My Penang - where to go and what to eat".....   Personally, the crème de la crème in this book is the Where To Eat chapter. Lim, like most true Penangnites, knows her food. She has detailed all the places one can think of or has been to. I believe she has covered most food places of repute......MY PENANG - Review by PHILIP LIM (New Straits Times) review
