Year 2008 - A year of hope

I had very funny feeling about year 2008.
I have a very fresh HOPE as compared to the previous years.
The Hope that I could feel JOY in my heart.

As I was reading Luke 23 on Jesus' Crucification, I was reading the verse again and again.
Verse 34: Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing".

In my younger days, I was very much influenced by the HKTVB cantonese kungfu fighting series. Most of it were about different groups of people fighting for fame and power. Even the GOOD ones were revengeful for the past and the presence.

But, as I started my christian walk, I slowly began to learn about FORGIVENESS and NOT To take grudges or being revengeful.

Jesus was forgiving.
Even at his last moments, he asked GOD the father to forgive the men who were crucifying him (partly because he knew that he had to go through all these sufferings to save us from our sins)

And then again.
How about us now?
Should we suffer like Jesus?

People were rude to me.
People were accusing me.
People were taking advantage of me.

Yet, I forgave them.
In fact, I have learnt not to be mad at them, for they REALLY do not know what they were doing.

Also, the part about the crucification that Jesus would take those who BELIEVES him as the Messiah to heaven. Even at the very last moment, the criminal who was crucified together with Jesus asked him to remember him into his kingdom.

If I ever had a baby girl, I would name her "FAITH".. or nickname her "FAY". It's the faith that we strongly believe in Him. And, my baby boy, maybe "Ian"... which means. God is gracious.

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…
