Penang, a land of myriad charms

... So I connected with some culinary and cultural experts in Penang to organise a weekend trip with my Singaporean pal some months back.
Upon arrival, we were greeted by food expert Baba Jerry, a proud Penangite. He has brought many visitors, both locals and foreigners, to the many nooks and crannies on the island for delicious food. Many of them were off the beaten "touristy" path.
Once, Baba Jerry took two foreign women, one Australian Vietnamese and the other a German, for a round-the-island food tour - they savoured a total of 12 different dishes in 10 hours! The women were overwhelmed but truly pleased to be able to discover Penang this way. They vowed to return for more.
On this trip, we discovered new food favourites which we never knew existed in Penang.
