2F+ Coffee Cafe by Yellow House, Penang

This cafe is easily missed and hidden behind the foliage of creeping money plants. Besides hidden behind the green natural curtain, the location isn't suitable for a cafe. Its neighbors are old furniture shops, mechanic workshops, renovation shops, etc. Because of these subtle aspects, it quickly became a hidden gem in the Relau area.

Location: Jalan Paya Terubung, 11900 Bayan Lepas, Pulau Pinang (scroll down below for parking tips)Business hour: 10:00AM - 10:30PM (Closed on Mondays)
Price: Approximately RM10 for coffee, RM30 for a meal

The Tokyo Milk Cheese Factory in Penang

One of my bucket list to tick when coming back to Penang is to have the Tokyo Milk Cheese Factory ice cream. I’m a big fan of cheese ice cream and the Tokyo Milk Cheese cookie. It’s the holy grail souvenir from Tokyo that I ask for if anyone ever visit the city. Upon hearing that the company is opening a standalone stall in Penang, I was overjoyed.

You can also find the Tokyo Milk Cheese Factory in Pavilion, Kuala Lumpur.

Location: Gurney Plaza Penang, Lot 170-B1-K34/35 (Right next to the entrance of Mercato)
Business hour: Daily, 10am-10pm
Price: Approximately RM20

Bentong 1 Day Food Trip

The idea of traveling to Pahang for a day just for food might sound tedious. But Bentong is actually an hour away from Kuala Lumpur (or less than that on days with lesser traffic). If you are planning for a longer trip, there are plenty of places to discover, such as the Chamang Waterfall. However, in this post, I'm just going to talk about food.
There are plenty of places for good food in Bentong, but for a day trip, this is as much as I can cramp in:

Penang National Park: A Hike to Turtle Beach

People always think of Penang for its food, beaches, and heritage shophouses, but do you know, a large chunk of Penang Island is covered by forest? If you drive on the road to Batu Ferringhi, you will end up at Teluk Bahang. Beyond all the glamourous resorts by the beach, there's a quiet and sleepy fishermen's village. This is where the Penang National Park starts.

The Penang National Park is frequent by the locals for their weekend nature outing and you can also find some adventurous tourists finding their ways to the most pristine beach of Penang. The National Park gives you access to three beaches that are not accessible by road. We choose to go to Pantai Kerachut (or Kerachut Beach) because the other routes were obstructed by landslide.
