Transportation in Hong Kong

For the sake of convenience while travelling, remember to get an Octopus card (Pat Dat Tong). At least we don't have to worry about loose change.

1. Hong Kong MTR
It's cool to learn that there is a 'special' discount to gain its' customers to take MTR instead of the Ferry.
We could go to some stations to scan for HKD2 rebate.
So far, I know of Central (nearby SoHo) for Central Station and Harbour city (near supercity supermarket) for Tsim Sha Tsui Station.
Central To TST is quite expensive - HDK7++!!
I only realised that after I scanned my octi card then.
I rather take the ferry!! only HKD1.70!!

2. Hong Kong Ferry
HKD2.20 for upper deck and HKD1.70 for lower deck.
I tried both the rides many many times..... since I traveled between Central and Tsim Sha Tsui very often...

3. Hong Kong Bus
I took A21 (HKD33) from the airport to TST - Very reasonable compared to Taxi (it'd be ~HKD300)

4. Cable car -
It's Ocean Park.. !
(another place is Ngong Ping 360)

6. Taxi - never took one !
7. Peak Tram
HKD33 from Central to The Peak (return).
Regretted taking the bus ride (bus fare aint cheap either - about ~HKD10) - I nearly wanted to puke and same goes to my sister!
Take the Tram up if you have motion sickness~!
8. Hong Kong Tramways
- I paid only HKD2 for the ridefrom Causeway bay to Shau Kei wan back to Central. Had a discovery 2 hour ride.

Random .... nearby Sogo, Causewaybay

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…
