Malaysia and Cambodia

Hello,

This is about my upcoming trip to Malaysia and Cambodia. The first part is pre-trip - information about flights, itineraries, accommodation and all the things that you need to do to plan an overseas holiday. This is my first trip to Asia and I hope it may help others. Comments are very welcome and anyone who has travelled to Malaysia and/or Cambodia, please feel free to comment and offer any advice or tips that you think would be helpful. As of today ( 28th February) , in exactly 11 days (minus 30 minutes) I will be in Kuala Lumpur.
Cheers.

I had the most amazing time and hope you enjoy reading about my trip. Each post is numbered and I'm doing them in order from start to finish - a little like a diary.

86. Khoo Kongsi and ...a Film Crew

Our next stop was at Khoo Kongsi.

History

The Khoo Kongsi is a clan association of the Leong San Tong (Dragon Mountain Hall) clan, whose ancestors came from Sin Kang clan village in Hokkien province. The Khoos were among the wealthy Straits Chinese traders of 17th century Malacca and early Penang. In the 19th century, the clan complex resembled a miniature clan village, with its own self-government as well as educational, financial, welfare and social organisations. The clan temple was built in 1906 when the Khoo clan was at the height of wealth and eminence in Penang society.

Khoo Kongsi is one of the famous tourist attractions of Penang. This beautiful place was built in 1906 by China’s leading craftsmen. Consisting of two buildings on opposite sides, one is an ancestral temple and the other serves as a venue for plays and operas.
It is at 18 Cannon Street in Georgetown.

And a film crew

In the lane just next to Khoo Kongsi, there was a film being made. There was a camerman filming and I found this very interesting. I didn't manage to find out who or what, but it was certainly entertaining. I only wish now that I had thought to ask one of the film crew who they were, what they were filming and who the actresses were.

This seems to be an important scene - note the placement of the trishaws, the people standing around and the washing on the lines up above.
