Japanese Melonpan in Penang – ペナンのメロンパン

あなたは、Queensbay Mallでメロンパンを見つけることができます

尊敬的客户我们已经到了Queensbay Mall.三楼Queens食品市场,GSC电影院旁边或荣寿司楼上噢~~~~

For any and all Melon Pan fans, you can find it in Queensbay Mall, 3nd floor Queens Food Market beside GSC Cinema or Sakae Sushi on the northern end of the food court.  It has custard in it, but Mrs Tropical Expat enjoyed it, and so did I.

And if you want to hear the Melon Pan song

Japanese note / 日本のノート; 盆踊り

Checking my blog statistics I was very surprised to note that I had such a large number of visitors today. And the majority were from Japan.

ぼくはどうしてかまったくわからない.

I don’t know why. I haven’t written about Japan, or in Japanese. I did write about Korean food, though.

So, I will mention a couple of things concerning Japanese. Tomorrow, Sunday 25th March there is a Japanese theme at the monthly Upper Penang Road market.

A lot of Japanese do live in Penang.  More Japanese took up the MM2H visa than any other nationality last year. And many live here on tourist visas for part of the year, and live in Japan for the rest of the year.

Otherwise, my favourite Japanese restaurant here is Miraku, in the G Hotel on Gurney drive. Miraku details. But for all you can eat salmon sashimi, then the E&O lunch buffet is probably impossible to beat.

And my favourite Japanese event of the year is the Bon-Odori festival, held around mid- July.

A couple of photos from last year’s event.
