OXO Cafelab, Queensbay Penang

It's a monthly celebration for my department.
It'd be quite a headache not to repeat the same venue everytime we celebrate birthdays almost every month.

Since OXO is a new place, I might as well take a try on it. It was my 3rd visit to this place.

Although I've read many blogs that complained so much about their services, surprisingly, I didn't felt that it was a problem, especially today.

Oh well, it was a budget thingy, below Rm20/pax for us, so this place is the most suitable!!
Give some credits la..
Don't expect 5-star services, but they are still attentive enough to the needs of the customers.

Lisa from OXO had been really sweet to me.
Even though it was just the 13 of us, we managed to get the whole of upstairs by ourselves, and she even snapped pictures of the place that she was about to reserve for me. *aww*

Some random shots of the food served:
Drinks, Soup/Salad, Chicken chop, Pan Fried Chicken (Tasted like soya chicken to me), Spaghetti oglio-olio, dessert (watermelon, cookies and a piece of cake)

They were nice to have the birthday girls to wear some cute hats and sang a birthday song for them.
Not only that, we had this complementary birthday cake!

i think the deep fried chicken chop is not bad - at least for the one i tried had a special batter that made it so crispy like keropok

Actually I had been there once only, but I find that the service is not up to standard par, and the taste of the food is out, the fried food is over oil and over cooked. Is not a place that I will recommending.

The food ... so-so only. Not really anything fantastic to note any higher. I guess the food is too diversified... out of focus? It's a budget place... the staff and manager have been friendly so far. Service is a bit to complain about, but hey ... they are still new. I guess they have brushed up by now.

steven: fried food - was that the fried fish or chicken chop?
i find that the fried fish not very good but the surprisingly, the chicken chop had a different taste.

julie: Yups... i 101% AGREE with u la.. hehe. :P, my friend was complainin about the waitress (the same waitress.. *ahem) how un-trained she is.., but i think they weren't had good pay/training, i guess. hehe .: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…
