Blue Mountains, NSW

Initially, I thought of commuting via public transport, but since there was a day tour available which costs only $60, I was thinking, I might as well just follow instead of getting lost in between.

And there, the guide brought us the the most BLUE-est mountain.. .
introducing the blue mountains of New South Wales..

the three sisters

The 3 sisters + 2 sisters.

it looked as if she's at the cliff... and the fact that she was...

was it the king's table or something of that sort?

it's some famous tree
the aboriginal which isn't from blue mountains

We did some hikes (approximate 40 mins) and came by a waterfall.
As usual, the angmohs would take a dip with the bikinis and me the typical asian would just stand aside and take pictures of almost anything of the surroundings..

While we are at it... there were lunch provided. My packed lunch provided by the day tour.

Then we dropped by at the Scenic World and had the 2nd round of hike.
Some hike down for the Katoomba Rail ride, but for me, I hike all the way up again (and took the wrong way - the longer route)


scenic cable

most expensive train ride in NSW

This is where the rail begin..
and suddenly, i see many tour groups (mainly older folks) after another long hike (another 40 mins?? or perhaps more) from the scenic railway entrance

Echo.~.. Helloo~
Some tour guides actually asked their tours to shout for some echoes

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…
