Canon Photography and Food Hunting Trip, Penang

Canon Singapore recently organized a Photography & Food Hunting Trip to Penang early this month.
Their first stop was the Temple of the Reclining Buddha and the spectacular Dharmikarama Burmese Temple in Lorong Burma, Pulau Tikus. The enthusiastic photographers had a great time snapping photos of the beautiful temple.

From Armenian Street, the group went to explore the Kek Lok Si Temple in Ayer Itam. The whole temple was beautifully lighted up with lanterns for the Chinese New Year and is an ideal place for photography.IMG_3329

Another Penang famous landmark in the itinerary was the Penang Hill which is around 800m above sea level. The group went up by the funicular railway.
The photographers were seen exchanging views while others were snapping away with their cameras trying to capture the picturesque view of the island and the beautiful flora and fauna of the hill. The view of George Town was a bit hazy on that day but the weather was relatively cool, making it a very enjoyable trip.

Another event was watching the "pie tee kong" celebration in the Penang Jetty. Its amazing, watching those decorations and effort put in to celebrate this occasion.
Besides sight seeing, the group also went around town trying out the hawker food which I have posted in my food blog at www.what2seeonline.com
