Clinic Cafe, Gurney Plaza, Penang

It is pretty interesting to have a clinic cafe at Gurney Plaza.
I'm surprised that there is still crowd there, mainly patroned by women and teenagers.
Why would we want to pay a visit to a clinic when we are still well?
Anyway, they have pretty doctors and nurses to assist us (service is not-too-bad).
They do have a range from western to chinese, and I would say that the price is pretty reasonable for a theme restaurant in a shopping mall.

Need help with the wheelchair?

Clinic Specialist RM8.80

Ketchup in the Syringe

Clinic Sandwich - Rm7.80

Clinic Crispy Chicken salad - RM11.80

Doctor & Nurse (kaya and butter toast bread) - RM2.80

Our drinks

Our orders.
It was quite difficult to get attention from the waiters/waitresses.
I actually suggested them to get the buzzers like the ones in pizza hut :)

we had bad experience there.Food n service was bad.In fact the names of the food is dull n not innovative.They r just playing with the medical profession like the kidney dishes n the respectable stethoscope lying on the table.Too bad that theme restaurants had gone down to so low level.

My family experienced unhygenic and poor attitude of the waitresses. My son's got eggshell and newspaper cutting in the fried rice. Upon complaning, unhappy faces from waitress and was changing full bill with service charge into the bill. Cashier throw my change on the counter not happy with my feedback. Asked to see the Manager, replied NO MANAGER in restaurant. Took the rude staff picture but challenge me by taking my pics too. Sigh........what suck attitude for a restaurant that opens only barely a month plus and also advert their outlet in THE STAR on 15/09/10 claiming everything about their eatery place. I hope relevant authourities should reprimand by closing this outlet.

they should waive your bill and replace your order with a new one.

hopefully the owner/manager would be able to read your comments here..

Bad is also what we had experienced.From toilet cafe to clinic?what else maybe a police station setting cafe.Whether the authorities willa llow people or the public to impersonate as police officers with handcuffs etc etc just like what they had pla doctors n beliitle n look down on this noble profession.They should make a police cafe or like maybe some one suggetsed a coffin shop cafe!!!omg.But its true this restaurant sucks.Y r still the naive n immature taking so many photos.R they coming from the ulu!!!

Hi Anonymous..

I have not seen a coffin restaurant yet, but have definitely heard about the Coffin bread.
Coffin Bread (棺材板) is one of taiwan's famous cuisine.

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 :)

First trip of the year 2016 -- Hatyai

Following the previous day trip to Dannok, I finally had a short vacation in Hatyai, This is probably one of my many trips to Hatyai, but this time, I didn't really spend a lot of time around Lee Gardens Hotel area.

I've never really blogged on the details of my journey to Hatyai, so here it is...

Going through the immigration is much easier compared to the immigration at the airport. In the past, I have always gotten the immigration form (They call it the 'white card') from the money changers at Changloon. In fact, it is easily accessible at the immigration office on the left hand side. Parking is also easy and free while awaiting for our passports to be stamped.

Danok is always famous for pork leg rice. So here it is. I love the sweet and sour chilies.

The chicken kuih chiap along the way. It tasted like bak kut teh compared to the normal kueh chiap dish.

After lunch, i finally managed to checked in to Wungnoy Hotel. I would recommend this hotel, as it felt more like…
