Old buildings


This house caught my attention the other day when we passed by one of the tiny streets in Penang. Every piece of the wall and floor tiles look so beautiful. Unfortunately, not many owners of such heritage buildings know how to appreciate the uniqueness. Many have demolised them for development.


I wish the State Governent or Municipal Council will draw up some guidelines for the preservation of such buildings. Otherwise, we end up with multi-coloured buildings. The photo above is one of the better ones. There are some with about 5 unit of buildings which come in purple, green, orange, siren blue, pink, red colour! Horrible!

I had been to Italy and found Florence breathtaking because it seems like they have a magical air there. Time seems to stood still. Bad plumbing and all.
