Indulged Totally

It was my very first time trying French cuisine and the experience was superb (just that the crowd was a little boring especially with the bunch of people who does not appreciate fine dining).

As I walked into the place, we were placed in a private room with the long table nicely set up. There was some decos and 2 sofa sets.

I ordered Saumons la moutarde (Salmon with mustard sauce).

Before starting the main course, I went over for the appetizer spread. I skipped the bread and took a little of the pickles, oysters/mussles with squeezed lemon, quiche, and a little taugeh salad with capers, and freshly cut salmon.

They cleared the table and I had a sumptuous main course! The potato was green in color.

After completion, I quickly headed to the Dessert corner (at least I was being proper not to eat the dessert before the main course, unlike some of them). I loved the tiramisu and the layered cake (i dono wat was that called). The rest is history. Muffin was humongous!

It ended with a nice cuppa black coffee *i like the coffee beans.. it's just soooo thick n bitter*

Dining with the right set of cutleries is really NOT an easy task. I didnt' use anything except the fork with everything!

What I didnt' like was I could not practise my french that I've learnt in my french class 7 years ago. How SAD!!! AT least gimme a chance to say bonne appetit!

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…
