Penang, being the Best State in Malaysia

I enjoy Church visiting.
It was one of the Sundays that I thought I should visit another church.
It was a small church with a congregation of less than 100. I didn't manage to do a count, but I think, it was about 50ish.

I was exactly on time. The usher greeted my friend and I and asked if we were first time visitors. Since It was a small church, I guess, it's easy to spot visitors.

They had all a church should have.
Music, Tambourines, dancers, worship team and even a mother's room. It has been a real long time since I heard loud sound of shofars and the tambourines being struck.
But, I felt as if I was in a church in the yester-years since it was still using the over-head projector (OHP).

The pastor reminded me the importance to proclaim and believe.
These are the words he said,

"Malaysia is the best country in the world, and
Penang is the best state in Malaysia".

So, I should also tell myself,
"I am the most beautiful woman in Penang (also in Malaysia, and the world)."

Both of us have our versions of 'The BEST'.

After all, we are ALL beautiful in God's eyes, as God created man in his own image.
All in all, what we see we are is what we perceive ourselves.
So why worry about having that muffin top while wearing one of our favourite Jeans? Or the extra wrinkle or acne scar or even pigmentation (I had one!)?

God had given us the assurance that we are looking good as God sees our heart and not the outward appearance.

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…
