Photographer's Note

Penang was once a hub in Asia for drugs, coming back from a trip in Borneo with a friend we wanted to know how evolved Penang from that time.
Sipping a beer in jalan Chulia we had the chance to meet an indian trishaw peddler who spoke with the utmost english accent, perfectly knew Conrad or Maugham novels. As we asked him what was the key to Penang, he invited us on a very singular trishaw trip across Penang lower ends.

We started the "tour" meeting a group of indian junkies, apparently very close friends of him. After a beer, there was a slight frenzy amongst the group who invited us to a shooting party (not talking about photo...), we politely refused and carried on, having a thought about which legal penalty we could get for this kind of amusement...

This is taken while the two folks are still on beer, though his eyes seems to look for something stronger.
This open air bar was really low end, very close to Penang assh*le, the proof is the Tiger beer poster girl who's ubiquitous to any cheap bar in Malaysia or the Philippines.
