Francis Western Food, Pulau Tikus

I've been passing by the road on my way to town, espeically to Gurney Plaza.
It's the coffee shop at the corner at the T-Junction Traffic lights along Cantonment Road.
*Updates: Only open for dinner

Never would I thought that the western fusion food is great there.
Not until a colleague of mine told me that the cook, Francis is good.

I decided to try it.
Saw the menu, cheapest was chicken chop at Rm7.
I thought of trying something alittle special and there it is..

It comes with 2 slices of garlic bread, some coleslaw with pinepalle and two half boiled potatoes.
Chicken Cajun Rm11.50.

And... Rm13.50 Cheese chicken
There is an oven for all the baked stuff, and another area for the 'fried' stuff.
I tried the fries and it's really NOT good (maybe it wasn't Francis that was doing the frying).

Drinks were a little costly, about Rm2 per drink, but it's still affordable for me. :P

I like them because they are friendly.
I asked if it was going to be long, and they have got great customer skills telling me that, they will try their very best for the customers.
*thumbs up*

(sometimes, I would buy things from people who are nice and friendly. :P..
and that's me)

Both looks yummy. The chicken covered in cheese looks so cheezy. I guess it should be delicious!

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…
