Recently I got the pleasure of writing for the New Straits Times newspaper. It was a privilege to contribute my articles which will be featured in the Life & Times section covering mostly on food. It gives me the chance of introducing and promoting mainly food from Penang (with other places in time to come) as well as covering interviews with chefs and restaurateurs. From time to time I will contribute to the Travel & Living section as well.

What’s the difference between writing for the newspaper and my own food blog? Well, I have to deliver the articles by the deadline and I really enjoy the writing experience. Furthermore, it gives me great joy to see my work in print!

I have written a few articles, all of which have now been published and there are more to come. Do grab a copy of the New Straits Times and check out my articles. Hope everyone enjoys reading it!
