First Experience with FireFly

It has been many many years since I last visited Subang Airport.
Probably 20 years?

And after revamping the place.. this is what we see..



Small but still OK lah.

Strange, they have HUGE TV display, but there is no flight information.
I depended on my boarding pass printed like a receipt.

More renovation outside..

I boarded at the waiting area. It was a quiet place. I heard LCCT is very noisy like Puduraya.
I was the only one with the camera snapping picutres, until the 3 men looked at me.


Now that we could board... we have to walk out to board into the fokker aircraft.
What if it rains? Any backup plans?

hmm... I see lots of umbreallas -> can i take them home?
As I board, I could see my 3kg pink luggage that I checked in.

Drinks or Food?
Orange juice and Muffin!

The buckle with firefly logo.



I wanted to laugh looking at the propeller....
And, it was an empty plane.
Smaller than a bus but comfortable!


Perfect Landing @ Penang International Airport.
Bravo!.
p/s: Their service could be improved if they would use English instead of Malay during the demo on emergency landing. Why is it necessary to use Malay?
But... the rest of the announcements were bi-lingual.
Ok. after reviewing FireFly, will I get free tix from FireFlY?
Sometimes I dont' understand why I'm doing this for free.. :D

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…
