Penang’s Blue Mansion and some

This morning, we took a guided tour of the UNESCO World Heritage site, The Blue Mansion, an impressive house built by the wealthy and influential Cheong Fatt Tze in the late 19th century. The house was built on Feng Shui principles and is predominantly designed with Chinese features, with the exception of stained glass windows designed by the Scotsman, Rennie Mackintosh and tiles imported from Stoke-on-Trent in England.

And a few more photographs for luck including an iced pearl tea to keep one going in the heat.
