Needing a break from the monotony of Brunei, I booked flights to visit Penang, an island located north east of Kuala Lumpur. Penang is known for being a British colony and was captured by the Japanese during WW2.

Since last summer was all about the transition from Thailand to Brunei, I didn’t have the time or money to do a detox.

It can be a bit tricky to cater for my diet, as I require gluten and dairy free, but choose not to eat meat. I still have fish andContinue reading “My Great Canadian Food Adventure (Ontario & East Coast)”
