Recently, my little city in Georgetown, Penang island in Malaysia was granted a heritage site. To explain :
Georgetown has been recognised as a Unesco historical sites tonight.
The inscription of Georgetown as a World Heritage Site was announced by Unesco, or the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation, when the Paris-based World Heritage Council met in Quebec, Canada, yesterday.
There are a total of eight new cultural sites added to Unescoâ€™s World Heritage List, namely:
1 ) Melaka and George Town, historic cities of the Straits of Malacca (Malaysia)
2 ) Kuk Early Agricultural Site (Papua New Guinea)
3 ) Stari Grad Plain (Croatia)
4 ) Fortifications of Vauban (France)
5 ) Berlin Modernism Housing Estates (Germany)
6 ) Mantua and Sabbioneta (Italy)
7 ) San Marino Historic Centre and Mount Titano (San Marino)
8 ) The Wooden Churches of the Slovak part of Carpathian Mountain Area (Slovakia)
This is the Masjid Kapitan Keling. I have blogged about this in my previous post but am doing one more because I want to show off my 100% organic cotton bag from Foodbuzz. I think the background of the mosque is very Malaysian.
I have been carrying the bag around with some books and Bible, very much like a missionary worker. LOL. I love the bag. Thanks, Foodbuzz. If you are a food blogger with fantastic posts and beautiful photos, do check out my review on Foodbuzz.
I will make a post on the delicious nasi kandar I had next to the mosque in my next post.
