    Eating Myself Stupid in Penang!

    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!

    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 !!??
