Peipei with Old Town Kopitiam Lunch Sets

It's her last day at work.
She's so lucky to have an opportunity coming along.
All the best gal!

So, I followed her along with her colleagues for a farewell lunch at Old Town Kopitiam (bayan baru penang), which was agreed upon earlier. Since I've never tried their lunch sets, thus, I have the habit of snapping some pictures of the food.

The garlic toast was specially ordered for her.

My Pan mee set.
The set comes with a pepsi drink but I added RM1 for a chilled non-sugar white coffee.
The thing I like about old town kopitiam or kim gary is at least they can make my white coffee sugar-less, unlike some cloned kopitiam stalls (what they usually have is the packet drink or teh peng/teh ais).
Sadly, panmee does not taste like the handmade panmees I usually take. Dont have the 'umph' in it and the soup given is the hor hee soup!

Peipei had her curry rice.

Hor Hee Set - as advertised on the radios, which is the equivalent of ipoh kaysee hor fun (Ipoh minced chicken meat flat noodles)

The pepsi cup with old town white coffee logo.

Funny pic ..
I tried to take a picture of the float from this guy.
He ended up stuck at the background.

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…
