I just got back from Penang!
While I was there, I spotted this amazing sight while travelling around Penang Island:
Did you see that?
I had to check out the building.
Here’s a closer look!
Oh my goodness! I was euphoric! It’s a KFC eatery housed in a colonial mansion!
It’s Colonel Sander’s colonial mansion!!! AHHHH!!!!
I had to go in. After all, I have a huge love for fried chicken, and more specifically, for Malaysian KFC (because it tastes so much better in Malaysia than in Singapore!) (See Crossing the Causeway for a Pilgrimage)
Beside the mansion is the Colonel’s playground:
What amazed me is how well preserved the interior is!
I initially expected a very modern interior of the eatery, but when I entered, I saw this instead:
They actually preserved the original Neo-classical flourishings within the building! So nice! They even preserved the lighting from that period.
And of course, what is KFC without Colonel Sanders standing majestically by the window?
This is sooooo cool! I wish Singapore had something like this too!
