Back in May, I was invited to St.Jo's Level 1 at Gurney Paragon Mall to witness the official launching of Time Out Penang Food and Beverage Guide.

If you are the kind of person that always have no idea of where to have your lunch or dinner, or to have high tea with your friend at Gurney Paragon Mall, here's a good news for you! You need not worry anymore as Gurney Paragon Mall has just published their first ever comprehensive food and beverage guide.

The launching ceremony was officiated by the Penang State Exco For Tourism Development, YB Danny Law, Hunza Group Executive Director, Ms. Khor Tze Ming, Mongoose Publishing Chief Content Officer, Mr. Matt Bellotti, with the witnesses by Gurney Paragon Mall's F&B outlets' owners and representatives, food bloggers and the media.

Gurney Paragon Mall's food and beverage guide covers all the food and beverage outlets in the mall, from the world-renowned franchise brand like TGI Friday's, Starbucks to cosmopolitan local outlets such as Ben's ad Brussels Beer Cafe. The booklet is pocket size and it's user-friendly. You can get information such as outlets' business hours, contact numbers, websites and even the price rating in the guide.

Every entry has been reviewed by the Time Out team to present the most comprehensive guide possible to the food and beverage treats at Gurney Paragon Mall.

On the same day, Time Out Penang 2014/15 annual magazine is also being launched and is now opened for sale to the public. The magazine provides an array of information such as the best place to shop in Penang, the best heritage sites, the best education institutions and include all the best food you can find in Penang!

There was a Penang Laksa Eating Competition, followed by Penang Laksa Cooking Competition after the launching of the food and beverage guide. Each contestant had to finish a bowl of 1kg Laksa as fast as they could in order to win the grand prize!

I find that the Gurney Paragon Mall's food and beverage guide and the Time Out Penang annual magazine are very useful to me. I can just look through both the guide and magazine when I am out of idea of where to hang out with my friends or as a tour guide when I friends travel in Penang.
