Cozy in a Rocket is a cafe along Armenian Street where we sought refuge from the sun after chasing the street art of Georgetown. It is decorated with so many quirky and vintage furniture that I would be hard-pressed to name my favourite piece.
I over-exposed these on my rangefinder badly, but I kind of like how dreamy they turned out. Dreamy is after all not how I would normally describe the colours of Penang.
All looking very calm on the surface, but feeling very excited and slightly distressed over the wide selection of cakes laid before us. I swear I had the best carrot cake, moist and filled with rum-soaked raisins inside, here at Chinahouse.
We also had breakfast at China House.
On our way to get dinner at the Pulau Tikus Market, we came across a mobile food stall selling peanut pancakes. Snapping pictures of a humble food stall seemed to cement our identities as tourists, and it propelled us into a conversation with a fellow customer. She revealed that this is a famous stall which has even been featured in the papers before. Well, it doesn’t take much to convince us, for we were sold the moment we saw the uncle slap generous amounts of sweet corn onto the batter.
We kept spotting works of art on our second day in Penang, after feeling slightly dejected at not running into charming ones on the first. I can’t help but notice that there were many of cats, and considering the number of pictures she took with/of them, Jessie (pictured) seemed be to especially enamoured of them.
