Shanghai Ding House of Dumpling

Since its opening at queensbay, I have never visited this place because I'm never a fan of chinese food. An uncle colleague liked to eat chinese food, so we decided to pay a visit to this place.



And, there we go, having the 'cheaper' version of Siu Long Bao than Dragon-i.


And of course the roasted pork and the pork belly stuff.
I liked the buns and the sauce -> really felt good having them in my tummy but those porky stuff is way too fattening.

The siu yok was a bit small and I think the siu yok rice at the hawkers are better.


But they have some cute dimsum (minus the porks - yes I dont really like minced pork - I can steam it myself).

The pokey buns with custard fillings were nice and the thorns were done really well!
Of course, the mango cheese balls.



La Mien - Comparing it with competitor?
But, I think it was so-so. Please cut down on MSG OK?
It's too salty for my likings..


Nom nom..
And the fried turnips (loh bak gou) which is so much cheaper than canton-i.
(of course, I still prefer buying from hawkers)

Drinks - so far so good..

One main reason that I decided to blog about this because the boss was so generous to us that he gave us TWO big bowls of complimentary mango sago dessert.
That's a lot!
Even 15 people couldn't finish them all.
If wasn't due to time constraint, I would be licking the two bowls....
Maybe because it was free, I felt that it was really yummy.
Not too sweet and the shaved ice was made right to my tounge; except that the sago was frozen.
I still recommend people to visit as I feel that customer service is very important!
At least, it was a moment of magic for me.
Some companies have 10% - we dont have as HR didn't apply for us.
I must speak to HR to write a letter to them for 10%!

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…
