I’m sure everyone has been noticing – I’ve been reviewing a LOT of Malaysian instant noodles lately. The reason for this is that I have a ton of different varieties with more on their way – but this one’s a first! This is the first Penang White Curry bowl variant I’ve tried. Let’s have a look!
Here’s detail of the side panels (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add in all sachets and add boiling water to fill line (you’ll notice in the picture there are two – the manufacturer has told me that the printer put the line at the wrong spot, so new bowls will have it in the correct spot, but they marked it – the lower one). Cover and steep for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

An included fork!
The noodle block.
Dry seasoning powder.
Has a strong seafood scent.
A sachet of creamer.
A very fine powder.
The paste sachet.
A thick paste with a lovely scent.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added tau pok (tofu puff), mung bean sprouts, fishball and coriander. The noodles are really great – broad flat ones. They had an excellent texture and chew that I really liked. The broth was excellent as well – nice and thick. I did find however that when you stir the noodles after steeping, you really need to stir and stir until the paste is fully combined or you might get a big bite of strong curry paste. 4.75 out of 5.0 stars.

Penang as the World Heritage City: From Tourists’ Place Experience Perspectives – (from Amazon) – This book explores the dimensions of Cultural Traits and Heritage tourism in Penang. Penang is attractive to tourists because of its uniqueness, heritage and it is a cultural city with multi- racial ethnic population. Lack of knowledge and experience, combined with different interest may cause the tourism industry collapse. Cultural Traits and Heritage tourism is discussed as Penang’s opportunity to create tourism platform where resources and market would be kept and at the same time, competition with other World Heritage Cities will be created. Cultural Traits and Heritage recently has become an important topic and concept to tourism development especially in Penang since Penang was awarded as the World Heritage City by UNSECO in July 2008. Hence, in this research, it proposes the links of self representation to current desired outcomes of Penang’s distinctiveness and sustainability of Penang UNESCO award. At the same time, the model also tests how these outcomes influence the destination ability to meet tourists’ expectations and how Penang should act in competing in the global heritage tourism industry.
