I Heart Old Floor Tiles

Old is Gold.  This saying is so true! Whenever I am in Ipoh, Penang or Melaka, I love to look at the old shophouses.   I always wonder who lived there and what happened in these homes.  I also love how these houses have been beautifully restored. Did you know that there are approximately 10,000 pre-war shophouses in Georgetown, Penang?   I wish that I had more time to explore Penang.  This is going to be my next agenda when we travel to Penang again.  During the recent trip, I have taken photos of the old floor tiles in Armenian Street, Lorong Selamat, Lebuh Muntri and Love Lane.  These old floor tiles evoke an old world charm. Here are some of them :-
