Penang Pix: wedding, food, market

Comments (2) Explore, Travel & Stay, Malaysia, Penang, Travel

A couple of months back, Jun and i went to Penang for his cousin’s wedding.

I love going back there with him cos we had our second getaway date there,
his family have a really comfortable apartment in front of the beach,
we both get so excited by the food there,
it feels great for me to spend more time on the island where i was born (tho i moved away by primary school),
and just the general VIBE of Penang. Loves it.

I instagrammed how we climbed a tree after the morning wedding ceremony, and people started congratulating me randomly throughout the following weeks / asking me how my wedding was -_-

In the hot afternoon, we quenched our thirst with fresh coconut skilfully chopped on the spot by a multi-linguil Indian guy who natters off in English, Tamil and Hokkien to customers.

Jun’s parents took us to the family’s favourite seafood restaurant right on the beach, where the freshly-caught wares arrive straight from the sea. All the dishes are prepared simply (as how best to taste seafood!) and delicious. Jun’s mum explicitly said, “You can’t blog about this,” so… here are pictures only :p

Miso is a sweet little girl who’s shy and playful when she gets used to you.

Before leaving Penang, we went to Foong Wei Heong for lunch:
