Mailbox Monday: Penang

I haven't been buying books for a while after having succeeded in complying to my self-imposed book-buying ban. However, I have been thinking about the ones you see here ever since I laid eyes on them, especially the picture-rich Penang Through Gilded Doors by Julia de Bierre and photography by James Bain Smith. I was browsing it about two weeks ago with my friend at Popular, a bookshop located at Komtar, Penang. I finally bought it last Friday together with another one titled Streets of George Town, Penang by Khoo Su Nin.

My books

I've been going around Penang taking pictures of some of the beautiful and historic places. I'm fascinated by them and the streets of Penang and would like to understand more about the places I've been to and plan to go. I hope to share more pictures through my lens and stories with you in the future!
