Lanterns !!

This picture was taken few nights ago when I went out for dinner together with my hubby. Passed by Kimberley Street (one of the so called "Chinatown area" in Penang) and we stopped for a while to take this shot. The street was beautifully lightened up with red lanterns. The picture appeared a bit blur cos I took it with my compact digicam; No image stabilizer :)

Yup famous Gurney Drive.. is it still there? Nice photo. It don't look blurred. And it is nice to see photo after rain.. is it after rain?

Chen said...

photocrazy,
Yeah, it rained earlier on.. Certain area on the road is still wet :)

Kimberley Street is in town area, not in Gurney Drive. The famous Gurney Drive is still around but the hawker stalls in Gurney Drive has been relocated temporarily to Tanjung Tokong..

Wow, I think that's a very beautiful picture of a very pretty place.

On top of that, as you've said, there's good food to be had there. Sounds good to me!

Furkids,
Thanks...
Hahhaa.. Good food is available in most places in Penang ;)
Penang is also known as "Pearl of the Orient"..
I guess this is the second Pearl besides HK :)
