Owl Shop next to Main Entrance of Khoo Kongsi, Lebuh Cannon, Penang

The Owl Shop was recently open on 27th April by two enterprising young guys, Sim and Mike.  It is a charming place selling owls, owls and more owls in all shapes and sizes.

I asked them why owls?  The reply I got was they just love owls and they started collecting them from all over the world at a very young age.  Their passion for owls was evident when I talked to them.

The shop is open daily from 9.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. daily and visitors to Khoo Kongsi can get beautiful souvenirs to take home to their loved ones.

Chinese New Year Cultural & Heritage Celebration – outside Khoo Kongsi

As I was leaving Khoo Kongsi, I saw beautiful stalls from various hotels along Lebuh Cannon, just outside Khoo Kongsi.  Then I went over to Lim Kongsi to have a look around.  As I said I was early and the people involved were still setting up their stalls, but I did manage to get some nice photos to share with you.
