Free WiFi at Starbucks

Honest speaking, it was my first time bringing my laptop to Starbucks.
I tried accessing Coffee bean's Airzed with an IPAQ but never Starbucks.
I never thought it was necessary to use it since I've got Streamyx broadband connection at home.

Since my friend wanted to show me her vacation pics, thus, I decided to bring along my "brick" while enjoying our Frappucino (Ehh.. not cheap... Rm15 for a cuppa Venti).

Earlier in the afternoon, I asked some friends if they have any idea connecting to the wireless.
Do we need a timezone account and blah blah blah......... oh well.. for this outlet, it's an unsecured network.... so what I did was refresh network list and VOILA.. I was ONLINE!! Hooray!

Steps getting online in starbucks
1. Turn on your laptop - preferably, choose a spot with power supply
2. Turn on wireless
3. Refresh network list
4. Connect to "Timezone" (it was unsecured network, thus Passkey was not required)
5. Internet Explorer will be launched automatically
6. Start surfing and start launching all your IMs!

Besides drinking and getting online and looking at pics, we took pics and instanteously view it from the laptop (cool huh). There were many groups of people with laptops and I saw a group receiving 'summon' (wedding invitations).

Hm.. I learnt to babysit a baby boy...... Cute or not? I've not learnt how to carry the baby and I was soo soo afraid that he'd cry.. :(

hAHa.. just look at our multi-colored tee shirts! It's just sooo amazing.. :)

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…
