I have got Temperature!!

My company started a stupid policy to start measuring temperatures of their employees.
I have checked with my other friends who work in other US MNCs do not have such practice.

Perhaps, the management wants the security guards to have more work. Besides, after 2 major rounds of lay-offs, from 1k over employees down to probably less than 300 people now, the guards would be alright when it comes to their work load.

Yesterday morning, after taking a very 'THICK' cup of VICO drink for breakfast.
I realised that my body started to have some weird reaction.
I started to gulp more water as my throat was feeling really dry and sore. WORST still, I started feeling extremely cold; I blame the aircon!
Nevermind, I waited for 5.15pm to leave the office immediately.

Had a good sleep from 6pm-10pm despite, occasionally, I had my sister that stood beside while I was sleeping disturbing me.

Woke up and checked my temperature using the clinical thermometer that my previous company gave during SARs time:

OOps!! 38.2!!
I cant to go to work !!

I really hated to go to panel clinics as they have the worst doctors in the world.
I went in LESS than a minute.

My conversation:
Doctor: Please sit down . What's wrong?
Me: I have fever and if my temperature is > 38, I'm not allowed to enter the plant/office.
Doctor: WHY?
Me: That's the procedure that the company set.
Doctor: What else?
Me: I have sore throat

Doctor: Open your mouth. (he just used a torch light and looked) OK.

And that's all!!!!!!
I was given antibiotics and I'm refusing myself to take it.
I dont' need antibiotics! It's bad stuff!
All I needed was Medical Certificate!

And this type of bottle still exists??

Woke up today.
Fever subside.
Hooray.. I will go to work tomorrow!

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 :)

First trip of the year 2016 -- Hatyai

Following the previous day trip to Dannok, I finally had a short vacation in Hatyai, This is probably one of my many trips to Hatyai, but this time, I didn't really spend a lot of time around Lee Gardens Hotel area.

I've never really blogged on the details of my journey to Hatyai, so here it is...

Going through the immigration is much easier compared to the immigration at the airport. In the past, I have always gotten the immigration form (They call it the 'white card') from the money changers at Changloon. In fact, it is easily accessible at the immigration office on the left hand side. Parking is also easy and free while awaiting for our passports to be stamped.

Danok is always famous for pork leg rice. So here it is. I love the sweet and sour chilies.

The chicken kuih chiap along the way. It tasted like bak kut teh compared to the normal kueh chiap dish.

After lunch, i finally managed to checked in to Wungnoy Hotel. I would recommend this hotel, as it felt more like…
