My CNY 2007 Adventures (Part 1/3)

This is the first part of my adventures during Chinese New Year (CNY). I don't really visited my relatives and friends to get 'Ang Pao'. Most of the time I brought my friends adventure around in Penang Island and Mainland.

My hometown (Butterworth) changed alot with the new highway - BORR (Butterworth Outer Ring Road). Besides that, I hardly can see wooden houses anymore. The places I used to hangout also changed. I really missed those days environment, now I felt like a stranger in my home ground :(

On my CNY holiday, I've been visited many places and snap lots of photos...

Prai Mega Mall's decoration

This decoration really impressed me, I've been Queen's Bay Mall, but the decoration still can't beat the above picture.

Now I wanna show you a hidden treasure in my hometown, The "Nine Emperors" Temple. This temple located at Jalan Raja Uda, the workmanship of this temple really impressive! They really hired the workers from China to do the carving on the building.

Nine Emperors Temple

This temple still extended and now they are building the main entrance and fencing with dragon statue. They also wanted to turn this temple as a tourist spot.



You can see how fine is the workmanship, I really felt that I was back to thousand years back to taste the real traditional buildings.

Inside the temple you can see many more excellent carving works...

This is not painting, it's a 3D carving works.

Excellent Carving
