[PENANG]: The Memory Lane Mufe; Retroactive Museum & Cafe

Its always good to be home. Home means, so much of cafe hunting or perhaps exploring new cozy places for a gathering with friends and family. Stumbled on a nostalgic cafe which brings back much “back then” memories.

Back then, sundry shops look like this, where there are comic stands, biscuits and all other things which you can find in a small, compact shop.

The Memory Lane Mufe is a Retroactive Museum & Cafe, where you can dine in for a cup of kopi with toast and with a Retroactive Museum. It will cost RM5 per pax and here are some of the pictures to share.

Bet these are instagram worthy kinda pictures.  Well, if you are not afraid of the heat, you can always opt to sit outdoor. It does give you the nostalgic feel too 😉

5 Kicks You’ll Get Out Of Traveloka Hotel Booking

Booking hotels can be a huge hassle, from filtering for a reasonable price, to a strategic location, to a decent hotel to call home for a couple days. “Home away from home” fits in seamlessly when we can book a hotel online best with no physical interaction!

The million-dollar question arises when you are left with limited time to source for cheap hotels. Looking for hotels aren’t at all an easy task when it’s the first time visiting the place. Knowing not what to expect as pictures online can be deceiving and disappointing at the same time. To ease and cope with day to day life, Traveloka comes handy when you can conveniently conduct your hotel-hunt much easier than expected as it contains reviews and hotels are easy-to-book.

  1. Hotels are everywhere

Planning a trip? Well, we should do all the fundamental work; mainly hotel and flights, best when both comes cheap. This can be pretty taxing. Having said that, Traveloka will come handy as a one-stop-center dominating the Southeast Asia network for serving flight routes and hotel accommodations. With Traveloka, you will be able to find thousands of hotels available in a single destination furnished with short reviews and pictures of the insides of the rooms on each hotel complete with list of utilities and services offered by every hotel you can find near where you will be visiting. Importantly, the access to the exact price of the offers to avoid any hidden charges or charges which you may not be aware of prior to reservation. This is one of the key information which many other hotel booking sites deprive of.

2. What you see is what you will get

Its when “pictures are for illustration purposes only”. This is the point when you are unsure of what a hotel is or will be offering. Traveloka will play its part here. All the items listed mainly on hotel facilities and amenities in the respective hotels will be what you have opt for. Certain hotels provide breakfast meal while others do not. Certain hotels provide extra bed or pillows for free while others can be provided based on terms and condition or additional charges. Certain hotels contain private beaches while others would have to settle with public beaches several walks or drives ahead. These differences are sometimes left out from the customer’s knowledge by omitting it from the information details.

  1. Varieties make the world go round

We love options, be it a different kind of mix from price to location to amenities of a hotel offers. Traveloka fits in when it takes charge of your preference, by suiting your travel needs. Traveloka provides a wide range of varieties; need a gym or swimming pool to burn some calories after stuffing tons of food from the trip? Having the pool overseeing the sunset by the beachside? Traveloka helps in taking into consideration of the different traits each person is and the expectation of the traveler.

Want to spend some lone time finding peach in yourself? The wide varieties provided by Traveloka give you a chance to go for one that suits your preferences.

  1. Cheap stay, top class services

Cheaper can be better because you will never know what you pay for until you step your feet at the hotel. Mainstream mindset will tell us that there will not be top class services which comes with a cheap price. However, cheap prices that comes with top class services exists! All you need to do is spend a little time putting on your scouting hat to hunt as Traveloka provides one of the cheapest hotels.

Besides the best hotel deals Traveloka offers, it also comes with top-notch services at amazingly cheap prices. You have to gear up to hunt for the deals. Well, Traveloka offers deals for hotels, what is a trip without good deals for cheap flight ticket (eg Malaysia Airlines tickets) ? Yup, Traveloka is up for it too.

  1. Simple, safe and secure

Booking with Traveloka is straightforward. The plain manner process is guides you to search for the relevant hotels and its offers. Topping up to that, Traveloka is diligent in maintaining the security system for all their site transactions and data transmission purposes. Feel safe using Traveloka!
