Glamourous times at Peranakan Mansion, Penang

I'm there to sight see, while couples are there taking wedding shots.

This is true vintage glamour at its finest. 

Back then there was no Ikea, no department stores. Minimalism was probably considered as a bad idea for decorating houses and even worse, if you were staying at a mansion. Everything had a flair for the dramatic and delicate craftsmanship. The technology used to make things back then may be low, but they produced beautiful furniture and accessories. 

Righto... About those accessories displayed in glass cases. Oh gosh how I wished I could take them back home with me! They are all sooooo beautiful. They don't really make jewelry like this anymore, do they?

Here's another set of pictures. Spot the bride in one of these pictures! ;) The day I went must be some auspicious day, since I saw three couples there. One was an Indian bride in a bright red cheongsam, which was quite unusual. But she looked gorgeous in it anyway. OK all of them looked nice. :) 

 Forever the dramatic lil kid. An imitation of Beethoven gone rock and roll.
