Georgetown (City) Bayview Hotel - Tea time promotion 9.90

It was one of those RM9.90++ tea time promotion in Georgetown Bayview (formerly known as City Bayview). We needed a place for reunion thus I suggested this place :)

When it comes to buffet, I usually do not decorate my plate, and my plate/meal would end up having a platter of food that comprises of sweet and savoury ones.

They had some pasembur, nyonya kuihs, sandwiches, cakes and jellies.
As always, the carbs (fried noodles/rice and this time, they had hokkien mee) are usually out of my list.

I purposefully took the photo of the guy grabbing the fork as he didn't keep any cakes for me :(
Anyway, there are always refill thus a RM11.40 tea time is really not too bad.

However, the place is always packed with senior citizens and teenages, thus, to avoid dissapointment, we need to book in advance.

Lastly, rojak was the best! At least the chilli shrimp paste is thick and tasty..

those cakes looks soo nice. it sounds really economic. if that was me. i wouldnt be able to control. i would have had a bit of everything over there. soo nice. im a bit allergic to prawns so thats one thing off that list. but it looks like a really nice place. but why do you avoid carbs?

nitin: no - cakes are not healthy - but it's a therapy for me.
ck lam: you are welcome but don't have much expectation on the environment as it gets pretty noisy with the crowd

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).

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…
