It is over a year since my trip to Penang, Malaysia, my wife's hometown.

If you take a look Penang island at google map, you'll find that this island and several small islands surrounded it make Penang state looks like a big turtle.

Before the spring festival of 2007, we decided to spend the holiday in Penang, so after an eight hour long trip, we reached the heart of the "big turtle". It was really hot in the days when we stay there, my father in law said it's always hot in that season, so if you want to travel to Penang, don't choose the period of spring festival, try some other season.

The food in Penang is very famous in southeast Asia, Hokkien prawn noodle, chaoguotiao, Penang laksa... are all very nice. and the tastes are really different from those in Singapore.

It's a nice memory there and I wish to travel there again :)
