KopiTiam

When I was younger, I only had home cooked food. I never frequent fast food chains or even kopitiams. I couldn't even know the difference between curry mee or hokkien mee. To me, it's just a different name for those "curry-based" noodles.

Even KFC was a luxury for me when my mom took us for Makan.
McD was a 'never'.

When I was in secondary, with my little pocket $$, I went to Kopitiam on my own. I enjoyed a lot eating wan tan mee - even until now, I like the black soy sauced noodles a lot.

I enjoyed Happy Meal and I nearly had happy meals every week for the toy when I graduated from Secondary school. During that time, beef burget set was RM4.50. Kinda cheap compared to the value meal sets.

In uni, I get to try even more like Hartz chicken buffet, dimsum buffet and all the macam2 restaurant.

My first ever Coffee bean was in Mont Kiara
My first ever Dome was in Sunway Pyramid.
My first ever Francisco Coffee was in Putrajaya (i think)
My first ever starbucks.... erm.. erm... I DON'T REMEMBER - maybe Gurney Tower?
The frappucino used to have that special sauce.... and I liked it a lot...
My first ever Gloria Jeans maybe from Midvalley
My first swensen's in Subang Parade
My first Friday's was in Subang Parade

My first ever McD - Greenlane Mcdonalds!! It brings old memories..

Too many first times...

As time goes by, when I started working, my taste got a little big expensive.
I went all the way out to try different food outlets........
Even fine dining..

And now.. I'm getting fat.
I prefer no sugar, no oil, no salt stuff. Preferably, Daniel Fast Diet.
I love Home cooked food.
I love meimeizoe's food.

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…
