2F+ Coffee Roastery

It has been a long pending cafe on my list to visit, the 2F+ Coffee Roastery. This shop is located in Relau, closer to Free Industrial Zone. The shop is located in front of Golden Triangle, but a little bit difficult to find for a first-timer, as there are no big signboards or parking areas, and the road is rather high-traffic. The cafe has a vast space, divided into a few different areas. Unfortunately, I could not see the entire area, but I think they have over 50+ seating, probably more.  Ambience I came into the shop in lunch time of the weekday, so shop was not crowded, but still had several groups, and a few were in pretty much working mode as I was. Quiet with soft music is very good; if you are alone, you probably notice the road noise from the street right infront of the shop. This may be different at the weekend, where I expect more customers chattering if it is in the evening or the weekend. Taste of the day I rarely take food, but I ordered Thai Basil Pork Rice (RM 19.90) with Ice Lemongrass Lemon Tea (RM18.00) today. There was a set discount of RM3.00 on the receipt, assuming it was for a lunch discount. Pork rice looks a little different from the picture on the menu but in a good way! The amount and flavour of the Thai Basil were just right, and the portion was also just right for me! (Some youngsters may find a little small in volume in Penang standard) Yet, red pepper was just a little too much for my childish Japanese tongue, and I needed my lemon ice tea after the meal. After all, I had a great lunch! If I may, I wanted to add a tiny bit of salad even with an extra cost. The meal was served with some greens, as seen in the picture, but I felt I needed more, may be because my mouth was a little hot with chilli. After the meal, I also ordered Filtered Coffee with Colombia. More precisely, Colombia Cauca Finca El Paraiso Double Anaerobic Flor Lichi!  There are not many cafe in penang showing the process of the beans, and this is always a good sign that their coffee is good! Light roasted, very aromatic coffee. I think this is one coffee you should try. Correct …

Accidentally deleted the entire server!

On 5th August 2022, I accidentally deleted my server contents. This resulted in my blog being inaccessible, and many of my email accounts are undeliverable… Email may take a few more days to recover, and you may be delayed hearing back from me. On Sunday 7th August, I reorganised the server settings, and email transmission will resume eventually, but I have not saved my web server data. So basically, my blog data is permanently gone. What has happened I previously had a few web servers rented to organise several different websites. However, many websites were closed during the last few years, as related projects are also terminated. So I was planning to cancel some of the web hostings. This time, one of the servers I was supposed to continue comes to an annual renewal timing, but 2 of the web hosting services have been re-branded in the last few years, and I got confused with those two brands. So I accidentally cancelled the server I was supposed to continue. Just a few minutes later, I somehow realised the mistake and contacted the hosting customer services, but the clicking of the cancellation is “immediate and permanent”; therefore, I was unable to stop the cancellation process. Even my communication with the web hosting support was disrupted in the middle, as my email was also relayed on the server I cancelled!
