I finally had the chance to visit China House cafe in Penang - and yes, it took me this long to step foot in there, which is unbelievable because I go to Penang multiple times a year. This place is famous for its decor and charm and its huge selection of cakes, and, well, I'm into cakes, so it's right up my alley.

We didn't get to spend as much time as I would have liked, as we arrived too near dinner time (we had Shah's mom's birthday dinner that night!), but I did allocate some space for a cake and some tea in my tummy - and I brought Lisa Eldridge's Face Paint book for some light reading. It was so hard choosing which cake to have but I settled on lemon poppy seed in the end, with Moroccan mint tea to go with it (weird combo? Perhaps, but I really wanted to try the mint tea).

Can't wait to go back there for more cakes!
(And maybe earlier next time too, because it was getting too dark to get good photos.)
