Uncle Tetsu Cheesecake – Summerton, Bayan Baru

This is the second time I’m having Uncle Tetsu Cheesecake and it’s pretty awesome, as usual. Cheesecake lovers will definitely be in love with the soft, creamy, spongy and delicious cheesecake that they offer. This is located at Summerton, Bayan Baru – the hip place located nearby Queensbay mall. This is also the very first store when they decided to open up the operation in Penang island (first in Malaysia being in 1-Utama in October 2014. Please correct me if I’m wrong).

Usually it will be an extremely long queue, and their Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) would be

  1. Queue up
  2. Order, pay and get your receipt
  3. Come back after 1 hour to collect your cheesecake

Sometimes, you will be able to just walk in (probably at those odd hours like tea time, before dinner time, and etc.) and order it right from the counter – like how I did for my previous 2 experiences with Uncle Tetsu Cheesecake. Usually, I’ll be swinging by Uncle Tetsu cheesecake shop at 5PM, and order it right away. And there you go, beautiful delicious cheesecake right in front of me. Ha-ha.

Signature Japanese Cotton Cheesecake (RM21 each) is always the main choice that I’m heading for. Currently they do provide chocolate flavor. Haven’t try that out yet, probably next time. For those stay in town (Georgetown area or further up), worry not. I heard that they had opened up a new franchise at Gurney Plaza (ground floor if not mistaken). Go satisfy your crave for cheesecakes!

Miss Universe announcement by Steve Harvey

Wow. Just wow. That was a horrible, terrible, unforgivable mistake, man. But good thing is that everyone get to know that Miss Universe competition was held lately. Ha-ha. I do wonder if this whole blunder is staged or not.

Miss Universe 2015 had just concluded with such a huge blunder. Steve Harvey, the host for the event, mistakenly crowning Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez-Arévalo, as the winner of the 2015 beauty pageant.

‘I have to apologize’. 4 words, uttered from Harvey, that cost Miss Colombia’s smile from her face. ‘The first runner-up is Colombia. Miss Universe 2015 is Philippines,’ Harvey said.

Miss Universe Steve HarveyHold on guys.. I made a mistake..

Anyway, blunder aside. Congrats to Miss Philippines, Pia Alonzo Wurztbach for winning the biggest beauty pageant in the world.

Miss Universe Miss Colombia Miss PhilippinesThe 2 minutes of fame ended for Miss Colombia, and the ultimate fame started for Miss Philippines.

Even the President of Colombia had stepped up and say something.

Coffeesmith @ Summerton, Bayan Baru – Roasted Almond Latte

To date, I think there’s more than 100 cafés in Penang. To try them all, wow, that’s gonna increase my caffeine tolerance to the max. And it ain’t cheap as well (nowadays a cup of latte will easily cost you RM10 and above). Among most of the cafés that I’ve tried in Bayan Lepas, Penang area, I found Coffeesmith provides pretty good coffee. Had a cup of Roasted Almond Latte (RM11.65 inclusive of GST) today and it’s pretty tasty. The aroma, the smoothness of the latte. And not to mention the art on top of it, exquisite.

So far, I only know 2 branches of Coffeesmith. One at Summerton, nearby Queensbay and one more at Persiaran Karpal Singh. The one I tried several times now is at Summerton.
