Penang Cultural & Heritage Celebration (1)

I asked Cerok Tokun to make way for Penang Cultural & Heritage Celebration for this and another two coming posts. The later was organized in conjunction with Chinese New Year, 2013.

Streets around the George Town heritage enclave which were dazzlingly beautiful attracted both the local and foreign visitors and photographers.

You might not be one of them this time, it will never be too late for the next year.
