I’m an INFJ…!
This also means that I am not longer with My Fat Pocket, don’t worry it wasn’t due to any bad blood or anything. It is just that the contract term has expired and I do not wish to renew it.
So yes, I will be blogging over at my new platform from now onwards and will not be updating here anymore.
GUESS I’LL SEE YOU GUYS AT JEANGAN.COM ??
It is very heart-warming to know that many of my readers actually enjoyed my first blog post on Penang day 1! Thank you so much, you don’t know how these positive feedback from you guys really mean to us! It gives us bloggers even more motivation to blog 🙂
Here is how my day 2 in Penang went.
First stop was to the Pinang Peranakan Mansion. This was where the local film the “Little Nonya” was filmed at.
Extracted from their official website, “At the Pinang Peranakan Mansion, the typical home of a rich Baba of a century ago is recreated to offer a glimpse of their opulent lifestyle and of their many customs and traditions. With over 1,000 pieces of antiques and collectibles of the era on display, this Baba-Nyonya museum is also housed in one of Penang’s heritage mansion of eclectic design and architecture. “
Address : 29, Lebuh Gereja, Pulau Pinang, Malaysia
Don’t wish to bore you with the tonnes of pictures I took, so here are some of them :
Level 2 :
An antique camera.
A little gift shop.
A little cafe selling some of the famous Penang Peranakan food!
Us trying to imitate the way the “olden people” pose for pictures. LOL.
Overall, I think it is quite an awesome experience. They even attached an English-speaking ‘guider’ to explain to the visitors of the history of the lives of the Peranakan.
And then we continued our journey to hunt for good food again and managed to snap some pictures of the cute little girl 🙂
Tommy drove us to experience the new bridge which is linked to the mainland. This is the Sultan Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah Bridge and it is the second bridge to link the island to the mainland after the first Penang Bridge.
Along the way, there were several cows which I didn’t manage to snap pictures of 😦
But here are some villages along the side of the road.
We had lunch at a chinese restaurant called Ah Yen Seafood Restaurant
Address : 701, Batu Kawan, 14110, Simpang Ampat, Penang. 019-4133379 / 04-5872616
Review on the food : It wasn’t that fantastic and we were a little disappointed in their food 😦 Mum was of the opinion that the chicken had this ‘frozen’ taste. The rest of the food were mediocre and if I were to pick the best dish, that would be the fried tofu.
The bf showed me a tourist pamphlet and I told myself that I had to pay a visit to this cafe.
Address : 53, Jalan Muntri Georgetown, Penang, Malaysia
I have not visited any cat cafes before, not even those in Singapore so I was really thrilled when I discovered that Penang has one! 😀
The cafe has 2 levels.
The first level allows you to place your food and drinks orders and they sell loads of kitty-related stuffs too!
This is level 2 where you can visit the kitties and have a relaxing cuppa~
I was actually looking forward to having some rainbow cakes but they don’t sell them, so we settled with red velvet. 🙂
I thought the red velvet was filled with too much cream and felt kinda cheated because the ones we have in Singapore do not have layers of cream in between 😦
We ordered a cuppa of cappuccino with came with a cute kitty coffee art!
Caught in the act!! Look at them fat arms! :O
And I’m sure most of you guys are wondering where are the kitties?!
Here they are!
To be honest, I liked kitties before I liked dogs. But kitties are less approachable and look less friendly, unless dogs who are most of the time, friendlier and livelier!
There was a enclosed glass panel which some cats were placed in. There were signs to informed customers not to knock against the glass. I’m not sure why these cats were segregated from the rest though. Could it be they are feeling unwell? 😦
Since The Camera Museum was beside the cafe, we popped by for a visit!
Address : 49 Lebuh Muntri, George Town, Penang.
They sell cakes and coffee too!
I love these cafes, their concepts and their ambience. Perfect for a relaxing day to unwind and take the stress off your mind temporarily.
Tommy then took us to a very cool and exciting place which is none other than…
Address : 31a Jalan Gurdwara (opposite of the Grand Continental Hotel) , George Town, Malaysia
Honestly, I had the exact same reaction as you when I first saw the front of the place. I was clueless as to what this place was and what interesting stuffs it can offer, but was later awed by its arty farty style.
After that, we went shopping at 1st Avenue, a huge shopping centre (Msia’s shopping centres are mega HUGE!!) located at Jalan Magazine, Georgetown, 10300 Georgetown, Pulau Pinang, Malaysia where we had our dinner at Old Town White Coffee there and Tommy came to pick us up a 9.30pm. No pictures because my camera battery died and there wasn’t anything special and camera-worthy of 😦
We reached the hotel quite early and sort of had an early rest (we watched dramas on the telly).
I guess the second day was the most fruitful day of all, conquering many interesting places all in one day! 🙂
I know this may come as a surprise to some of you, I too am surprised myself that I actually agreed to take up this assignment. It is going to be a challenge indeed and those who know me well, would know that I love challenges. I like accepting challenges and giving my best to accomplish them because the sense of achievement is something which money can never buy.
I have been rather busy and packed for these 2 to 3 weeks as I have taken up extra assignments on my own (more on that soon!) and one of them is my first fashion event which I will be modelling for. I have attended a few fashion events before but as part of the audience and not as a model.
Before agreeing to participate for this event, I actually took some time to consider carefully because modelling wasn’t really my thang. It gives me a bad impression being a model, but yeah I guess I was just being biased. I usually shun assignments that depends heavily on beauty (oh the irony of being a beauty blogger?) because I never want to be looked upon as a bimbo. I guess I’ve gotta change my mentality on that now because taking up this modelling assignment actually allows me to learn several things which I believe would benefit me. Am trying to be positive here, haha. I will be blogging about the post-event filled with pretty pictures, hopefully! 😛
So yes, if you would like to see me strut officially for the very first time, please feel free to make it for the event!
