Muntri Mews, Penang: A Charm of Its Own

Truth be told, I’ve never been the Penang’s biggest advocate. Nor have I been a fan either. In fact, given a few years ago, I have much preferred Malacca – the other city in the country that has been formerly inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. But some thing inside of me has changed…

For years, I had a happy pre-vacation ritual. I’d head to my regular Tower Records and lose myself in aisles of CDs and DVDs.
