[By Kiah Kiean in Penang, Malaysia] It has been a tradition to sketch Goddess of Mercy Temple during Chinese New Year and i did that with fellow Urban Sketchers Penang yesterday (the 5th day of new year). The temple is decorated with many red lanterns. Lots of Penangites and tourists went there for worship. Many people also waiting in the front courtyard for free food and "Ang Pao" (red packet with money inside).
