Photographer's Note

A scene in old Georgetown...

The first time we visited the Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion, there was still a lot of work to be done. The architects and historians in charge showed us around and complained about the high-rises a bit further up the street and the many difficulties they faced doing restauration work in Penang.

These days this wonderful mansion, which because of its striking colour is commonly known as 'the blue mansion', houses a splendid hotel and has become one of the top attractions of Georgetown.

Note: The rikshaws did not belong to the mansion. In fact, they're not even Malaysian. They were brought in for the filming of the French movie Indochine.
