The island of Penang has been home to a lot of people whose ancestors came from India, China, Indonesia and other faraway places.

With their permanent residence in Penang stretching to decades, maybe even centuries, they set up businesses and along with that they also introduced wares that are common or interesting in their once homeland.

Above are two pieces of cloth that can easily be adorned on home walls. They are the images of the Buddha and the other a Hindu God. Very colourful, especially when the sun acts as a backdrop.

It was an interesting display of colours that brighten up an old passageway that is part of the old Penang.
