We took a trip up to Penang recently and it was love at first sight.

We’ve both been to Penang in the past, albeit not together. My memory was sketchy and didn’t retain details of my prior visits. A cruise followed by a trip to Kek Lok Si and assam laksa at the foothills. I’ve seen the pictures of a child version of me at the botanical gardens feeding the monkeys but no real recollection.

Although short-lived, we managed to catch a little slice of the beauty within Penang and took back some memories that I’m sure we’ll classify as fond in the years to come.
