Penang #1

We had been on the road for about 5 hours, arriving in the afternoon in Georgetown, Penang. We were ecstatic to find out we'd be staying in really old but charming hotel. Turns out The Cathay Hotel is about a hundred years old and it is well kept and run by some elderly people, I should say. What I loved most about it was that it had character. Old mosaic tiled floors which you rarely find in modern homes these days were everywhere in this hotel. Sadly, I was pretty spooked that I forgot to snap pictures of the tiles in the bedroom and bathroom. There were no "visitors" that night, but one's imagination can go abit wild when you've been hearing ghost stories during the trip.
