The 1st Crib Quilt South Asia Tour 2016 - Singapore and Malaysia - Penang, Malaysia

Right after the second workshop in Singapore finished, we hopped on a plane and arrived in Penang late at night.

The organizer, The Home Quilter, has been running their quilt shop for four years. Overnight they beautifully displayed the projects and works that we had brought.

The students were so enthusiastic!
At noon all of us, including the students, went to a restaurant for lunch which was only a few minutes drive from the store. 
While we were having lunch we noticed that there was nobody else but us because they wanted to go back and work on the project as early as possible!

Day 2 students at a vegetarian restaurant

For the first time you may see a picture where a man is wearing the AC16 panel apron.
It looks nice on him, doesn't it?
That's Mr. Kor, the shop owner Lynee's husband. She is on his left in the photo.
At the beginning it seemed he hesitated, but it turned out to be a wonderful photo!

Day 1 students, their works in progress in their hands!

Day 2 students, their works in progress in their hands!
We had a whole free day and Mr. Kor and Lynee took us to the Peranakan museum on Penang island. There was so much to see! 

This is the well-known site for tourists.

After looking around the center of the island, we went to a shopping mall to have dinner and tea. A cute boy, Ting, is their fourth child and Masako totally adored him.

Personally, I liked this dish called Bak kut teh very much.
Vegetables and pork are cooked in broth containing lots of herbs and spices. 
It tasted so good that we bought some ready to cook packages in order to enjoy this Malaysian atmosphere at home because the aroma is so distinctive and stimulates your appetite!

We had a great time, Mr.Kor and Lynee!
