Day 7
Penang
Penang’s UNESCO World Heritage Site in Georgetown is not simply the colonial era structures that make up the area. It is also the confluence of people that go about their daily life in this town. Tucked in among the crowds are ageing tradesmen practicing their craft, just as it’s been done for generations. There is something precious and endearing about handmade products that machines can never replace, the little imperfections that make it unique. This painstaking process of production elevates handmade products into a dying form of art. Visit a wet market to meet a local legend who has been making hand-made popiah (spring roll) skin for decades and be amazed by his skills as he paces back and forth in a rhythmic motion between two hotplates with a wheat-flour dough "glove" on his right hand. He whips the elastic dough ball like a yo-yo, slams it down on a hotplate and yanks it off, leaving a very thin pancake. Once the thin layer is cooked, his helper will scrape off the popiah skin. From the wet market, hop on to your vehicle to your next stop. Embark on a walking tour to see age-old artisans laboring at their craft, offering rare glimpses into the trades that have endured the test of time. Visit the shops of the artisan making ‘songkok’ (Muslim headgear), joss sticks maker who specializes in joss sticks for special religious festivals, such as the three-foot high variety that burn for four days and those decorated with specially carved dragon, Indian flower garland maker who make pretty garlands as offering to Gods, the Nyonya beaded shoes maker painstakingly making intricate Nyonya beaded shoes, the signboard engraver who make his mark on wooden signboards while the Indian goldsmith dazzles with his skills and creativity.  Overnight in Penang.
