One comment on “Butterworth”

The food, the people, and the weather. Known far and wide for its varied and exotic cuisine, Butterworth’s wealth of good food is perhaps only dwarfed by that of its island counterpart. Though not as exciting or riveting as its twin, brimming with its colorful hallmarks and histories, there is something captivating about the humble pleasures one stumbles upon when venturing its twinkling streets, winking alive with muted curiosity at the crack of dawn. You hear the echo of chortle and chatter that is soon accompanied by the aroma of pastries and cakes, the new morning now as warm as a memory as fond as it is faded.
