Some more sketches from Penang here. The sketches above were once again done while having breakfast (coffee, toast and jam) outside our Guesthouse. I was taking note of some of the interesting architectural features of the typical rows of houses in Penang. After breakfast we walked from our guesthouse over to the bay area.
Above is the former Penang City Hall, which I think is still being used for some government functions. This was right next to Fort Cornwallis and a big food court where we had lunch. Notice how most of my sketching gets done while we eat?
These sketches were done in the food court, where we had some excellent “nasi ayam” (chicken rice) and chicken noodles. The man operating the nasi ayam stall was very kind and very pleased that we liked his food. After lunch we crossed the street to have dessert at The Sire museum and restaurant. It’s a little pricey especially compared to street food, but the tiramisu and coffee that we had was excellent.
