2010 Christmas @ Straits Quay

Straits Quay is the new landmark in Penang.
It's easy to get there, just turn right at the Island Plaza traffic lights if you were from Gurney Drive.

A lively fountain always welcoming its guests

Christmas by the sea @ Straits Quay

Beautiful architecture building

Strategically located in front of a marina, but i can't find any boat / yacht, yet ..

It has a structure looking like a rocket launching pad, maybe symbolizing Penang is being governed by DAP, a rocket party, at this point of time.

Well planned landscape with the right plants at the right place

F&B outlets are going to occupy its ground floor, direct facing the sea.
So far there are about 20-30% open for business.

We have Italian food in Bella Marino
Mediterranean Agua

Malaysian Blue Reef

If we were to put these 3 photos above together, it would sounds like: Getting a boat at the marina going to the water to get a fish (Agua in Spanish means water :)

Finnegan's Irish Pub

Asian Cheeky Duck

Another Irish pub is coming up. There would be 2 Irish pubs, 2 Italian restaurants, and 2 German bierhaus @ Straits Quay (SQ is my newly founded abbreviation for the place)

Familiar names like Pappa Rich and Starbucks are also joining the fray.

My assessment on SQ : It would be either very good or down the drain in 6 months time. The management needs to be sensitive to Penangite expectations.
Anyway, just make your plan to SQ this coming holiday season, bon appetit !!
