Caffeinated Haunts: Purrfect Cat Cafe

As the title most likely suggests, this Caffeinated Haunts installment has more cats than coffee and cakes. But, that's not a problem...right?

During my birthday trip in Penang, I accidentally discovered Purrfect Cat Cafe, which had just opened the day I arrived in the city. I’ve always wanted to visit a cat cafe so there was no question that it was going to be one of my stops!

Located in Muntri Street in George Town, Penang’s capital, Purrfect Cat Cafe is among the slew of cozy cafes, boutiques, and quirky shops that have recently opened in the historical district-slash-tourist center. Its proximity to other attractions means it’s one of your accessible options to cool down after an afternoon of strolling around George Town.

Just before you enter the cafe, you’ll be greeted by friendly staff, an enticing display of their cakes and pies for the day, and the shop name “PURRFECT” in big, white letters. Directly behind the dessert display is a small shop of adorable cat-themed clothes and trinkets. You’ll be asked to wash your hands and leave your shoes before heading upstairs, where the fuzzy, friendly felines await.

I planned my visit on my actual birthday, so I guess these are my birthday cake slices! I ordered a cold and fizzy peach drink because I just came from a long walk around George Town. Of course, I ordered a hot latte after I downed my cold drink!

Upstairs, you’ll find a small but cozy space that is of course, adorably adorned with various cat-themed decorations. You have the option to stay in the main hall or inside the playroom, where you can hang-out with around 3-4 cats. Aside from pastries, Purrfect Cat Cafe serves both cold and hot drinks just like your regular cafes. Of course, their charming cats are the stars and highlight of your visit, so I hope you’ll pardon me for both for sharing only a handful of photos — I was busy playing with the furbabies!

Played mostly with adorable Marble, who even gave me a peck on the cheek!

    LomoAmigo: Cat Stevens

    London based photographer Cat Stevens uses the softer, more subtle aesthetics of film photography throughout her work. Her shoots consist of the familiar light leaks and washed out tones that most film shooters will be familiar with. She has photographed artists such as Deerhunter, PJ Harvey and recently took a series of sun drenched beach shots which adorned The Charlatans' last album cover titled "Modern Nature."

    Nishe: Exploring Emotions Through Photography

    There's a certain air of sadness in Nishe's portraits. More often than not, the faces of her subjects are either partially or completely hidden. Sad, yes, but undeniably beautiful. Melancholia, as well as loss of innocence and the pains of growing up, are recurring themes in the photographer's body of work and she presents all these quite gracefully.

    My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. March was for caffenol. You have probably heard of the amazing fact that you can develop black and white photos with coffee, sodium, and vitamin C. I had tried this before but with less than stellar results. Somehow, there's always something going wrong. Time to devote a few rolls to caffenol to finally get the hang of it.

    Lomo LC-A 120: Quirky Doors

    In photography, we notice the surface first. The color and texture of things help us imagine what’s beneath. Doors, part of a building’s skin, have this appeal. They suggest how long a structure has been around and what sort of fellows live inside. They are details that fascinate Lomographers, judging from the many LC-A 120 snaps of intriguing entrances.

    Trusty Bags for Trusty Cameras

    We spend copious amounts of time stalking camera forums and researching specifications that "hunter" seems a more fitting term than "collector." And yet, when the time comes to pack all this game—the new or thrillingly ancient cameras—we DIY padding on the spot. (Guilty of trying to avoid the unappealing gear bag from the department store.) Last year though we stocked up on camera bags that are as cool as they are protective. Here are some of them.
