Lunch break at Bravo Italian Restaurant @ i-avenue

As I was searching for food around bayan lepas area, I fumbled upon this Bravo Italian Restaurant at i-avenue, BJ which is a bit alien to most of my friends.
Initially, I was very excited and wanted to ask my sis (she loves italian food) to try it out!

But it was a great dissapointment after being attracted with the reasonable set lunch deal, Rm16.90++.
I ordered Hawaiian chicken.
Being health/fat conscious, I asked the waiter if it was deep fried or grilled. He told me it was pan-fried but to my great great dissapointment, it came out to be ordinary kopitiam version of deep fried chicken chop. :'(

Soup was good as there were 'real' stuff inside like pototatoes and mushrooms.
Other than that, nothing great to shout about.

Coffee is from the nescafe machine, Ice cream was locallly made Corn ice-cream, and the garlic bread (baguette) tasted weird -> i don't know what kind of spices they put, but it tasted very much like fungus.

Hey Penang tua pui.. no worries, it wasn't you guys that misled me. If you read my post again, it was the PRICE that attracted me. And it's really hard to find cheap italian food.

Tiramisu -> it was not in the set lunch, so I didn't try. :D
And i LOVE tiramisus!! -> u can also try the one in EQ.. it's really GOOD!

And, thanks a lot for engaging with the owner. I think my sis would love to try that place if the set lunches have been improved. :D

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…
