One of the reasons that Penang has been attracting tourists is due to its preserved heritage culture and since then, many cafes sprung out with their very own unique classic places that offer customers a heritage feel of it. You can find such ambiance at one of the famous street in Gerogetown, Penang - Muntri Street.
MoonTree 47 is located at No. 47 Muntri Street which is a vintage cum guesthouse, and i fell in love with its rustic furnishing the moment i stepped in. I love how different spaces were carved out for different groups of customers and of course, all the vintage decorations and paraphernalia. I spotted stuffs from my childhood that I can no longer find in modern Singapore, and for a moment, nostalgia washed over me. The food and coffee’s pretty good here – It’s a perfect place to rest your legs after hours of walking on the streets, or simply enjoy a quiet afternoon read. Hold your breath deeply and we shall escape from the hustle and bustle of the city now.
如果你曾经来槟城喬治市却没有到过这家咖啡馆, 那你算落伍了哦! 若你到过这里就一定会告诉你自己我下次一定会再来, 因为这里实在太舒服了. 细腻地呈现出槟城人的生活记忆空间的装潢, 展现自然绿意与乐活气氛的《MoonTree 47》. 每个人一踏入咖啡馆, 第一个湧上心头的问号, 就是咖啡馆的名字从何来? MoonTree 是 Muntri 路的谐音, 47 就是门牌号码.
一踏进 Moontree 47, 感觉仿佛回到了旧时代. 店里的墙上挂满了老照片, 琳琅满目的老茶具, 旧家私, 以及饼干铁桶制成的灯饰, 使空气中散发着浓浓的复古味.
The concept for Moontree 47 is a combination of homestay + cafe + art gallery. The design is more to nostalgic concept but provide a romantic environment and old feel of Penang Island.
老屋翻新, 不稀奇, 一点都不稀奇了.
槟城南华医院街 Muntri Street 是乔治市最美丽的老房子聚集地之一. 老街上的老屋一间接一间变貌. 修整之后的老屋, 把新的人引进来, 把旧的味道焕发至更深层. 街上的面貌, 是一路上美丽的 cafes, 不同个性的精品酒店, 民宿和客栈. 旧的容颜, 是百年守望的宗祠会馆, 武馆和中医学院. 新旧交汇, 不矫饰不造作, 融和得浑然天成, 没有辜负它位在世界文化遗产古蹟核心区的条件.
MoonTree 47 月树卖咖啡售轻食, 设早午餐.
躺在 60 年代的沙发上, 听黑胶唱片, 喝一杯意大利咖啡, 咬一口三文治, 啜一杯冰饮, 不要你怀旧, 只要你品味, 感受这条老街的味道.
Once you walk into the cafe, you will feel that you have travel back time, to the era of 70’s.
缓缓步入这栋老楼房, 我以为走入了电影的场景, 又好像是光倒流. 每个角落的景色都有它独特的味道, 这样别致的摆设, 都是用别人丢弃的东西组成, 或用旧木材组合, 就连吊灯, 都是用铁罐改制形成的, 也别有一番风味, 咖啡馆的每个部分, 几乎都让人回味无穷. 在这么一个每一分每一秒都在传递支持环保爱地球设计概念的小店, 人总是不自觉地就走入了慢活的步伐, 停下脚步感受咖啡馆的气氛.
There is a retail shop at the entrance before you reach the cafe area, and apart from buying pretty and vintage items or gifts for your friends, you can also purchase postcards, personalize it with the uniquely Penang rubber stamps provided at the shop, stick on stamps and drop them into the bright red postbox at the front of the shop. The postman would collect the postcards once a week and deliver them.
The imperfectly beautiful vintage shots on the wall and the utensils displayed, showing much the colours of living history in Penang.
Sometimes, beauty simply comes in numerous form. And yet, undefined.
旧式的老屋子都是长形的, 房子中间还有一处美丽的天井, 种满绿色植物, 给人一种放松心情的愉悦感觉.
The beautifully restored shop house has so much of its original charm. The decor seemed so vintage meets jungle with lots of vintage treasures around the cafe, including some are for sale. The courtyard has a fish pond and is filled with lots of lush greenery to create a relaxing place for a bite to eat or a coffee.
来 Moontri 47喝咖啡, 你不仅能品尝到好咖啡, 还能体会空气中散发着的怀旧气息, 欣赏店内陈设品, 看着墙上人们曾经发生的故事, 满足视觉上的享受.
Wandered around the backyard. To me, it's like back to the kindergarten where kids cooked cheerfully with colorful stuff. What a piece of memory.
里头的装置也充满创意. 客人用的小桌小凳, 是找来旧木板自己动手做. 这些细节和趣味成了 MoonTree 47 吸引人的条件.
我好喜欢这个小 lorong, 很有 kampung feel.
外头炎热的说, 想不到进入屋内却感到一阵凉意. 咖啡坊佈置采用中西合壁的复古家具, 坐在走廊的西式复古傢倶, 有如身在70年代的西式咖啡坊. 而坐在中庭的中式复古傢倶, 微妙地有如身在 70 年代的中式茶记.
If you are looking for a very old classic ambiance, this is certainly one of the cafes to sink in, to read newspaper, to chill for afternoon tea session. Believe it or not, it's really like an oasis amidst the hot weather in Penang!
待在月树旧屋子里并不会感觉到热, 但外头闷得很. 其实斜对面的那家外装像典雅的英式洋房, 但是望进去感觉设计太现代又摩登, 想要待在有历史典雅的空间里, 这里是旧时光, 如果窝在那个刻意营造的现代氛围, 好像又跳回那个忙碌的人生, 似乎无法放松.
这屋子以老旧见称, 经历过岁月的洗礼, 见证过历史的变迁, 也换过不少主人家. 屋子里如今还保留着前人曾经用过的东西, 许多曾经住过这老屋的人, 如今也纷纷会想要回来寻找昔日的回忆.
