I'm back to posting Colonial Architecture, this time it's a Portugese House that was very well preserved and later on restored in Georgetown, Penang, Malaysia.
This house has been converted into a Malaysian-Portugese restaurant. The owner claims that the house has undergone more repairs inside than out. He said he made sure he preserved the original etchings on the window as well as the predominantly green paint. He also said that in repairing the gates, he made use of the same metal shapes even as he fabricated the rusted parts.
Penang was a Portugese colony long before the British came to rule. Straddled at Strait of Malacca, Penang used to be a famous "stop-over" for Pirates.
