During the excellent tour you get of the mansion (and you need to go on a tour), you learn that Chung Fatt Tze was "the last mandarin, the first capitalist.' The house, and the man are fascinating.

You really shouldn't miss this....it's full of delights, and is a great learning experience and introduction to part of the history of Penang.

“The taste is completely different from a gummi bear, yet somehow familiar.”
