Established in 1884 by the British, Penang Botanic Gardens is perched at the foot of 112 metre surrounding hills of tropical rainforests. It was an old granite quarry site of 50 hectares with a natural waterfall cascading stream.

Cooking doesn’t have to be boring. It doesn’t have to be difficult either to make a healthy, delicious meal at home. And, when we are short of time after a long hard day doing whatever we had to do, the last thing on our mind is to think of what to cook at home. An easy way out is to eat out, have a takeaway or a quick microwave dinner.
Eating Thai food for a non-Thai person, who is not accustom to the culture and cuisine, is likely to think of a “pad thai”, “green curry” or “red curry”, the most commonly dishes available in a Thai eating place.
I am inspired to recreate a salad dish that I had at a Thai restaurant in Melbourne last year. I remember it was extremely delicious with the right balance of sweetness, saltiness and spiciness in the salad dressing. The mixture of green salad was fresh and crunchy, the mashed avocado was creamy and the grilled prawns were crunchy and yet moist on the inside.
This dish is simple to make and delicious to eat at home. It doesn’t require much preparation and takes less than an hour to cook.
