Buffet Lunch at Northam Suite

I've seen the 20% promotion for all buffets (30% for senior citizens) at Coffee house, Northam Suite, Penang for quite some time.

Since it's an occassion for my family, thus, I got my family to join the buffet.

As I enter into the coffee house, I felt that they are short-handed of staff, and the variety for a japanese buffet is just not there. Worst still, there isn't much a crowd there. They were lucky to have a table with a big group ~20 people that would at least cover up their operating cost.

Unique part was - they had avocado, crabs, smoked salmon and chawan mushi.

Their octopus is not fresh.
Same goes to the jackfruit (I think it was preserved).

The cakes - I only liked their cheese cake but the rest of it was dry and not to my likings.

Worst part, I see the rice-bug on it's sushi. Using an octopus which is not fresh would not make a good sushi, worst still, there is not enough of vinegar taste.

Green tea ice cream - yum yum! - that was the thing that made my tummy REAL satisfied!
It's not exactly a place people would crave for, but if I run out of places to go... I think I might go due to its affordable price.

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…
