It's been 3 years since my last trip back home, long over due trip indeed. The moment i saw my beloved island, i can hardly contain my excitement. All the glorious food i get to enjoy!!!!
view from Penang Hill
taking the historic Ferry
spending time with family
enjoy fresh seafood at home or restaurants because we ONLY eat fresh seafood!!!
fresh fish just out from fishing boats. Look how they bling and ooze freshness
a trip to little India in George Town for my favorite banana leaf.....yummmm
Penang is famous for Durian aka the king of fruit,
i only eat freshly collected from the orchard not the watery weeks old Thai Durian you get from the Asian market back in the States
a MUST have the this traditional Nyonya delicacy @ Cecil Street Market
tomato rice @ Sg Nyior
i never appreciated Pasar Malam(Night Market) until i moved out from Malaysia. It's a way of life and how the community come together to share their unique culinary culture
in Penang or Malaysia in general, we eat 6 meals a day
we do breakfast, a small snack break in between breakfast and lunch, then we have lunch, teatime, dinner and of course supper @ a mamak stall
sharing a Roti Tissue ( sweet flatbread)
or enjoy cooking your own food served on skewer with a variety of dipping sauce.
there is just so much to eat and enjoy so a basic 6 meals a day is a must
this almost 300 year old Taoist temple, The Goddess of Mercy temple
since i've been gone so long, i hit the whole touristy hot spots @ the Penang World Heritage site
been here a million time but to my surprise I've never taken any photos here before,
and now i do!!!
weeks long vacation of non stop eating, hangout with family and friends
one can never have too much banana leaf
play my favorite mahjong game
well i don't only eat, i take clases too (cooking class)......That is how we survive so long being away from home!!!
fresh salted fish @ Kuala Kurau
a trip back home will not be complete if i did not hunt for fresh ingredients at its source. Packed and sealed ready to travel back with me to the States
Penang will always have a special place in my heart! my home and my birth place
till i'm back again...stay cool Penang!! I LOVE PENANG!!!
next a 12 hours layover in HK....... oh boy!
