Manly Beach - for Sunset


Manly Beach is one of the favourite spots for aussies for surfing and a relaxation place, apart from the Bondi Beach.

Interestingly, the mode of transport is the Ferry.
Just hop to the manly ferry from the Circular Quay.
Either we could get a day tripper ticket or get just the tickets itself at the counter.

Everyone fought for the best seats for the best view

The Manly Wharf
some shots from the manly ferry

we could catch a good view of the sydney harbour bridge and the opera house

They have Gelatissimo kiosks.. I'm fascinated .

The picture speaks for itself. A quick shot outside the Manly Wharf


ta-da
not many bikini girls here.. most of them here are for leisure walks..



The corso - the promenade situated in between the beach and the wharf.

Wheeee.... my jump shot

And what made Manly beach so special was admiring the sunset (catching the 6.40pm ferry).
It was really amazing to see the sun sets, to see the sky color changed from bright blue to red to dawn.

And, I tried pretty hard to catch some night shots (and obviously, I failed terribly)

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…
