Being A Pure Glutton

I was at the Penang Christmas Open House.
Since it was raining heavily, I stood beside the buffet line.

I saw some people tahpau-ing in the ice cream container.
I see some aunties getting the left over cakes and tahpau-ed in their plastic bags.
I see some uncles eating in gluttony.
I see some teenagers eating in gluttony.

I only had one plate from the MAKSAK caterers. A good portioning for myself.
I had enough.

Why didn't the public had enough?
Did they starved themselves before they come here for free food?
Many came just for the free food.
Why would they eat more than what they have?
Don't they sound like those people during Moses time asking for manna and quail?
Shouldn't they eat what is enough for them for the day?
Why did they store and keep?

Same for buffets.
Yes, we paid for it.
But that doesn't mean we should eat more than what our body can contain.
Are we destroying our own body system?
I don't think buffets are meant to be that way.

Not many people actually watched the presentation since the rain was heavy.
Why did God allow the rain?
Would it defeat the purpose/efforts if the public is not able to get the message?

There isn't anyone distributing flyers by the time I went.
It wasn't that late, probably 8pm+.
There are just too many questions running around my head that I do not have any answers.

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…
