Gelato Ice Cream

It's been a while since the Lecka Lecka came to town and I've yet to try until last weekend.
We walked in being the first customers and the business is always slow everyday. I'm not too sure about during the night since this is a bar & restaurant, not an ice cream kiosk. They have liquor and bartender at the counter.

My first Lecka Lecka experience was in 2004 back in 1U. I didn't had lunch and was hungry and I think I grabbed tiramisu or that sort of brand in a small plastic cup.
I saw this promotion at the banner, RM9.90+ set lunch so I wanted to try so badly hoping that they would have some creativity in their cooking and presentation. The fish & chip was reasonably standard, chicken chop was humongous, and the jumbo sausage was cut into small pieces. We gave our suggestions to the chef not to chop his sausage but to present it as it is.
The dessert was little cups of Lecka Lecka Oreo and Cafe.

We wanted to try more, so we took flavours of chocolate, caribbean mix and amarena.
With only RM9.90, it came like a big chunk in a small sundae cup. The store manager (I think) was generous in scooping out the gelato.
Amarena sounded so much like macarena and it looked so much like blueberry vanilla and we were all shocked that it was ALMOND ice cream? I had durian , green tea and etc etc.. but never, ever ALMOND!! wow.... it really tasted like ALMOND.
and... guess what... the chocolate tasted like Van Houten chocolate powder.....
and mango tasted like MANGO??? hahaha.
and.. carribean mix tasted like mixture of fruits, passion fruit, pineapple and mango (I thinK!!)
I do wonder how they maintaned and preserved the taste?

They got frying pan too...

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…
