a lucky one to be invited for such a beautiful review. you did a great review…

come to think of it… I miss the place – Sigi by The Sea.

Was this the garden-themed restaurant you mentioned during my earlier trips to Penang? Or a new place, judging that it hasn’t been named yet?

Either way, looks exciting! :)
