There are many new cafes with interesting ambience and unique features to explore in Penang, especially with the cafe culture gaining much popularity over the last few years. Most of these quaint cafes managed by both locals and expatriates are located in the heritage enclave of George Town and it is definitely worth exploring on foot.

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!

I was in Kuala Lumpur recently to attend the launching of the inaugural fund raising event “JAMUAN TEH MALAYSIA” (Malaysia Tea Party) in the elegant ballroom of Prince Hotel & Residence Kuala Lumpur. The event was modeled after the Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea, held annually by the Australian Cancer Council.

Initiated by the Australian High Commission and MANZA (Malaysia Australian New Zealand Association) and organized by the BCWA (Breast Cancer Welfare Association) and NCSM (National Cancer Society Malaysia), the event featured a Fashion Show by our local outstanding designer, Carven Ong. Many gather for the event which was graced by Her Excellency Ms Penny Williams, Australia High Commissioner to Malaysia.

The day started with a “yum cha” session at the old eatery, Aik Hoe Restaurant located in Carnavon Street. This restaurant which occupied two shop houses still managed to retain its old nostalgic charm after fifty over years. The fixtures of old ceiling fans with flooring of small squares of blue and white tiles still remain there after all these years, making this place a real heritage in its own way.


Nothing much have changed and the restaurant still has the very ‘Chinese old school look’, even still with its signature metal chairs. The shop’s name has been embedded into the metal chair itself; a real rare find nowadays.
