Once a while you find a culinary gem that everything seemed right and in this case Thai cuisine.

Thai cuisine is no stranger in the Penang eating scenes but this little kitchen by the popular market on the island seemed to dish out fantastic authentic Thai food

We were invited to sample a variety of delicious home cooked Thai food. All together there are more than 30 dishes on the platter and menu. A choice that can satisfy any person's desire. All the food is well balanced in terms of taste and sight

My personal favourites are:-

- Thai Otak Otak (Hor Mok)
- Jack Fruit with sticky rice (Khoa Niao Kha Noon)
- Fresh mango with sticky rice (Khoa Niao Ma Muang)
- Thai dessert with coconut milk and water chesnut (Tub Thim Krob)
- Thai chicken rice (Khao Mun Gai)
- Thai Laksa (Khao Nom Chin)
- Thai Fried Rice (Khao Yam)
- Tom Yam Goong
- Red syrup (Nam Daeng) with sago
- Green syrup (Nam Kaew) with sago

I like the Otak because the texture is one of the smoothest I have ever tasted (true skill). The Jackfruit and Mango goes well with the sticky rice. Their Thai Laksa is very unique and creamy. You can really taste the fresh ingredients used. Thai fried rice is just so pretty to look at, wonderful of colours of the ingredients is just too good to mix it up. And the Tom Yam Goong is one of the best I have ever tasted.
I can't wait to go back for dinner. They have a totally diffrent menu for dinner

Overall the restaurant offers a wide variety of authentic Thai home cooked dishes at reasonable price. It is clean and offers relaxed indoor and outdoor seating. Not surprising as the Matriarch of the kitchen is of Thai decent. I recommend my readers to try it

Blog Fest Asia 2010

I casually heard about this blog fest from my nephew and later friends. Intrigued, I surfed the web and many times thinking should I register or not. However, it did not take me long to decide to register. It is an international event and the first Blog Fest Asia was held in Hong Kong. I thought I am sure I am not going to miss the chance to attend, now that it is in Malaysia and best of all in my home state of Penang!!

When I heard there was seats available for the Penang Heritage Tour, I jumped at the opportunity to learn more about the heritage and get to know more about the international blogger community. The cream of the tour was a feast to our local foods and drinks. I enjoyed the tour, it was informative and eye-opening. Thanks to Tourism Malaysia who sponsored the tour.
That night, we were invited to a dinner for all registered bloggers at the QE2 restaurant. We took this time to get to know fellow bloggers and the blogging scene in their countries. The mood was relaxing but we did not stayed on for long as we had an earlier morning start

Saturday was a big day. A larger group of bloggers all congregated at Wawasan Open University at the Northam Road campus. There were local and international blogger from all over the world from Taiwan to India and across the ocean to France and the United States of America.

The events got off a good start with Keynote address, panel discussion and later breakout sessions to discuss about security and privacy issues, commercializing the blog and new technology in the blogsphere.

In the evening, we attended a dinner and cultural event organized by Tourism Malaysia. Our international friends were treated to can impressive cultural dance and Chingay demonstration. The night proceeded to the awards ceremonies where new and seasoned bloggers were recognized for their contributions to the blogging scene.

In summary, with the Blog Fest Asia being an international event, clearly shows that blogging has come a long way from a hobby to an established community in the world arena. And I am glad that government and state agencies together with private companies has sponsored this fest to be held here in Malaysia, clearly shows that Malaysian bloggers is a force and to show our international friends and Malaysia and Penang has much more to offer to see, eat and live!
