Sydney Buildings

It was my last day at the city.
I met a lady at the Hillsongs Sisterhood meeting and she told me I should go and do some shopping at QVB. Yeah, I was thinking I should take another city walk before I board the plane.

Oh dear, it was so long ago that I took this picture, but I think it should be the clock tower of Westin.
Westin area.
I love long corridors.

The Strand, which is also an arcade since 1891.
Wow. That's Ancient.

Along George St.

The entrance of QVB (Queen Victoria Building)

The antique tiles of QVB. It did remind me of our Penang's E&O hotel.

The clock.
Why do I see clock everywhere?

The glass window panes
Pretty fascinating. Even though I've almost zero knowledge about architecture, I think Australia (Sydney or Melbourne) is a good place to start with.

School Kids at the Pyrmont bridge.
Some actually do their routine jogs here (yes, at 1pm in the afternoon). I do not know why they do that, I see people jogging at the Royal Botanic Gardens at 1pm too!

Cheers! I miss you, Sydney.

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.

An afternoon at Dannok

Living at the northern side of Malaysia makes it really convenient and easy to go 'overseas'. For us, going to our neighboring country, be it Thailand or Singapore by land or by flight is really easy. I'm always a fan of Thai food, and with the remaining Thai bahts that I had since my last Bangkok trip (which I didn't finish even crossing the border a couple or times), I decided to go Dannok for FOOD again. So, it's a day trip or rather, half day tour to Dannok

For the past few weeks, I was searching for insta / blog /facebook posts if there is any other new hangouts in Dannok, but sadly, I couldn't find many bloggers who write about it. The funny part is, I already blogged about it two years ago.

The immigration complex in Malaysia is new. I nearly couldn't recognize it, while passing to get our passport checked.

As I didn't want to drive over, we parked our car at the Zon Duty Free. As I entered, I took the wrong ticket (which parking rate is RM3/hour…

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).
