LAP-BAND System

I personally have not heard of this until I started PPP.com and tried searching in google.com
More information can be found at http://www.lapband.com/.

Oh well, I'm thankful that I'm NOT qualified for the lap-band system surgery.

Lolz. I'm glad.

Instead of doing extreme dieting and exercising or even weight loss pills, the lap-band system is offerring a better option on permanent weight loss. In a way, we would tend to gain back to our original weight if we are not controlling it well.

According to the website, the weight-loss (bariatric) surgery could actually help in several ways:

+ Restrictive—reduces the amount of food the stomach can hold but doesn’t interfere with normal digestion of food and nutrients.
+ Malabsorptive—shortens the digestive tract to limit the number of calories and nutrients that can be absorbed.
+ Combination (gastric bypass) —restricts the amount of food the stomach can hold and reduces the number of calories absorbed by altering the digestive tract.

Wow.. how they do that? I don't know honestly.

Being fat not only look ugly, but it will have many health reasons such as diabetes, high blood pressure and etc.

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…
