Pearl of the Orient

 

Over the next few weeks as I get round to processing them I'll be putting up our shots of our recent trip to Penang.  Here are some snapped on our walk around some of the local tourist destinations.  You can see why Asia resurfaces as an inspiration time after time for designers.  The rich colours, the love of decoration, the intricacy, attention to detail and level of craftsmanship that greets the eye at every turn here is sure to leave a lasting impression on your imagination long after you've left.
