Penang Peranakan House (Part 1)

Penang Peranakan House located in the middle of the heritage trail in Georgetown. Entrance fee is MYR10 per adult, quite worth it if you like old stuffs and history. 
the interior is extravagant...as the entire house is full of gold carvings...
but of course not on real golds
there are carvings on the photo frame, mirror frame, furnitures, walls, doors, windows frame...almost everywhere!
it must took long to finish up the carvings in the entire house!
somewhere in one of the rooms, there was this old lady dressed in "nyonya kebaya" outfit explaining to some visitors about traditional game that the rich peranakan use to play during their free time.
some decorative on the table
here is the upper floor
and this is the side entrance
some narrow lane leading to the backyard which houses the ancestor praying hall
well, this house is so cultural-rich that almost every corner of it's construction has some symbolic meaning or 'feng-shui' implied.
