Canon PhotoMarathon 2010 at Penang!

I'm so excited being a Canon user to participate for their 4th photo marathon. And, the best part was, it was it held in Penang! It does a lot of promoting on Penang as a heritage site, moreover, we have a lot of history to speak for Penang.

 Tall people standing infront of me. They don't see me and ocassionally, they would step on me without realising that there is an object infront of them.

Honestl, I'm impressed how organized the event turned out to be. They have printed ample of indemnity forms for us to fill up and had many helpers ready to assist us. Registration was quick and fast, that I didn't remember HAVING the free towel with me :(

My photo walk began with a heavy rain. Got to wait and wait. And here are some random pics..

 Pinang Peranakan Mansion - It's only Rm10 per admission (Church Street)
I tried to capture the sun ,but didn't know how. I guess i got to practice and read more.

 Penang is always with an old man riding a trishaw, with cigarette. :)

 Bon Ton cafe , Stewart lane
Honestly,  if you are  not from Penang, you wouldn't expect to see a cafe at this corner of the street.
 Love lane, where the all the affairs began

Penang Road Bag seller uncle posing very hard for me. I appreciated his help on this.

 And his friend sitting down posing for me too

 It was pouring heavily that I rested at the canon EOS boutique for more than 1 hour.

 Masjid Kapitan Keling - Don't miss this place if you are coming to Penang.
I was bypassing a Prize Giving Ceremony for Quran readers for the children. A lady was kind enough to offer us free sunquick. Couldn't expect more. What a true malaysian spirit.

 Nasi Kandar Beratur - which means you gotta queue up for your favourite Nasi Kandar
 I just love the color of this after a heavy downpour
The end of the event (which ended with a rain)

I did not win anything, but had an experience and a free service on my camera.

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…
