Confession of a Silent Thief

Back in primary school, I used to be really poor.
I dont have much pocket Money.
Someone introduced me in 'taking things' indirectly -> for that case, taking things from home.
Although I knew it was not morally right, somehow, I got a little desperate.
I wanted so much to own those cute little stickers, cute little book marks, cute little autograph books, cute little memo pads, cute little toys... and etc etc.
I only had a few of those and it was not exactly the prettiest.

After school, sometimes, I follow my mom to the stationary shop.
There, when the shop owner was busy, i tried to pick small items into my POCKET!!
I think I took once before.

Whenever I return the shop, I'd be reminded of that incident.

And, this is an untold tale.
Now it's TOLD and PUBLISHED.

Of course, I absolutely regretted.
I have learnt to understand children behaviour.
If they do not get what they want, they may resort to get it in other ways, without thinking of the consequences.
Very often, my life - even as an adult, I would want to escape from the reality.
I maybe trapped in the worst SIN in life.

The most important thing, that I've learnt to overcome it and to get over it.
God is always forgiving and we could re-start our lives again. :)

It's never too late......

Maybe just quietly pays more at that shop when you visit next time. Might get rid of the guilt feeling. Better yet, donate the money to someone in need.

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…
