Approximately 24 percent of Malaysia’s population here is Chinese, which is the second most race in Malaysia. Since listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2008, Penang has gradually started to put great emphasis on the precious cultural values cen-
tered on people, as well as the cultures of different races. This thesis takes the obvious restoration of heritage buildings for the major record. At present, however, more and more individuals or groups are coming up to balance the improper distribution of the government resource planning, which has originally been Malaysian-culture-centered. With the more population of Chinese people in Penang, it is the issue how they strive for the Malaysia government’s concern in the situation that cultures impact each other and the resources are strived for by any applicants.
This thesis focuses on the area of the historical city: George Town, Penang, Malaysia: 1. to get into the cultural history workshop and actually participate in the restoration of ancient houses, so as to record the actual process, as well as to explain and present the current problems, restoring and maintaining conditions of the Chinese Historical sites in Penang; and 2. to interview the defending individuals and groups in the area of Penang, Malaysia, which is the major discussion of this thesis.
