penang wedding 2

This is a trip where the kids (more the girls, rather, since Day has always been a fan) were convincingly won over by the food in Penang.

How I know is because after a while the wet floors, squat toilets, slightly greasy tables and cutlery, chairs with stray food morsels on it, roadside dodgy-looking carts, no longer mattered to them.

Not even to finicky Jo, the self-declared high-maintenance girl who ate like there was no tomorrow, and who now understands what I mean when I say the best food comes out of humble kitchens.

We filled ourselves to the brim every day in roadside stalls. I’m just going to let it rip.
