Time with family and sketching food in Penang

 I was fortunate to be able to travel with my family to Penang. I had spent consirable amount of time there as a kid, since it is my mother’s hometown and I still have relatives living there.

Most of the family activities were food-related, although we also visited some places that I hadn’t been to since I was little.

There was a huge variety of local food to try – variety of noodles; stir-fries and soups, rice, local cakes, roast meats and seafood, the list goes on and on.
