My 28mm Journey of Penang 2015

It was holiday season, labour day + wesak day replacement. This means we have to travel again. Due to budget constraint, we have chosen Penang again. However, this journey takes 10 agonizing hours on the road in order to arrive on the island. Feel like home again.

After checking in to hotel, first stop we went to a D'Cova Cafe on Lebuh Bishop. The ambient is nice, the food are fairly price, and it taste great!

Caramel Sea Salt Macchiato [RM9.50]

Carbonara DCova [RM16.90]
 Right after the food, I noticed this door opposite the cafe. It's a clich√© to fit her within the door! There is another cafe accros the street - Coffee Affairs. Sadly, we don't have a chance to visit. Definitely in our next TO-DO list.

The next day we visited the Penang Hill. We reach the ticket counter around 7++a.m. Not only the ticket price was RM3, we only waited for 30 mins for the ride. However, the sun already high up in the sky. (I was actually planning for a sunrise shot). Gotta wake up earlier next time.

 As soon as we come down from the hill, we notice the ticket counter was flooded with people already. We feel so bad for them have to queue so long for the ticket and also for the ride. We then depart to Tanjung Bungah for breakfast. However, we feel disappointed with the over-priced and poor taste of food they have served. Regardless, it remains as one of the highly rated cafe in penang. Perhaps we order the wrong food.
Half the excitement went away with the breakfast served
 At night, we have dessert at Huey & Wah cafe near Bellisa Row, Jalan Burma. We fall in love with the marshmallow cheesecake there.

 The next day, we went to Kimberley street for breakfast and I like to shoot street photography at the pasar pagi over there. At here, the 28mm seems a little bit too wide and often you are not close enough to fill the frame.

Finally we went to the Chew Jetty for the first time! It's good to see how this place have become tourist attraction and love the ambient there.

Last attempt to visit the Coffee Affairs and failed! See you next time!
