The Blue Mansion
A beautiful piece of Penang heritage located right at the heart of the World Heritage Site. I have seen many movies that feature this little Penang artifact of art before and always wondered what it would be liek to live in such a magnificient building.
I had my wish partially granted when a friend of mine happened to know the caretaker of the mansion. HE kidnly brought me for a tour around the building which was nice and very eye opening. The interior of the house was better than the exterior as many precious items like antiques and paintings were on display and all were still maintained in prime condition.
I would love to be able to spend the night at the mansion one day,listening to all the stories the caretaker has to share with me.
