She Walks the World

The island of Penang, located in the north of Peninsular Malaysia on its west coast, is known as the food haven of Malaysia. Penang cuisine is the result of the multicultural society of the country; and the variety of food can be found all over the island– at roadside cafes, hawkers stalls, food courts and local mamaks (coffee shops). Even for locals, one of the must-do things on a visit to Penang is to eat.

My One Day Food Trail in Penang - www.shewalkstheworld.comI recently made a weekend visit to Georgetown, the historical center of Penang, and spent the day looking for the best eats in the area. Some were recommendations from local Penang friends, and some were suggested by people I met in the city. As I only had one day, I could only taste the surface of all the fantastic food available on the island– but at the end of the day, my appetite was satiated…

The Filipino Wanderer

I am definitely a man who’s after value for money.

So when my mom asked me whether I wanted to try having a buffet dinner at Market Cafe for about $50 per person, it was an understatement to say that I was skeptical about it. In fact, I wasn’t that thrilled. I wasn’t planning on spending $100 when I can dine at a great restaurant for a fraction of the cost.

But since we were in the area, (my mom tried her hands at the slots), we proceeded to have dinner at Market Cafe, located at the third floor of the Hyatt Hotel and Casino in Malate, Manila.

Now, being the food lover that I am, I am very much familiar with buffet dinners. I’ve tried having dinner at Spiral in Sofitel; Circles in Makati Shang; Heat in Edsa Shang; Escolta in Manila Pen; Cafe Ilang-Ilang in Manila Hotel and…

Teh Tarik is a Indian based tea that is also famous in Malaysia and Singapore. You can find this kind of tea in the traditional hawker stalls and kopi tiams in Singapore.
Its name, “Teh tarik” is derived from the pouring process of “pulling” the drink during preparation.Teh Tarik is made from black tea (we prefer the Cameron Highlands tea BOH), sweeted condensed milk and some ginger juice; may be added which is commonly called “Teh Sarbat” or “Teh Halia” (Ginger Tea).

She Walks the World

During my last visit to Singapore, I spent time exploring the city and visiting several of its attractions. So on my one day visit to the Lion City this time, I decided to stay put in one place and explore the area– Chinatown.

A Day in Singapore's Chinatown - www.shewalkstheworld.com

Singapore’s Chinatown is located within the larger Singaporean district of Outram. Walking out of the MRT Station at Chinatown, I was instantly thrust into the hustle and bustle of its shopping street. There was a busy traffic of people; walking, shopping, pushing. Vendors were standing by the side of their stalls; some oblivious to the commotion, some calling out to their possible buyers. There were also groups of chilled-out travelers just sitting in the many food stalls with several beers on the table; drinking and people-watching. And of course, from time to time there’s that occasional picture-taking tourist who would stop right smack in the middle…
