Malaysian Road Trip – Penang: Pinang Peranakan Mansion

After dim sum at Tho Yuen, we walked over to the Pinang Peranakan Mansion. It was the second time there for Anya, Adrian and me but I find the building and the recreation of a typical Peranakan home really fascinating. We forgot to visit the adjoining ancestral temple the last time we were at the mansion so we made sure we found our way there through the ‘secret’ passage this time around.

Malaysian Road Trip – Penang: Tho Yuen Dim Sum

We visited this old school dim sum joint back in March and it pretty good so we brought the Lobos this time around! We arrived at the right time and still had plenty to choose from.

Malaysian Road Trip – Penang: Bali Hai Seafood Restaurant

While we were in Penang, we had dinner at Bali Hai again! It’s quite touristy, not the cheapest, but the variety is great and the food is delicious!
