Gallerist Lim Wei-Ling and her art gallery, Wei Ling Gallery, have become synonymous with celebrating some of the finest local and international contemporary art in the Malaysian art space. Lim also champions the preservation of Malaysia’s heritage buildings through her role as president of Badan Warisan Malaysia. Both her passions coalesce in the most charming way in the holiday home she shares with her husband Yohan Rajan in the heart of Penang’s UNESCO Heritage Zone.
The couple celebrated their 20th anniversary in 2018 by purchasing a holiday home as a present to each other. Penang made perfect sense as they both had fond memories of the island. Lim had spent almost every school holiday here as both sets of grandparents lived here (her father is renowned architect Jimmy Lim who grew up in Penang) while Rajan studied here.
