Penang island local travel tips by

My friend and I started a new blog over at bringing you an insiders guide to Penang island local travel tips. We just started it so it will get better and better over time.

Many people who are planning their trips to Penang always ask us to recommend places to visit, to eat, to stay, to do…so here is a website to point you to the right direction because often we are too busy to give you an answer.

If you have never visited Penang, now is a good time to do some research!

Sketch of the day no 672 in my moleskine art journal: vintage ice shaver, to make ice kacang, Penang.

vintage ice shaver to make ice kacang

Sketch of the day no 672 in my moleskine art journal is of a retro vintage ice shaver which is used to make ice kacang, a famous Penang dessert. A block of ice is placed between the Base and a spiked lid. When the handle is turned the ice is rotated and shaved at the Base. A bowl is placed underneath to collect the shaved ice.
Ice kacang is the dessert made from the shaved ice. Rose syrup and other ingredients such as kidney beans, attapci and bananas are added for more colour and taste!
