KOTA KINABALU: Sabah-born Australian Foreign Affairs Minister Penny Wong took a trip down memory lane when she had breakfast at her favourite Kuo Man Restaurant in Sunny Garden here on Thursday (June 30).

She was seen digging into her favourite congee, soup noodle, fish ball soup and Chinese tea with her brother James Wong, who is an architect in Sabah.

Penny told reporters that the restaurant brought nostalgic memories of her years as a child in Sabah with her father Datuk Francis Wong who took her and her siblings to the restaurant often.

Francis is currently in Australia.

Wong, who was born in Kota Kinabalu where she spent her early years before moving to Australia at eight years old, is currently on her first official visit here.

As part of her three-day working visit to Malaysia, Wong had a networking brunch with government, business and civil society leaders on Wednesday (June 29), where she paid homage to her paternal grandmother for being her source of strength during hard times.
