Mickey Mouse Arthouse

If Mickey was part of your childhood and you’re into art, you should definitely give Mickey Mouse Arthouse a visit that features 90 unimaginable local and international artists such as Jamie Browne, Confetti Studio, Vince Frost, Justine McAllister, Travis Price, George Rose, and plenty more in one place (Melbournecentral.com.au, 2018).

I personally experienced the exhibition and really enjoyed it 😆. Now, I may not be an expert in judging what good art is, but looking at all those creative work I never thought I could see Mickey in various form of art. It’s also somehow relatable for us who grew up with Mickey is part of our childhood with a mixture of pop arts. Your kids probably find it unusual but for my age it somehow makes sense.

Dear Dino Cafe ☕️, ideal cafe for digital nomad 💻.

We were travelling over the weekend to Penang, Malaysia to clear our heads off after a long week. But sometimes responsibility is a b**** and we had to respond to some emails, little work and so on. Of course, when you want to work remotely, you gonna need some good wifi, space and good snacks while you’re at it. Hence, that’s when we came across Dear Dino!

Interior wise, its simple, clean, aesthetics, and has a decent amount of natural lights. We are all about the lightings as well, because it helps us to stay bright and focus while working and enjoying our meals 😆. Service wise, the staff are polite and helpful, the wifi access is fast enough as well that helped us to work faster without any interruptions.

As for food, we ordered some bites for us to munch while working so we went with their, ‘Best Fries Forever (BFF)’; Criscut fries sprinkled with rock salt, and drenched with Sour Cream onion. As for drinks, other than coffees they provide various types of juices including detox and that’s what we went with- ‘A New Leaf’ juice (Green Apple, Lemon, Cucumber, Spinach, Parsley)  along with ‘Sensational Twist’ (Watermelon, Lemon, Mint). Overall, there’s nothing special about the food but it’s decent to have some bites.

If you come here just to enjoy some nice fries, juices and more, I’m sure there are much better and cheaper options out there. However, if you’re looking for some nice peaceful environment along with some decent food to enjoy or even while working then yes, include Dear Dino into your list!

Opening Hours: 10am- 11pm (Close on Tuesday). 
Where: 186 & 188, Penang Road
10000 George Town, Malaysia
