    My wife and I are on vacation in Penang all the way from NYC, USA. We’ve enjoyed daily self-guided walking tours to explore the flavor of the City. In and out of different neighborhoods we continuously gaze at buildings for Ernest’s murals after discovering our favorite on Armenian Street = the cheeky children riding on a bicycle. So far we have captured 4 and e-mailed the photos to our family and friends in the USA.
    Many have responding telling us not to come home until we have all of Ernest’s murals on film. Ernest, is a very talented artist.
