George Town – Penang Island

An Impromptu long weekend plan took us and a couple of friends from work to George Town,  Penang island. The historical town made us miss our very own Pondicherrry and Goa. The long walks in the old town and passing by the heritage buildings leaves one wondering the splendour of the city during the good old British Raj :). While we couldn’t cover all of the attractions in Penang, we barely managed to scrap the surface of this beautiful island city. With each part of the island guaranteeing a unique experience, i am sure we will be having our tryst with Pulau Pinang very soon before we head back home from KL.

Dholu Kunita @ Janapada Loka

Almost right from my childhood days, a travel on the Bangalore-Mysore highway would always  be incomplete without a stopover at Kamat Lokaruchi and Janapada Loka.  The food is yummy and it is probably one of the best veggie joints on the highway. This one time, we decided to take a walk inside the Janapada Loka to check the place out. The place is a treat for anybody with a keen interest and love for folk  art, heritage, crafts and music. During this one visit, there was a training camp on folk music and we were lucky to catch a quick glimpse of the folks in action practicing the famous Dholu Kunitha.
