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 :)

First trip of the year 2016 -- Hatyai

Following the previous day trip to Dannok, I finally had a short vacation in Hatyai, This is probably one of my many trips to Hatyai, but this time, I didn't really spend a lot of time around Lee Gardens Hotel area.

I've never really blogged on the details of my journey to Hatyai, so here it is...


Going through the immigration is much easier compared to the immigration at the airport. In the past, I have always gotten the immigration form (They call it the 'white card') from the money changers at Changloon. In fact, it is easily accessible at the immigration office on the left hand side. Parking is also easy and free while awaiting for our passports to be stamped.


Danok is always famous for pork leg rice. So here it is. I love the sweet and sour chilies.


The chicken kuih chiap along the way. It tasted like bak kut teh compared to the normal kueh chiap dish.


After lunch, i finally managed to checked in to Wungnoy Hotel. I would recommend this hotel, as it felt more like…
