GEORGE TOWN: Could Fish Leong be the next face of Penang tourism?

The smiling angel-faced songbird expressed interest in the role during the launching of a slimming centre at the Island Plaza shopping centre here.

“I've loved Penang for a long time. When I was younger, my family used to take drives from Seremban to Penang to visit friends or go on holiday.

“The beaches and scenery are wonderful and I would hope very much to be the face of Penang tourism,” Leong, a Negri Sembilan native, said yesterday.

The 30-year-old petite singer, who is now based in Taiwan, said she could not get enough of Penang's famous street food.

“The char koay teow is terrific and I managed to get great curry mee and wantan mee on this trip as well,” she said.

When contacted, state Tourism, Culture, Arts and Heritage Committee chairman Danny Law Heng Kiang said the state has yet to consider appointing state tourism ambassadors but he was thrilled with Leong’s proposal.

“The state welcomes anyone who wants to help out. We're especially happy when Malaysians who have made it big overseas want to come back and contribute,” said Law.

“Former Miss Malaysia Arianna Teoh has also expressed interest in helping out and we're hoping to rope in Datuk Nicol David as well,” he added.
