Well, since I am back to Penang for the weekend and decided to join the latest hype in Penang is about this newly open Charlie Brown Café which is first in Malaysia at Straits Quay which will become one of the hottest spot for F n B area. I am quite surprise that they choose to open in Penang first instead of Kuala Lumpur.

When I see many people check in this outlet, I have no clue who is Charlie Brown until I saw Snoopy in it. I guess we do know who is Snoopy since when we are a kid then I google bout it and only realise that Snoopy is actually a pet of Charlie Brown, well, till date I still called it Snoopy Café which I felt more suitable for it. 😀

Charlie Brown (1)

it was Monday for public holiday, many people throng Straits Quey for a family gateway or tea with friends.

Charlie Brown Cafe which is easily to be found as they are located directly above Papa Rich as once you take the escalator up here, you will see alot of flashes and once you are up you will be greet with lots of Charlie Brown n gang on the wall . .

The whole place is decorated with Charlie Brown n gang that many pictures you can be seen right like the comic feel.

Big and spacious place for you to hang out.

and there are 2 counters for you to line up to place your order, as they do not have menu on the wall something like Starbucks, their menu is a booklet menu place right beside the cashier, while waiting you can just pick it up and look at it where by it will cause the long queue because not many people notice on that.

It was quite okay, as in the chiller, they offer cakes of the day, and cashier was very friendly to introduce what they have for the day and what is their signature, I would say, she over promote the cakes but good efford. 🙂

You can be also seated right at this sofa area that can enjoy the view of the harbour  .. . .

Moost of their table are decorated with different Charlie Brown Character.

One of the most interesting thing is, I love their menu, as they do it in Comic Style. . .

Charlie Brown (22)

and their cake section, with all the colourful design of cake that filled with individual character.

So what I say the cashier promote this Blueberry Cheese Cake as I find it very tempting also, as honestly, its just the look only. The cake tasted so so with too much sponge cake in it and the cheese taste is not impressive yet the taste of it was spoilt by the solid glitter candy which is too sweet that overpower the taste of the cheeze and blueberry. RM 9 (if not mistaken)

Here comes my ‘Mocha’ that turns out to be not bad, as I didnt expect it to be good as usually this kind of cafe do not serve good coffee. Just that the milk is burn, that makes it too hot to sip . . RM 11 ( if not mistaken)

Charlie Brown (26)

This is one of their signature drink, as I cannot really remember the name of it as its more like a Oreo drink, I would say I have tasted much better ones. RM13.90 (If not mistaken)

Well, I do heard feedback from my friend saying that their food did not impress and I would say that, if you love camwhore and taking pictures, this would definately a place to come by and enjoy. For Food and drinks, I have no comment as with the price I am paying, I certainly can find much better one.

– I forgot to take my receipt and price n name is just base on my agak agak memory .. .

After our quick dinner at Maha House as I mention we do have a few places to visit for the night, then next we head to Kampung Gajah, bandung to take a quick tour as this place already close for the day, as my friend recommend one of the places to visit during day time. Then I google up what this place have to offer as it is more like a friends and family gateway to enjoy their activities such as Flying Fox, Swing and Swing, and of course some restaurants. For more info can check out at their website : KampungGajah

Just spend a few minutes to take a quick snapshot then we heading to Kampung Daun which is Highly Recommended by me if you do visit Bandung. A place that filled with very classic traditional filled with their culture ambiance that located right in the middle of the forest that had transform to a perfect dining area.

As we walked further up at this chill and fresh environment with the sound of waterfall flowing, we feel so fresh and relax. . .

Another type of dining area which is more casual that be seated on a ‘rattan’ style with pillow to support. . .

daun (7)

With the natural water flowing from the top of the hill, they had make it as the heart of the restaurant as hut or dining area can hear the sound of it. . .

After spending 1 hour at this cozy place, its time for us to get even more relax as we were brought to this Hot Natural Hot Spring at 11pm at night and the weather around the area is around 21degree which is just perfect to dip in this warm pool.

There are 2 pool which is 1 about room temperature and the other pool which is warmer.

Do bear in mind that to come to this place, will need to bring your own clothing, trunks or swimwear, and of course towel, if not to purchase there, its extremely expensive.

Soaking ourselves for quite a while and on the way heading back, they introduce us a place which is nice for satay especially the meat is ‘Rabbit’

I have always miss the satay in Indonesia as their peanut sauce is a bit different that do add in some of sweet soy sauce and their own spicy sauce. So sad that they do not served Rabbit meat that day as it was their signature if not mistaken, then ordered mutton and beef. It was good too, as it was just bbq as it is.

Their ‘Jagung Bakar’ is always better then our local Malaysia version as they do season it a while in milk + their own sauce then spread with heavy butter and leave it a while there till the butter soak into the corn till its very aromatic .

It was quite a tiring journey as in a short span from 7.30pm – 1.30am we went to 4 places and the journey in between is not near. . .
