Not ready to completely give up the lives they built in the U.S. over the last eighteen years, Californians Bee and Kien are buying a second home in Penang in order to raise their son Gareth with a connection to his Malaysian roots. Bee wants the newest generation of the family to grow up around all his cousins, aunts and uncles while at the same time be close to the family they miss as well. Being a food blogger about Asian cooking, Bee also notices this as an opportunity to be able to explore the recipes of her homeland straight from the food preparers and purveyors that make Penang the epicenter of Malaysian cuisine. They unfortunately are coming up against a real estate market that is as fast paced as the lifestyle of this rapidly expanding, diverse urban landscape. Even with their $400,000 budget, it still may not be enough to create the perfect blend of city center living at an affordable price.
