Kek Lok Si Temple Octagonal Pavilion

Jul 9, 10 at 1:02 am

During my visit to Penang last month, we drove up to Kek Lok Si temple for a closer look at its new octagonal pavilion. The 20-storey high pavilion, built to shelter the Goddess of Mercy (Kuan Yin) bronze statue, sits atop the hill and can be seen as far as from Gurney, the place I stayed throughout my trip.

Sunshine Bay Seafood Restaurant, Tanjung Bungah

Jun 26, 10 at 9:57 pm

During my short stay in Penang, I managed to visit Sunshine Bay Seafood Restaurant located at Tanjung Bungah thanks to one of our friend’s tips. For me, it is quite hard to describe the proper direction to the place but you can always check this site for a more comprehensive and detailed write-ups.

We reached the place at around 7.30pm on a beautiful Saturday evening and it was packed to the max. We managed to secure a table for seven of us and the lady boss recommended some of the dishes for us.

We waited quite a while, probably 20 minutes or so but that’s okay with us because of the overwhelming crowd that day.

Durian Fest at Balik Pulau, Penang

Jun 23, 10 at 12:58 am

I was in Penang for a short getaway last weekend for some good food and good company. One of the highlights from the trip was the durian excursion at Balik Pulau. In fact, if you have not heard about it, this is the place where you can get relatively good durian. Well, I shall leave the fact findings to my friends who hail from Penang as I’m going to talk about the ongoing Durian Fest happening right now at Balik Pulau.
