Langkawi Cable Car

I have always wanting to re-visit Langkawi since my last trip was 10 years ago.
And, I have always wanted to visit the suspension bridge that many had bragged about.
I finally had my chance to sit in the gondola to have a feel of Langkawi cable car.
I had to practically wait for the rain to stop and for the cable car to start operating again.

It was at mid-span that we were stopped for photo shooting.
The place is getting really cloudy covered with thick mist.

I could hardly see what's down, but the view of the sea was superb.
And the above is the suspension bridge and sky walk.
By the time I reach the suspension bridge, all I felt was just strong wind blowing against me.

It was as if I was floating.

Hair was wet.
As if I was at The Peak, Hong kong.
AND, it was just 652.5 meter above sea level.

I was chased away since it was too dangerous to take a stroll along the bridge.
Got to take a walk/hike all the way back to the main station.

Since it was a long queue going down (due to rain), i cut queue and sat beside a group of pakciks and makciks from Pahang.
They too, had their holiday.
And, it was free and easy for them.
I told them, I came all the way to see 'nothing' and just 'sit' on the cable car for fun.......
They also felt the same, and they didn't mind :)

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…
