Day 1: Love Lane, Penang

Yes yes yes finally I finished my final exam. I have plenty of time to blogging now. about my Day1 in Love Lane now. But I have to warn you first, this is an extremely wordy post so please be tolerate and be patient!! Have you been to @Love Lane, Penang? There is no complete agreement as to how Love Lane got its name, but I believe there's must be a romantic love story behind? (*Drama Queen has her paranoid again lolll). And it actually runs from Farquhar street, through Muntri street to Chulia street. You can see a lot of boutique heritage hotels, Penang art gallery, coffee shops, and it reflects multicultural in Penang. I personally love heritage and historical building, so I went there to discover some coffee shops and walked around with my boyfie.

So the first station, we passed by Micke's place when we were trying to find Behind 50 cafe so we decided to stop there. It is a very small coffee shop but the designs captured my attention and homey. They have very limited tables, only 6 available inside and the walls are full of memorable messages which left by the visitors. Besides, the menu was written on the board as decoration.  How good if I can have a coffee shop like this, my dreammmm :( Anyway the coffee shop located in a quite hiding corner, so you will probably miss out this great place. 

Limited space but homey.

"Are you a tourist here?"
"Oh no, we are local :)"
"I see. Boy next time try our Western dishes if you pay us a visit again! Dlicious"

I assumed the woman who talked to us is the shop owner. She is a very nice person and friendly, she could not have done more for us. She made a recommendation which were all delicious, I promised i will definitely come back again. The price is reasonable and affordable! 

"Hello behave, don't act cute"

Address: First shop in Love Lane
At the left corner and right behind a 7-11

After we left Micke's place, we just walked through the street and I spotted @41 Living story. I felt a surge of excited and lucky. Excited because I spotted something again and lucky because the shop is quite new, they just opened 2 months ago! It is an art+performing studio and came out with the concept of, a home space for art and music. It is free entrance and you can just visit their studio, and exhibition of traditional goldsmith workshop, that's amazing. Excited again lolll.  Anyway they located at 41, Love Lane, 10200 Georgetown Penang. 

Madly in love with all the boxes design @@

Guess what I found? Something good...... hahahaha
I should get him one, so he'll give me some pocket money to shop.. perhaps? :P

Way to the studio

What's inside the box?
"After you grow old, if ever life seems to bring you down, take out the little box and gaze upon it"

I'll choose a boring way to express, cry and sleep!

The Living Memory 

The living memory impressed me. If you ever have something to disremember, you can jot down on the paper in the bottle, it will slip your mind temporarily. I have something that I wish to forget, maybe next time I will come alone without boyf and jot it down?

OR you have any missing memories?
Something that you've lost forever?

What a beautiful place here :)

The environment make me feel like taking a course here! Art? Noooo not my type, I will definitely spoil everything and I have no talent in arts. Maybe music? Yeaa they provide music and art class as well which is 4 lessons in a month, including guitar, ukulele, art painting and clay. I will consider, seriously. I saw a beautiful painting that was so impressed me, "a cat and a women". The picture has alot of emotion painted on it, it look realistic and stand out from the others. Besides, the texture of the painting looks solid. Ughhhhh I really love that art painting so much, I cant tell you how good it is :( Hopefully, the drawing is still there when I pay the next visit!

41 Living Store address:

Too exhausted to say, use type -.-
Behind 50, closed!!!! ughhhhhh

And the last destination for today, Camera Museum. I realized the cafe that I initially planned to go- Moontree47 was just next to the Camera Museum. But very ridiculous, they don't allowed my camera Idk why so I cancelled it. And the man who talked to me was kinda rude, he just stopped my phone and said: "No Camera" instead of using " please"??-.- 

So I went to visit the Camera Museum, surprisingly inside have a coffee shop too. The museum is full with an old style smell of cool vintage camera and art gallery. (Google) I was stunned again when I saw the art painting, oh my god......... I love art paintings, you can see each stories behind the photos and understand what's the author is trying to tell us, truly spectacular! Moreover, they sell souvenirs such as T-shirt, small camera and etc! I am a camera fanatic.......!! I start to regret I din buy anything :9

Looks professional uh?

This is pretty cool @@

No photos are allowed in the Camera Museum, so I am sorry I have nothing to show now.
