The Blue Mansion


So over the last weekend, we traveled to Penang island for my cousin's wedding at the Blue Mansion. The Circa 1880s mansion was built by the merchant Cheong Fatt Tze at the end of 19th century and has 38 rooms, 5 granite-paved courtyards, 7 staircases & 220 vernacular timber louvre windows. While it remains until now, a private-residence, the property operates as a 16 Room Bed & Breakfast-cum-museum as part of the adaptive reuse of an ongoing restoration project which has won awards from Unesco (source:wikipedia)

The dark and morbid weather complemented the deliciously eerie vibe and interior of the mansion and I was somehow unintentionally draped all in blue to match the old walls. Still, the blue on blue made for some rather interesting looking pictures I must say. And this old mansion housed a beautiful and memorable wedding party for us guests and most definitely the gorgeous bride and groom.

The photos from your happy visit to the restored Cheong Fatt Tze Blue Mansion for your cousin's wedding party are fabulous. I love your necklace and your blue dress is very pretty. I was amazed reading that you hadn't planned the colour match in advance. I like the photo of you and your hubby sitting by window having the stained glass half-circle top, and the huge hexagonal tiles of the floor. You both look great.What a amazing place to have a wedding party.
