Tiger Street Football is a fast-paced game consisting of two 6-minute halves and a 2-minute halftime period which promises to be an adrenaline-filled game for players. Played in a unique oval cage with no sidelines, Tiger Street Football requires a high level of skill, flair and control, as the enclosed playing field does not accommodate high arching passes or long balls, which are essential in association football. Taking things up a notch, Tiger Street Football adds an interesting element to the game by surrounding the playing field with a solid lower parameter, which allows players to deflect the ball off the side walls to pass and score. Perhaps the toughest rule of all is that Tiger Street Football only allows one player from the defending team to enter the penalty area, failing which the opposing team will be given a penalty.

Guess what? We got an opportunity to meet one of the football star whom is Tiger Street Football Ambassador Edgar Davids, who has 74 international caps to his name and has played for the likes of AFC Ajax, AC Milan, Juventus, FC Barcelona, Inter Milan and Tottenham Hotspur believes street football is the ultimate test for footballers as the high speed game requires the highest degree of skills and precision unlike 11 a-side football.

Then we chill out with some Tiger for the night.


With how many restaurant owners have taken advantage of the awarded pre-war town house renovate it into a classic and cozy dining place. Most of these restaurants are not big but pretty much small and cater for your needs. Soul Kitchen Trattoria  menu surely would not be extensive yet is simple cooking to make it a comfy dining experience.

On my last trip to Penang, after a full day of street photography, its time for us to head to this classic Italian restaurant Soul Kitchen Trattoria being operate by lovely and very friendly German – Malaysian couple. The place is certainly not huge with our booking of 12 pax, we manage to book the whole indoor area.

They do not have specific menu with most of their food menu are written in two big wooden blackboard on the wall besides that, a small piece of board are place on the floor with their daily specials. When we saw the menu, I told Ken like, I think we are going to order 80% of what is on the menu.

As I mention the restaurant is not big, we operate the whole indoor area and it is highly recommended you make a reservation before you coming to this place. As for the night, it was fully booked. there are alot of walk in customer and they turn away dissapointed.
