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.
