Just sometime back in Bagan

I've visited 32 Mansion, 68 Kelawai -> and now 68 Brasil, Beach Blanket Babylon and the latest visit is Bagan.!
All of their restaurants from the same group I've visited!
Lolz.. how greedy I am.!

Starter was bruchettas, but I've eaten all b4 i took a pic of that dish..
It was mushroom/cheese on top of the french baguette.

And soup of the day -> i think it was mushroom soup.

And me waiting patiently for the next course to come! My two pieces of seabass.. lying on top of the mashed potatoes and mixed vege spread with some kinda hollaindaise-like sauce.
i personally think fishes are not worth eating -> perhaps I should take chicken or steak which are harder to prepare.

And now, the belgian truffle -> it's really filled with chocolate and I think it's just too much for someone who is on a weight-loss program/diet.
Well.. i'm so blushed with their in-house red wine.
Note: It's 50% if we are there before 8pm.

Beach blanket babylon's 50% is before 9pm.
It's been a while since I last had proper dining, the last was perhaps 68 Brasil.

I really hate it, when the waiters start to introduce their specialties. It's terrible. I had to pretend $$ is not an issue. Not only that, I'm so sure that if we don't behave well, we better don't eat in their restaurants because they are talking about table manners/etiquttes, which of course, I don't have. Perhaps, I should start reading more about it, and getting myself prepared as I get older, I don't want to look a fool.

Perhaps, I still prefer fast food chain or casual restaurants where I don't have to act 'classy'.
Fine... Cheapo - you can call me that!

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…
