So after hours of coffee, brunch and exploring of China House, we walked over to Armenian Street which was just around the corner to have a look at the famous wall paintings.
See what I mean with the blog article? People around the world queues under the hot sun everyday just to take a selfie with them.
Since the queue was so long, I picked this wall art instead.
Armenian Street in Penang is very cool. Why? Cos we can rent bicycles to go around the area or just ride on one of these trishaws, with a fee of course.
Temples were the attractions there as well.
This trishaw was placed by the street for tourists to take photos with.
The best discovery that day was this wall painting which was so real. LOVE IT!
So I basically spent some time in China House that day. Here’s a shot of the place from the stairs!
It’s a very long cafe.
Random shot of the staff
As I walked to the back of the cafe, nature starts to take over.
Posing a bit in the backyard/pond area.
Upstairs is some art gallery thingymajig
The next morning in Penang, I woke up early for breakfast!
There were all sorts of food la but I purposely took this for Instagram sake only lol
Some angpaus I collected from CNY day 1 in Penang.
Then around noon, we went to China House for brunch!
Love how they transformed the heritage buildings into a hipster-mainstream cafe.
Their signature plethora of cakes.
More photos from China House next!
So it was a Chinese New Year night. So we went to Kek Lok Si temple which was located on top of a hill. It was my first time there anyway.
The road up was so packed with cars! We had to park halfway and walk up.

Candles were lit throughout the whole place.
Top view shot. For instagram? Hmm
The walk in the quiet town continues. This is usually how Penang looks like during the first day of Chinese New Year.
It’s so empty I could sit in the middle of the road. lol
OK at least there were some stalls and hawkers on the streets
Not just people. Dog also went missing.
Found a white wall. So had to pose again.
Sun was about to set. Hungry.
So we went to have some vegetarian food!
This might come a little late but based on the arrangements of my pending posts and photos, this should come out at the right time.
These photos were taken in Penang, when I visited the island with my parents during Chinese New Year this year.
I did some research and found that this hotel is very new and it located in the middle of the Penang town. Hence I booked it. Checked it and lovin it.
Was walking around the lobby and found this cozy corner.
Then I realised that this corner is more cozy! Had to pose a bit.
After checking in n stuff, I went for a short walk around the hotel area.
Then I realised something. “Where is everyone?”
More nail-biting discoveries in the next post. Stay tuned.
Techduology is coming back! R U READY?
Super excited about this.
Jimmy is awesome.
It was my first time dining at Food Foundry. Heard a lot about this place and finally got to check out the place when we celebrated Karen’s birthday back in January.
When we arrived, it was packed. So we waited for quite a bit before getting this table. Hungry yo!
Ordered this. Quite small portion. Pfft.
The latte. RM11. Average.
Since the whole table was filled with girls, we took some time to chit chat after eating. Hehe
Say hello to my teammates.
So is food foundry worth checking out? Well, if it was 2013, yes. But there are so many other restaurants with similar ambience and better food nowadays so I guess there is no need to check out this place if you haven’t.
In case you still wanna go try their food, here’s the address:
BG-8 Jalan 17/13,
46400 Petaling Jaya, Selangor
If you are looking for a quiet cafe to just chill, catch up with friends or just enjoy coffee and cakes, then this is it lah.. no where else. This is Coffee Amo at Jalan Sultan (Petaling Street).
Got to know about this place from a friend who frequents this cafe and we decided to go on a weekend. This was how it looked like when I was there. Hope there’s nothing much changed now. Heh.
One of the recommended cakes there is the Nutella Choc cake. About RM10 but I think cake prices are around RM10-12 nowadays so yea.. cant complaint anymore.
Ordered a latte and they did a peacock art for me. Yay!
Here’s the interior. Very simple with a little bit of chinese opera elements as deco. Oh btw, this cafe is located on 1st floor, inside a chinese opera hall. Hipster much?
Plants, logos, those kinda things.
I have never returned to this cafe since my first visit. Not to say it’s bad but I don’t prefer quiet cafes. You know quiet like no music, customers whispering kinda quiet. Also, my latte was too hot, like 100′degrees hot, which is a no-no.
If you would like to try, check them out at Jalan Sultan. They now have another outlet at TTDI too.
Just 2 days ago, I was at the launch of #ForeverFaster campaign by PUMA at Berjaya Timessquare.
It is actually a global campaign which was launched at the same time worldwide. According to PUMA Southeast Asia General Manager, Miguel Andrade, “We believe every Malaysian has Forever Faster in them, being ambitious, bold and charismatic in nature. It is not about making Malaysians Forever Faster, but rather bringing the Forever Faster out of them.”
Managed to catch up with fellow PUMA friends Simonso, Cailin & Wee Wern.
Melvin Siew, the country manager for Malaysia officiated the launch by dropping down the curtain revealing the PUMA Red Wall, challenging everyone to climd it and reach the top!
All of us PUMA Friends were then called upon to grab a photo with Melvin and the wall.
The country manager himself challenged the wall as a sign to welcome all Malaysians to come and try. It is currently at the main entrance of Berjaya Timessquare so please go and see if you have the bravery, determination, joy to face the 3-metre wall
