I am in Kuala Lumpur again for a new experience, this time living an InterContinental life for a weekend at InterContinental Kuala Lumpur Hotel. The hotel which is within walking distance to Petronas Twin Tower, Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre and shopping places offers many conveniences to both business and leisure travellers.

Our first day started with checking in the hotel. We were greeted with warm attentiveness at the hotel lobby which was busy with the on-going 26th Asean Summit.

If you are in the Northam Beach Cafe in Penang, do check out the the nutty goodness of peanut candy and peanut sugar from Ang Seng Heong. Although both are made with peanuts, each has its own distinctive taste and texture.

The peanut candy, also known as kacang tumbuk or kong th’ng (in Hokkien) isn’t anything new. With scrumptious taste of peanuts and sugar, this crumbly snack has been around for ages and its recipe still remains a perennial favourite among customers.
