We decided that we had to do some touristy things so we headed to Penang Peranakan Mansion. Word’s that The Little Nyonya filmed part of the show there. But then again, don’t they seemed to have film it at every other Peranakan location?

The grand hall – you can pick up a free goreng pisang (fried banana fritters)
The roof window that provided the light for the courtyard

One of the sitting rooms
I think it was something yucky here
The furniture was perfect for our Vivi inspired photoshoots. Wrong clothes choice though

Antique television spied
Still in art mode – Shu looks so effortless heck care
I reckon this is one of the rooms of the teenage Nyonya
Just nice for the three of us – no shoes are allowed on the upper floors. I was kind of afraid someone will steal my new Hush Puppies.
Last shot of the mansion
In all honesty, don’t think I really picked up much facts about Nyonya and Babas beacuse we didn’t have a tour guide to explain the artefacts. I reckon you will gleam some interesting nuggets if you did the tour. This mansion was grander than the one I toured in Malacca, however, I think the Malacca museum retained more authentic flavour.
