Your hosts

I'm an architecture postgraduate student and also member of Urban Sketcher Penang Group. Born and raised in Penang, pursuing architecture in the only APEX university in Malaysia (University Science Malaysia). I've been active in Urban Sketcher Penang Group, exploring Penang thru sketches with a bunch of passionate and decent artists & architects. These two disciplines have created a direct links between my education as an architect while my interest & hobby as an artist, making me more easier to bring you to sketch at local Penang's favourite spot & explaining every story of architecture & history existed in every nook and cranny of Penang from a local professional's perspective. As an passionate artist, I wish to share my hobby with you. As an future architect, I'm happy to tell the story & history of architecture in Penang to you.
