Peranakan Mansion, Penang 4 December 09

Friday afternoon.
We tagged along dada's business trip to Penang for a night and visited Peranakan Mansion, @Church St. The mansion is simply stunning, consists of over 1000 pieces of antiques and collectibles. En likes peranakan history - she likes the wash basin(without faucet & pipes) the most. She is so nuts about the idea and practiced it in real life ( & made the floor wet!)  :)  Hui is curious about everything and touched all the things that she could. :D

Mom & Hui @visitor room for women.
Hui was holding "cherki" cards, peranakan card game.
Peranakan men have meeting in another room, while women wait in this room.

Main entrance for visitors. Family enters through side entrance.

En looked into the old camera!

At night, we have dinner with uncle Teng, aunty Kian, Dwayne & Ashley. Uncle Teng brought us to Foong Wei Heong Restaurant at Jalan Sri Bahari. The chinese food is yummy.. and most of all, we have a great companion. It was a pleasant night for everyone! :)
