Another canton-i story?

I have never expected myself to dine at Canton-i again.
I still think it's expensive to eat a plate of Rm12.80 wantan mee in Penang, when we can get really good ones about RM2.50.

It's Rm10 difference.
And even a glass of plain water costs Rm1~.

But there was a die-hard Canton-i fan in our midst.
So, nevermind la, we dined and enjoyed the meal.
Sometimes it's OK to dine with someone who likes the meal. At least my friend would be happy dining together with us.

What matters most is friendship, not the $$ I have to fork out from my wallet.
Lucky thing CIMB/Direct access card holders is still entitled 10% discount. *muax*

I have been waiting patiently for my noodles to come by.
Someone told me the char siu mee is nice.
So, I'm giving canton-i a SECOND CHANCE.
Since they have mixed (char siu and siu yok - bbq pork and pork belly), so I might as well try all these at one go.
I think I know what they meant that the 'meat' that they liked.
I should be able to get it anytime at Hong Kong; most of the restaurants serve the kind of texture canton-i has, in fact has more lean meat than canton-i.

Probably, if they have a taste of Hong kong foods, they won't think that canton-i is the best, then again, it's the NEAREST which we can find.

My other two friends still insists on the wan tan mee, so I took a picture of that too~

Be more adventurous and try the fried turnip (to me, it's char kuey kak).
Again, we are paying RM12.80 quality instead of the roadside hawker's Rm2.50.

Difference is, the price and the 'hard work' that the chef puts in it.
At least the quality control is there.

Honestly, i dont' know if they would kill me for posting their pics.

But then again, it's nice make up and hairdo that we paid for!! (RM30 ok??~)
Who knows, canton-i may ask permission from me for these pictures.

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…
