I have to admit, I fall in love in Penang. Hold on, hold on, this is not the kind of post that shares TMI (too much info) about intimate relationships while traveling, because, for one, I did not fall in love with a person or a place. I fall in love with FOOD. My god, the street food here are just one of its kind. They don't call this place the "Food Paradise" for nothing.
Penang is an island off the coast of the Malaysian peninsula. Relative to neighboring countries, Penang is not very well known as a vacation destination for most tourists because of its not-so-beautiful beaches but due to its rich multicultural history full of Malay, Chinese, Indian and European influences, the city truly provides you a one-of-a-kind experience.
