“Kah Lu Kong Hokkien” – Teach you to speak Hokkien,  a Chinese dialect widely spoken in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia & the Philippines  with the diaspora of Min descendants from mainly Fujian & Guangdong Province in China emigrating to Southeast Asia during the 19th century till around 1950.  It is also known as ‘Min Nan Yu’ which is spoken in Fujian Province, Eastern Guangdong, Hainan, Southern Zhejiang & Taiwan.

Stub it out!  “Only you can stop air pollution”.

There are countless steel-rod sculptures & plenty of street art in Penang that is waiting to be discovered. These are just a few that I stumbled across. Besides eating & shopping in Penang, one activity that you can do is to search for the Street art that is scattered all over George Town. Happy hunting!
