If you’re wondering what else you could do in Penang after indulging yourself with the food and walking the streets of George Town discovering street arts, exploring the Unesco cultural and heritage sites with wonderful architectures from eighteenth to nineteenth century maritime seafaring era…,
I have heard about this place a couple of years back. But, it never occur to me as a place that I would be interested to visit or take my guests, especially when visitors are making a comparison to the “tree of life” in the movie, Avatar.

Our lovely guests, husband and wife team from Taipei, Taiwan enjoying a great time with their host, Victor Khoo. They started their day with Victor picking them up at 8:45 am from their hotel – Muntri Mew – in George Town. From there, they made their way to his local wet market in Tanjung Bungah, which took 25 minutes to drive. Along the way, Victor explained his plan for the day and discussed the differences between each dishes to cook.
Experience the other side of Penang local life away from the city. Imagine surrounded by lush green sceneries and “kampung” lifestyle with the hills on one side and the ocean on the other side. This is the side of Penang that most tourists do not know and have not experience, which is interesting and different from its famed street food, street arts and Unesco sites of Penang.
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.
