George Town, Malaysia, is not only one of Asia’s best options for retirement living, but also a top choice worldwide. Though the city has grown a great deal over the years, it has managed to retain its British colonial flavor. At the same time, it has developed to be hugely culturally diverse. Wandering around the historic downtown, it’s easy to imagine yourself in another era and even another place. There are neighborhoods reminiscent of China, India, an old Malay village and everywhere you find architecture and infrastructure harkening back to England’s colonial heyday.
To celebrate the Festival of light, Countless lamps are illuminating And I am wishing you long lasting joy Endless happiness, Good health and prosperity Wishing you a Happy Deepavali!
