Cooking class 24 December 2018

Cooking class with our Czech Republic guests

Cooking class with our guests from Czech Republic

We had a wonderful time hosting our guests – Radka and Ondre – from Czech Republic on Christmas Eve.

It was a special occasion for them as they celebrate their Christmas far away from home and eating fish is a must in their tradition. So we included a red snapper dish cooked in a nyonya style. We played Christmas songs to create a festive ambiance for the occasion.

One of the most beautiful and peaceful Buddhist temple in Penang. Inside the vast temple ground is an oasis of carefully manicured gardens, water features and fish ponds with mythical statues, guilded gold stupas, an ancient well and Buddha images.

Dhammikarama is a Burmese temple and the oldest Buddhist temple in Penang. Built in 1803, the land was purchased by Nonya Betong for $390 spanish dollar from George Layton, and donated to the temple.

Chaiya Mangalaram Buddhist Temple

Chaiya Mangalaram is a Thai buddhist temple, built in 1845, on a land granted by the East India Company on behalf of Her Majesty Queen Victoria to the Siamese community. The land was presented by the then Governor of the Straits Settlement, William John Butterworth, to four female Siamese trustees. Since then, the land has remained in trust to this present day.
