Jalan2 Cari Makan: Desserts

Since it was walking distance from the wantan mee shop, we went searching for Kafe Dajie at China Street (Lebuh Cina) Unit 80-82.
Its along the row of vegetarian shops near to the Kuan Yin Temple.

As soon as I walked in, I asked the owner if the mango dessert are made out of real mangoes.
She went .. "yaya."

Nothing fanciful but a Peanut dessert .

I'm a fan of Hui Lau Shan.
I would wish at least the quality is similar.
For Rm4.50, I would expect something not-too-bad even though it's not a franchise.
The first thing we saw was the presentation.
I still dream of the shaved mango ice in Food Loft, Gurney plaza.
The ice here is rough like any other ice kacang at any other kopitiam.

Needless to say, there were no mangoes!
Only the puree and mixed can fruits!!
hey, i want real fruits ya!?
I think New world park, Swatow Lane would do a better job than this.!
The Durian wasn't authentic enough.
But surprisingly, my friend liked the soursoup puree. blerk.
And at the end of everything, after squashing and half eating, the whole bowl looked like saliva all over.

I was wondering why there were so many BUBBLES.
According to the science student, it's the chemical reaction.
Oh well, I thought my bowl of dessert would look overly disgusting. Not until I see the other bowls.
The durian and the soursops. Just imagine the colors and anyone would understood what I mean here!

Spitting Saliva ALL OVER~~!

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…
