Pinang Peranakan Mansion

Depicting the typical home of a rich Baba of more than a century ago. the opulent lifestyle of these locally acculturated Chinese is recreated in the Pinang Peranakan Mansion to offer a glimpse of their many customs and traditions. More than just a Baba-Nyonya museum, this century-old stately mansion of eclectic design and architecture incorporates Chinese carved-wood panels with English floors tiles and Scottish iron-works. Built at the end of the 9th century by one of local history's famous personalities, the 'Hai Kee Chan' or Sea Remembrance Store had once served as the residence and office of Kapitan Cina Chung Keng Kwee.

Caol Ila

For lovers of Ardbeg, Laphroaig, and Lagavulin, this Islay distillery is less famous but very highly rated.

Taste sweet of malt and smokey. Last quite long but just not long enough.

Overall. 8 out of 10

Cheers and HUAAAATT ARRRRR !!!!
