Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion

Coming out from Pinang Peranakan Mansion, we headed to another beautiful mansion. This one's blue in color =) Based on the direction from the map we've got, the 3 of us walked under the scorching hot sun.

We found Love Lane! <3 I wonder why is this small road called Love Lane. Hotspot for couples? Hehe

Here we are! This is the Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion. The elegant blue color mansion located at Leith Street. This beautiful mansion belongs to a very rich businessman named Cheong Fatt Tze. He built this mansion according to all the advice he got from Feng Shui guru. The whole mansion was built to make sure the Qi is at the centre and that it will stay there for good. But too bad, after years of passing on to his grandchildrens and grandchildrens, the maintenance of the mansion was too heavy and they had to sell it off. Luckily one man is kind enough to buy it and maintain the whole mansion the way it was first built.

But we were so disappointed! Why? Cos we were late for the tour and the security guard told us that we're not allowed to enter on our own. This is such crap lah. Can't they just open it like the Pinang Peranakan Mansion? Isn't it better that way?

See that? That's the last tour of the day. Timed at 3.30pm. And we weren't even allowed to join them halfway =.=

The front garden. We are only allowed to stand at the gate and snap photos. I heard photos are not allowed to be taken inside the mansion.

I'll be back! No wait. We'll be back! =D
