Pulau Penang | Malaysia (April 2013)

Charlie Brown Cafe @ Straits Quay, Penang

 -Are you a fan of Charlie Brown comic? What about Snoopy? If you are a fan of Charlie Brown comics, you will love the newly opened at Straits Quay. Its interior decoration has everything from lights, table tops to wallpapers and most importantly they sell souvenirs of Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the gang.


I know that Charlie Brown Cafe (查里布朗咖啡馆)has become a hot topic in the town now. Located at Straits Quay, this outlet is the first of Charlie Brown Cafe in Malaysia. Surprisingly they open the first Peanuts theme cafe in Penang but not in KL. The other outlets that I know are location in Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore and China.

First of all, ordering is self service here but the food and drinks will be delivered to your table.






<==================

The cutest cheese cake you will ever see – Espresso Cheese Cake @ RM9.50

==================>

Charlie Brown Tiramisu @ RM12









Luckily the drinks are not too bad and they look really nice too.

==================>

Each cuppa comes with a different cartoon character coffee art on the foam. For example, Lucy appears on the hot Latte (RM9.50) while it is Wookstock for the Mocha (RM11) and Snoopy is on a cup of Hot Chocolate...




The type of food sold there varies from appetizers right up to desserts. You will have soups, snacks, pastas, sandwiches, pizzas to local favorites and desserts. Drink will also be various coffee to tea to the healthy drinks to shakes and sodas.


It seems many have flocked to the cafe to have a closer look and take tonnes of pictures with the well-loved Snoopy, Woodstock, Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus and the rest of the gang.

The cafe is huge and divided into different sections with different layouts - sofa seats, private rooms, casual rattan chairs... Overall spacious enough to maneuver buggies and for kids to run


Great place for a meet-up or a hang out but it isnt THAT awesome of a place to have dinner or lunch coz there isnt a wide variety of food for you to choose

Charlie Brown Cafe is a really really good place for avid picture takers
because its the only place in Penang with a cartoon themed restaurant.

There is also a Souvenir Corner which you to get some collection if you find the characters adorably charmingly cute. 

Its well decorated interior with faces of the "Peanuts" family all over the place.

it was not really opened such as Starbucks or Coffee Bean franchising a lot, but it seems to be unique due to the limited stores that can be found in the world!

We can view the quay from inside the restaurant, we saw boats and seawater.

There is a separate function room for, let’s say, kiddy parties. You can watch the strip figures and their capers on tv. There cafe is spotlessly clean..

aren't you interested to know more about the Peanuts gang? If you know them well...

The price that worth it is the environment and the stories behind the characters.

wanna know about peanuts??


Charlie Brown is an example of "the great American un-success story" in that he fails in almost everything he does, a total contrast with M. Schulz's work which is referred as "the great American success story". He is meek, nervous and lacks self-confidence, being unable to fly a kite, win a baseball game or kick a football. He is almost bald, with barely a little hair in front. He is Snoopy's owner but apparently Snoopy's intelligence is way much higher than him...

Snoopy, on the other hand, is known as "the world's most famous beagle". He does not look very much like a beagle, because beagle normally has tricolor (tan, black and white) but Snoopy has only black and white fur. Snoopy slept on top of his doghouse (doghouse in the below picture), rather than inside it. He seldom seen to venture inside his doghouse, except to retrieve something, or retrieve his recorder to play the national anthem of America every night before he goes to sleep (memories as recalled from the cartoon).

Woodstock is the only bird that attaches himself to Snoopy. The rest of the look alike's are Woodstock's friends. In the early 60s, many migrating birds started using Snoopy's doghouse for various purposes: a rest stop during migrations, a nesting site, or a place to play cards. They simply looked at Snoopy and he understood them. Woodstock was the only one that assumed the role of Snoopy's sidekick and assistant. He's Snoopy's best friend.

Linus the best friend of Charlie Brown, also the younger brother of Lucy van Pelt and older brother of Rerun van Pelt. You might wonder why Linus always drag along a blue blanket whenever and wherever he appears, that's actually his "security blanket". He holds the blanket over his shoulder while sucking his thumb. 

Lucy She is the main bully and the older sister of Linus and Rerun. A bossy, crabby and selfish eight-year old girl, Lucy often bullies the other characters in the strip, particularly her own brother Linus and Charlie Brown. But I always think Charlie Brown has some crush on her while Charlie Brown's younger sister Sally has love interest on Linus.

Sally Brown , Charlie's younger sister and has blonde hair with a curly fringe. She wears pigtails, pink or blue polka dotted dresses with matching colored socks and she also wears white shoes with black laces. She can be stubborn at times, and is usually convinced she's right until someone proves her wrong, but she also has a good heart and a strong moral sense, just like her brother.

The Ship @ Batu Ferringhi Penang




The other day in Penang, me and gang go to Batu Ferringhi,when we decided to crash at The Ship for a Dinner,The unique thing about The Ship in Penang was the fact that the restaurant was housed in this rather huge ship unlike its other outlets in Malaysia.

Upon entering The Ship, I was pretty impressed with the decor and effort put in place to make it look like we are entering a "real" ship with the wooden settings, and round windows.

Ais Tingkap @ Jalan Tamil,Penang Chowrasta Market


In Penang, if we talk about desserts at Penang Road the attention  will be automatically diverted to the Teow Chew Cendol. There are something which not many people knows and located just a few blocks away. The cold drink which I mention is known as Ais Tingkap



<==================
A Glass Of Ais Tingkap RM1.50

The whole glass of drink may look like an ordinary rose syrup filled with shaved ice and coconut meat.

The whole glass got more basil seeds,coconut water,rose essence and a spray of secret juice which consist of more than 20 ingredients inside.

Famous Teochew Cendol @ Lebuh Keng Kwee Penang



People always say Penang is famous of its cendol, a cold drink consists of green pandan-flavored noodles (a.k.a. cendol), red beans served with shaved ais, gula Melaka (palm sugar) and coconut milk. I believe when people said this, most of the time they are referring to this stall, the one located at Lebuh Keng Kwee, an alleyway at Jalan Penang who called themselves as "Penang Road Famous Teochew Chendul".












When you walked into Lebuh Keng Kwee from the busy Jalan Penang, you would see 2 stalls selling the similar product. Don't get confused, the one on the right would be the authentic one. If you still not sure, you can always find the one with the logo as shown in the photo below, or look for the stall with Phua Chu Kang's photo taken with the stall's owner

Penang has a new attraction. It is a toy museum and it is called Ben’s Vintage Toy Museum. This museum belongs to a private owner who has amassed thousands of pieces of vintage toys from his years of dealing in antiques and curios.














As its name suggest, the collection of toys in this museum are all vintage toys from the 1940′s right through to the 1970′s. Some are one of a kind and very rare. So, for some a visit to the vintage toy museum will be like a walk down memory lane evoking memories of their childhood.



The Vintage Toy Museum is located on Lebuh Acheh which is right in the the hustle and bustle of Georgetown and highly accessible. The museum is a stone’s throw away from famous landmarks in Penang namely the Kapitan Kling Mosque and the Khoo Kongsi.
