    Penang beggars and musicians at Komtar

    Okay I don't really believe this guy was taking time off being the CEO of some big company, yep, I reckon he is one of the rough sleepers who hang out on the lovely floors of the Oriental Hotel, but hell at least he was trying to make some dosh, the other beggars were all on the pedestrian overpass that leads to the Komtar building, he was in the like grounds of the Komtar, yeah I gave him some money

    How old are these guys? Do they age at the same pace as Asian women?

    These 3 pictures I took at the Komtar building, this first guy had no legs, no idea if he dragged himself there or if somebody carried him there.



    This guy was passed out on the sidewalk.



    One of the gold shop security guards with his pump action remington shotgun, wonder what he does on his days off for fun.

    When I saw the subject line of this one, I immediately thought of the cemeteries there. Saw quite a few tombstones.

    I knew an old boy in Kuala Selangor ( he was about 60) and he had lived/ slept in his pedal rickshaw for over 40 years !! Never had a permanent home and was perfectly happy ! - He was our company messenger/gofor and a lovely chap !!

    The seedy underbelly of Penang still survives, albeit much lower key these days. It used to be a major drug supermarket and transhipment place, infamous. Complete with skagged out western hippies, and hard core, long term local druggies. Allegedly several of these rickshaw wallah's and street sleepers still are junkies.

    Thing about Penang, there's all these homeless people scanking around the joint but I always feel safe.

    Just don't hang around back streets at 2.00 Am could be a different story.

    We went out to find a dim sum place, before dawn, and walked along Chulia. About the only streetlife about was ladybot hookers.

    Those pics sort of remind me of those dudes sleeping on the street in Tijuana.
