Penang's Untold Story

(If no picture, click Bo Lang Chai (Forgotten) from Pusat KOMAS on Vimeo.)

I used to live within walking distance from the Penang Clan Jetties along Weld Quay.  The story above is very interesting.  Don't worry if you can't understand Hokkien.  Even many Chinese Penangites do not fully understand Hokkien.  This video takes 34 minutes.  But if you are interested in Penang history, please take your time to watch it.   It's an ingenious approach to bring forth a message.

It's in the form of a Chinese puppet show !
