Great Singapore Sale - Must GO

Although it was just merely 4 days, I've spent about RM1k for food and accomodation and shopping. Last year, if I'm not mistaken, we stayed for only 3 days and all in all, I spent much lesser, probably around Rm400. The price for my accomodation was doubled since we picked Bugis area instead of Geylang. Same goes for bus ride, for the extra comfort for snoozer seat, I'd to pay some additional $$.

Of all places, I still enjoyed shopping around Bugis, Orchard and Vivocity.
Shopping is never enough. Sight seeing - mostly man made places.

The day when we arrived singapore was Wesak there. There were already tonnes of people walking around praying with joss sticks and offerings. Some were at the indian temple with the priests.

I love Bugis Junction... I realised that Singapore loves water fountains = $$?

Singapore discovery centre - nothing much to DISCOVER!!! SAME story as Malaysia!!!

While waiting for the Stupid merlion show..... i see ultraviolet.

At Merlion's head in Sentosa.. with Calsberg tower as the background. Faster take picture, as i don't think i wanna pay to enter the stupid merlion again.....

Stupid staff.. didn't take pic for us and we have to waste our time waiting for them!!!
We had 3 free 6Rs pictures. Make sure it looks good ok?

Weird shot... at clarke quay. don't understand why sister didn't want to look at the camera lens.

Singapore version of Bungee Jumping. G-Max right?

I enjoy shopping at vivocity. How to pronounce Vivo?

Esplanade from Marina Square view

The classic Merlion view from Esplanade.

Fountain of Wealth at suntec city. Supposed to go around the fountain which brings wealth.
And my slightly oversized tee.. I didn't notice that the size was huge, should have gotten the smaller size.

It's cheap though.. about SGD13.40 and in Penang, they are selling 2 for RM89.90.
Why so expensive one? Shouldn't they sell cheaper in Penang?

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).

 Our lunch spread :)

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…
