You know how your mum always warn you against being greedy with your food? Well, it was hard not to be a glutton when it came to the street foods of Penang. In fact, during my visit there, I was on a non-stop food adventure on practically every street!
I had delicious milk tea every day for breakfast, snacked on golden dough fritters from the market, ate a full lunch and had yet even more food for dinner and topped it off with desserts! And REPEAT for like every single day that I was in Penang.
Was I a glutton? Well…
I’ve got to say, though, that being familiar with these food made it very easy for me to be a glutton on the streets of Penang. Most of these foods are similar to those found in Singapore and it’s very easy to get caught up with trying all the different choices that I just got carried away.
After all, I found out that mothers really do know best when they tell their children not to be gluttons. My food adventures lasted only 3 days instead of the full 4 days. By the last day, my stomach protested against my gluttony and I ended up being sick and throwing up.
My doctor summed it up perfectly for me.
I had simply overindulged and I ended up paying the price for such gluttony.
Have you ever overindulged on food? What do you like to try out when you visit a new place? Please do share! 🙂
