I feel stupid

We are always reminded that God made each of us unique and special in our very own ways.
But, I just can't stop thinking how foolish I am sometimes in life.

I made the wrong decisions.
I reacted wrongly.
And there are times where I would feel totally hopeless and in doubt with even the simplest things in life.

Few weeks ago, it was my very first time involving in an accident.
I didn't know what to do, but to get the car plate no. and the contact no. of the person.
I was just too tired to even feel shock about the incident.
My mind just went *shit*.

After calculating the charges, and after being reminded to just report to the police, I just did and leave it all to them to do that they want. Now I know how important we should keep a copy of our insurance policy and garan so that if anything happens, we could get it done straight away (and of course, many contacts of mechanics).

I was just driving my mom's car for 3 weeks, and didn't realised that I was driving with a rather flat tyre. Tyre was patched, the front tyres were changed, brake pads were changed. What else?

I just feel that I have so lack of knowledge not only about cars, but generally, things in life.
If only I could stay ignorant about life...

And somehow, I just realised how lacking I am with the word and quickly read ODJ again :)

Ya, I know what you mean. I also feel very inadequate about being ignorant of things that ‘full-grown adults’ like us should know – eg. cars, $$$ investments etc.

I guess we just gotta learn as we go along. When the need arises, we will automatically be forced to learn it. My relative was sharing how her husband used to take care of the car maintenance for her and her daughter. It was only after he died, that they were suddenly forced to learn about car maintenance etc. and she says, now both her and her daughter have become ‘experts’! :)

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…
