[PENANG]: Route 9, Bishop Street

Route 9 serves western dishes in the heart of Penang. They make life so much easier for the working adults especially and now being an option for diners. It is located next to Goh Kaki along Bishop Street, easily spotted too. photo DSC_0078_zps0354bb55.jpg

Hence, I would consider myself lucky for being able to visit Route 9 for dinner! photo DSC_0093_zpsb881ae48.jpg photo DSC_0048_zps69a3bece.jpg

One of the items from the menu I enjoyed most is the Chicken Chop. Its crispy and non-oily based served with mashed potato and some gravy. photo DSC_0072_zps22a9b584.jpg

At the moment, Route 9 is having set lunch on promo. There are a total of 11 choices for our 3 course set lunch served with drinks and Soup of the Day from RM10.90 [Available on weekdays from 11am till 3pm] photo DSC_0043_zps59b97e68.jpg

Tender Chicken Skewer is one of my favourite too which tastes a little like satay. photo DSC_0047_zps64c7a24b.jpg photo DSC_0045_zpsc1fd14f6.jpg

… and after such a heavy meal, I would appreciate dessert :) Affogato was served but I would say it tasted a little plain. photo DSC_0096_zps44077941.jpg photo DSC_0079_zpsdeb63b5d.jpg photo DSC_0091_zps90d945f8.jpg

As an overall, I kinda like the ambiance and its a good place to chill or for private events to be held.

Oh yes, so I was back in Penang for a week on a business trip. Many thought I was posting #throwback pictures, in fact those were real time pictures posted at that point of time. Despite the main reason I got back (which was work related), it was a meaningful trip for being able to meet half of the people on this beautiful island. LOL. I’m definitely exaggerating here but yes, I have never met so many people in my previous trips. Walking into the company is like a fashionista catwalk meet & greet session. Okay, that’s another level of exaggeration.

It was a bliss! For the first time, I felt so grateful for being able to drive to work and not complaint about the jam! Penang is a natural healer. She manages to put a smile on my face unknowingly when I was on my way to work.

Its just as pretty as always. Spent some time in the weekend to roam around by myself, something I often do back then just to spend some lone time.

Lovely sights in Penang!

 Also, I feel that you gotta risk when you live in Penang. LOL! photo IMG-20140928-WA0031_zpsef73a0a1.jpg

Of all things, I still heart this island!

P.S. Cafe

Waking up to a pleasant Sunday morning when he decided to bring me for brunch. Him being him, secretive enough not to share with me where we were heading even though I tried pestering him a couple of times.

… and so, we ended up at Dempsey Hill. Looks like he studies me thoroughly. photo 20140720_160107_zps7b2df672.jpg

I know that’s a lot which we didn’t manage to finish but to tapao. photo 20140720_150531_zps70c7a739.jpg

Someday, I wanna learn how to make egg benedict! photo 20140720_150542_zpsb0903303.jpg

Date ; the person who plant that smile on my face.

LOL. Easing my crave for fries. Truffle Shoestring Fries ($15), our favourite so far. photo PhotoGrid_1411780605431_zpsa1fdd043.jpg

… and I fell in love with the cozy cafe. photo IMG_20140720_1_zps5005a5dd.png

I really like this place for decent conversations we had. photo IMG_20140720_2_zps40a3ad70.png

[PENANG]: Dolce Dessert Cafe, Kek Chuan Road

Dolce Dessert Cafe, specializes mainly on desserts. Well, there were variety of cakes offered. Its kinda cozy and there’s outdoor and indoor seats available. Honestly, I don’t find anything fantastic and kinda pricy too.

Well, it tastes a lot like half a bottle of strawberry jam on it. photo 20140927_211812_zps4d5224b0.jpg photo 20140927_211824_zpseaf70165.jpg photo 20140927_212618_zps4d2178d2.jpg photo 20140927_214203_zpsb1f0fda5.jpg photo 20140927_214248_zpsa36d3741.jpg photo 20140927_214817_zps118c98da.jpg photo 20140927_215517_zps478a3002.jpg
