My Very First Penang Trip - Straits Quay [Part 2]

This is a following post from My Very First Penang Trip [Part 1].

In this edition, I have posted a some pictures that I have took from Straits Quay. Some of you might not know about Straits Quay but it is something like a lifestyle mall where they have plenty of shops, place for events, stalls, residential place and etc. Located along the sea in Seri Tanjung Pinang, it is definitely one of the higher class place in Penang.

There's a lot of places to be found there where you can shop & eat.

We camwhored! :D

From left to right, Isaac, YY, myself & Ivan.

They had this food engraving competition going on that night.

Some pictures along the marina.

The scenery there reminds me of Labuan, one of the place where I grew up.

The reason why I wanted to visit this place so badly is because of one particular cafe which is located inside Straits Quay itself, the Charlie Brown Cafe. I'm sure a lot of people from Gen-X would know what is Charlie Brown and for Gen-Y peeps like myself, you might have heard about Snoopy, the pet beagle of Charlie Brown. I didn't really get to try the food or drinks at the cafe since we only have limited time to go around, hence we took some pictures of the cafe's exterior.

The Charlie Brown cafe is located at 3A-1-17 & 3A-1-18 of Straits Quay. You can contact them for inquires at 04-899 8602.

Straits Quay’s strategic location in Seri Tanjung Pinang means one thing: getting here is a breeze. Besides more traditional forms of transportation, E&O’s new water limousine service from the historical E&O Hotel presents an unforgettable way to get to Straits Quay.
