Comfortable Stay @TuneHotel

Tune Hotel is located right opposite Maju Junction Mall - I like that because Esprit's factory outlet is there.
I did not manage to take a picture of the hotel as I was rushing to check-in at 2pm. :D
Anyway, the website's front page picture is equivalent good and it's really bright that it can't be missed!

THe place is filled with Mister Potato and Maggi ads. No wonder they can make $$.
Surviving on Ads!

As soon as we touch down, we took some pics of the room before it gets all messed up.
See the bottle of water!! it's Rm2.40 and I bought a lot of those cause there is no mini bar or a place to boil water.

Decos are mostly from Ikea.. and that shelf is the only place where we can put our belongings - watches, spectacles, wallets, bags.... etc. There is no other table or place for us. Not even shoe racks or cupboards. Just some hooks to hang our jeans beside the toilet.

The King Koil queen sized bed is enough for both of us and the blanket is cozy for our 5-hour prepaid credit air con.

Nice wall with the ONE and ONLY mirror for me to wear contacts, check on my hair, wash face.
No mirrors in the toilet.
What we need to do is to OPEN the door and turn our face to the right!

The door is just out there.
Check out the flooring.
It's just gray cement.
No shampoos, no soaps, no tissue papers... luckily there are toilet rolls by the toilet bowl.
No TV, No Radio - Only one socket for u to put on ur laptop and watch DVDs.
The cost is RM80 - Plus stay, admin fee, air con fee and tax.

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…
