00:00, China House

China House, finally. 

Such a shame to claimed that my mother is from Penang and I have to go back to Penang every holiday when I was young but I never visited China House before. Or maybe China House wasn't China House before. lol. But anyway, I really love this place!

Meet up with my friend at E & O Hotel, she fetch me from there because earlier that day I attended a wedding banquet at the hotel and my parents left with the car. Besides, even if you give me the car, I don't think I know the road in Penang, they are so confusing!!! Lotsa buildings refurbished and road changed to single direction, if I overshoot, I have to make a big turn to get back to the same junction again, which I don't really guarantee I know how to go back to the same junction. lol.

But anyway, thanks to my friend Chrysanra who come to fetch me even though I know she was tired after finished her work at 10pm. Poor girl work so hard. Thank you so much for bringing me to China House, and introduce to me all the specialty of that place. It's been 10 years since I last saw her, we never meet up after graduate, honestly she didn't change a bit! Still the same old pretty and kind girl that I knew. Glad that time treated her with kindness and the world didn't pollute her kind soul for a bit.

We walked straight to the back (or front, depends on which entrance you're at) and there are tons of people singing and dancing to the live band performance. The place is so happening, too bad we're not in the mood for party, but for a quiet place to chit chat and catch up with each other as much as we could in a limited time. Chrysanra showed me around, first, we stopby at the upper floor of China House, which looks like a lounge area with cozy sofas and a pool table. So comfortable looking!

And wall painting everywhere!!!

and I love this most:

Yes, I am. 

There are different sections and interiors that caters for different kind of gatherings, people and needs. Al Fresco, Bar & Lounge, Reading, Wine Room, big groups of people can choose to sit in the 14 Chairs section, drawing section etc. Each and every section is unique, and I would love to try them all.

In conjunction of Chinese New Year!
Looks like a wishing tree. We even saw big mangoes hanging on the tree, waiting to be ripe.

Red red!!!

We choose to sit at the drawing section but have absolutely no intention of drawing at all. Busy talking and talking and talking until the café closes. Ordered Iced Mocha, Cappuccino and Chocolate Almond Dates Cake, the cake tastes good, I like it. Didn't really have enough time to sink into the atmosphere of the wonderful China House this time, definitely going to take more time and discover the wonder of it on my next visit.

So happy to get to see you again after all these years.

and also, see you soon again China House Penang!
