Pinang Peranakan Mansion
Pinang Peranakan Mansion, Penang
In Penang the mansion houses are very much worth a visit. Pinang Peranakan Mansion is a lot of fun, you will find the Malaysian Chinese or Baba Nyonya culture reflected in the way the house is decorated. Also fun to see is the mixage of vintage 1950s German tv sets (one wonders what was being broadcast in Malaysia in 1950!) and radios and gramophones. The ladies of the house made a lot of silver wire sculptures of trees which are festooned with little Chinese fairies..In this photo you are seeing one view of the drawing room, as seen from the central courtyard, natural light is coming from the skylight or atrium.
