Discovery Trip

Guess I'm back to my old-self, being the an inconsistent blogger.
Probably, I've nothing to update or nothing much to say... or rather, i don't want to say it here.

Singapore was truly an eventful trip. A discovery trip.
(ya, rite. i went to the Singapore Discover Centre and it was closed!!!)

Few encounters that i truly enjoyed:
1) Taking bus trips
- to SDC
- to Singapore Science Centre
- to Sentosa

2) Going to their local supermarkets and shopping malls
- like Fair price
- getting cheap tee-shirts (Giordano for SGD5)
- seeing Ben&Jerry ice cream everywhere
- cheaper Dorothy Perkins products

3) Looking at Geylang chics
- i get to see many, many china call girls as well as the transvestites!
- a real eye opener!! i've not seen so many, and at the same time enjoying the food

4) Tasted their food
- toasted kaya bread - hm.. not bad! but quite costly SGD1.60 for 2 slices
- tasted their kopi-O - exactly the same as in malaysia
- BUrger King bacon and turkey ham - quite rich.. something we can't find in BK in malaysia
- Beef Koay teow - just like our wat tan hor
- Prawn mee - Penang is still the best!

5) Walking around town
- imagine from city hall to suntec city to Marina square to esplanade to chinatown.....
- clarke quay to boat quay to raffles city...!!
- orchard road sommerset to orchard station!!
- phew! that's crazie.. poor legs.

6) attended Church
- sigh. i was in the overflow room cause I was not 'early'

What's the Difference between 'Net' and "Nett"

Since it's part of my group's job to publish daily billings report to the management, our Director (from US) pinpointed that we should fix the spelling of 'nett billings' to 'net billings'.
My colleauge was looking at google, trying to understand the 'right' spelling to be used.

I finally checked it from Wikipedia, and found that 'nett' is BRITISH and 'net' is AMERICAN.
No wonder he's offended to fix it to 'net'!
C'mon. I'm in an american MNC, I should be more sensitive towards this.

Nyonya Willow is now at Arena Curve

Penang is indeed a food haven, where both tourists and locals are blessed with many good foods. When it comes to Peranakan or rather, Nyonya food, we could never forget Penang..... aside from Malacca and Singapore.

Nyonya Willow used to be located in a home at Sungai Tiram but now it's currently moved to Arena Curve. Getting there is a little tricky as the parking space around Olive Tree hotel is usually full, thus I'd recommend to park inside the Arena curve where the entrance is situated opposite d'piazza.  I personally find that it's now situated in a more strategic place, as it's easily accessible and nearer to my work place.

As it was on a usual weekday lunch, we ordered a few dishes like jiu hu char (RM14) , lor bak (RM16), kapitan chicken (RM16), pork leg vinegar (RM18), perut ikan (RM18) and babi ponteh (RM16). I'd recommend the kapitan chicken and perut ikan, as well as their gulai tumis (I tried it earlier in my previous visit).

Traveling to the Southern Thailand Border - Dannok

It's been a while since I've gotten my passport stamped, thus, I thought I could do a day trip at the southern Thailand border. Being a frequent traveler to Thailand, I've always booked a van service to take me to the border. This time, it's really my first time trying out going to the border by foot.

It wasn't a good day for me as I forgotten to bring my umbrella.
Thus, I bought a not-so-nice one that day.
Moreover exchange rate is really bad. It's like 8.30 rate.
Then, I didn't know how to get the immigration form. So i chose the easier way to go to the shop and get it printed out (I later found out from my next trip that i can walk into the office to get one)

I started my walk along the shops to take a look at clothes, food, and also I bought a floor mat (funny, i thought it was nice). Also, not forgetting 7-11 for the cold drinks.
The weather was really crazy that I stopped at McD for free wifi and aircon, and the samurai pork burger.

 Seriously, tahpau…
