OK. Its 1.15 am in the morning and I still can't sleep so might as well do something I had wanted to do for a while ie promote tourism to the beautiful island of Penang.

Since the end of the year is fast approaching, and before you finalize your family holiay plans, let me show you what Penang has to offer through a video done by, yes, a non-Penangite and a non-Chinese summore!

Its a 5-part video, so sit back and enjoy them and hope to see you guys in Penang come the year-end school holidays! :D

This is the night food scene at a place along MacAlister Road called New Lane. Lorong Baru is the name only known to Koh Tsu Koon aka Bo Hood. Penangites know the place as NEW LANE!

Very interesting video but there are many places where locations are not mention.

In video pt3, they show the Nyonya Museum where the acclaimed TV series 'Little Nyonya' was shot. Do make it a 'must stop' place on your visit here.

In Pulau Tikus, the best. The Mee Jawa and Mee Rebus are good at the Civil Service Club. Don't worry, just plan your trip up here.

Since you are into promoting Pg and all things nice about Pg, just wonder if you know where to get Apom Bokwa in KL. Any idea? Cant seem to find any here at all !!??

It is in video5. The place is at the corner of Burma Rd and Bangkok Lane. Been frequenting that famous Mee Goreng since 1986 but they start even before I was born! The boss, with the apron, is one of the 2 brother that started the business.
If you happen to be there on Tue, Thur or Sat morning, do watch out for a Chinese pork satay push cart. There are only 3 such stall selling the traditional Chinese pork or pork intestine satay with potato sauce.

In Penang, there are 2 version - the dark black gravy with fat noodles & lots of crispy fat or the yellow noodles with bee hoon Penang style?
