the corner of Jalan Phuah Hin Leong, George Town:

George Town Street View: Light Street

Named after Penang island’s colonial founder, Captain Francis Light, Light Street (Lebuh Light) was reportedly the first main street to be laid out and built in George Town. The area surrounding this road was once a thick jungle before it was cleared out, way before the Fort Cornwallis even came into existence. Captain Francis Light had his first house built along this street.

Along Light Street, there are several important government buildings that still exist till today, including the State Assembly Building, the Supreme Court Complex and the National Bank building.


The Supreme Court Complex and the National Bank building can be seen here.

Penang Food: Chee Cheong Fun

foodccf
Unlike the Chee Cheong Fun style in Kuala Lumpur or Hong Kong, Penang’s Chee Cheong Fun is special in its won way where the steamed rice rolls are eaten with its secret recipe sauce. The sauce is what sets it different in Penang. Each hawker stall that sells Chee Cheong Fun will claim that their stall has the tastiest sauce. The above picture was from the stall located at the Genting Coffeeshop, in Greenlane, Penang. This particular stall’s sauce is made using peanut butter paste as one of its ingredients.

Although Chee Cheong Fun is usually available at any time, it is commonly taken during breakfast or brunch.
