Dr Sun Yat Sen, regarded as the modern father of China today, actually had a house at Penang! I never knew about this history until I Google up the heritage places in Penang. I was kinda amazed that he actually came to Penang in 1910 and lived here for 6 months with his family. It was in Penang that he gathered the Penang Conference to plan the Canton Uprising in Guangzhou China. He also started the Kwang Wah Jit Poh, one of the world's oldest Chinese newspaper. Great isn't he? =) Proud!
