Penang Heritage Street Art [1YA Trip]

Posing in 'my grandpa's road' loll wtf #justkidding!
*1YA that I mentioned in my title means 1 year anniversary loll*

It was actually my 2nd time visiting Penang Heritage's street art only, you know!!! As a Penangite I feel soooo shameful :( But I'm studying in KL soooo I forgive myself :P #lolllllwtf

So the first time is 1 year ago. This time I went to the street arts which I didn't went last year before. (just some of em I went again) Click here to read those street arts I went last year, together with my 3D2N Penang trip with my Uni-mates! :)

This time I won't make the same mistake like the first time again! (means I didn't really do research and spent lotsa time just to walking under the sun) So I decided to cycle around with some information in my phone along before I'm lost! 

But supposedly a friend of mine who is pro about the bicycle shop and the street arts suddenly ppk me :( So end up just me and my boyfie who came up to Penang for our 1st year anniversary celebrations <3



In case you're wondering any bicycle shop which opens early in the morning like 6am or 7am (besides those which I found online that opens after 9am wtf so lazy), there's a bicycle shop in Armenian Street (Lebuh Armenian) and it's only RM10 for the whole day until 7pm the shop close! (Maybe if you can find a cheaper and better one, comment me the location or the link please!) And they provide us the map of the street arts too!!! So thankful cause that's really useful for us :D

Those shops which I called them lazy shop (because their opening time is not everyday or after 9am pffft lazyyyy, some don't even show their opening hours in their website wtf I won't support them) cost even more expensive, and they wasted my time just to search for their shop and then NO OPEN after I found! (that time around 8am ady dafuq) 

Okay throw those sad and embarrassing moments into the sea! Back to topic.

So now let me show you the new street arts which I haven't go before on my first trip to the Heritage area :)


#1. "Reaching Up" Mural, Cannon Street (Lebuh Cannon)



What is he searching for??? :o


#2. "Children At Play", 43A Acheen Street (Lebuh Acheen) (It's inside a door which looks like someone's house inside)
Children At Play is a set of two murals in George Town, Penang. The murals are painted on the interior wall of a shophouse at 43A Acheen Street. They depict a total of five children. The paintings are deliberately child-like, as though children were involved in painting them.

That's all I went cause after a while I cycle around it started getting hot.
There are still sooo many of them you can find in Penang!! Thanks Ernest the artist :'D
It's just the map doesn't provide full list of it, and it's getting hot when we're at our last destination (some we skipped cause too far or not really nice loll)

You can simply search in Google about Penang Heritage and you'll see lotsa blogs went to different location for the street arts! :)

Companion of the day <3

Add ons: Where to go after enjoying the street arts?
The cafe we went before heading home is the 55 Cafe and Restaurant! They're famous in their 3D coffee art! They provide different kind of dishes too.
55 cafe & restaurant offers Mediterranean-inspired cuisine and tapas in an informal setting. The menu features a variety of light, tasty dishes, with daily specials depending on what's fresh at the market on that day

My Hot Chocolate with a little pig in the bath. RM15 (after added RM3 for the 3D coffee art)

Looking at him enjoying his bath

The 3D art maker guy actually said I spent too much time on taking pictures and the chocolate didn't taste that good already :( So it's not really good if you have to take a super perfect angle of the coffee! XD

Anyway, the service provided for us that time is super good! Not sure is it all time good or because there is just a table of customer at that moment. loll

Boyfie's Cappuccino with a Thumb's up bear! RM12 (after added RM3 for the 3D coffee art)
You can request for the 3D art, but it'll be an extra RM3 from the price stated in the menu :)
