A Romantic Evening with Sydney

Walked along the City the night before and saw that Maloney's Hotel was having buffet promotion, maybe it was less than $20 per person.

That night when we went, there weren't anymore buffet, but dinner there is pretty affordable
Trying their steak. It was really cheap, probably below $10.

No beer but I could ask for sky juice with squeezed lime for free.
Seems like Australian pubs are mostly self-service. Just wait for the buzz and walk over to the counter to get our food

And I ordered their dessert, I think it was some pancakes with cream.

It was our last night at Sydney. I really missed the place very much.
Sad that it was a short trip, but indeed, it was a journey packed with adventures.
For that moment, I thought I was on Travel and Discovery Channel.

Sydney was so dearie to me that I decided to walk along the CBD area until midnight.
It was getting cold and windy towards midnight, but that didn't stopped me from going on.
The walk was good, at least it was better than walking around King's Cross (which I didn't really like - haha..........)

Trying hard to pose with Harbour Bridge
I love the city lights. Just like Hong Kong, at the Arena of Stars.
Not forgetting Sydney Opera House
*high pitched voice*
I even walked to the Rocks
Some medical students having fun, probably it was orientation night.
I wish I studied there.
There was just so much fun.

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…
