Edelweiss Café

Edelweiss!
Because of this name and Lilian blogged about it before, it caught my attention to go forward for further exploration. There’s a song on Edelweiss, and this song is actually The Sound of Music soundtrack. It was sung by a widower of the Trapp Family.
Anyway, let’s not talk about that Edelweiss but this Edelweiss Café. If you love antique stuff, regardless the building, furniture, iron, clock, tiffin, etc this is the right place for you. Or, if you are looking for some information on Penang Island, well, here is the place for you too.

Append below are some shots that I took from Edelweiss Café. While I was busy snapping, hubby was busy ordering food. He’s more glutton than me.In there you could see some greeneries and that really made everyone feels so environmental friendly.
When I was taking this shot, one of the guess with lots of grey hair was telling me, ‘Young lady, you should take this shot!’. I was wondering why, then, this uncle said, ‘Stand here, this is the right spot, and look up, … Yeah, this is the one of the best shot!’.
Ta da… ‘It ought to give a lesson to all the male on how to use a toilet’. That’s exactly what the uncle told me. Funny leh???It was a neither odd time for dinner nor tea time. So, hubby didn’t really order anything heavy. But he ordered this Benggali Toast. A cheese slide with some onions sprinkles on top and toast. Something nice and simple and filling too with a cup of coffee, This is one of the luxury tea time that we ever have.

More like an antique furniture & knick-knacks than a food post. Some of those pieces do 'bring' me back to my grandma's home.

Edelweiss! We just sang that at Karaoke last Saturday! Interesting, there's so much local antiques on display.

Jason, I believe the owner is an antique "fat siew yau". There are a lot more upstairs, according to his wife. She said it once, if they have the time, they will take their customer for a walk upstairs too..... :)
