Jalan2 Cari Makan: Wantan Mee Variety

I was browsing some blogs and read about how much the blogger bragged about the wantan mee stall at Church Street, opposite Peranakan Heritage centre. The kopitiam has the same name as the budget hotel, ENG LOH.

Surprisingly, my sister had been there for lunch. According to her, the place is famous for its variety.

So, here we go.
We went, and the other friend who came along was pretty excited on our way.
As soon as we reached the destination, she went like, "THIS ONE??"
Darn.... big dissapointment for all, because she has been to the place, except me.

So, there we go.
We ordered some toasts with half boiled eggs (RM2.80) and interesting roti taiwan (RM3.20) which happened to be toast with lots of butter, peanut butter and nuts.

If you have high cholestrol, don't ever try it. But if you are a peanut butter lover (me, me, me), please do try !! It's really good and thick!!
I love it!!

As when my friend took out her Nikon, the wantan mee owner thought that we are some columnist, and going to do a write up about the place and post it on the internet.
She kept insisting us to take picture, in mandarin.
According to another friend, they are from KL (gee.. penang food? from kl?? argghh... i'm cheated!!!).
The sui kow which they claimed to be super good -> hm.. i told her she should put more 'prawns', but she went like, it's only RM0.70 per piece!!
What made their wantan mee so special was it was made out of only flour and egg (no water added). But then again, I don't make noodles, so I don't really know if in actual fact, water is added.

Drunken chicken which is supposed to be famous (RM3.50)
But I dont' really like drunken chicken :P

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).

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…
