Before the getaway to Penang , I thought Penang would be a boring , small and rural area but I was terribly wrong! Despite all the bad things that have been happening in Penang example the Second Penang bridge collapsed , the bad storm and also the telecommunication tower that toppled down and killed 2 person in the worst way possible , We still drove all the way to Penang and spent 3 days 2 night there :)
The Location of this hotel is really good too! you can walk to the Graffiti street , the Jetty area and all the nice food are nearby :) throughout this whole trip we walked a lot!
Alright I'm done talking about this hotel I should show you some pictures of it!
Next Stop Joo Hooi Cafe! in case you don't know where it is , here's the address :)
Lebuh Keng Kwee (just off Penang Rd), Penang
475 Jalan Penang
It's only about 10 minutes walk from our hotel! so we walked there and on our way there , we found something interesting , something you never thought would still exist and something you will hardly see in Kuala Lumpur ! *Drum Rolls* it's this signboard they actually have drawings on it! amazing right nowadays people hardly use picture figurines like this , they usually use cute cartoons , hot models or just a signboard with no pictures on it !
Here we are at Joo Hooi Cafe to try their famous Cendol , Asam Laksa and Char Kuey Tiao !
another image of my asam laksa!
PS:If you're gonna go food hunting don't take the short cut and try to go to gurney drive it ain't gonna work ! Ya have to find someone that knows which small cafe at which back alley is good! XD
Next we went to the Graffiti street and just when i thought this would be in one specific location with all the paintings on the wall it turns out all the paintings are actually scattered around the whole place and you have to go search for every one of it :) It was a great exercise i would say walking round in circles to take pictures with all of the paintings!
These can all be found on Armenian Street better known as Lebuh armenian !
Now for the Real Famous paintings that you have to search high and low for!
This motorcycle painting can be found on Lebuh Ah Quee :)
BTW i love how they use metal to make these cartoons with words on it , it's usually about a story and i enjoyed reading them along our way to the other paintings! This cartoon actually tell people the reason why the street is name Ah Quee it's because this one rich man donated most of his properties and money to the English people just to make sure his name will be sort of remembered forever .
You can find this along Lebuh Armenian that intersects with Lebuh Pantai :) Further down along the same street you will see another Cat painting! This artist really like the MEOWS :)
Wow this is getting too long i guess i should stop right about here ! please do stay tuned for the second half of my journey :) there's will be more good places I would recommend and pictures to come!
This is just half of the graffiti street there is still 1/2 of it :) Stay tuned!
