A tanned afternoon at Bondi Beach

It was early in the morning and I decided to have an early walk at the CBD for a quick breakfast.

I thought it'd be good to try their subway breakfast set - coffee, sandwich and choc chip cookie.
I love the coffee in OZ, maybe because of the milk, and it's cheap too!

There was another fast food, Oporto, right at the Central St, which I have never had before..
Just some plain burger with a bacon in between.

That's the beginning of the journey, the Coogee beach. And this is the tour guide from wake up hostel. I was told that we were going to walk to Bondi Beach.

A quick stop at the bronte beach. Some had ice cream.
I just sat and took pictures.

Bronte beach

Some houses by the coastal walk
No time for pictures.. most of the time, i have to walk, and the tour guide really had quick feet. I never seemed to be able to catch up.
Cemetery - I guess both chinese and aussies have one thing in common - to have their graves situated by the sea up on a hill

Peaceful and clean....
It was a long 1.5 hour walk from coogee beach to bondi beach, and here is some road signs to ensure that we are not lost (how can i ever get lost walking along the coastal?)

We continued our walk.
Some school excursion having some treasure hunt. I think they wee supposed to get some clues to answer the questions in the questionaire.

Reaching bondi beach soon. *cheers*

There are lockers and shower rooms available at Bondi Pavilion.

phewit.. bikini girls!!!!
It's a lot of chips but i do not know why i had to sit by the side of the road to eat my take-away.

And after that, I boarded the bus back.. One thing to remember, we need to always give seats to the elderly in the bus.

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…
