I’m not one to share a lot of articles on this blog, but this one was too good to pass up because it speaks about where I have lived for the past nine years – the Pearl of the Orient – Penang!
2014 was certainly a banner year for Penang as the articles will highlight. It won 8 different prestigious awards or accolades that should make anyone sit up and take notice. I shall highlight two of them here. First, the food. Yes, it is that good. The variety, the flavors, the uniqueness. Wow! Nyonya – Chinese Malay fusion is stunningly delicious. The street food. Noodles. Curry. The Indian. The Thai. The Malay. I could eat a different food every night and be in flavor heaven. And the price is right! A plate of the famous char koay teoh noodles will cost you about 4 Malaysian Ringgit (approximately $1.20 US)
Secondly, I will mention #6 on the list – The Hard Rock Hotel. It’s kind of like my second home in Penang. I spend a lot of time there on the lounge chairs typing away on my laptop. Great place to write. And when I get hot, I jump in the awesome pool!
Penang is one awesome place. I hope you have a chance to visit some day.
