Penang Digital Library (Phase 1)

What Does Penang Digital Library Look Like After Midnight?

One night we checked out the 24 hour Penang Digital Library. Going for the delish cakes at Love A Loaf was a good, valid reason too. It was about 1.30 am when we pulled up on the highway and noticed the gate closed.

We drove a bit towards the exit and found this open. This is for security measures and for late or early morning risers. Depending on how you perceive time.

“Not sleeping is an option. You don’t have to worry about getting up late,” he teased.

It’s been a long, long time since Dory studied for an exam BUT this doesn’t discount the all-nighters she pulls. Inevitably with the turf. LOL

The Penang Digital Library is open 24 Hours

I raced up. Good. No one outside. There was a table that was leaving.

It’s really so warm in the day to sit outside. I would sweat bullets and drink my Americano from a paper cup. I know, I wished for two things in the afternoon. A proper cup and saucer or a mug and air-conditioning. At 2 am it’s nice and cool. Even the lizards have gone to sleep. Now if only I could have this.

No Cakes in Penang Digital Library after Midnight!

My heart sank. The cafe is closed.

Bummer, there goes my midnight indulgence of chocolates and cake. Love a Loaf is closed. No Salted Egg Croissants and Chocolate everything. No coffee!

“You can sit anywhere you want now Dory,” he teased. I would clobber him over the head. Heartless as usual. Men!

“Since there’s nothing that would occupy my mind as in the choice of cakes and coffee selection,” I said ruefully.

“What coffee? You only drink Americano. Long Black remember?” He has this habit of interjecting.

“Ahem, and why do I bring you out at night?” I glared back.

“Body Guard,” he shot back.

We decided to check out the place and crept up the stairs. The Penang Digital Library was quiet as all good libraries should be. We read every sign and nodded to each other.

The first floor was quite empty. There are a few students studying in the corners.

Verdict: It’s a nice safe place to study. We sat at a table and whipped out our devices and checked some email before we called it a night for supper at the nearby 24 hours McDonald’s.

And Life is very good!
