3 & 6 The roofs of Khoo Khongsi, the clan house of the Chinese immigrant clan with the surname 'Khoo'.  This is one of the most spectacular sites in Georgetown, but since it was under renovation, All I could shoot was the roof!

4 Details such as this abound in quiet and prosperous Georgetown.

5 Ornamentation at Yap Khongsi.

7 Looking out toward the street through the gate at a temple reveals a passing bicycle trishaw.  (The Malaysian rickshaw places the passengers in front of the driver, India behind, Myanmar next to with one seat facing forward, one back)
