Monday Moodboard: Wanderlusting Over Penang


It's been 9 months since I visited the Malaysian state of Penang, and I'm already feeling the need to go back.

During the weekend, while cleaning out my drawers, I found some stuff from my trip to Malaysia with two officemates turned travel buddies — brochures, bus tickets, train tickets, boarding passes, museum stubs. It has been 9 months and it was a trip of many firsts (which I should remember to tell you guys about in another story!), so seeing all these bits and pieces flooded me with many good memories.

So, after pasting the tickets on my travel journal’s pages, I browsed through my albums of film photos from the trip. I especially miss the sights and tastes of Penang, Malaysia’s food capital and a delightful mix of new and old. It didn’t help my wanderlust for Penang (especially George Town, the state’s capital situated in Penang Island) when I found out about the George Town Festival, “a month-long celebration of art, music, theatre, dance, opera and film” held every year since 2010 to “commemorate George Town’s inscription on the UNESCO World Heritage listing on 7 July, 2008.” Too bad I couldn’t make it to this year’s festival.

I also wanted to take a look at what some of my fellow lomographers have photographed during their own visits, and these are some of my favorites:

It’s been 9 months too long and I can’t wait to go back.
