I’ve been to Penang many times but only fell in love with it earlier this year. Every corner of the old town is not only beautiful in a peculiar way but is rich is history. I found a shop with handmade rattan furniture painstakingly moulded and weaved by an old uncle, hipster cafe serving greek yoghurt, a fine dining restaurant with a beatiful garden, an obscure Nyonya kuih factory-restaurant and camera museum. Penang surprises me everytime!
This time, I came to attend a beautiful wedding – kind couple, relaxing ambience, hang out with close friends, bump into old friends, amazing Penang feast (especially a pre-wedding buffer with a big pot of assam laksa soup and freshly fried lobak!) and good conversations with new friends.
Here’s my Penang in pictures:
- buy rattan furniture
- visit a local carpenter
- try each and every Nyonya Kuih & asam laksa
- visit nutmeg plantation
