My Eagerness Kills my Enthusiasm

I was all geared up and rushed all the way from town (church) to Bayan baru (Sunshine Square).

I calculated my last donated date - 5 July, 84 days (12 x 7 weeks) and it was already closed to 90 days (6 days earlier).
But, sadly, the doctor/medical personnel calculated it differently. They took today's date, 27 Sept to 5 Oct.
Thus, it'd ended up be 3 + 5 days.

Reason for doctor's rejecting my blood:
1. She will reject whatever which is 1 week earlier (but it was 6 days only - dont' u know maths, MISS DOCTOR)
2. I'm a woman donor
3. Protecting the donor (protect what?)
4. I will faint and get dizzy for the next few days
(despite I donated more than 10 times.....)

I'm pretty discouraged.
And, hospitals -> stop asking us to donate. I tried to donate, but the doctor didn't want my blood despite it was just 1 week earlier :(
I think I'd only donate blood in a yearly basis.
I'm dissapointed with the reasons given with no strong basis.

But someone once told me that under-performed doctors are usually being assigned to the BLOOD BANK. Haha. That explains!
The most daring thing they would do is to protect the donors.
They are protecting healthy people... &#$@# -> If this is what they could only do after obtaining their medicine degree.

com'on .. yea.. its kinda bad..
its like you missed the 100 meters just by a whisker. but whats it up with that doc anyways? it not like it would be that bad to take it. i mean . like even though they say 12x7 weeks.. it only means close to that period of time to get the blood quanitity back i think . for some people you get it back early and for some a lil bit later. but i think they didn't do it cause they didn't really want your blood level to drop super-low. cause they have got no clue to wether you have replenished completely or not i guess.

im guessing here.. i was never the good citizen.. never did this blood donation thing.. it kinda scares me.. :S.

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…
