Penang by Day

Penang is terribly hot during the daytime. I sat in the backseat of my car while my husband drove down the various streets, roads and lanes of George Town, and I took photos of buildings. Sometimes the car swerved and I would fall and roll in the backseat and the photos didn't turn out good. But this is my best effort to obtain some photos and learn what the buildings are about.

Naina Mohamed & Sons (Pg) Sdn Bhd

Naina Mohamed & Sons (Pg) Sdn Bhd shifted from its former location at the Logan Heritage building to Bishop Street. Dr KM Ariff had worked at Naina Mohamed & Sons when it was at Logan Heritage building. I do not know whether Dr KM Ariff also moved when Naina Mohamed & Sons moved to Bishop Street.
